The Shivraj Singh Chouhan led Madhya Pradesh government is planning to register Gurukuls and treat them equivalent to mainstream schools. This was announced by the state’s Chief Minister on Saturday while inaugurating the three day International Virat Gurukul Sammelan in Ujjain, as reported by ANI.

Gurukuls are an ancient Indic way of learning, where students used to go to residential schools, where they are imparted education by a guru.

As per Chouhan, the state government would register Gurukuls, and every district would promote the Gurukul system of learning. He also claimed that the government would be helping trusts set up such educational institutions, which would then be held equal to the modern education system.

Even Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar at the conference stated that the government was planning on reviving the ancient Vedic system of education. To facilitate the same, he indicated the formation of a new education policy, whose draft would be ready in three months.

This three day International Virat Gurukul Sammelan is being held at the Maharishi Sandipani Rashtriya Vedvidhya Pratishthan in Ujjain. Javadekar was the Chief Guest of the program, which was being presided over by CM Chouhan. RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat was to be the keynote speaker at the occasion.

In all this program was to be attended by Vice-Chancellors from about 70 universities, besides research scholars and social activists too marking their presence.

Besides brainstorming over ways to incorporate the Gurukul system into the modern education system, the meet featured a cultural program by various Gurukuls whose students narrated various Vedic and Sanskrit verses.

This announcement by the Shivraj Chouhan government comes about two weeks after it was reported that it was planning on creating a relevant framework on promoting the Gurukul system.
