In a ceremonial commencement at Katra railway station, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha of Jammu and Kashmir inaugurated the Gyanodaya Express.
This special train is set to embark on a transformative journey, transporting 700 female students from diverse universities within the Union Territory as they traverse through different states for educational endeavors.
In a post on X, J-K LG Sinha said, “Flagged off Gyanodaya Express, College on Wheels, the first-of-its-kind mobile educational endeavour in Jammu Kashmir, aiming to empower approximately 700 girl students from Universities of the Union Territory.”
Terming it an educational pilgrimage for the students, LG Sinha said,” The journey endeavours to dissolve boundaries of classrooms, and streams and evolve education by providing immersive, collaborative, and project-based learning experiences.”
Gyanodaya Express also known as College on Wheels is inspired by the life of Mahatma Gandhi, when he undertook an epic tour of the country by train, interacted with people from all walks of life and awakened society with universal and eternal values of Satya and Ahimsa, Truth and Non-Violence.
The journey of students along with mentors to centres of excellence such as the Indian Navy, ISRO, and Sabarmati Ashram will provide them with new ideas, insight and hands-on knowledge for new research, an official statement said. (ANI)
