Sophia, Year 03, Issue 02 (November, 2014)

Dear Readers
World Philosophy Day was proclaimed by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific
and Cultural Organization) to be celebrated in every third Thursday of November. It was
first celebrated on 21 November 2002. It is celebrated to honor the philosophical
reflections and works of philosophy by people around the world. Philosophy is the stepping
stone for innovations and creative ideas. It has been the foundation of progress through
many centuries, across cultures. On this day people get together to exchange problems,
ideas and solutions to make this world a better place to live. In these strife-ridden times,
philosophy is the only hope towards world peace. It brings democracy, justice, human
rights and equality into the forefront. Reflection of world issues and solutions to problems
of the humanity are the focal point of philosophical analysis.
This year World Philosophy Day is being celebrated on November 20, 2014. The
Department of Philosophy, P.G. Govt. College for Girls, Sector-11, Chandigarh and the
Centre for Positive Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies (CPPIS), Pehowa
(Kurukshetra) jointly celebrate it via a student program with the theme Youth and Indian
Education System. In the present issue of the Sophia we included some essays of the
students which were submitted for the said programme. Hope this issue will be useful for
our readers too.

ANATOMY OF INDIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM


Sukanya Rai, Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Technology, Rohini, New Delhi
Education is a companion which no misery can depress, no crime can destroy, no despotism can
enslave. Home a friend, abroad an introduction, society an ornament. Without it what is man? A
splendid slave, reasoning savage. -Joseph Addison
Education is today the most important gift we can give to our children. The most important factor
which gauges any countrys future success is its talent pool of young and talented people. The fact
that Indian students have ranked a lowly 72nd in the Global Education Survey conducted by PISA
(Programme for International Student Assessment) doesnt show much of promise in our students.
Part of the skills gap problem is that only a small percentage of India's youth pursue higher
education. Even a more fundamental level of education is proving difficult with nearly 40 per cent
of people over the age of 15 being illiterate (Source: The Economist, "A Survey of Business in India";
June 2006.)
Hence, we see that it is becoming more and more difficult to create a robust and continuous
pipeline of talent. So it is, beyond doubt, that our present system of education is not up to the world
standards and we need to make serious efforts to improve this situation in the future.
India has always had a wonderful tradition of education and learning from the beginning of time;
Gurukul System of education was highly effective. According to the ancient Indian theory of
education, the training of the mind and the process of thinking are essential for the acquisition of
knowledge. Ancient Education System in India had three simple processes
1) Shravana : It means to listen to the words of wisdom which the teacher spoke.
2) Manana : It implies that the student needs to interpret the meaning of the lessons imparted by
the teacher so that they may be understood fully, reflecting upon what has been heard (shravana).
3) Niddhyaasana : It was believed that knowledge must result in realization and not merely a
collection of facts.

It is no doubt that our ancient education system was a great success, but unfortunately today we
are in a very poor condition. The teacher student interaction has been limited to classrooms and the
critical bond of growth has been broken. The respect for the guru has been lost. Secondly, our
students have actually forgotten to think critically leading us to a serious problem of lack of
innovative and creative minds. Thirdly, the present education system just focuses on factual
learning rather than practical learning. There is no working system wherein a student can practice
what he is being taught or put his own ideas to work.
What do we need to change about the Indian Education System?
Education has been a problem in our country and lack of it has been blamed for all sorts of evil for
hundreds of years. Since colonial times, few things have changed. We have established IITs, IIMs,
law schools and other institutions of excellence; students now routinely score 90% marks so that
even students with 90+ percentage find it difficult to get into the colleges of their choice; but we do
more of the same old stuff.
Rote learning still plagues our system, students study only to score marks in exams. The colonial
masters introduced education systems in India to create clerks and civil servants, and we have not
deviated much from that pattern till today. Creating a few more schools or allowing hundreds of
colleges and private universities to mushroom is not going to solve the crisis of education in India.
And a crisis it is we are in a country where people are spending their parents life savings and
borrowed money on education and even then not getting standard education, and struggling to
find employment of their choice. In this country, millions of students are victim of an unrealistic,
pointless, mindless rat race. The mind numbing competition and rote learning do not only crush the
creativity and originality of millions of Indian students every year; it also drives brilliant students to
commit suicide.
We also live in a country where the people see education as the means of climbing the social and
economic ladder. If the education system is failing then it is certainly not due to lack of demand
for good education, or because a market for education does not exist. Education system in India is
failing because of more intrinsic reasons. There are systemic faults that do not let our demand for
good education translate into a great marketplace with excellent education services. What should
change in Indian education system? What needs to be fixed at the earliest?
Focus on skill based education & Re-define the purpose of the education system
Give a man a fish and you feed him one day, teach him how to catch fishes and you feed him for a
lifetime. I believe that if you teach a man a skill, you enable him for a lifetime. Knowledge is
largely forgotten after the semester exam is over. Still the best crammers are rewarded by the
system. Our education system today encourages mediocrity in students, in teachers, throughout
the system. Hard work is always tough; the path to excellence is fraught with difficulties. Mediocrity
is comfortable. Our education system will remain as it is until we make it clear that it is not ok to be
mediocre. If we want excellence, mediocrity cannot be tolerated. The goal of our new education
system should be to create entrepreneurs, innovators, artists, scientists, thinkers and writers who
4|Page

