Dr. Hadibandhu Behera

Abstract


M. K. Gandhi, the lovely and very good minded universal person, who was born in India in the modern age. He stressed on traditional spiritual attitude with the total development from education, which is related to modern age of the world with reference to India. Gandhi is the politician, the philosopher, the socialist and the educationist. He lives with the accumulation of Karmayaog and Gyanyoga. The thought of Gandhi on Education is the basic way of life for all.An attempt has been made to analyze the impact assessment of educational philosophy of  Gandhiji,with special reference to curriculum of basic education.This study is primarily empirical as well as analytical in nature covering the areas of Gandhiji’s educational philosophy such as view of life,historical background of basic education,meaning of basic education,main features of basic education and curriculum of basic education.This paper also tries to examine general merits and demerits of basic education and its relevance in modern society with the help of scientific outlook.He wanted a silent social revolution through basic education which does not stand for mere technique rather it stands for a new crafts–centered approach full of spirit and self realization which always seeks truth.Finally a critical evaluation is made on the basis of relevance of basic education in present times of Gandhian educational philosophy.
