Ethics are central to all human development in the current knowledge era where technological innovations and human organisations are playing a pivotal role in shaping the pace and progress of societies. The most effective way to bring ethical consciousness to play its rightful role is to build it from the very early stage of person’s life, particularly from primary education stage itself. Given the complexity of structures which navigate the enormously diverse functions and professions in society, the codes and standards in various professions had been instrumental value in the practice of ethics. In this context, the Indian heritage and traditions could be of seminal value for the development of ethics. The current trend of educational reform to provide student centric and holistic education finds its echoes from the rich heritage in ancient India which used to inculcate spirit of equality, social awareness and practical efficiency in pupils and thus leading the education system towards the highest level.

Abstract


Ethics are central to all human development in the current knowledge era where technological innovations and human organisations are playing a pivotal role in shaping the pace and progress of societies. The most effective way to bring ethical consciousness to play its rightful role is to build it from the very early stage of person’s life, particularly from primary education stage itself. Given the complexity of structures which navigate the enormously diverse functions and professions in society, the codes and standards in various professions had been instrumental value in the practice of ethics. In this context, the Indian heritage and traditions could be of seminal value for the development of ethics. The current trend of educational reform to provide student centric and holistic education finds its echoes from the rich heritage in ancient India which used to inculcate spirit of equality, social awareness and practical efficiency in pupils and thus leading the education system towards the highest level.
