Mangaluru: Swami Vivekananda's idea of ââeducation is embodied in the National Education Policy to be implemented by the central government. It is a matter of pride for us, said Mangalore University Syndicate Member Ravichandra PM.
He spoke during the National Youth Day organised by the Indian Red Cross, Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Kodagu District chapters and the Youth Red Cross of Mangalore University at Ravindra Kalabhavana of University College Mangaluru on Tuesday. The event was organised on the occasion of Swami Vivekananda's 159th birth anniversary celebrations and 100 years of existence of the Red Cross.
The overall development of the country is possible only through the education system. It should evoke harmony and humane values ââin society. The thoughts of Swami Vivekananda, Dr B R Ambedkar and Mahatma Gandhi are enough to make India a world leader.
