Bengaluru. 16.9.2022. Hon’ble Governor, Sri. Thavar Chand Gehlot Ji released ‘Katha Loka’- a Kannada book on value education for school students in Karnataka brought out jointly by the Department of School Education and Literacy, GoK, and the PES University, Bengaluru, in Raj Bhavan.
Speaking after the dedication, he said that ‘we take so much care in choosing the right materials for the foundation of our house to ensure long safety and durability of the structure. Similar care should be taken in the education of our children”. Early child care and education play an important role in the future life of children. To ensure a good foundational education for children is our responsibility because this strong foundation depends on the life of children, he said.
Moral stories have a profound influence on children. Value education through moral stories is necessary to ingrain the cultural and emotional development of children. Moral stories are a medium of inculcating values in children. Such children would be an asset of future society, he said.
The Hon'ble Governor said that there is an urgent need for strengthening the moral fabric of the society and the nation through such moral stories and value education. Modern knowledge activities should be integrated with indie’s cherished values; their fusion with culture and dharma-samskruthi would establish a society and nation which ensures equality among the citizens and their emotional integration. The new National Education Policy (2020) would ensure a bright future of present and future generations to come. These essential verticals play a critical role in building New India. It is our sacred responsibility to ensure the success of NEP (2020).
Katha Loka brought out by Prof. Doreswamy, Adviser, Education Reforms, GoK is aligned to NEP (2020) and therefore I am sure that it would succeed in inculcating the required values in school children.
Chief Guest, Sri B.S. Yediyurappa, hon’ble former chief minister of Karnataka said that Prof. Doreswamy’s experience and experience of 5 decades have brought fame to the government of Karnataka. His innovative idea of involving elected representatives (MLAs/MLC, MPs) and universities in the adoption of government schools is a great contribution to leverage school education services in Karnataka. His dedication to public good is worthy of emulation by all. Viewed in this perspective, KATHA LOKA symbolizes the public concern of PES University under the eminent leadership of Prof. Doreswamy, he said.
Dr. Chandrashekara Kambara, President, of Sahitya Academy pointed out that folklore and stories have made immense contributions to the cultural legacy of India. In the present technologically dominant society, storytelling is a threatened art, but books like Katha Loka are a silver lining, giving hope of a great revival of the yeastier years, he said. The Education sector should get maximum benefit from such books, he opined.
Prof. MR Doreswamy thanked Sri B.S. Yediyurappa for making his dream of leveraging school education services in the state, come true. He also thanked the Hon'ble Governor and the Government of Karnataka for helping PES University to organize such a unique function.
