Which Celebrity thinks that it should be part of academic syllabus?
Actress Mouni Roy feels that “Bhagavad Gita” should be a part of syllabus in India. The actress have turned into a Hindu scripture during Lockdown and figured out that,” It’s core Values and believes should be inculcated at School level.”
Actress Mentions that “I read Bhagavad Gita Ka Saar in childhood but didn’t understand it until now. See, one of my friends started reading the Bhagavad Gita and I also joined the class — this is before lockdown — and I didn’t make many classes due to my hectic schedule. But during the lockdown, I was very religious. I think it should be a part of our school curriculum. I genuinely feel that it is more than a religious book. It is ‘life ka saar’ (crux of life), eternal knowledge, and it is basic knowledge. If you have a question in your head, the Gita has the answer.”
She was asked about what if entertainment Industry needs to inculcate Gita Teachings?
She Answers “The Gita is needed worldwide, not just in India or Bollywood or School. In India, it could change the orthodox thought process in families. We talk about ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’. Instead, it should be ‘Beta Padhao, Beta Bachao’, I think society is in need of this knowledge or awareness.”
Mouni Adds” “We literally live in ignorance. We come from a country of the Vedas and the Upanishad, yet we don’t do anything. We are sitting on a gold mine and we don’t do anything on it. The entertainment industry is a stressful place, you don’t have the concept of Saturdays and Sundays, a 9-to-5 job, and we are constantly consumed in our minds and thoughts. So, for sure, the Gita is needed here, but having said that I think (be it) the rural, the urban, and the metros, everyone is in dire need of the Bhagwad Geeta’s teachings.”
