Default Re: Delhi University Educational Trip

The University of Delhi assisted by the Indian Railways organized a dedicated train “Gyanodaya Express” for an educational journey by 940 NCC and NSS girl students from 32 colleges.

Projects were given to the students under supervision of teachers and mentors so
they could relate their knowledge to their experience.

The Safdarjung railway station to travel through central and western India for 12 days to understand the diversity of the country.

The students visit a number of historically and culturally important destinations such as Sabarmati, Mumbai Naval Base, Madgaon, ISRO and Wardha.

To impart experiential education and bring awareness of nation building, the itinerary was designed to promote confidence, knowledge and empathy in the students.

Through such first-hand contact with a variety of places and people it was expected that the young college students would realize the responsibilities of citizenship and also resonate to the call of their inner voice.

Most of all, Gandhi’s ideal of integrating the mind, heart and hands would be practiced during the journey.

The train was provided with laptops, internet connection and a library.

Based on the journey, students were encouraged to study compartment design, food habits, and sociological aspects of railway platforms, geography, agriculture, language and literature, ethnicity of people of the region.

They were also asked to write book reviews and travelogues.

It is expected that students on Gyanodaya Express would value Gandhi’s ideals of self-help and integrate those principles with the modernising aspects of India.
