Children are like Missiles : Chief Guest Missile Scientist DRDO Dr. A. Ramachander Rao

A unique kind of competition called SIP Prodigy was organized on Sunday morning at Classic Convention in Shamshabad for 2500 children aged 6 to 12 years.

SIP Regional Prodigy 2023 Telangana competition was inaugurated by SIP Academy Managing Director Dinesh Victor and DRDO Missile Scientist Dr A. Ramachander Rao. Dr. Rao is also the father of SIP Academy Alumni.

Addressing the children on the occasion, the missile scientist Dr. A. Ramachander Rao said that children are like missiles. Missiles are of two types. One is a guided missile and the other is an unguided missile. We fire and forget the unguided missile. An unguided missile. when used, it may or may not reach the target. A guided missile has a GPS system. Also, it is onboard with the computer. Hence it will definitely hit the target with precision.

If children also study under proper guidance, they will be able to reach their goals easily. I can see Aryabhattas, Ramanujas and Shakuntaladevi in many of you. You are all math scientists. You may face failures in your endeavors. In English, FAIL is the short form of First Attempt In Learning. So see failures as stepping stones to success
