Subjects of many sciences were taught to those students in many
branches such as Veda, Jyothisha, artha-shastra, warfare, martial arts,
etc., etc. by qualified and experienced teachers, on which platform we
stand today in this modern world.
Nalanda International University is the name of a proposed university in
Nalanda, Bihar, India, with its academic session is set to start. But the
university is based on the ideal of the ancient center of higher learning,
which was present from the 5th century AD to 1197 AD, said to have
established during the reign of a kinq called Sakraditya.
Perhaps Nalanda University was the first great university in the recorded
history of mankind, and was one of the world's first residential Universities
in India, and it had proudly accommodated around 10,000 students. The
first University in modern medieval era was probably set up circa AD 1088
in Europe in the city of Bologna, Italy, for higher learning and for awarding
degree, which was called University of Bologna.
As time turned and eras erased, many Universities were set up all across
the globe. 28th US President Thomas Woodrow Wilson was previously the
President of the Princeton University in the USA from 1902 to 1910.
Indian President Sarvepalle Radhakrishnan was too Vice Chancellor of
The information and technology has grown vertically and horizontally and
is beyond anyone's stretch of imagination. Internet is a huge oceanic
platform with gigantic depth used to reach out to for any information, and
it is now available at the finger tips.
Many treat the subject of Astrology merely as an objective tool just good
enough to use for marriage matching. The society is not really aware of
the role of Astrology in the important events of one's life, let alone
education as a branch.
Indeed, Astrology is termed and considered largely as a subject and object
of belief by a particular religion. It is misunderstood and mis-
conceptualized as a subject of superstition or fatalism. Partly our fore-
bearers are also to be blamed for this. Remedial measures prescribed by
an astro are related to religious practices, secret procedures and secret
oaths. Hence it is too easier to misunderstand this subject by general
mass and term it as a subject betrothed and wedded to a particular
religion. Common people seldom understood that Astrology is science,
and therefore every astro-practioners should face up to the challenges of
presenting the subject as science. It is very easy to misunderstand a
person or a subject, but it is very difficult to understand anyone or
anything correctly, articulately or thoroughly.
Education is wealth as without education, life shall be miserable for most
of the citizens, and it contributes directly to the economic growth of a
country. President John F Kennedy-said that a child mis-educated, is a
child lost. Education is the stepping stones and stare-case to prosperity
for any individual. The result of getting one educated is enormous that it
cannot be printed on a single paper and the dimension of such a paper is
beyond length and breadth, anyone could imagine.
It is the dream of every parent that their children get educated to a
decent level. Children too are ambitious to get graduation degree from a
University and look forward to receiving higher education. A child, who
carries a bag on the back, holds a lunch basket in one hand; goes to
school religiously from your neighborhood could be a daily scene for you.
But that child could sometimes be the future President or Prime Minister or
a celebrity film or sports star. Unless better education is attained, the
position parents dream of and a student endeavors to achieve is seldom
