All of Odisha woke up today to the news of “Kripalu University to be Opened in Odisha”. Here are few cuttings of the coverage which says, “Kripalu University to be opened in Odisha.
Very soon the Jagadguru Kripalu University is going to open in Odisha. The government of Odisha has approved the opening of this private university. The bill will be placed in Odisha Vidhan Sabha very soon. Jagadguru Kripalu Yog Trust (JKYT) will establish this university in Banara, under the Banki subdivision of Cuttack district, Odisha. For this government of Odisha has provided 100 acres of land to the trust. It is to be noted that MOU was signed by the Govt of Odisha and the JKYT in the year 2008. The number of Universities under Higher Education will increase to 18 once it is approved and regularized. The Higher Education department after scrutinizing the application of the organization has intimated to the govt. Of Odisha for approval. In between Honorable Chief Minister has given consent to this organization.
In the proposed proposal the University will impart education in Yoga, Naturopathy, Philosophy, and Spiritual Sciences. The organization has displayed interest in the inclusion of Nano-technology, Engineering, and Management courses. However, the Committee headed by GVV Sharma, the additional secretary has given its views that the organization should impart the study of Spiritual Sciences, Yoga and Naturopathy, and Philosophy by the virtue of their experiences in this line. Besides this university will be helpful to expedite the study of Ayush Chikitsha.”
