NCERT Integrates National War Memorial Chapter for Class VII Students
Educational News: In a recent announcement, the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has decided to integrate a chapter titled ‘A Homage to our Brave Soldiers’ on the National War Memorial into the Class VII curriculum.
A Step Towards Instilling Patriotism
Jointly overseen by the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Education, this initiative strives to kindle sentiments of patriotism, devotion to duty, and the values of courage and sacrifice within young minds. The prime objective behind this move is to boost the youth’s involvement in the process of nation-building.
Delving Deep into the Essence of the Memorial
The newly added chapter not only provides insights into the history and importance of the National War Memorial but also underscores the immeasurable sacrifices made by the nation’s armed forces since India gained its independence.
The content is crafted in an engaging manner, where two friends communicate through letters, expressing their deep-seated gratitude for the freedom they cherish – a direct result of the valiant efforts of the armed forces.
Through the narrative, the authors from NCERT have expertly captured the profound emotional resonance that the iconic monument evokes among the visitors, especially the younger generation.
Recollection of the Memorial’s Inception
It’s imperative to note that the National War Memorial, located in New Delhi, was dedicated to the Indian citizens by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on February 25, 2019.
The establishment of this memorial was envisioned to foster a spirit of sacrifice and national pride among the populace, serving as a fitting tribute to those gallant soldiers who, without hesitation, sacrificed their lives in defense of the nation.
This inclusion in the NCERT curriculum stands as a testament to the nation’s unwavering respect for its heroes and aims at ensuring that the upcoming generations recognize and value the sacrifices made for their freedom.
