PM Narendra Modi stated on Saturday that the new National Education Policy (NEP) is creating a forward-thinking and futuristic education system in India for the first time. And accused the past governments of not doing anything to regain the country’s lost glory due to their ”slave mentality”. Modi,
Hailing India’s ancient ‘gurukul’ (residential schooling) system of education, the Prime Minister said knowledge has been the highest purpose of life in the country, and added that saints and spiritual leaders helped revive the country’s lost glory in the field of education.
”You know very well that for India’s bright future, our existing education policy and institutes have a big role to play. Therefore, in this ‘amrit kaal’ of independence, whether it is about country’s educational infrastructure or policy, we are engaged in work at every level at a fast pace,” he said.
Premier educational institutes including IITs, IIITs, IIMs, and AIIMS are multiplying rapidly. According to PM Narendea Modi, the number of medical colleges has increased by more than 65% since 2014. The nation is establishing a forward-thinking, futuristic educational system under the new education strategy for the first time.
According to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul Sansthan has grown and now has more than 40 branches around the globe, offering more than 25,000 students access to facilities for secondary, undergraduate, and postgraduate study.
He continued. He stated that when India gained independence, it was our responsibility to restore India’s ancient glory and great pride in the field of education. “However, because of the slave mentality, governments did not move in that direction. And in some cases, they went in the opposite direction. In these circumstances, our saints and acharyas took up the task of fulfilling this duty to the country once more. ‘The Swaminarayan Gurukul is a living example of this opportunity,’ he says.
PM Modi said that India showed the way to the world by carrying out research in the fields ranging from ‘atma tattva’ to ‘paramatma tattva’, from spirituality to ayurveda, from social science to solar science, from maths to metallurgy, and from zero to infinity. Women scholars debated with their men counterparts at a time when the term ‘gender equality’ was not even born, he said
