‘Deshbhakti’ curriculum to be included in Delhi schools from Sept 27: CM

“Delhi gave yoga to the entire world but now it is becoming extinct. Apart from the International Yoga Day celebrations on June 21 that is held every year, there is not much happening for yoga,” said, Chief Minister Kejriwal.

On Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal proclaimed the launch of the ‘Deshbhakti’ curriculum that is supposed to be rolled out in government schools from September 27 as a token of gratitude to freedom fighter Bhagat Singh. After hoisting the Indian national flag at Delhi Secretariat to mark the auspicious Independence Day, he commenced with the idea of introducing the newest initiative for the targeted group of beneficiaries.

He further announced the yoga classes which will begin from October 2 in Delhi’s halls and parks.

“Delhi gave yoga to the entire world but now it is becoming extinct. Apart from the International Yoga Day celebrations on June 21 that is held every year, there is not much happening for yoga,” said, Chief Minister Kejriwal. We will be starting yoga classes and are preparing a huge team of yoga teachers and instructors. A group of 30-40 people, who want to learn yoga, can approach us and we will provide yoga instructors,” Kejriwal added.

“For the last 1.5 years, people are facing the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic and a large number of doctors, paramedics and frontline workers have lost their lives. India has witnessed two waves of Covid-19. Delhi has witnessed four – in June 2020, September 2020, November 2020 and April 2021. The April wave in Delhi was the most dangerous. There will hardly be any family in Delhi which has not seen infection among relatives. So many of them lost their loved ones. It was an emotional phase for us. Our ministers, MLAs, officers worked 24×7 to save lives,” averred Kejriwal in his speech.

The chief minister announced the arousal of “Deshbhakti” with the primary aim of instilling a feeling of pride in every child and simultaneously prepare them to whole-heartedly give their everything for the nation’s development and well-being.
