Contrary to the reports floating since morning about Indian Institute of Technology-Banaras Hindu University offering a 3-month-long crash course in becoming ‘Aadarsh Bahu’, the institute has come forward saying that it does not offer any such course or training.
In a statement, the institute has said they do not offer any course/training programme entitled “Daughter’s Pride – Beti Meri Abhiman” or an “Adarsh Bahu”.
The Young Skilled India is a private start-up which is allegedly offering the contentious crash course. IIT-BHU said that it does not have any relation to the training programme offered by the private body.
Banaras Hindu University has decided to start a unique course for its female students of IIT department. The course is aimed at training girls to become an ‘Adarsh Bahu’ (ideal daughter-in-law). The three months long course will help to bring self-confidence and the socialisation of the female students. The training has already started from September 3.
Earlier it was reported that Young Skilled India’s CEO Niraj Srivastava, this course is an initiative seeing the increasing problems in the society. This initiative has been started in collaboration with a private institution called “Daughters Pride- Beti Mera Abhiman”. The course is named as “Beti Mera Abhiman” and the motive is to bring self-confidence, and develop interpersonal skills, problem solving skills, stress handling skills, marriage skills, computer skills and fashion skills among girl students.
Srivastava believes that this is an exclusive course in itself and can become an example for society. Professional skills trainer, Fashion designer and counsellor will be will play an important role in the while training. The department will soon start selecting girls for the three months long course.
