Research For Resurgence : Bhārata Is Changing
I remembered a conversation happened between me and my friend long ago, may be 7-8 years back. We were discussing about establishing a research centre in Bhārata, it happened during our morning walk when we were discussing about some out of the box ideas.
I am happy today because the life has given me an opportunity to work for one such great research foundation. I must say that Bhārata is changing, something really great is about to happen in near future, soon Bhārata will once again emerge as “Vishwa Guru”.
Let me elaborate what is changing and what is Research For Resurgence Foundation. RFRF is an ambitious project started by Bharatiya Shikshana Mandala, a non profit organisation working to bring Bharatiyata in Bharatiya Education. Great minds at Bharatiya Shikshana Mandala while doing brainstorming session, the discussion gave an insight on research works happening within the nation. It is then organisation felt the importance of research work and started discussing with eminent researchers, scientists, academicians.
Several such discussions , workshops started giving a very good shape and more clarity on what is need to be done. Research For Resurgence Foundation has been started with a great vision. Research has no boundary, any one can do a research, in fact most of the inventions happened either accidentally or because of the necessity. As we all know necessity is the mother of invention.
So far in Bhārata research quality has gone really low, research is being done for the sake of better jobs, but a true research is not that, something unbelievable has to be done to call it as a research. Another important aspect the organisation considering is , the research should be socially relevant and it is not mandatory to have a qualification to do any research. Even a farmer who has done something different for his necessity and wish to explore something new, even he will get an opportunity to do a research, we call them as Non-Formal-Researchers
What is Research For Resurgence (RFRF) ?
RFRF is an idea of Bharatiya Shikshana Mandal which creates a platform for such research ideas which are socially relevant and imbibe ‘Bharatiya Integrated Perspective’. If any one of you who does’t have any qualifying degree but you have any crazy idea which might look impossible then you have a great opportunity to get associated with Bharatiya Shikashana Mandal.
RFRF will bring a great platform for researchers, you will be getting guidance from eminent researchers,scientists and also funding for your research work if its really a great idea and has a social relevance.
RFRF International Conference :
Bharatiya Shikashan Mandal organised an international conference on Research For Resurgence at VNIT Nagpur, where a total of 728 scholars from Bharat and 9 other countries, 68 universities from 15 states including 17 central institutes. Participation of 24 industrial houses and organisations including TATASONS,CEAT,RPG,MIDC,MADC,FICCI,CII made involvement. The conference was graced by the attendance of 55 Vice Chancellors and heads of National Authorities in the field of educational such as NAAC,AICTE,NCTE.
Noted economist S Gurumurthy said “Prejudiced mindset of the intellectuals about Bharat and everything that is Bharateeya proved fatal for innovation”.
Bharata Emerging As Vishwa Guru Again
Ancient Bharata was a glorious Bharata, we knew that our Past was wonderful but it is the time to prove it and bring it back to the present. Swami Vivekananda Said Bharata is a Vishwa Guru, Bharat has talented minds but every Bharatiya should work towards bringing back that glorious Bharat again, in this journey the research will play a vital role and RFRF is opening a door for the bright future .
