CM Dhami performed the Bhumi Pujan of the campus of Vishwa Bharti University
CM Dhami performed the Bhoomi Pujan of the first campus of the proposed Visva Bharati University (Visva Bharati University, Ramgarh) at Tagore Top of Ramgarh.
On the occasion of the 161st birth anniversary of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, CM Dhami said that a DPR of 150 crores has been prepared and sent to the Central Government for the university campus to be built on 46 acres of land, which is in the process of getting approval. CM Dhami said that the complex will be named after Gurudev's creation Gitanjali.
The program was organized by Shantiniketan Trust for Himalaya on the occasion of 161st birth anniversary of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore on Sunday. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami was the chief guest in the program. He started the program by lighting the lamp along with his wife. On the other hand, Trust President Devendra Dhela and former Foreign Secretary Shashank welcomed the Chief Minister and his wife with a bouquet and a shawl.
The Chief Minister said that Gurudev Rabindra Nath Tagore was inspired to establish Vishwa Bharati University in Ramgarh itself. In 1921 he founded Visva Bharati University. Gurudev wrote some excerpts of Gitanjali here in his Sheeshmahal located at Tagore Top. Today the campus of Visva-Bharati is going to be built on the same land. Which is a matter of pride. He said that the problem faced by the Uttarakhand government in allotment for setting up the university was removed.
Gurudev started a world-class tradition apart from the Macaulay model in the form of Shantiniketan in the company of nature. Where classes were held in the open sky under trees. This has been the land of the best scholars. Gurudev spent his whole life in a mud hut. Therefore, this complex will also be developed in the form of Pahari style of architecture. There will be courses like agriculture, forestry, innovation, local music, art, literature, local folk science, etc.
