The Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal wants to bring together gurukuls from different countries and practices, and develop a modern gurukul system for implementation.
New Delhi: One of the main aims of the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is to spread Bharatiya sanskriti – Indian culture – across the world. To achieve this, partially, the RSS, through its affiliate Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal (BSM), is all set to host an international event from April 28-30 at Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh.
Aimed at popularising the gurukul system of education that existed in ancient India, the mega event will see participation from gurukuls from Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Mauritius, Trinidad & Tobago, Indonesia, Canada, Norway, and the Netherlands.
MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan is the official host, while union human resource development minister Prakash Javadekar is also associated with the event.
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and sarkaryawaha (general secretary) Suresh ‘Bhaiyyaji’ Joshi, along with several other leading lights of the RSS and the BJP, will be present. [ . . . ]
