Abstract

The article looks at Life Education in general and ClearLight Life Education in particular as a tool to inculcate character-building in learners in schools and colleges on duty-first lines. Navdeep Eduhub's ClearLight Life Education uses the individual-based approach to inculcate positivity in individuals using the formula:'change yourself positively and you can change the world.'Abandoning the language of do's and don'ts,ClearLight addresses the minds of learners using the modern idiom to explain universal principles of life and help them apply their related values in life. This makes learners fulfill their duties, and pragmatically receive their rights in return using the principle of reciprocity, unilaterally. The article concludes that Life Education, if followed sincerely can ensure character-building in individuals so one is able to learn (a) to think positively, (b) to cultivate positive personalities, (c) to form positive connections with others in society (d) towards societal progress. And in making our fellow Indians an enlightened, aware and dutiful people, Life Education can help educational institutions lay the foundation of nation- building and global citizenship.
