“There should be an autonomous education policy and an Indian Education Services should be established along the lines of Indian Administrative Service. Nowadays, the subjects are taught in isolation. Teaching a subject should be seen as a contribution to the society and taught in a wholesome manner,” Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue and activist Dinanath Batra recently said.
Speaking at a commemorative programme to mark RSS founder Keshav Baliram Hedgewar’s 125th birthday, Batra said that the Indian education system should be in the hands of technocrats instead of autocrats. Stressing that Sanskrit is not a dead language, he added that the language had “opened the flood gates of ancient Hindu knowledge.”
