Ramdev’s suggestion to Smriti Irani: Incorporate elements of traditional ‘Gurukul’ system in modern education

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has sent a detailed proposal to Human and Resource Development (HRD) minister, Smriti Irani, to amalgamate the traditional ‘Gurukul’ system with the modern education.

According to a news report, Ramdev’s confederate, Acharya Balkrishna, met the HRD minister on 9th April and submitted the proposal on behalf of the Yoga guru.

“This is not just our view. We have done a lot of research and found that several consultations of the government with the states and other consultative bodies such as Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) have found that there is a need for an education system that is a mix of modern curriculum and Indian culture and values. We have collected all of these suggestions to make a strong case for our idea,” Balkrishna told The Economic Times.

Balkrishna added that for the proposal, Acharyakulam, the school run by Ramdev in Haridwar, has been taken as a prototype. This school educates around 400 boys and girls from class five to seven in classical subjects like Sanskrit, the Vedas and the Shastras along with the NCERT syllabus.

A few months back, Ramdev had also presented the idea to ‘Indianise’ education. He put forward an idea of starting a new national school board similar to CBSE, but with an Indian name like, ‘Bhartiya Board of Secondary Education (BBSE).’

Balkrishna told the newspaper, “The government’s attitude is positive. We had a nice meeting with the minister in which she gave us a good hearing. Now it’s just a matter of implementation.”
