Kasaragod: Ethics is the very basis of the Indian Knowledge System, and it emphasises exploration, not belief, said Mukul Kanitkar, Trustee of Research For Resurgence Foundation (RFRF) and All India Organising Secretary of Bharatiya Shikshan Mandal (BSM). He was delivering the keynote address at a workshop organised on the theme of the Indian Knowledge System at the Central University of Kerala.
“It is essential not only to take pride in the glories of the past but also in how our Knowledge System addresses the needs of the present. Our Knowledge System is ancient as well as eternal,” Mukul Kanitkar said. He also pointed out that education has no boundaries of religion, politics, or region.
The programme was organised as part of the event in which the Central University of Kerala signed an MoU with the Research For Resurgence Foundation to collaborate in the field of research. Registrar Dr. M. Muralidharan Nambiar signed the MoU on behalf of the University and Trustee Mukul Kanitkar on behalf of RFRF.
Inaugurating the event, Prof. H. Venkateshwarlu, Vice Chancellor, said that it is necessary to acquire knowledge about the country’s traditions, including education. Dean Academic Amruth G Kumar, Nodal Officer Prof. A.K. Mohan, Programme Convener Prof. V.P. Joshith, and BSM State President Dr Unnikrishnan addressed the event.
