De-colonise history and media education – J. Nanda Kumar Ji

Hyderabad (VSK). There is a need to de-colonise the entire education system, including the history and Media education. If Narad Sutras are included in media courses, the journalist fraternity and thereby the nation as a whole, will stand enlightened, said Sri Nanda Kumar Ji, Akhil Bharatiya Sanyojak of Pragna Pravaah during the Narad Jayanti celebrations in Bhagyanagar (Hyderabad) on  May 14, 2017. Sri Nanda Kumar  Ji was the chief speaker at the  Narad Jayanti 2017 at Potti Sriramulu University auditorium, organised by Samachar Bharati’s Vishwa Samvad Kendra, Telangana.

He said there is a difference between having a successful life and having a meaningful life. People have begun to compare success with how high on the ladder one has climbed, whereas a meaningful life is built on values. The current falling standards in journalism is a matter of concern as some media managements have converted the ‘news’ into a ‘trade commodity’. In order to overcome this crisis, the journalists themselves need to stand for truth and restore the dignity of this sector that thrives for the well – being of humanity, he added.

Vijay Babu, State Information Commissioner, speaking as a chief guest recollected the special association he had with all the four senior journalists who were felicitated. He said that these four have stood against a lot of pressure to present truth. He regretted Narad had been ridiculed by film-makers as a comedian and therefore the nation does not know about the great knowledge he had as a mass communicator.

Ever since the Narad Jayanti celebrations started, this program has caught up in other parts of the country and is being celebrated with lots of enthusiasm. Each year Samachar Bharati felicitate some senior journalists too.

As part of Narad Jayanti celebrations, 4 senior journalists Sankara Narayana of Eenadu, Aruna Ravi Kumar of Gemini TV were felicitated with Vadlamudi Ram Mohan Rao Smaarak Puraskar. Shiv Kumar (formerly with The Hindu) and Vidyaranya of Hindi Milap were felicitated with Bhandaru Sadasiva Rao Smaaraka Puraskar. All of them shared their insights on this occasion.

The program was attended  by over 200 journalists and friends from the mass communication fraternity. For the last 10 years, Vishwa Samvad Kendra and  Samachar Bharati Cultural Association have been conducting Narad Jayanti as the World Journalists’ Day.

    We have a history today of how Afghans, Moguls, British, French, Portuguese and dutch exploited our mother land and people. How they plundered my wealth and how they forced their faith on my people. Bharth did not exist before this dark period? For a meaningful life we need to have meaning full education with moral values & nationalism.I endorse the views of Nadakumarji and it is time government start the change.

    Time to bring back our Hindu culture and education in Bharat.We had enough of Manipulation and influence of western and world is now in danger and looking for solutions. Bharat has history of more than 5000 years and it is source of knowledge and all other regions are born from Hindu culture and it is source for all.

    Bharat only save human race on the earth. All others will fight each other and vanish from the earth.

    Bharat Matha ki Jai .

    I think RSS should jointly work with Shri Rajiv Malhotra. Being lived in US for more than 40 years he knows the western tactics to destroy India.

    आदरणीय महोदय , हिंदुस्तान में सनातन शिक्षा को पुनर्स्थापित करने, सनातन व्यवस्था को पुनर्स्थापित करने में संघ, निरंतर प्रयासरत है, इसे देख कर पढ़ कर विश्वास हो गया है, हिंदुस्तान विश्वगुरु के पद को प्राप्त करने की राह पर संघ के नेतृत्व में आगे बढ़ रहा है। मलेच्छों, यवनों अंग्रेजों की बनायीं दासता युग की वर्तमान सम्पूर्ण व्यवस्था को नष्ट होना है, तभी बृहत हिंदुस्तान का जन्म होगा।

    There is no better time to present the correct and real history of Bharat. The land with the fundamental wisdom of everything that this holy earth and its inhabitants required then and now. History of Bharat dates back many millennia which was unfortunately skewed strategically by the British and the Psuedo Secular Native Historians, to please their kings and political ends.

    It is unfortunate but true. Most of today’s professionals have read wrong history & wrong traditions. We have to put efforts to unlearn them.

    Unlearn is like learning and we have to do chapter wise, subject wise and topic wise. We have to unlearn wrong things one by one. But unlearning is difficult because we don’t know what to unlearn and how much to unlearn.

    I sincerely feel that unlearning is a huge topic and if we are able to do a bit, we shall become individual who can lead life of purpose. We will not only have successful life but a meaningful life.
