Hon’ble Shri Ram Bilas Sharma, Education Minister, Haryana, mesmerizes with his philosophy on education in the regeneration of new India at the MRIU National Conference!
With Faculty of Management Studies, Manav Rachna International University hosting the National Conference on ‘Autonomy of Education’ in association with Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas on April 1-2, 2017 at the Manav Rachna Campus, there was a rare convergence of some of the greatest minds from the world of academia and public life.
Gracing the premier event, Hon’ble Shri Ram Bilas Sharma, Education Minister, Haryana, said, “Founder Visionary Dr O.P. Bhalla was far ahead of his times in his ideals and missionary zeal, planting the tree of education in Haryana. It was he who initiated ‘manav ki rachna’ and transformed the very educational landscape in Faridabad.” While emphasizing on the quality of education in the country, Hon’ble Minister Shri Ram Bilas Sharma, said, “Teaching has never been a profession in India but a dedication and a way of life. While the 19th century belonged to Europe and the 20th century belonged to America, the 21st century belongs to India which is definitely on the path of greatness.” He also spoke at length about all-time greats and luminaries such as Former President of India Shri A.P.J. Kalam who he felt remained a professor all his life more than a President and breathed his last among a gathering of students; Swami Vivekananda and Eklavya as the path finders and inspirational gurus of the nation. Hon’ble Minister left a deep impact among the audience when he said, “Only a father and teacher wants their progeny or pupil (as the case maybe) to be greater than themselves,” summing up in essence his take on education and what it can do to transform students’ lives.
Hon’ble Minister was addressing the gathering in which Senior Dignitaries such as Dr Prashant Bhalla,President, MREI; Dr Sanjay Srivastava, MD, MREI and VC, MRU; Dr N.C. Wadhwa, VC, MRIU; Shri. Atul Kothari, Secretary, Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas; and Dr Aloke Deep, Secretary, Secretary, Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas were present to delve into various aspects on the issue of ‘Autonomy of Education’. All the dignitaries at the Conference were unanimous in the thought that positive changes in the education system requires a collective effort and has to happen right from the level of the grassroots. It cannot happen only with Government intervention.
