We must encourage children to question: Aamir Khan

Jan 10, 2010 IANS

Mumbai, Jan 10 (IANS) Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, who tackled the problem of dyslexia in his 2007 hit "Taare Zameen Par" and threw light on the pressure of studies in his latest outing "3 Idiots", Sunday called for encouraging children to question rather than just memorising facts.

"We put our children in compartments and teach them to memorise... We must encourage them to be free thinkers and free spirited. It has to start from the young age. We must encourage them to question and make mistakes. We must hear a child's view," Aamir said.

The 44-year-old was here at The Economic Times Awards. Click the Movie button below for more info:
