CBSE has introduced a new course about Indian traditions

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has introduced a new course about Indian traditions and believes that it will build "immense pride and raise self-esteem" of students. The course called 'Knowledge Traditions and Practices of India' is an elective subject for class XI and XII students.

CBSE director Sadhana Parashar has written to affiliated schools saying "It is hoped that all heads of schools will adopt this new initiative of the Board and assist us in our endeavour to nurture our intellectual heritage". The letter adds that "it has been the firm conviction of the CBSE, that the basis of all education which it seeks to impart, is the development of a strong value system and a deep pride for India's knowledge traditions and practices. In the absence of an easily accessible source of information, the knowledge traditions and practices remain untapped leading to ignorance and misconceptions".

Through the introduction of the newly introduced elective course in Std XI in 2012-13 and in Std XII in 2013-14, the CBSE aims to make the students aware of Indian's ancient land and culture. Students will be learning through various modules and develop an objective insight into the traditions and practices. The exercises and the activities mentioned for each module will enable a student to relate the traditional wisdom to the current times.
