We will also start medical studies in Hindi soon, ”said Madhya Pradesh Medical Education Minister Vishwas Sarang.

As per the recommendation of the Curriculum Committee for Higher Education, the philosophy of Ramcharitmanas has been introduced as an alternative course for first year BA students from the academic session of 2021-22. It will consist of a 100-mark question paper and will cover topics such as 'Spirituality and Religion in the Original Sources of Indian Culture', 'Four Era of Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas', 'Differences between Ramayana and Shri Ramcharitman' and 'Incarnation of Divine Existence'.
The preface to the Mahabharata, written by C. Rajagopalachari, will be taught to first year students in a foundation course in English.

This course is being implemented on the recommendation of scholars. He also said that NASA's study has proved that the Ram Setu is a man-made bridge built millions of years ago.
