- #576843I see this a good gesture from the part of schools. Religion should not affect the working of schools which are meant to impart scientific knowledge. Religion belongs to the confines of one's homes and not something which should be imparted as education or adopted as truth.
- #576847India is a secular country. There are many educational minority institutions also. In my opinion, the schools should be free of any kind of religious activity. Cultural activities are different. As far as the celebration of festivals is concerned, the same should be restricted to the national festivals , teachers day, children's day etc. only. Religious activities narrow the outlook of the children who are said to be future of any nation.
Nowadays, we sometimes hear about saffronisation of education etc. or making the chanting of 'Om' mantra etc. compulsory which should be discouraged. Therefore should be minimum interference of politicians and religious personalities in the educational institutions.
There are certain minority institutions who preach and practice religion also. As a matter of fact, the education itself is a religion.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
- #576863In the garb of modern education of International standards the private schools are slowly discouraging celebrating the Indian festivals and our children are being denied about the past glory of India as regards to our customs and Tradition. One of my relative child is studying in International schools and recently they conducted the fancy dress competition but asked the children to wear western outfit like Cinderella and other characters. I doubt our mothers are habituated to Indian culture and traditions dresses and we cannot even think of those high profile dressing sense. Moreover who is having such kind of dress supplies. Here what I mean to say that during other Hindu festivals they simply declared holiday and no activities held. If this continues slowly our children would ask what is Deepavali and why should we celebrate Sankranthi festival. The government must interfere right now.,
I consider myself as the learner everyday
