Call for Papers
Milestone Education Review (The Journal of Ideas on Educational & Social Transformation)
Milestone Education Review (The Journal of Ideas on Educational & Social Transformation) is an online peer-reviewed bi-annual journal of Milestone Education Society (Regd.) Pehowa (Kurukshetra). For us education refers to any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual. The role of education must be as an instrument of social change and social transformation. Social transformation refers to large scale of social change as in cultural reforms and transformations. The first occurs with the individual, the second with the social system. This journal offers an opportunity to all academicians including educationist, social-scientists, philosophers and social activities to share their views. Each issue contains about 100 pages. This is a special call for papers for Milestone Education Review, Year 04, No. 01 (April, 2013) issue.
The world is celebrating 150th Birth Anniversary this year of a great son of India – Swami Vivekananda. Like the year, we have decided, our next issue will also be special. Dedicated to a theme which was so close to this visionary, whose revolutionary ideas continue to enlighten and inspire the entire humanity even today, this issue will be our humble tribute to him. Swami Vivekananda – the educationist par excellence, summed up the goal of education to be “Life Building, Man-making, character making, assimilation of ideas”. His contributions towards revitalizing education by highlighting the significance of value inculcation are of immense significance and need deeper introspection and wider deliberations.
