Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], October 16 (ANI): Ahead of the launch of the MBBS Hindi course book in Madhya Pradesh, state medical education minister Vishwas Sarang on Sunday said that the move will bring a big change in the advancement of education in Hindi medium.
Speaking to ANI, Sarang said, "It is a big day. For the first time in the country, medical education in Hindi will begin in Madhya Pradesh. Home Minister Amit Shah and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will launch the Hindi versions of textbooks of all three subjects of the first year - Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry today."
"This is a matter of joy for me. It now becomes clear that if medical education is possible in Hindi, any course is possible in Hindi. This will bring a major change in the lives of youth, especially those from Hindi backgrounds," he added.
The Minister said that it is an emotional moment to start an MBBS course in Hindi.
"My father was also a Hindi litterateur, he also had a dream of it, today, I am starting it with his blessings. After the completion of 75 years of independence, no greater work could have been done than this. English is a symbol of slavery, Hindi was lagging behind somewhere," Sarang added.
In a first-of-its-kind move, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will launch the MBBS Hindi course book at Lal Parade ground in Bhopal today.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will also be present on the occasion.
Madhya Pradesh is the first state to start the MBBS course in the Hindi language in the country. Initially, three subjects have been selected to be studied in Hindi which includes Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry.
A team of 97 experts have been working on the preparation of books for the last 232 days at Gandhi Medical College, Bhopal. They have been translating the book from English to Hindi.
State medical education minister Vishwas Sarang is continuously reviewing the work.
On Saturday Sarang said, "We are trying our best to promote Hindi, under which we translate courses in Hindi. We have introduced three subjects in the first phase. The translation of second-year courses is going on. The Hindi books will be available in the college which will be beneficial to the students."
"Various countries like Germany, Russia, China, France and other colleges teach in their regional languages. Therefore, we have also started and it is the first experiment in the last 75 years," he said.
Sarang also explained about the Mandaar- the place where the work of translation is going on. He said that as the god churned Mandarachal (Mandar mountain) during 'Samundra Manthan', similarly, the team of 97 doctors had academic brainstorming in Mandar (War room), following which it is named Mandar.
"It was not an easy task but we prepared it in very easy language. We have prepared it so that it will be helpful in the studies of the students," an expert involved in the translation told ANI.
The expert further said the new edition of Medical Biochemistry contains the application of some new chapters which include Sodium, Potassium, Water Homeostasis, Biochemistry Techniques, Radiation, Radioisotopes and Environmental Pollutants and Toxins.
Besides, Several new line diagrams, tables and text boxes have been added to make information more memorable.
Similarly in the Anatomy edition, new chapters of surface anatomy have been added in both abdomen and lower limb sections. New line diagrams, CT's and MRI's diagram tables and flow charts are added to increase the retention of knowledge. (ANI)
