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.
Pime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday attacked previous governments at the Centre for ruling the country like their “Sultanates”, neglecting its rich heritage.
“Past governments ruled like Sultans and neglected our rich heritage. They ignored our glorious civilisation and failed to pay attention to their preservation,” said Modi while addressing a public meeting in Balangir town in Odisha.
“This criminal error will always stick to the parties, who the country gave the opportunity to run governments for decades. Surprisingly, they have not taken lessons from this,” he added.
He also attacked the state government under Naveen Patnaik and said the benefits meant for the people should reach them on time and must not be used as an election tool.
This was Modi’s third visit to the state in the past three weeks and showed the importance that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was attaching to the state ahead of the general and assembly elections.
The Prime Minister said his government was committed to conserving and preserving the country’s rich cultural heritage.
He said his government has been constantly making efforts to bring back the idols stolen from the temples in India.
He also attacked the parties for opposing the International Yoga Day and the construction of the Statue of Unity.
“Some parties were against organising the International Yoga Day. These are the people who did not promote yoga. These people neither understand India nor tourism,” he added.
“They raised questions on erecting the statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. But, after becoming the world’s tallest statue, it has generated jobs for people residing around the structure.
“They were also against changing the names of islands in Andaman and Nicobar islands,” said Modi.
He said the central government has cancelled around six crore fake ration cards, gas connections, scholarships with wrong names, grabbing pension under wrong names over the last four years.
“We plugged these leakages, saving crores of rupees. All ration cards have been digitised and around 80 per cent of them have been linked with Aadhaar,” said the Prime Minister.
“The middlemen used to loot the money meant for poor. We have stopped this. We ensured everyone gets what they deserve,” he added.
The Prime Minister said there are people, who are angry because he has put a stop to their loot and corruption.
Highlighting the developmental works being carried out by the Centre in the state, he attacked the Odisha government for failing to utilise the District Mineral Foundation (DMF) fund in the mineral bearing areas.
“Odisha has Rs 4,000 crore in its DMF Fund which has remained unutilised so far. What has happened to the government? It is in deep slumber. The government of Odisha should ensure that the benefits reach the tribal people.
“Do not wait for the elections. Ease the problems of people, elections will keep coming,” said Modi.
He said the central government has allocated over Rs 20,000 crore for the development of Railways in Odisha in the last four years alone, which is five times more than the allocation by the previous government.
In a month, development projects worth more than Rs 20,000 crore have been either inaugurated or initiated in Odisha, said Modi. (IANS)
