Apparently, The life stories of Sachin Tendulkar and Rajinikanth features in Maharashtra school and CBSE text books respectively. While Sachin’s chapter has been included in Marathi and English subject textbooks of Class IV students in Maharashtra, Rajini’s chapter was placed in CBSE’s Course Book 6 of ‘Learning to Communicate’ and it is also classified under the ‘Dignity of Work’ section.
Soon after the swearing-in ceremony of 15th Prime Minister, Several BJP-ruled states came up with the idea of including Narendra Modi’s life story in school textbooks and they even began doing everything to make it a reality. However, Modi firmly opposed this idea as he believes the life story of living individuals shouldn’t be included as a part of school curriculum. Instead, The PM advised them to include the life history of stalwarts who sacrificed their lives to make India what it is Today in the textbooks as Young Minds should know about these great people and choose them as role models.
Hasn’t Modi set a good example by softy turning down the honour he would be receiving? Respect PM!
