Veteran educationists discuss national education at the Manthan program
We aim to educate every child of the country: Prof. Dinesh Saklani
In the 75th year of independence, we are determined to take education to the top: Dr. Kulbhushan Sharma
Amidst the sound of 75 conch shells, top educationists of the country launched a campaign of taking national education to a higher level. Their aim is to make India a world leader and to educate every child of the country. The Manthan program was organized today by the National Independent School Alliance (NISA) at Indradhanush Auditorium, Panchkula. Haryana School Education Minister Kanwarpal Gurjar was the chief guest of the programme, while Director of NCERT Prof. Dinesh Saklani and Padma Shri Dr. Bharat Bhushan Tyagi were present as the special guests.
State Education Minister Kanwarpal Gurjar said that he was impressed by the sound of conch shells made from the stage for the betterment of education. This initiative of educationists is commendable. A team of Haryana Government was sent to Scotland for improvement in education. Today, after listening to the words of educationists at the Manthan program, it was felt that sending the team to Scotland was a waste of money and time. Impressed by NISA’s commitment regarding the education policy, the minister assured the school operators that the government would work with them for the betterment of education. After discussion with the Chief Minister, it has been decided that capable private schools should adopt some government schools. The government will extend full cooperation to them in this regard. He also said that the Haryana Government is committed to end the problems of private schools.
NCERT Director Prof. Dinesh Saklani said, “My dream and goal is that every child of the society should be educated. Indian civilization is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. We have a very proud history. On the strength of Vedic civilization and culture, we progressed in the world and were called Vishwa Guru. We have to return to our ancient culture to become Vishwa Guru once again. We have to work fast in the field of education by studying our scriptures and Upanishads.”
Pro. Saklani further said that we are working on the National Education Policy. The biggest need of today’s time is to educate the elders for the betterment of the children. There is a need to do selfless work in the field of education. The nation will be strong only with educated children. Efforts have already started in this direction. Soon the results will start coming.
Bharat Bhushan Tyagi said in his address that a lot of work needs to be done on agriculture and education. Society needs to think that what is the purpose of education? What goal do we want to achieve in education? Whether the child is able to connect with nature along with studies? It is the responsibility of educationists to upgrade education.
NISA President Dr. Kulbhushan Sharma said that the freedom struggle in the country started from Ambala in Haryana. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream is to see India as the Vishwaguru. We are working hard to fulfill PM’s vision. Today the country needs quality education, for which we are making all possible efforts. Children as well as private school teachers are also trained by NISA and scholarships are also provided as per rules.
The program was inaugurated by lighting the lamp by the chief guest. Arjuna Awardee and Billiards Champion Geet Sethi was also present on the occasion. In the cultural programme, children of several schools including Doon Public School enthralled the guests with dance and song presentations. The best performing students were felicitated by the chief guest.
