first_imgThe community of Uitvlugt on the West Coast of Demerara will see the construction of a new Gurukula (learning institution) which is expected to be completed by the year 2020. A ground-breaking ceremony was consecrated with a havan on February 4, 2018, to commence the construction of the building. The land, measuring 300 feet by 100 feet, was donated by the Uitvlugt Arya Samaj.According to Dr Satish Prakash, who spearheads the operations, the building will function as a residential school but following the lines of an ashram as it relates to discipline. The curriculum will be dual-secular and religious and students will live at the institution.The proposed plan of the completed buildingThe aim of the secular curriculum will be to assist those persons who were not successful at their Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination and wish to rewrite eight of them, so as to gain admission at a university. Dual curriculum caters to CXC subjects, Hindi, Sanskrit, Shastras, yoga and music.Another objective of the organisation is to make it a centre for social service, and also function as a health centre, providing basic health care.Around 400 persons were present at the ceremony. Funds were donated for the construction and many have pledged to donate in the future to complete the institution.Dr Prakash aims at improving the moral values amongst Guyanese which have been diminished under the influence of suicides, broken homes, alcoholism, school dropouts, crime and economic slide. He will also lead the recruitment of teachers. This institution will be the first of its kind in the Caribbean and students will set across Guyana after studying to serve their society.last_img read more
