Ujjain: The second day of a workshop held by Lokmanya Tilak Shikshan Samiti for its teaching staff on Friday, discussed social problems bothering society in present times. Caste based reservation, the recent amendment in the SC/ST Act by the apex court, and related issues were focused on by vice chancellor of Bhoj university, Bhopal, Dr Ravindra Kanhere, who was the key speaker. Certain factions of the society, he said, have been using these issues as a tool to spread violence and unnerve people.
The first session of the workshop was inaugurated by Lokmanya Tilak Shikshan Samiti head Kishore Khandelwal, who also welcomed Kanherkar and guests in the presence of the executive officer of the committee Girish Bhalerao, and workshop convener, Dr Sangita Patkar.
The chief orator of the second session of the workshop was Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Sansthan Auragabad functionary, Dr Madhushri Sawji. She explained the intimate relationship between people, family, society and the nation. Sawji also threw light on the nuances of ‘deeksha’. According to her there are three types of ‘deeksha’ in society, nayan deeksha, sparsh deeksha and vichar deeksha. Sawji was greeted by the head of the organising committee, Kishore Khandelwal.
