Dr. Rakesh Kumar Tiwari, workshop Coordinator, introduced the guests with participant and Dr. Divya introduced the context and purpose of the workshop.
Context of the Workshop: In current world scenario entire existence ie. Individual, Family, Society and the Universe including all the creatures, plants and climate is passing through the many adverse changes causing threats on mutual relations and harmony among them. There are problems at the level of good understanding in relations with the unit to the universe. We can observe the disorganized individuals with many pathological symptoms at behavioural level, increasing mistrust, social insecurity and generation gap, dangerous communal rights, state wars, terrorism, racism, regionalism, gender discrimination, caste conflicts, exploitation of nature, human being and animals, intolerable corruption. Finally we can see the unrest at all levels of existence. All these happen only because people don’t have proper understanding of their relations, needs and happiness. The key institutions like family, government and society only focuses on skill development of individual and groups. They don’t care about the precious human values like love, compassion. care, help, trust, respect, justice and patience without which human life, it’s survival with happiness and peace is impossible. So the value education cell of AKTU, Lucknow emphasizes on value education with skill development. We can understand the concern of the University as it has opened proper cell and developed techniques to educate the faculty members and transmit this education to the students.
In FDP workshop of BIT one new chapter of value education opened. The participants were comprises with not only faculty members but students, their family members and other stake holders of society. It was an endeavour to provide an opportunity to all these three components of our social units sit together and ponder over current challenges of society and entire existence. It is supposed that after this training they will work as an agent of harmony and peace development.
The daily routine of the program was commenced from 9:30 am to 7:30 pm with three short breaks and an hour lunch program.
