Dear Indian system of education,
It's that time of the year again. Final exams- Boards for many, are in the offing. So are other entrance exams. Hope you're taking measures against paper leaks this year? Because honestly, we don't want the same mess that happened last year.
BUT, Ever wondered why frauds and leaks happen?
Maybe because everyone has made exams such a big deal.If one fails in exams, one fails in life, no?
NO.Get that, maybe?
And what about that stream - system?
*Hearing a son or daughter say they’re majoring in the liberal arts has never made more parents’ hearts sink into their stomachs.*
Because as per the common beliefs, if one gets good marks, then he/ she can become a doctor or an engineer, otherwise not?
As if, these two are the only professions left in this world for the so-called "intelligentsia". Oh, I quite forgot about the civil services.
•Guess you gotta stop judging our capabilities on the basis of our marksheets, because CEOs of some of the world's most successful companies - Richard Plepler (HBO), Susan Wojcicki (YouTube) and many more, have majored in liberal arts.
And though you're quite aware, I'd like to bring this to your knowledge- in this country, one student commits suicide every 55 minutes. Yet, depression is conveniently ignored.
So dear indian system of education, guess it's time to start producing well behaved humans, and not the book gobblers? Because honestly, that is what's gonna matter when we grow up.
Start giving us the courage to follow our passions. Teach moral ethics - something that is missing in most of today's youth.
Stop giving exams such a high priority, because we miss our sleep. And please, start teaching us what we are interested in knowing. Practical knowledge, general knowledge. Because,
No one has ever asked our parents the formulae of algebra!
Someone who'd prefer describing rainbows in poetries, rather that studying about TOTAL INTERNAL REFLECTIONS. .
