PM Modi said further that, we had derived conclusions doing research in every field from zero to infinity in that period when other countries were known for their royal families, but India was known for its Gurukuls. Gurukul mean Guru’s root. Universities like Nalanda, and Takshashila were our global glory of Guru tradition. With a view to enhancing our ancient tradition, Swaminarayan is establishing a ‘Girl’s Gurukul’. This Gurukul has instilled very good thoughts in students in the last 75 years, through which they will succeed in making all-around development.
