Guidance Notice Circular for Schools under National Games Awareness Campaign

Guidance Notice Circular for Schools under National Games Awareness Campaign.

As you are aware that the idea of a sustained and structured cultural connect between people of different regions was mooted by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India during the Rashtriya Ekta Divas (31st October, 2015) on the occasion of birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel to celebrate cultural diversity through mutual interaction and reciprocity between people of different States and UTs.

Towards achieving this, every State and UT in the country has been paired with another State and UT for a year, during which they would carry out a structured engagement with one another in the spheres of language, literature, cuisine, festivals, cultural events, tourism etc.

The canvas of Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat (EBSB) encompasses all the States and Union Territories of India. The matrix of paired States and UTs is given in annexure.

1. Organize at least 3-4 different activities in a year as suggested in annexure B under ‘Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat’ Programme during the year by integrating them in regular activities of the school.

2. Prepare an annual action plan for the effective implementation of the programme. Ensure the inclusion of EBSB activities in the annual academic calendar of the school, by linking each activity to a life skill/ learning skill/ media skill.

3. Organize these activities in coordination with the partner State/UT, keeping in view the academic calendar.

4. Ensure appointment of Nodal Teacher in charge in the school to plan and conduct different EBSB activities.

5. Establish EBSB Club in the school.

6. Merge the activities to be conducted under Jal Shakti Abhiyan: catch the rain campaign with the tagline ‘Catch the Rain, where it falls’ with the EBSB. Suggestive activities are given in annexure C.

7. Give adequate publicity to the activities conducted under EBSB and reach out to the larger community through innovative and effective ways.

8. Upload photographs, tweets, reports, etc. of activities undertaken on social media with hashtag

Every student in the country will participate in a fun project/activity on ‘The Languages of India’, sometime in Grades 6-8, such as, under the ‘Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat’ initiative.

In this project/activity, students will learn about the remarkable unity of most of the major Indian languages, starting with their common phonetic and scientifically-arranged alphabets and scripts, their common grammatical structures, their origins and sources of vocabularies from Sanskrit and other classical languages, as well as their rich inter-influences and differences.

They will also learn what geographical areas speak which languages, get a sense of the nature and structure of tribal languages, and learn to saycommonly spoken phrases and sentences in every major language of India and also learn a bit about the rich and uplifting literature of each (through suitable translations as necessary).

Such an activity would give them both a sense of the unity and the beautiful cultural heritage and diversity of India and would be a wonderful icebreaker their whole lives as they meet people from other parts of India.

This project/activity would be a joyful activity and would not involve any form of assessment
