Bollywood Film-maker Subhash Ghai has suggested to the Union HRD ministry to design school curriculum in such a way that it nurtures artistic skill and creativity.

Ghai visited the HRD ministry and met Smriti Irani today and gave his suggestions to officials.

“We feel our education should be skill based and not memory based. For children artistic skill is very important even if they become scientists or engineers,” he told reporters emerging from the meeting.

He said that while schools curriculum in western countries are designed in such a way, it is not so in India.

Ghai said that he hoped that the government which is drafting a New Education Policy, will consider his suggestions.
