PM Modi’s ‘Mann ki Baat’ completes 100 episodes; achieves enormous goals of transforming education

PM Modi’s ‘Mann ki Baat’

According to an official statement, the 100th episode of the monthly radio show “Mann Ki Baat” featuring ideas from Prime Minister Narendra Modi has helped to achieve the enormous goals he has set before the country to improve education.

The 100th episode of Mann ki Baat aired on Sunday, and at this point, the program’s influence on the Indian educational system is highlighted by glimpses of the many initiatives of the Ministry of Education (MoE), the Government of India, and its several autonomous institutions.

The Ministry of Education launched a number of initiatives, including Kala Utsav to find young artists, Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat programmes, the National Yoga Olympiad, Pariksha pe Charcha, NIPUN Bharat for early literacy and numeracy, the National Digital Library for Schools, NDEAR for digital education, Manodarpan and Sahyog, PM e-Vidya, SWAYAMPRABHA channels, and many more. Many of the concepts that the Prime Minister raised with academics and professors at the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) also inspired them. To give them a tangible form, different initiatives were necessary.

In the previous episodes of June and July 2020, he had already talked about being Vocal for Local and discovering ways to be engaged at home during the national lockdown through traditional games.

“National Education Policy 2020 too emphasised joyful learning. These were taken very seriously by the Ministry of Education and within two years, through toy-based pedagogy the message to promote Indian toys has reached every household,”, according to an official statement.

The National Curriculum Framework for Foundational stage and the Draft National Curriculum Framework for School Education, the learning-teaching materials for Foundational stage, the Handbook of Toy-based Pedagogy for all stages and subjects of school education, the organisation of international webinars, national and regional seminars and webinars, toy hackathons, national toy fairs for school education, and including a separate section on the National Curriculum Framework for School Education are all examples of things that are being done. As a result of his vision for incorporating traditional Indian games and toys into the classroom for school activities the idea has penetrated into the system.

The nationwide Yoga Olympiad was proposed by the Ministry of Education for schools in all age groups, and the NCERT has been running this three-day nationwide event since 2016. Hundreds of kids compete at the national level beginning with competitions at the school, district, and state levels while they are between the ages of 10 and 18 (Class VI-XII).
