Teaching beyond the academic syllabus as a part of its summer camp Subhapradam, has been the aim of Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam. The programme, which began on Sunday, will include seven days of discourse on moral, human and ethical values as laid down in Hindu scriptures.

“No school teaches ethical values. Even parents do not have the time to inculcate humane values in their children. We hope to make the students aware of their tradition and religious practices at this summer camp,” said K.Venkat Reddy, former secretary of Hindu Dhrama Prachara Parishad of TTD.

The camp will be conducted at 35 centres across 23 districts of the state. In Hyderabad, of the four centres, three have been earmarked for girls _ at Hasthinapur, Uppal and Kukatpally. The centre for imparting moral and ethical values to boys is located at Narayanaguda.

“Each centre will accommodate around 200 students and we are expecting to train nearly 16,000 students across the state. The students will also receive books which will help them enrich their knowledge of the code of ethics. It is a way of making the teachings of scriptures and mythology accessible to the young minds,” Venkat Reddy explained.

The students will get travel allowance to attend the residential programme. TTD chairman K Bapiraju was also present at the ceremony.
