The first school in England opened in 1811. At that time India had 732000 Gurukuls.
Gurukul was a residential schooling system whose origin dates back to around 5000 BC in the Indian subcontinent. It was more prevalent during the Vedic age where students were taught various subjects and about how to live a cultured and disciplined life. Gurukul was the home of a teacher or Acharya and was the center of learning where pupils resided till their education got complete.

All this education was taught in Gurukul, but with time, when Gurukul disappeared, this knowledge also disappeared! Today, the future of the youth of our country is being destroyed by the Macaulay method.
The redemption of Gurukul is needed in today's times.
How did Gurukul end in India? The introduction of Convent education ruined Gurukuls. Indian Education Act was formed in 1858 It was drafted by 'Lord Macaulay'.
Macaulay surveyed the education system here (India), many Britishers had given their reports about India's education system. One of the British officers was G.W. Luther and the other was Thomas Munro! Both of them had surveyed different areas at different times. Luther, who surveyed North India, wrote that there is 97 % literacy here and Munro, who surveyed South India, wrote that here there is 100% literacy.
Macaulay had clearly said that if India is to be enslaved forever, its ??*indigenous and cultural education system* ?? must be completely demolished and replaced with ?? English education system ?? and only then will Indians be physically Indians, but mentally become English. When they leave the convent schools or English universities, they will work in the interest of English men.
Macaulay is using an idiom - ?? Just as a farm is thoroughly plowed before a crop is planted, so must it be plowed and brought in the English education system. ?? That's why he first declared Gurukuls illegal. Then he declared Sanskrit illegal and the Gurukul's of this country finished it by roaming around setting them on fire, beat the teachers in it, and put them in jail.
Till 1850 there were ' 7 lakh 32 thousand ' Gurukuls in this country and at that time there were ' 7 lakhs 50 thousand ' villages in India. Meaning every village had an average Gurukul and all these Gurukuls used to be ' Higher Learning Institute ' in today's language. 18 subjects were taught in all of them and these people of Gurukul Semaj used to run these together, not by the king.
Education was given free in Gurukuls. This is how all Gurukuls were abolished and then English education was legalized and the first convent school opened in Calcutta. At that time it was called 'free school'. Under this law, Calcutta University was created in India, Bombay University was created, Madras University was created, these three slavery-era universities are still in the country!
Macaulay had written a letter to his father. It is a very famous letter; in it, he writes: ?? These convent schools will bring out children who look like Indians but are English by the brain and they don't know anything about their country. They won't know anything about their culture, they won't have any idea about their traditions, they will not know their idioms, when such children are there in this country, even if the British go away, English will not leave this country. ?? The truth of the letter written at that time is visible in this country even today. See the misery created by this act. We feel inferior to ourselves who are ashamed to speak the highs of our own culture.
A society that is cut off from its mother tongue never gets good and this was Macaulay’s strategy! In which almost they have conquered because today's youth knows more about Europe than India. Considers Indian culture not so cool, but imitates western countries. Our tradition is a spiritual science, spirituality is a richer science than the science we all know today.(0) (0)
