National Desk: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched the ‘Desh Ke Mentor’ program for children studying in Delhi government schools during a program organized at Thyagaraj Stadium on Monday, through which the children of 9th to 12th standard will be helped by mentors in shaping their careers. . The Chief Minister said that we want that after 9th the child should get such an elder brother, friend or sister with whom he can share everything. Not only the people of Delhi will become mentors of the children of Delhi, but people from all over the country will become mentors. A person living in any part of the country can become a mentor by registering on the Delhi government app. He said that if a child fulfills his dreams by your hard work, then you are doing the biggest work of nation building.
When people from all over the country will come and mentor the children, then our whole country will become one family and all the walls of religion and caste will be broken. An Indian will connect with another Indian and we will all take India forward as a family and a team. He said that something amazing is happening in the field of education in Delhi. A total of 16 lakh children used to study in our Delhi government schools. For many years this figure remained almost the same. Every year some children used to come and some children would pass out and leave. But this year there have been 18 lakh 70 thousand children in these schools. This year, two lakh 70 thousand children from private schools in Delhi have been admitted to government schools by cutting their names. It is amazing and wonderful.
Till now in the history of independent India, we had heard that so many government schools were closed here, children of so many government schools were reduced in this state, but if two lakh 70 thousand children got their names cut from private schools and came to government schools. So this is unique. For this, I want to congratulate all the teachers, all the children and their parents. Mr Kejriwal said that just a few days back we started the Patriotic course. People from all over the country are asking what is this patriotic curriculum? Can patriotism be taught? The whole country is watching with curiosity.
We started Happiness Curriculum inside government schools of Delhi. So people are asking whether happiness can also be given to children? But when US President Donald Trump came to India, his wife had come to attend our Happiness class in government schools of Delhi government. The smell of the work of our teachers has reached the home of the President of America. Entrepreneurship classes are going on. Children are being taught to be entrepreneurs, to be businessmen. The Chief Minister said that the task of education in our schools is to prepare children for three things. First, after passing out of school or college, he should be ready to feed himself, take care of his household.
Today the biggest problem of our education world is that we keep roaming for jobs with big degrees and do not get jobs. We are preparing our children not to be job seekers, but to be job creators. We will start our business, our business and we will give jobs to the people. In Delhi government schools, this education starts from class IX. Our second aim is that we have to make children good human beings. Meditation is done to the children inside the Happiness class. Good things are said. There are classes of 45 minutes to one hour every day. With the help of Happiness class, children are being taught to be good human beings. The third objective is to make the child a good citizen. Every child who comes out of school should be a good citizen of the country. Patriotic classes will make him a good citizen and make him a staunch patriot.
