The most effective strategy for building societal harmony and cohesion is education. India's national goals include internalizing secularism, supporting democracy, ensuring equality, pursuing national unity, revitalizing fraternity, and delivering social justice and liberty. The educational system must consider human needs, viewpoints, and desires. It must raise awareness of and respect for human rights and human values. The essential obligations outlined in Article 51(A) of the Constitution must be internalized by every child. The 42nd Amendment incorporated compassion, scientific temper, humanism, abjuring violence, and other fundamental duties into the Indian Constitution, including India's unity and integrity, harmony, spirit of common brotherhood, preservation of our composite culture's rich cultural heritage, compassion, scientific temper, humanism, and abjuring violence. These also highlight the need to improve and develop. In this paper an attempt is made to overview the educational initiatives taken for propagation of value education in Indian educational curriculum.
