In a live videocast from New Delhi, Mr. Kalam told the participants of an international symposium here that another “mission” would be to “work towards building an inclusive society in a world free of violence, terror, war, and fear.” Spelling out the global vision of the “fully autonomous academic body” proposed to be set up at the original site of the ancient Nalanda university, the President said its functional basis would be determined through a “process of discussion with hundred scholars drawn from different parts of the world.” They “may include those who have been internationally recognized for their exemplary contribution to peace in the world.”
Mr. Kalam explained how he came to envision the concept of “a unique institution in Nalanda in the context of current ambience in the world.” This project, designed for a “unity of minds” in the 21st century, would draw “inspiration from the rich historical traditions of Nalanda, Bodhgaya, where Lord Buddha got enlightenment, and other spiritual centres in Bihar.” Being planned as a multi-discipline university, it will have a sweeping focus from science and technology to spirituality.
The force, to be controlled by the superintendents of police of respective districts, would be deployed at various tourist spots like Rajgir, Nalanda, Bodh Gaya, Patna, Munger and other such places to promote tourism, official sources told.“The recruits would be imparted training on tourist management and the orientation programme will be organised by the union ministry of tourism”, they said. Besides, the state public works department would develop the eco-tourism project at Valmikinagar, they said, adding that an Austrian firm, Dopple Mayer, was preparing the ropeway project at the Pragbodhi hill, where Buddha meditated for five years before attaining enlightment.