http://philgcg11chd.webs.com

Sophia, Year 03, Issue 02 (November, 2014)


can establish the foundation of knowledge based economy rather than becoming largest call
centres.
Reward creativity, original thinking, research and innovation & Get smarter people to teach
The biggest flaw in our education system is perhaps that it incentivizes memorizing above
originality.Teaching jobs are until today widely regarded as safe, well-paying, risk-free and
low-pressure jobs. We need leaders, entrepreneurs in teaching positions, not salaried people trying
to hold on to their mantle.
Implement massive technology infrastructure for education and Allow private capital in
education
Instead of focussing on outdated models of brick and mortar colleges and universities, now that we
have computers and internet, it makes sense to invest in technological infrastructure that will make
access to knowledge easier than ever if it has to teach all of its huge population, the majority of
which is located in remote villages.
Personalize education one size does not fit all
Indian education system is built on the presumption that if something is good for one kid, it is good
for all kids. Decentralization of education is needed and govt dont need to obsessively what would
be the syllabus and what will be the method of instruction.
Make reservation irrelevant and promote mass education
We have reservation in education today because education is not available universally. Education
has to be rationed. There is no reservation in online education because it scales. Today top
universities worldwide are taking various courses online, and today you can easily attend a live
class taught by a top professor of Harvard University online if you want, no matter which country is
belong to. This is the future, this is the easy way to beat reservation and make it inconsequential.
We should also follow the notion- EACH ONE, TEACH TEN.
Role of Youth
Demographically, the India of today is at its youngest best with nearly 78% of population less than
40 years old. The entire world is eyeing India as a source of technical manpower. They are looking
at our youth as a source of talents at low costs for their future super profits. If Indian youth make
up their mind and work in close unity with working class people, they can hold the political power
in their hands. Indian youth has the power to make our country from developing nation to a
developed nation.
Youth is like a fire
It crept forward.

A Spark at first
Growing into a flame
The brightening into a Blaze.
So, we need to understand that our education system needs a revamp and we have to be the leaders
of this change. We have to imbibe the seed of creative and analytical thinking into our children, so
that they can be successful in their future endeavours. Let us build a beautiful tomorrow by starting
today. The time is ripe for us all now to reboot the India education system by various programmes,
joint initiatives and other measure by individuals, the government, industry and academia. Such
activities have the potential to play an important part in plugging the talent gap in the years to
come. Training individuals for the jobs of the future and allowing them to visualise what it possible
today will not only make a difference in their lives but will enrich our communities now and for
years to come.

