 “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” – James Madison 

The 21st Century has been acknowledged worldwide as the ‘Knowledge Century’. Every nation now finds itself operating in an increasingly competitive and globalised international environment where the information infrastructure, research and innovation systems, education and lifelong learning, and regulatory frameworks are crucial variables. In the words of Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India, “The time has come to create a second wave of institution building, and of excellence, in the fields of education, research and capability building so that we are better prepared for the 21st Century.” Since India’s independence, there has been a persistent demand on behalf of the country’s intellectuals, expressed in different professional philosophical and non-philosophical forums, to re-examine both ancient and modern philosophical systems so as to evaluate them and derive from them new directives for today’s changing conditions. There is a definite impetus towards an independent Indian philosophical identity. There is a sense of an urgent need, on different levels, to reinforce research and philosophy studies in India. 

We feel that Philosophy is an open-ended, pioneering discipline, forever opening up new areas of study and new methods of inquiry. Philosophy affects Social Sciences and Humanities since many hundred years. Cultivate on of ethical, moral, cultural and spiritual ideas by studying philosophy at various levels of education can change the mindset of the people. Philosophy is a growing phenomenon, a developing sphere. Each step in the walk of human existence adds new grains to the development of philosophy. We have used the term Positive Philosophy for this. Our object is to achieve an intellectual detachment from all philosophical systems, and not to solve specific philosophical problems, but to become sensitively aware of what it is we do when we philosophize. An Interdisciplinary Study is a field of study that crosses traditional boundaries between academic disciplines or schools of thought, as new needs and professions have emerged .Originally the term interdisciplinary is applied within education and training pedagogies to describe studies that use methods and insights of several established disciplines or traditional fields of study. 

In order to reach the goal of creating a knowledge society, the majority of the people of India must be helped to overcome ‘information poverty.’ The knowledge deprived have to be given access to relevant and timely information and knowledge to address the roles they should play in the developmental process. The society is fully dedicated in the abovesaid initiatives and working towards better performance. 

“If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.” – Margaret Fuller
