India Should Become ‘Vishwa Guru’ in Education: Venkaiah Naidu

NEP seeks to make Indian education holistic, multi-disciplinary, and practical

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said that the new National Education Policy (NEP) aimed to make India a global knowledge superpower and underlined the need for the country to again become a ‘Vishwa Guru’ in education.

He said that the NEP draws inspiration from the ancient Indian education system which focused on developing holistic and well-rounded personalities and thus seeks to make Indian education holistic, multi-disciplinary, and practical.

“The ancient education system always taught us to live in harmony with nature and respect all beings and non-beings. Our education was practical, wholesome, and complementary to life,” Naidu said while virtually addressing the 13th convocation of the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Agartala.

Calling upon higher education institutions and universities to make India a thriving hub of knowledge and innovation, the Vice President advised them to take up cutting- edge research in various fields, establish synergy with industries and other similar institutions, and turn campuses into exciting centers of creativity and research.

Recalling the advice of former President APJ Abdul Kalam to the youth to dream big, he asked the students to set goals and then strive hard to achieve them.

“You will succeed if you work with dedication, discipline, and sincerity without wavering from your chosen path. Students, researchers, and academicians, therefore, cannot afford to remain in a world of status quo. They have to constantly learn, update themselves, and innovate every day.”

“Enhancing public and private investments in research is of vital importance for creating a knowledge-driven society.”
