Balaji Swami, Head of ISV/Embedded Sales at open source software provider Red Hat Asia Pacific, expressed concern that reading has taken back seat in this era dominated by technology.

In his address at Dynamix-2016, the 7th Founders day of Camford International School, here last night, Balaji said that students now learn either by experimenting or by replicating another individual’s success and avoiding the mistakes that they have made. “In this era dominated by technology, reading has taken a back seat; we learn by observing others,” Balaji said.

The school recognised its students and staff for their exemplary performance at the function. Students from class one to nine and class eleven, who excelled in academics were awarded proficiency certificates, while those of class ten and twelve who achieved the highest academic accolade in the CBSE examination were formally felicitated by school chairman, N Arul Ramesh.
