India is caught between "scams and slums" and needed spiritual knowledge to overcome the situation, Art of Living guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said here.
"India now essentially needs spiritual knowledge as it is caught between scams and slums," Ravi Shankar said after meeting Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik here.
The spiritual guru said that during his meeting with the chief minister he had expressed keenness to be involved in rural development activities in the state.
"We plan to set up an agriculture college at Kalahandi which will help introduction of multi-crop system in the valley of river Indravati," he said.
The students of the proposed college could also research medicinal herbs.
