‘Ramcharit Manas’ added as OptionalSubject in MP Colleges
First-year students of graduation courses in Madhya Pradesh colleges and universities will be offered epic ‘Ramcharitmanas’ as an elective subject under philosophy discipline in art stream, Higher Education Minister Mohan Yadav said on Monday.
On recommendation of the syllabus committee, the “applied philosophy of Shri Ramcharitmanas” has been introduced as an elective (optional) course under the philosophy subject for first-year students of graduation (BA) from the academic session of 2021-22, he said.
“The Ramcharitmanas has science, culture, literature and ‘shringar’ (concept of love and beauty in Indian classical art form). This is not about a particular religion. We have also introduced Urdu Gazal as a subject,” Yadav said.
