A virtual school on Bhagwan Ram will soon be a reality. The first of its kind school was conceptualised by a student of the Banaras Hindu University, who said it was the need of the hour to spread the ideals of Shri Ram. The school is free for all.
The school will be integrated with other social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. According to Prince Tiwari, second year BA student, for building an ideal society, Ram’s ideals should be spread. “Through this school, School of Ram, we aim at ‘vyakti nirman’. It is as important as rashtra nirman (nation building).” Probably, this will be the first such virtual school which will take the ideals of Lord Ram and the universal form of the Ramayana and Ram katha through social media to the common people.
According to Prince, disintegration of the family is becoming a common problem. “Many people do not obey their parents, they do not care for them well. Many people ignore the elders. Family values are declining. In the absence of ideals and values in the family, its disintegration begins,” he added.
“The virtual School of Ram will try to stop this disintegration by spreading the ideals and values of Lord Shri Ram among the people, especially the younger generation, which is quite active on social media platforms. We will upload videos, lectures, and stories of Lord Ram on social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and also on WhatsApp so that the young generation may know about ideals and values of Lord Ram and take inspiration,” said Tiwari.
Prof Rajneesh Shukla, vice chancellor of the Mahatma Gandhi International Hindi University in Wardha, will formally inaugurate the School of Ram on March 24. Vidya Bharati national secretary Avanish Bhatnagar will preside over the inaugural ceremony in which several other dignitaries will remain present.
