Pune organization creates Marathi textbooks to help learn engineering, medicine

Pune-based group of researchers and publishers, Samartha Marathi, in collaboration with Dnyanbhasha Publishers, has released a class 11th physics textbook in Marathi for students who are more comfortable with Marathi, reports the Times of India. Soon, they plan to bring out other textbooks for 11th and 12th. Later, they hope to do the same for textbooks required in engineering and medical degree courses.

Excerpts:

Last year, nearly 1,200 students appeared for the science exam in Marathi, this year, more than 2,500 students opted to write their exams in Marathi. “In other states, students can take higher education in their respective regional languages, but in our state, there is no facility as of now. Grasping a subject becomes easier if the students are taught it in their regional languages,” [Anil] Gore [founder of Dnyanbhasha Publications] said.

“Some colleges in Marathwada region and Nagpur are making efforts to start professional courses in Marathi language. Our work will help in promoting the cause further. A step at ministry level should be taken to start such courses in all universities of the state.”
