New Delhi, Aug 7 The Governing Council of State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) of Delhi has adopted the framework of ‘deshbhakti’ curriculum on Friday.

The curriculum framework which was presented in a meeting chaired by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, is based on the recommendations of the ‘deshbhakti’ curriculum committee formed by Delhi government.

“The committee chaired by Dr. Renu Bhatia, Principal, Sarvodaya Kanya Vidhyalaya Moti Bagh and Sharda Kumari, former Principal, DIET R.K Puram made its recommendations based on wide consultations with students, teachers, parents, educators, civil society organisations and extensive literature review,” the Delhi government said in a statement.

The announcement of ‘deshbhakti’ curriculum was announced during the annual budget session of the Delhi assembly in March this year, aiming to create patriotism and nationhood among the children studying in Delhi government schools.

Talking about the vision of the curriculum, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said: “It is imperative that we bridge the gap between values and actions, and ensure that constitutional ideals of equality, fraternity and justice are practiced by children in their everyday lives.”

The framework states three primary goals that the curriculum will foster among students — love and pride for the nation, awareness of one’s responsibilities and duties, and commitment to make sacrifices for the country.

“The pedagogical discourse of the curriculum has been based on the guiding principles of the national curriculum framework 2005 and follows child-centric and critical pedagogies. It focuses on connecting to children’s lives outside of school instead of being confined to textbooks and conventional assessment,” Sisodia said.

The ‘deshbhakti’ curriculum will be implemented in all Delhi government schools from the current academic session.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
