Veteran actor Shekhar Suman and Smt. Amruta Devendra Fadnavis, wife of Hon’ble Maharashtra Chief Minister, Shri Devendra Fadnavis, today urged the teachers to go beyond the set pattern of the main stream curriculum and nurture the passion and creativity of the students by bringing the soul in education. The two were addressing a Global symposium, ‘Soul in Education’ organized by Parisar Asha, a 35 year old not for profit organization working in the field of education.
Mr. Suman appreciated the efforts of Ms. Aarati Savur, C.E.O of Parisar Asha and said such summits would help the teachers to get new ideas. Mrs Fadnavis also appreciated the efforts of the organisers and said this conference would give a new dimension to the teaching style.
Parisar Asha’s initiative ‘Soul in Education’ was organized for more than 600 educators who are the changemakers in education. This initiative was supported and sponsored by L2O- a New York based digital learning platform. This unique summit culminated with the prize distribution ceremony of the Gloria de Souza Excellence Award- Best Educator, in which all the winners were recognized and awarded by Mrs. Fadnavis for their outstanding contribution in the field of education.
“Education has the power to change the world but it is pertinent to awaken the soul in the education system which was present during the ‘Gurukul’ days and is slowly getting lost under the menace of commercialization and competition. ‘Soul in Education’ is an initiative of Parisar Asha to revive the education system and bring back the joy of learning.”, said Ms. Aarati Savur , C.E.O of Parisar Asha.
