Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal, the affiliate body of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), has devised a plan of promoting better quality of research work by selecting some young minds that have a knack for research. These selected students will be placed under the guidance of experts training them from the young age.
Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal joint general secretary Mukul Kanitkar said that these students would be doing research in the field of pure science, social science, philosophy, ancient science and other Indian expertise. This matter has also been discussed with Union Human Resource Development minister. Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal is also planning to organize a two-day seminar in Nagpur between September 11 and September 12 in which a large number of vice chancellors from across the country will participate. They will suggest how to go about this project which will help promoting research. Moreover, industry and several industrial houses are also expected to cooperate in this regard.
Sources informed that the research would be done on the specialty of India to highlight our suppressed glory by the left historians especially in the field of social sciences. Most of the students selected for this project are in the ninth standard because Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal believes that this is the right age when students could start doing research but they should be interested in it. This is to be done by the student voluntarily and they can also continue with their regular studies.
Sources in the RSS said that the scheme known as “˜mentorship scheme”™ is being done under “˜Research and Resurgence”™ programme of the RSS. And under the scheme twenty renowned scholars of their respective fields would guide students for which 38 students and 20 teachers have already been selected.Â The scheme will be run as per Guru Sishya tradition of the country.
As per the sources from the RSS, scholars from Jawaharlal Nehru University Prof Ashwini Mohapatra, former vice chancellor of Shivaji University, Kolhapur D N Dhanagre and expert in the field of Information Technology Dr Vijay P Bhatkar has already given their consent for the purpose.
One of the scholars associated with this project said that basically this was an attempt to correct history, social science; political thoughts and attempt of connect modern science with the ancient science. The problem in India is that most of the research is done by the left ideology so the purpose of the project is to come out with credible research to counter them. It is a very big project that would require long time.
Total 38 students that have been selected for this project are mostly from Maharashtra but talents from other states will gradually emerge for this research project.
