Mohan Bhagwat and new education model

These are two statements from the Sangh that need a close reading. RSS Sarasanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat has called for creating a new educational model and Sarakaryavah Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi asked the Hindus to rise above caste.

Bhagwat calls for creating universally acceptable education model

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Sarasanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat has emphasised on the need for creating a new educational model. The new model of education, according to Bhagwat, must be drawn from India’s rich ancient past and knowledge base. Bhagwat said the educational model should be universal in its appeal and would help producing better human beings.

Addressing a conference on ‘Nationalist Education: Concept and Structure,’ at Nagpur, the RSS chief said:

People are not happy with the education system. There is a worldwide view that the ways of teaching and learning require a comprehensive change.

They are all looking towards India for a new direction because in ancient times India was the greatest centre of learning. We have a huge responsibility. We held leadership position for centuries and now have to regain it.

Emphasising that education shapes the next generation and impacts whole of humanity, the RSS chief said the change in education system is much needed. Mohan Bhagwat said:

'Make it worth so that we don’t have to go to others seeking patronage but make others to come to us to adopt this model.'

Over 250 eminent academicians, including eight vice-chancellors, from all over the country attended the two-day conference organised by Ahmedabad-based Punarotthan Vidyapeeth.

Hindus need to rise above caste: Bhaiyyaji Joshi

RSS Sarakaryavah Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi said in order to make India a world leader, Hindus need to be united and the Hindu society needs to be strengthened.

Addressing a Social Harmony Meet at Jammu on November 23, Joshi said individually every citizen should work for social harmony. The RSS Sarakaryavah asked the Hindus to rise above caste and stand together as a society. Joshi said, 'Every member of Hindu society should be equally respected.'

Several socio-religious leaders, social activists attended the meet and discussed the mechanisms and dimensions to achieve social harmony.
