Gandhi Global Village a Model of Basic Education:
To Teach Self Reliance
& Respect for Manual Labour
By Dr. Umakant Chanshetti and Ms. Sangita Shah
In the present scenario of education it is anomaly that education
has not been able to give right direction to our youths and it does not provide
them opportunities for their all round development or make them self reliant.
In our country 80% of population is belongs to agriculture and 10% occupied in
serving the needs of them. Now a days the students may pass and earn degree or
degrees with first or higher division or may acquire the highest degree, but
even though they does not become self reliant and unable to face the
challenges. So to overcome this situation there is need of such education which
was predicted by Mahatma Gandhi viz ‘Basic Education’ or ‘Nai-Talim’. In
Boramani village of Sholapur district “Mahatma Gandhi Global Village” endeavors
to provide education with the views of Mahatma Gandhi, which shows effective
and positive results among the children.
