While the education standards in India are going from bad to worse under his ministry, the naive education minister Prakash Javadekar is wasting his time everyday in useless antics.
Instead of implementing a comprehensive education policy, he is mostly seen in colorful inauguration extravaganzas which have no meaning at all. Sad but true. ~ Rakesh Raman
An Indian Minister of Education / Human Resource Development, Prakash Javadekar, launched Tuesday the Vidya Veerta Abhiyan in New Delhi. A collage of photo portraits and book on Paramveer Chakra recipients was also released and presented to Vice-Chancellors of universities.
Highlighting the importance of the occasion, Javadekar expressed his gratitude towards the most difficult service rendered by Indian armed forces.
The event was attended by several vice-chancellor of universities, scholars, ex-servicemen and school children.
Javadekar said we feel secure just because of the continuous vigil and alertness of our forces busy in securing our borders. The Minister said these are our real post-independence heroes while the freedom fighters who laid their lives and faced atrocities for the cause of freedom are the natural heroes.
Javadekar said through this campaign, a wall of valour will be built in colleges and universities across the country and this will be built on contributory funding by students and teachers on voluntary basis.
He said this wall will be 15 x 20 feet in size and will exhibit the portraits of all the 21 Paramveer Chakra recipients. The Minister expressed the hope that this will help revive and re-energize the patriotic fervour in our young minds.
The Minister said organising of such events help in changing atmosphere in our colleges and universities. It is just to revive the patriotic feeling in our youth.
He said we are not interested to teach lessons of patriotism to anyone as it is innate in every individual. But its continuous revival is a dire need. Javadekar said we do not want to force it.
