SAMBA, SEPTEMBER 25: In continuation to the series of activities under India’s Presidency in G20 and Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, Government Degree College Ramgarh on Monday organized a Group Discussion on ‘Gandhi ji’s Contribution to Indian Education’ to commemorate Gandhi Jayanti.
The event was organized under the guidance and coordination of Prof. (Dr.) Geetanjali Andotra, Principal of the College.
A total of 20 students actively participated in the discussion and put forth their thoughts.
Prof. (Dr.) Geetanjali Andotra said that Gandhi Ji advocated imparting education in mother tongue and asked for activity centered education to make the children skilled and independent. She further added that Gandhi ji wanted to construct small, self-reliant communities with its ideal citizens being all industrious, self-respecting and generous individuals. In Gandhiji’s educational thoughts the development of the personality of a child is more important than mere literacy or knowledge of different subjects.
