Happy New Year to all

नया साल मुबारक हो
आशा का दीपक / रामधारी सिंह "दिनकर"
वह प्रदीप जो दीख रहा है झिलमिल दूर नही है
थक कर बैठ गये क्या भाई मन्जिल दूर नही है
चिन्गारी बन गयी लहू की बून्द गिरी जो पग से
चमक रहे पीछे मुड देखो चरण-चिनह जगमग से
बाकी होश तभी तक, जब तक जलता तूर नही है
थक कर बैठ गये क्या भाई मन्जिल दूर नही है ।

Report on ICPR Sponsored One-Day Regional Seminar

Report on ICPR Sponsored One-Day Regional Seminar on “Reconsidering Classical Indian Thoughts’'
held on 27th  November, 2010

Department of Sanskrit and Philosophy of Post Graduate Govt. College for Girls, Sector-11, Chandigarh, organised a Regional Seminar on the theme “Reconsidering Classical Indian Thoughts”. The seminar was sponsored by Indian Council for Philosophical Research, New Delhi, to commemorate the birth anniversary of Socrates declared by UNESCO as World Philosophy Day. The detail report of the seminar is given below:
Inaugural Session, Prof. Ramakant Angiras (Ex. Professor of Kalidass Chair, Panjab University, Chandigarh) was the Chief Guest on this occasion. Prof. Dharmendra Goel (Professor Emeritus, Department of Philosophy, Panjab University, Chandigarh) was Invited as Guest of Honour, Prof. K.K.Sharma ( Former Pro-Vice-Chancellor, NEHU, Shillong and Director, Centre for Sri Aurobindo Studies, Sohan Lal DAV College of Education, Ambala City) delivered his Key-Note address on the theme “Growing Influence on Classical Indian Philosophy”.
Dr. Sham Lata, Vice-Principal and Programme Convener, welcomed the distinguished speakers, guests and also introduced the theme of the Seminar. She pointed out that every person has his own philosophy, ethics and thoughts of life but the Classical Indian Thoughts teach us how to practice them correctly. In the key-note address, Prof. K.K.Sharma emphasized that the Philosophy of a country is the essence of its culture and civilization which springs from ideas that prevail in its atmosphere and bears its unconscious stamp. However, there is a need to redefine and reinterpret them keeping in mind the changing environment. He also raised some fundamental questions related to classical Indian thought which should be the issue of concentration by our present academic and non-academic scholars.
While speaking on the occasion, the Chief guest Prof. Ramakant Angiras, stressed upon the fact that for over 3000 years there has been an uninterrupted Indian culture projected in Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagwad Gita, Mahabharata, Ramayana and in the poetical philosophy of Vedanta. But there is an urgent need today not only to reconsider Indian Classical thoughts but we must also rediscover and reconstruct them for leading a better life.
Prof. Dharmendra Goel pointed out that man is responsible for shaping his own life. Quoting Lenin he clarified that a person should work for his liberation. He suggested that the best way of learning philosophy is to come in contact with the minds of the great philosophers. Socrates did not claim that he knew everything; on the contrary, he admitted his ignorance before discussing anything. His method and attitude was quite different. By means of skillful questioning he would lead his pupils to realize their ignorance and errors of thinking. The questions which Socrates asked were concerned with the nature and meaning of justice, truth, goodness and beauty. Knowledge, in Socrates’ view is essential for good conduct.
Mrs. Achila Dogra, Principal of the College also glorified the rich culture and heritage of India, which has a lot of depth to teach and share with young generation. She pointed out that the present seminar is a significant step as it recognizes the potentials of classical Indian tradition and its vast wisdom to contribute in all realms of life.
The seminar had two sessions with ten papers. In the first session, chaired by Prof. K.K.Sharma, following five papers were presented on different topics:
1. Dr. Shankarji Jha (Chairperson, Department of Sanskrit, Panjab University, Chandigarh) : Vachaspati’s View on Indian Syllogism (Anumiti-prakriya)

The philosophy of a country is the essence of its culture and civilization. It springs from ideas that prevail in its atmosphere and bears its unconscious stamp. For over 3000 years there has been an uninterrupted culture in India. We have the great songs of the Vedas, the splendour of the Upanishads, the glory of the Bhagavad-Gita, the vastness of the Mahabharata, the tenderness and heroism found in the Ramayana, the wisdom of the fables and stories in India, the scientific philosophy of Sankhya, the psychological philosophy of Yoga, the poetical philosophy of Vedanta, the laws of Manu, the Dhamma of Buddha, the Triratnas of Jains, the grammar of Panini , the core nationalism of Kautilya ,the lyrical poetry and drama cultivated in the great works of Kalidasa. The writings, in which classical Indian thoughts based on, are most of them written in Sanskrit language except for those of modern period. Classical Indian thoughts are very pluralistic with diverse schools, systems, languages and religions that flourished on the Indian soil for millennia.
Recent years have seen the beginning of a radical reassessment of the philosophical literature of ancient and classical India. The analytical techniques of contemporary philosophy are being deployed towards fresh and original interpretation of the texts. This rational, rather than mystical approach towards Indian philosophical theories have resulted in a need to work which explain afresh its central methods, courses and devices. To celebrate World Philosophy Day to commemorate the birth anniversary of Socrates as declared by UNESCO, the present seminar is a significant step on this part because it recognizes the potentials of classical Indian tradition and its vast wisdom to contribute in all realms of life.
We have identified the following sub-themes for an in-depth understanding under the proposed seminar:
· Historical Development of Classical Indian Thoughts
· Ecological Aspects of Vedic Literature
· Socio-Political Philosophy in Ramayana
· Ethical Teachings in Mahabharata
· Psycho-Spiritual Approaches to Upanishads
· Social Welfare in Srimad Bhagavad -Gita
· Development of Indian Logic
· Development of Natural Philosophy in Indian Thoughts
· Linguistic Approach in Indian Philosophy
  • Indian Value System: Theory & Practice
Research papers are invited from faculty and research scholars on the thrust area of the Seminar or any other related topic with an abstract of 200 words latest by 20 November, 2010 by surface mail or e-mail to
