India was Guru and we need to make it the Vishwa-guru

Chandigarh, October 13, 2020: University Institute of Applied Management Sciences, Panjab University Chandigarh organised a webinar in which Prof. Mohan Lal Chhipa, Ex-Vice-Chancellor, Atal Bihari Vajpayee Hindi University, Bhopa was the main speaker.
Indian perspective of education is to make an integral individual as opposite to the individualist perspective of the West, said Prof. Mohan LalChhipa.
He said it is important to see how the education system is contributing to the making of humanity.
NEP 2020 is going to foster and develop the sense of entrepreneurship and the Youth will become job providers rather than job seekers.
We are ignorant of the fact that all major concepts emerged from our own Indian literature including Vedas, Shashtras etc.
We as teachers and students can recall the “father of concepts of our respective subjects” from the west but we cannot recall which Indian initiated that particular concept.
He advised teachers and students to see the contribution of Indians in the field of engineering, medical education, commerce, management, art and other domains.
He suggested that like many NGOs that are working in the domain of Indian education, our universities should also establish Indian Education Research Cell/ Institution in order to promote research in Indian literature.
Every university and department should prepare a note/paper on contribution of Indians in their respective domains and determine who all Indians are initiators of the concepts that we have today.
