Chairman - Dr. D. C. Thapliyal

Our nation has witnessed many systems of education during the past centuries. In ancient times, education hubs were mainly administered by independent scholars though funded by their kingdom. Takshashila, Nalanda, Vikramshila, etc. are a few examples of the world-famous institutions of ancient India. Due to the autonomous nature of educational institutions at that time, six schools of philosophy (Shad Darshan), quite different from each other, developed in the Indian subcontinent.

Before independence, the need for education was just to fulfill the operational and administrative requirements of the foreign rulers.

They were hardly interested to develop technical, scientific, economic or political awareness through education, which could suit the geographical, environmental, social and cultural traditions of this ancient and glorious civilization. Now even after independence, what is the condition of our basic education system? Does education imply clearing competitive exams such as JEE, CAT and NEET and ultimately getting heavy salaried jobs? Should the aim of education only be financial stability?

The practical aspect of education should not be only ‘job-seeking’. Education should also mean to create opportunities for others, to gift something useful to society, something new to mankind.

What about morals? Where are the attempts to prepare students to meet the future challenges, indigenous technology, creativity, social engineering, crisis management, systematic exploitation of natural resources and humanitarian view in management, scientific approach towards religious and cultural aspects? How to be a good human being, what should be our role as a citizen of this country? To what extent should we pursue money? Why should we wish to acquire all the wealth of society though we know that each one of us needs it? Have we produced any Nobel Laureates in Science after Sir C. V. Raman in India? The answer is a big NO. One of the reasons to this is that our educational priorities have changed. Education has become a job oriented once again. It has lost the capability of developing a thought process within the student. This is one of the major reasons we don’t find sufficient entrepreneurs for “Start-Up India”.

Doon Laurels Academy- a tiny attempt in this direction, aims to provide such a holistic system of education, that students develop as a complete, holistic personality. They should be more fruitful to their family, society, and nation. We are aware of our role in society and therefore we are committed to providing multi-dimensional and a practical education system to our students without harming their self-esteem, without schooling any specific thought in to their subconscious, and at last nurturing them as an independent entity rather than cast them as clones or program them as robots. We need more humans today in society to keep it strong and kind.
