EDUCATION & LITERACY The land of Gurukuls, Ashrams and Universities like Nalanda and Pataliputra has come to such a pass that as per world reports on education in schools, we are amongst the bottom two or three countries as regards Mathematics and reading standards. We need to introspect as after Independence, we laid more stress on literacy than education. Six decades ago, attaining minimum literacy levels was essential but along the way our goal should have been restructured and redefined. With a single minded focus on literacy we sacrificed quality for quantity. Whatever progress India has achieved is because of efforts and brilliance of 20% of the population who can be called islands of excellence. Quality and excellence has to spread all across the length and breadth of the country touching every sector of society. The benchmark has to be raised and soon. Complacency, corruption, Chalta-Hai attitude and resigning to one’s fate has to stop. We have to infuse nationalistic spirit and a strong civic sense coupled with responsibility.
Education today needs to combine high values with firm discipline, yet retain an all pervading air of openness and approachability to allow freedom to the youth to develop unhindered and turning them into achievers who can be called world citizens. We understand that today’s youth are to be the agents of change and progress – the thinkers, planners and leaders of society, therefore the need of the hour is to equip them with life skills that enable them to be worthy world citizens of tomorrow. In this era of globalization, contemporary education has to combine today’s teaching to meet tomorrow’s needs. Today, we have moved ahead from an information seeking to a knowledge based society that requires life long learning coupled with an inquisitive, mind. Every child is precious and deserves to get the best opportunities.
At the same time - hard work, perseverance and a sense of responsibility is expected. Rights come with responsibilities. The world is surging forward and change is happening faster as compared to earlier decades or centuries. Flow of knowledge and growth of technology has changed conventional teaching-learning styles and the way we work. You need to acquire knowledge as fast as you can and as much as you can. In other words – Work Smart. Success depends upon the ability to take right decisions, find solutions, show leadership in accepting challenges and emotional stability. Environmental degradation, pollution, population, violence – everything has multiplied manifold, thus putting a great onus of responsibility on each one of us to care for our Earth as well as learn to live together in a world free from violence, a world of harmony and peace. There has to be a complete paradigm shift with all stakeholders putting their heads together to find solutions that would lead to qualitative personal and National growth.
