Introduce Gita, Mahabharata in class 1: SC judge

AHMEDABAD: Lauding the ancient system of imparting education, Supreme Court justice A R Dave said on Saturday that given a choice, he would like to introduce the Gita and the Mahabharata for study from class 1 in schools.

Talking on ‘Contemporary Issues and Challenges of Human Rights in the Era of Globalization’ during the inaugural ceremony of a workshop, Justice Dave said, “Somebody who is very secular… so-called secular will not agree… Had I been the dictator of India, I would have introduced the Gita and the Mahabharata in class 1. That is the way you learn how to live life.”

The SC judge stressed going back to traditions to solve modern problems. “Our old tradition such as ‘Guru-Shishya parampara’ is lost. If it had been there, we would not have all these problems (violence, conflicts and terrorism) in our country. Now we see terrorism in other countries.” On the requirement of being good to form a just society, he said, “If I am good, if every person of my country is good, my administrator is bound to be good. If everybody in a democratic country is good, then they would naturally elect somebody who is very good. And that person will never think of damaging anybody else.”

Justice Dave said the Gandhian values of non-violence and peace have to play a big role, adding, “So by bringing all good things in each and every human being, we can stop violence everywhere. And for that purpose we have to go back to our own things again.”

After Justice Dave, the Chief Justice of Bombay High Court, M S Shah, said the benefits of globalization should reach to all to solve the present crisis. “If we do not share the profits of globalization, the benefits of globalization, it would be like raising serious challenges. Human being is at the centre of development and all are entitled to live a healthy and protected life,” he said.
