During the question and answer segment, Aditya was asked to respond to a quote from Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai “With guns, you can kill terrorists, with the education you can kill terrorism.”
“If you have the true knowledge of whom to follow and whom not to, that is where education will lead you to. If you get the knowledge of whom to follow and whom not to, you will never get into terrorism,” he said.
“Terrorism is nothing but just a mindset which has gone in the wrong way. You missed the self-belief, you go in a different way. Believe in yourself, choose your path wisely, and yes, do have education before you choose it,” he added.
His response to the question was lauded for its witty approach that eventually got him victory. It was the first time for India to win an international male competition of such magnitude.
‘Man of the World’ is organised by a reputed Manila-based Prime Event Productions Philippines (PEPPS) Foundation, which also mounts the annual Misters of Filipinas competition.
