October 22, 2014

On October 15, union home minister Rajnath Singh held westernised education concept brought by Britishers responsible for dealing a severe blow to the values and culture of the country and said the present system was not fulfilling the main objective of education.
Singh, while addressing a gathering at the Chopsani Schools centenary celebrations in Jodhpur said the main objective of the education is “comprehensive development of the personality” and lamented that the present education system was not fulfilling this objective.

Holding the westernised educational concept brought in by the Britishers, Singh said “this education system has dealt a severe blow to the values and culture of the country, for which, India has been recognised across the globe.”

Terming Indian culture to be unparallelled, Singh said Indian culture and value model is so rich and holistic that it thinks not only about the human being but everything on the planet, even if lifeless.

The union minister said everyone is one is blessed with unique talent and ability and there was a need to provide an opportunity to every individual.

“Unfortunately everyone does not have access to this opportunity,” he said while assuring that his government would provide the opportunity to all to identify and harness the talents and abilities of the students in the interest of the nation.

Singh said that we will have to realise the malicious intentions behind introducing the westernised educational model in our country.

Avoiding a direct criticism of Congress, Singh said that since independence, Indians have got only assurances.

“Had these assurances been converted into reality, the country would have been a recognised super power and a prosperous nation,” he said.
