Shah said that Vedic education synthesizing modern and Vedic education would be the best alternative to modern system of education.
By making the option of Vedic education in the form of this institution, Baba Ramdev has shown us the way out to counter Macaulay’s divisive education system that was founded during the British occupation of India, Shah said.
