Ranchi, Apr 25 (UNI) After Mahendra Singh Dhoni, it is the turn of film star Farooque Shaikh to campaign for the 'School Chalein Hum - Abhyyan', to bring down the drop out rate of children going to school in Jharkhand.

The Jharkhand government roped in the film actor on the first day of the campaign, yesterday to enroll 20 children in Ranchi district.

Most of these children were out of school.

He participated in the campaign at the invitation of UNICEF and the Jharkhand government.

Addressing a gathering of parents and children, he said, ''India was currently undergoing major changes and the younger generation would reap the benefit tomorrow. One can say that India of tomorrow will be lovely, but only those who have the strength will succeed, adding that the strength will come from education. Those who miss out will watch from the windows,'' he added.

He also visited Madhukam and Tupudana.
