Education is the only channel for imbibing good 'sanskaras' and values. However, if the present day education is focused on language and grammar and neglecting values and sensitivity, lamented Dr. Mohan Agashe, eminent film and theatre personality.
He made this remark while accepting the joint award instituted by Bharatiya Vidya Bhvan, Pune Kendra and Adv. D. R. Nagarkar Foundation, Pune. In addition to regular studies, students should be encouraged to develop hobbie. The textbooks and teachings method should be designed to create interest amongst children. The curriculum or textbooks should never be dry and boring.
Prof. Nandkumar Kakirde, director and Hon. Secretary, welcomed the guests and also introduced the chief guest of the function. Dr. Mohan Agashe was felicitated by Dr. Jabbar Patel for his outstanding contribution in the field of theatre and Indian cinema and psychology. Dr. Arun Firodia, vice chairman of Bhavan's Pune Kendra, presided over the function. Dr. Arwind Nagarkar and Smt. Sharmila Nagarkar, trustee of Adv. D. R. Nagarkar Foundation, were present on the occasion.
Dr. Jabbar Patel highlighted various landmarks in Dr. M. Agashe's career. Dr. Agashe was instrumental in taking Indian theatre on the global platform through famous Marathi play 'Ghashiram Kotwal.' Shri Arun Firodia, Dr. Arwind Nagarkar also spoke on the occasion. Smt. Sharmila Nagarkar read out the Manpatra given to Dr. Agashe. Smt. Rajasree Khankhoje rendered Bhavan's Prayer and Pasayadan at the end and also proposed vote of thanks.
