Report on World Philosophy Day-2015

Posted by Dr Desh Raj Sirswal on November 24, 2015 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)

 

The Departments of Philosophy and Hindi, P.G.Govt. College for Girls, Sector-11, Chandigarh celebrated World Philosophy Day on 19th November, 2015. Dr. Anita Kaushal, the Principal of Post Graduate Govt. College for Girls, Sector-11, Chandigarh gave a floral welcome to the speaker. Dr. Anita Khosla, Head, Department of Hindi introduced the distinguished speaker. She mentioned that the present year being celebrated as 125th Birth Anniversary of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and such kind of lecture is a valuable step towards introducing students about the life and philosophy of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. Prof. Subhash Chander (Department of Hindi, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra) delivered his lecture on “Social Philosophy of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar.”

 

 

 

In his lecture he said that Dr. B. R. Ambedkar is one of the most eminent intellectual figures of modern India. He remained in the forefront of all social, economic, political and religious efforts for upliftment of the lowest stratum of the Indian society known as untouchables, women and other backward classes. He was a great scholar who made outstanding contributions as an economist, sociologist, legal luminary, educationist, journalist, parliamentarian and above all, as a social reformer and champion of human rights. He developed a socio-ethical philosophy and steadfastly stood for human dignity and freedom, socio-economic justice, material prosperity and spiritual discipline. Dr. Ambedkar had also given lot of emphasis on getting education. He said that, “Educate, Organize and Agitate”. Here he had given prime importance to education. He further added that the backward classes have come to realize that after all education is the greatest material benefit for which they can fight. We may forego material benefits of civilization but we cannot forego our rights and opportunities to reap the benefits of the highest education to the fullest extent. That the importance of this questions from the point of view of the dalits and backward classes who have just realized that without education their existence is not safe. Dr. Ambedkar suffered a lot due to this caste system. Still in that system of discrimination, he succeeded to well educate himself. He showed the enlightening path for Indian society via his ideals of freedom, equality and fraternity and made India a democratic country. The role Dr. B.R. Ambedkar played has left its imprint on the Indian society and is still shaping the social, educational, political affairs and motivating our lives. Perhaps none of this would have been possible if it was not for the constant struggle Dr. Ambedkar waged and the vision he embedded in the Constitution of India. We should try to read, think and work according to the noble ideas of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s ideas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this program, a poster published by the “The Positive Philosophy Society” of the college and following three lectures published by the Centre for Positive Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies (CPPIS) Pehowa (Kurukshetra) were released by the Principal and distinguish guests: 1. “Values and Society: Value and Society: Re-discovering the Primacy of Cultural Context” by Prof. Geeta Manaktala 2. “Values with reference to Sikhism” by Dr. Paramvir Singh 3. “Our Environment, Our Responsibility” by Dr. Sudhir Baweja All the above-mentioned lectures were delivered in ICPR “Periodical Lectures” organized by Departments of Philosophy and Hindi held on 11th February 2015.

 

This programme had an interactive session in the end and students discussed on various concepts related to the lecture like casteism, reservation, Indian society and got clarification from the speaker. In the end of the program Dr. Desh Raj Sirswal, Assistant Professor, Department of Philosophy has expressed the vote of thanks and pointed out that the present lecture is a significant step to teach and acquaint students with the key concepts of the social philosophy of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. About 60 students and faculty-members of the college have attended this lecture.

सभी साथियों को विश्व दर्शन दिवस की हार्दिक बधाई। दर्शन सिर्फ अवधारणाओं पर चिंतन नहीं है बल्कि उनको फलीभूत करने से भी जुड़ा है। जिस दिन दार्शनिक और विचारक अपने इस दायित्व को समझ जायेंगे उस दिन समझ लेना भारत सचमुच में आजाद हो गया। वरना धर्म और निम्न मुद्दों को उठाकर जनता को आपस में भिड़ाने वाले नेता और इनके टट्टुओं की इतनी हिम्मत न होती की देश को गर्त में ले जाने की। जिस दिन भारतीय समाज में दोबारा से चिंतन और मनन शुरू हो जायेगा और और लोग अपने सही शत्रुओं को पहचान कर उन्हें नकारना शुरू कर देंगे उस दिन देश की ज्यादातर सामाजिक समस्याओं से लड़ने का मार्ग हमारे पास होता। उसी स्वर्णिम दिवस की उम्मीद में हमारा चिंतन प्रयासरत रहना चाहिए।

 

आप सभी को इस पूर्ण दिवस की हार्दिक बधाई।

Dear Friends,

The Milestone Education Society (Regd.) Pehowa (Kurukshetra) working since 2005 in the field of school education, social work and higher education through its research initiatives. It started Center for Positive Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies (CPPIS) in 2010 and contributing continuously in the field of higher education through research journals, various programmes, and published books.

The present initiative Centre for Studies in Educational, Social and Cultural Development (CSESCD) will work on the issues related to downtrodden people though its various activity like discussions, programmes and publications etc. It also promotes the ideology of the educational thinkers who positively contributed in the society.

The present book, “Ideological Crisis in Indian Society “is the first initiative of the Centre. It includes six essays of the students who participated in the essay competition organized by the Centre for Positive Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies (CPPIS) and the Department of Philosophy, P.G.Govt College for Girls, Sector-11, Chandigarh to celebrate World Philosophy Day with the theme “Indian Society and Ideological Crisis” on 21st November, 2013. These essays highlight writers’ thinking and need further improvement on the basis of ideas.

On the occasion of Death Anniversary of Dr. B.R.Ambedkar, we dedicated this volume to this great personality who is the real motivation for us. His vision of social democracy and equality was closely related to good society, rationality and the scientific outlook.
