News agency IANS claims that the process of establishing a dedicated education board has already started. In order to make the Vedas a subject of public practice with scholarship, the government has decided to establish five Veda Vidyapeeths led by Maharishi Sandipani Pratishthan at the ‘Char Dhams’ and Kamakhya Devi’s place, it claims.

This is as per the new National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 which asks educational institutes to hit a sweet spot between culture and modernism. It also asks educationalists to give due importance to Indian knowledge system. After the NEP, many schools and colleges have started to adopt scriptures related to Hinduism including Geeta,  Upnishads etc as part of curriculum. Many have also changed history books to highlight glories of India’s past.

Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his weekly radio programme, ‘Mann ki Baat’ said, “For the people of India, who made the world aware of the most important laws of mathematics, mathematics should not be a problem but an easy subject. If we teach Vedic maths to our children, then their fear about maths will also end.”

He also added, “With Vedic Maths, you can even solve big scientific problems. I would like all parents to teach Vedic Maths to their children.”

Meanwhile, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan will be launching a book on ‘Indian Knowledge System’ today.
