Does success in examinations with high marks guarantee an equally active role in the society?
A prominent educator who refused to stand and accept doctrines, Mr Thakur views the whole world as a village when envisioning his idea of society. He points out that universalism is only possible when everyone is living relative to each other.
The problem with modern education lies in its ethos that tries to find value in mastery of a skill rather that the enablement of the individual. In the temples of learning in ancient India, skill was the vehicle on the road to self-realization and not the destination itself. Educator Ashok Thakur views the philosophy as even more relevant today. His Muni International Schools enable children on a path of understanding the self with the help of ancient Gurukul techniques.
