Haryana Govt to include Bhagwad Gita in School Curriculum

Surajkund, Jan 03: The Haryana Government has decided to include the holy "Bhagwad Gita" in the school curriculum from the next academic session for students from class five to 12th.

"We have decided to include Bhagwad Gita in the school curriculum. Gita is knowledge, Gita is our way of life Gita is science and Gita is solution," Haryana Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma told ANI.

Earlier in December last year, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had called for declaring Bhagwad Gita as "National Scripture".

"The Bhagavad Gita teaches us the way to lead life in a happy and stress free manner. It should not be left for old age; it is something that one should read for guidance throughout your life," she had said while addressing the Gita Prerna Utsav that was held in the national capital.
