Soon college students will read literary works from North East along with the region`s history as the University Grant Commission has advised universities to include the same in their curricula. Students will also read about various famous personalities from North East who fought in India`s freedom struggle.

Apart from the North East Zone Cultural Centre`s National Cultural Exchange Programme (NCEP) to create awareness about the culture of the North Eastern Region, students from other parts of the country will also spend time in the region to better understand and appreciate its culture.

NEW DELHI: The illustrious and mesmerising story of Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s sons, Chaar Sahibzaade is still propounded in the minds of the viewers. It has been that part of the history which was heart taking and most talked stories of the time.

The urge to know more about the story has now come to level, that NCERT has decided to make this as a part of the history books. From the next academic year, NCERT will include a full chapter narrating the story of The Chaar Sahibzaade.

As communicated by The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), there will be an inclusion of the chapter on ‘Char Sahibzaade’ in its syllabus from next year.

The Hon’ble Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi has also urged the council to issue the same from the next academic year. Directions have been given to accomplish the task before the new schooling sessions start.

The Secretary of the NCERT Major Harsh Kumar has informed about the appreciation he has received from the Director of NCERT for his efforts of including ‘Chaar Sahibzaade’ in their syllabus. He further added that new and innovative policy of education will help the students to learn better.

The suggestion will be placed before the expert committee while developing the syllabus for social science and history.

By adding such topics in the academic curriculum, students will understand the importance of historical events in a better and more appropriate manner.
