Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Indian education must be rooted in the developing soul of India, to her future need, to the greatness of her coming self-creation, to her eternal spirit. A truly nationalist education and curriculum are always inclusive in nature, and mindful of the great diversity that makes One India. Our Education must help children and educators develop love for their nation and a wide, universal appreciation of the diversity in the nation and the world.

This book is meant for general audiences and is written in a reader-friendly voice. Much of the inspiration and deeper thought guiding this work comes from the thought and works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.

This book introduces 26 themes - each for a letter of the English alphabet - that according to the author should guide, shape or be a part of an Indian National Education. These themes speak of some selected aspects of the essential Indian spirit and may also shed some light on the forms through which this spirit could express itself in educational practice. Some of these could be of greater interest to educators and parents, while others may give educational thinkers some food for thought.

In a larger sense this book speaks of the need for rethinking some of the fundamentals and philosophical foundations of an Indian National Education. At the same time readers may also be able to find some hints on curriculum restructuring, pedagogical innovations and administrative reform.
