In India, an intelligent person is the one who has the highest marks. Think for a minute is it right to judge a person by their marks. Let me tell you a story. A police officer went on a road trip with their family, well he is an officer he must be well studied had great marks in his police exam. On a road trip, they saw a big beautiful tree full of Taylor bird’s nests. The officer's son said that he wanted a bird’s nest to decorate his room. The officer tried to get, but it was out of his reach.
There was a village boy who didn't have a formal education. The officer asked the village boy can you climb the tree and bring a nest. The boy replied “no I can't”, and then the officer thought the boy would do it for some money and offered the boy some money. The boy got angry replied it is a home of a bird how can you take away from it. Now think who is better educated the boy or the officer? Who can analyze the environment better?
The people have forgotten that some things are not thought at schools, they should be understood. Everyone is different, modern science says that no person’s brains are identical. Then why does the society wants everyone to be same and think same? And expects everyone to study the entire subject and pass in all. People want a rabbit to win a swimming race and a fish to win a running race. Rabbit and fish are good at their own fields. Why compare them by their marks?
Schools should try to motivate the student to learn new things and make them creative. But they feed them the syllabus and punish for their mistakes, they make them think that mistake and failing is a crime, because of that fear of failing they don't try new things. Now schools are manufacturing human machines. We have forgotten that the best nature human is thinking and being creative. the last question" WHEN IS OUR EDUCATION GOING GET UPDATED?” Next article we will discuss how to change and how to get disinfected by this uncreative education system and lead towards the true success and achieve dreams
