Education System in Modern India

The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards

It was once said that teaching is one of the most noble professions, teachers have ever since been given a different status in the society..... nothing has changed over the years.. teachers are still in a different strata of society and they are still respected beyond words.... but........

Education has ruined everything... I am sure that you have heard the famous quoatation "I am a learned, but education ruined me".. and why not... see around you and you would see institutes opening up.. being affilated to various xyz universities and doing buisness on the pretext of giving you a degree...!!!

Even the famous insitutes - the regional institutes have become a place where politics has become a way of life, where you have to pay special visits to your profs to pass in your papers.. so where does this one lead to???

Two years back when I was trying to get myself admitted into an engineering college... the institutes directly asked for so much of money that I could have easily fainted..(thank God.. I din't faint or even get into engineering)... I realised that this is the way admissions have been going on.... where non-deserving students pay up on the management seats and fill up seats for the deserving candidates...!!!

And to top it all, once you get into the college, you realise that there is lot more trouble coming your way - with the seniors stripping you naked for the fun of ragging you and the mess food stinks.. and the bathrooms overflow.

The proffesors stink.. and hardly care if you have understood any thing all.. apart from this you have what is known as the college politics...student union.. demands which are never met.. strikes which cut down the semesters.. the life sure is hectic...

But in the midst of it all where did the learning part go??? where is that art of teaching where apart from the books.. moral values were also instilled in the kids.. where is the quality education that we have heard about from our parents and grandparents???

Its down there somewhere... but archived in the liberary shelves.. where no one wants to go....!!!! Our nation is being handed over to us in bits every ear.. and we dont know what to do.. coz.. we just care about the degree in our hands....

If this is happening to us now.. imagine paying a donation of millions for just getting a degree for a kid... imagination quotient getting zero.. mechanical life getting the 100 % commitment....!!!

I am sure that there would be a time when you would stand in a line on a counter window.. and get your degree custom made to your needs...!!!
