Education Ministry sets 100 crore to introduce Vedas and Indian languages in curriculum

Dharmendra Pradhan

Union Pradhan Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has announced that the Centre has set Rs 100 crore for the projects aimed at launching Vedas and Indian languages in the curriculum.

Students who qualifies for Class X (Veda Bhushan) and Class XII (Veda Vibhushan) examinations offered by Vedic Boards will now be eligible to join any higher education institution including medicine and engineering colleges.

This choice was made in response to the Association of Indian Universities (AIU), a government-designated organization, recently deciding to acknowledge Vedic education.

Students from Bharatiya Siksha Board (BSB), Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Veda Sanskrit Shiksha Board (MSRVSSB), and Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Ved Vidya Pratisthan (MSRVVP), which are Vedic boards, will gain from the decision as they won’t have to take an additional National Open Schooling Examination exam.

Pradhan emphasized how we may advance social justice, women’s empowerment, and women-led development by absorbing the knowledge, values, and message of the Vedas during the Saturday Sanskrit translation of Laxmi Puran’s release at Central Sanskrit University.

He hoped that the University will make an effort to introduce Sanskrit and other Indian languages, literature, and traditions to younger generations.

The famous saint poet Balaram Das wrote the devotional lyrical poetry Laxmi Puran at Puri, Odisha, in the fifteenth century. Because of his “magnum opus,” or “Ramayan” in Odiya, Balaram Das is referred to as the “Balmiki” of Odisha. He is a writer of Odiya literature from the ‘Panchasakha’ period, which is renowned for encouraging devotion and Brahma Jnana.
