Country deviated from its ethos and values after independence: BHU V-C

12 Jul 2017

Banaras Hindu University (BHU) Vice-Chancellor Girish Chandra Tripathi today said that after independence the country deviated from its ethos and values to some extent, which put a spoke in its proper progress.
Speaking as the chief guest on the occasion of 57th foundation day of the Ranchi University here, Tripathi said that while Indian culture focused on "nation first", after independence most of the people started giving preference to "themselves first". Whereas the Indian philosophy talked about the philosophy of 'vasudhaiva kutumbakam' and 'sarve bhavantu sukhinah', the modern society became self-centred, putting a spoke in the holistic development of the society. He said that in the ancient times and even before the medieval age India was full of resources and capabilities.
It is not only mentioned in the history but it can also be made out from the fact that the foreign powers attacked India time and again, nothing but for its resources. He said the foreign aggressors knew it very well that to weaken a country it was necessary to destroy its education system. "And that is why as a conspiracy they first of all destroyed the Indian education system, which resulted in to the loss of everything in the country," he said.
