Delhi University (DU) will start a special train ‘Gyanodaya Express’ to take its students on an Educational Journey to 5 selected destinations across India. The Educational Train Journey will start on July 8, 2012 from Delhi and will witness 1000 National cadet Corps and National Service Scheme (NSS) girls.

 This will be the first batch of 1000 girls to experience the 12-day expedition of Gyanodaya Express and get an insight of the rich cultural heritage of India.

Ahmedabad will be the first stop where girls will visit Akshardham Temple, Gujrat Vidyapeeth and Sabarmati Ashram. After a stay of 36 hours in Ahmedabad, batch will start for Mumbai and then to Madgaon in Goa. Students will then go to Indian Space Research Organisation and Science Museum based in Bangalore followed by Mysore. Wardha/Nagpur will be the last destination.

Sources from DU revealed that this educational train journey will be a great experience for all students.

The students will get to calculate the train’s speed without using speedometer; will learn about railway engineering, experience the lives of common people while passing through railway platforms in various regions, get to know the countryside while crossing different states.  Students will also learn the history of India and Gandhian principles.

The students are required to participate in an orientation program before departing and they will be given study materials having information on what students will be required to do before and after the journey. The students will have to go through the books provided to them and study the food habits compartment design of the train and other sociological features of people they come across on railway platforms and places they visit. Students will also be required to study other important aspects such as agriculture, language, ethnicity and literature of people of various regions visited. Students will have to do a project after completing the journey.
