#238 -some exam questions to students of Andhra Pradesh


HYDERABAD: School textbooks for Class IX will have a chapter on Swami Vivekananda from the next academic year. Officials of the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), AP, said textbooks are currently being revised and the new chapter on Swami Vivekananda will be included in the Telugu non-detail book of Class IX. Incidentally, the move coincides with the 150th birth anniversary year of Swami Vivekananda, 2013.

"In 2009, a GO was issued which stated that a lesson on Swami Vivekananda's life and his teachings should be included in Class IX textbooks. Last year we revised the books of Class VI and VII and this year we are working on Class VIII and IX books. So next academic year onwards students will be reading the chapter," said Upendra Reddy, HoD, curriculum, SCERT, AP.

It is now, the turn of the students of Andhra Pradesh to be banged with the Vivekananda stuff. The Officials administering the curriculum, State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), Andhra Pradesh, have obviously yielded to the pressures of the Ramakrishna Math.
