“This should have happened long ago. It is a matter of surprise why it wasn’t done before. It is being taught since March this year when the textbook was released,” NCERT Director Dinesh Prasad Saklani said while speaking to ANI on the inclusion of the new chapter: ‘A Homage to our Brave Soldiers’ in NCERT textbooks. 

“NCERT is making efforts to bring new books in the coming year. All this is being done with the aim of telling students about how India carried out Covid management, the G20 summit, the Chandrayaan mission etc and furthering students’ critical thinking, logical mindset and research orientation,” Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on the addition of the new chapter on the National War Memorial in NCERT textbooks. 

Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the National War Memorial on February 25, 2019. Besides promoting a sense of sacrifice and national spirit among the people of the country, the memorial was set-up as tribute to the brave soldiers of the country who sacrificed their lives defending the nation.
