Very ancients of this land, India, were past masters of all art forms that are folk. Folk literature also called folklore or oral tradition is that the lore (traditional knowledge and beliefs) of cultures having no written communication. In the new National Education Policy-2020 several important guidelines to preserve the tradition of multilingualism and folk wisdom have been given. Its background is based on folk Literature. In the context of globalisation, and changes to work patterns it is failing to redevelop vocational education resources to industries.

Skill is the bridge between job and workforce.
