Gujarat Chief Minister today asked academics and educationists to place the pearls of wisdom in Indian philosophy before the world.

He said that the Indian culture has faced many challenges and tribulations for several millenniums. It is time we overhaul our education system and syllabus befitting the changing times. It is time we hoist our vast knowledge and wisdom in the Vedas and Upanishads to the world, onto the web through the satellites to the quest for knowledge. He wondered as to why India's strength as a 'Sanatan' dharma could not provide answers to many problems of the world like global warming and show the right path to the people.

Mr. Modi said that only India could show the righteous way to live life 'Ten Tyakten Bhunjithah'as enshrined in our scriptures, and shun the western materialistic concept of 'Eat, Drink and Be Merry'. There is also a need to nurture Sanskrit language, neglected for long. At the same time, he said, India should adapt the best that is in other countries and cultures, particularly modern sciences and technologies, irrespective of whether they come from the past or future, East or West.

Mr. Modi was speaking at an international conference on 'Themes of Higher Education: Prospects of Gujarat', organized by Gujarat Government's Education Department and Knowledge Consortium of Gujarat at the Pandit Deendayal University campus here. The two-day conference is being attended by nearly 700 educationists and experts from different countries, vice-chancellors, senate members, principals and teachers.

With the help of Think Tanks, he said, Gujarat Government is changing its rules and policies, in a bid to discover the best that is in the educational world. The present-day education is more qualification-oriented than solving problems.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Vivian Baumfield presided Gujarat's efforts in the field of education.

PM lauds role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has saluted each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive on completion of 1 year of vaccine drive. The Prime Minister has lauded the role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive. He also said that India's vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19.

In response to a tweet by MyGovIndia, the Prime Minister, in a series of tweets said;

"Today we mark #1YearOfVaccineDrive.

I salute each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive.

Our vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19. It has led to saving lives and thus protecting livelihoods.

At the same time, the role of our doctors, nurses and healthcare workers is exceptional. When we see glimpses of people being vaccinated in remote areas, or our healthcare workers taking the vaccines there, our hearts and minds are filled with pride.

India’s approach to fighting the pandemic will always remain science based. We are also augmenting health infrastructure to ensure our fellow citizens get proper care.

Let us keep following all COVID-19 related protocols and overcome the pandemic."
