Verzotto Memorial Lecture 2020

Topic: Education to Cultural Values

Synopsis: 

The capacity to discern and transmit positive cultural values is an integral part of every educational system and educational process. Cultural values make up the identity of an individual and society or nation as a whole. Every culture has its values, and every individual, inserted in that culture, is impregnated with those values. The feeling of being and having a cultural identity is necessary for social inclusion and every person's growth. Every culture has not only positive values but also negative ones. We intend to enumerate and explain some of the essential positive values and negative values of our Indian culture. The question: are there common values shared among us Indians, belonging to diverse religions, various languages, various ethnic groups with their regional and cultural differences, multiple castes, etc., that offer us a singular cultural identity (indianness) of our own? The answer is that despite all differences and diversities, one cannot deny that there does exist an underlying unity, a unity, an identity, perhaps, often ignored or not taken into consideration in our time. Some of the most important positive values are a deep sense of religiosity, religions and religious practices, religious greeting, secularism, pluralism and democracy, reverence for life, food and nutrition, ayurveda, classical arts, dances, music, and festivities. Some of the negative values are the superiority of men, the lower status of women, of widows, practice of satī, child marriage, dowry system, abortion of unwanted female children, caste system, the abyss between rich and poor, corruption, the conflict between Hindus and Muslims, and dirt.

Don Bosco

Saint John Bosco, popularly known as Don Bosco (Italian expression for ‘Father Bosco’) was born at Becchi, in Piedmont, Italy on August 16, 1815. From a very young age, he had decided that he had been called to work for the poor boys of that era when Europe was under the grip of the Industrial Revolution, and many young people who came to the cities to study or in search of work fell an easy prey to the many social evils of the time.

After being ordained a priest of the Catholic Church in 1841, Don Bosco came to the rescue of these poor boys with his novel method of educating youth through total dedication and personal involvement in their lives and problems. To continue his mission of serving the young, in 1859, he founded a Roman Catholic Religious Congregation of Priests and Brothers called the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), with its headquarters in Italy. Currently serving in 136 countries across the globe, Don Bosco Fathers and Brothers are at the service of young people, shaping their career and accompanying them as friends for a meaningful and fulfilling life.

Don Bosco visualized education as a matter of the heart rooted on the principles of loving kindness and selfless service. He created a unique system of education that moulds the whole person – body, heart, mind and spirit. He strongly believed that the hearts of young people can easily be won through love, patience and empathy and not with intimidation and punishment. Don Bosco’s paradigm of education, globally recognized as ‘Preventive System’, is embedded on 3 Rs, namely, REASON (Intellectual Growth– IQ), RELATIONSHIP (Emotional Growth – EQ) and RELIGION (Spiritual Growth – SQ).

The Unique Selling Proposition (USP) of Don Bosco institutions is the family ambience, a home-away-from-home setting. Don Bosco used to say, “It is not enough to love the young. They must know that they are loved.”

Educating for a happy life in Don Bosco’s Way is a unique contribution to the science of holistic education. Beginning in 1841, it has proved its versatility across continents, cultures and contexts, regardless of the differences and challenges so typical of grass-root implementation – from formal educational institutes of higher learning to non-formal programmes for children on the streets; from lobbying for child-rights at the United Nations to safeguarding those same privileges in the favellas of San Paulo or the bastis of Mumbai.
