The registrar said that the initiative attempts to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical spheres of knowledge. Explaining the philosophical, sociological and psychological perspectives of education, professor Sunil Kumar Singh, coordinator of the fellowship said that strengthening the inner-self is as important as polishing one’s external skills and abilities.

This is what the ancient Indian wisdom also talks about, added Singh, as he referred to the scriptures like Upnishadas, Bhagvad Gita and various Indian philosophies and yoga.
