Venkaiah Naidu pitches for Indianisation of education; Denounces Macaulay system

Vice President Venkaiah Naidu has called for Indianising the education system. Speaking after inaugurating the South Asian Institute of Peace and Reconciliation at the Dev Sanskriti Vishwa Vidyalaya in Haridwar, Naidu said that we are accused of saffronising education, but then what is wrong with saffron? "Centuries of colonial rule taught us to look upon ourselves as an inferior race. We were taught to despise our own culture, traditional wisdom. This slowed our growth as a nation. The imposition of a foreign language as our medium of education confined education to a small section of the society, depriving a vast population of the right to education," he said.
