Kerala, India, March 24, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- Traditional Indian System of Gurukulam Education is undergoing a revamp for comeback in the 21st century to spread the light of knowledge to the world. This 3000 year old education system is being blended with Modern Educational Practices and put to test in an International School in the Southern state of Kerala. The research is being headed by Eminent Researchers from Labour India Education Research & Training Centre, which has decades of experience in modernizing education in the state through innovative research & practices, publications, products and services.
Gurukulam is a place where the disciples stay with Guru and learns everything comes out of Guru mukha. Here in Labour India Gurukulam it is being followed with certain differences: This Modern Gurukulam is constructed at a small distance from the International school, neither too far, nor too close with cottages having all the facilities as residences. Environment is similar to an ‘Ashrama’ but facilities are there to satisfy each and every need of the student. Modern technologies such as website administration, e-commerce, strategic marketing, bio-technology, multimedia tools development etc along with traditional jobs such as diary farm, goats rearing, organic farming etc are trained here. Special emphasis is given on Economics, Politics, Sociology, Anthropology and Philosophy. Community living through learning and sharing is the core essence of the whole system.
It is a community in itself, in a full and real sense with a corporate spirit, corporate activities, a corporate pride and a common will. Another boon of this life is that Gurukulam contains a variety of students of different ages, who come from different countries, activities and backgrounds, which is not found in a family. This gives them a global exposure and experience to be worthy citizens of tomorrow.
The vision behind the new concept is simple: Education is the birthright of every child. A child is born with immense potentialities. There should be the Gurukulam System of Education where no child is ever rejected, where the child is the center of every learning activity, where personal attention is given to every child focusing on physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual strengths which are the four pillars of education.
Labour India respects the ancient Indian culture and build up overall development of a child through traditional Gurukulam system of education. Here the difference is that ‘shishyas’ always question ‘Gurus’ and never accept anything without sufficient reason. Labour India do not teach but train students for Life-long Learning.
The Labour India International Gurukulam School & Junior College is a dream come true, in fullfilling the aspirations of parents earning for better educational opportunities for their wards. It marks the emergence of a new dawn in learning.
The school is owned by the Labour India Educational Society, which is a registered Trust and has opened a similar Gurukulam International School in USA.