YOUTH AND INDIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM


B.Ram Prasad
M.B.B.S., Third Year, Katuri Medical College, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh (India).
"Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be
key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society's margins, all of us will
be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in
the lives of their societies." - Kofi Annan
Introduction
Every society is made by people of different classes, values and ages, and everyone has to play an
important, essential and crucial role in the society of today and of future. And it is the duty of every
member of society to participate to strengthen the society. And every society is like a bouquet of
flowers where each flower participate to make the bouquet wonderful, and each flower has a
different colour, smell and size but all together make the bouquet more brighter, attractive and
beautiful.
Indian Youth and Education System
Young people are part of the bouquet of a society, but their role is more important than others.
They are integral and essential part of a society and a society is incomplete without young blood.
Therefore it is said: Todays youths are the force, hope and leaders of tomorrow, because they are
the future of society, country and community.
Young people are the driving force of change and can encourage governments to declare their
priorities. Young people have important responsibilities towards their country. It is important to
learn from the past and to live with a hope for a better future, a future that is appropriate for our
children and future generations.

The future generation has a duty to be honest, genuine, of good values and to work day and night
for the betterment of the society and the country. Young people have a duty to use their skills,
strength, creativity and imaginations to serve the country and the nation in the best possible
manner. These are the young people who can make the difference, because they are the backbone of
a nation and can build a bright future for society based on values and courageous behaviour.
India being the youngest nation of the world, this demographic dividend has raised high
expectations in regard to the youths meaningful participation in socio-political process;
particularly civic engagement.
Todays youth are some intelligent, pragmatic and adept at career building. Thanks to globalization
and the information revolution. However the Indian youth as experience suggests has not been able
to contribute to the nation building considerably and if at all these were any attempts they were
never commensurate with their enormous size and the deep diversity of the Indian society. It was
also too little to impact a society as large as India.
The demographic dividend of youth with diverse needs and almost total absence of educational and
skill development opportunities for them makes the youth education a most significant challenge at
the present time. Youth is overburdened by a education system which is not much meaningful for
them.
The present education system does not align with the holistic approach towards understanding
young peoples lives. What is needed is an approach focusing on interest based learning within
context and enhancing opportunities enabling them to construct knowledge and develop skills,
thereby improving the quality of life.
To encourage young people to stay in schools, they should have flexible schedules, strive to
eliminate gender bias and be relevant to young peoples daily lives, especially for the economically
disadvantaged group who must combine economic activity with education.
Education programmes should be so designed as to provide a second chance to those young people
who have missed this opportunity and could not complete their education earlier, due to some
unforeseen circumstances. This would help the youth to realize their full potential.
Life-Skills and Education
As the young people step into the threshold of the external world, they are increasingly influenced
by their peers and by adults other than their parents. They begin to explore and experiment
intellectually, ingeniously and socially through various activities. To support them in this sensitive
and tender stage, they need to develop life skills skills in negotiation, conflict resolution, critical
thinking, decision making and communication. This would help them develop self-esteem,
self-confidence, assertiveness, ability to work in teams and resolve conflicts in a rational manner.
Life skills programme should be an integral part of the education system in order to transmit the
accumulated resources of our cultural heritage to each new generation.

When young people work, they not only generate income but also develop their skills, increase
knowledge, build self-esteem and confidence and garner an optimistic outlook of what their future
might hold.
The launching of livelihood programmes would help the youth to develop an array of skills
including literacy and numeracy, technical, entrepreneurial, practical, social, managerial and
strategic skills.
It is precisely at this stage when vocational maturity undergoes greater development and progress
and it becomes more necessary since the students must engage in various academic and vocational
decision-making processes which have important repercussions for the future.
In advance of education sector reform, managing life skills programming can be a challenge. It may
create friction with teachers and students, who are already under pressure from a packed
curriculum and an exam-based assessment system.
In response, some countries have made life skills an examinable subject in order to signal its
importance. Unfortunately, this may result in life skills becoming just another knowledge-based
subject that students are required to memorize.
In addition, life skills cannot be effectively assessed by written exams. There are also education
sector cultural issues which can make teaching life skills unattractive.
Building acceptance of life skills programming :
1. Creating a supportive environment for the practice of life skills
2. Advocating and orienting politicians, policy makers, and societal leaders
3. Building support in communities and schools for life skills programming
Life skills programming can play a role in nudging societies towards social inclusion and equality,
creating a more beneficial teacher-student relationship, and promoting a public discourse on issues
previously considered taboo. For this reason, deliberate efforts are required to build awareness and
acceptance through advocacy and social mobilization.
Creating a supportive environment for the practice of life skills:
Children and adolescents are more likely to make good decisions if they can experience control over
their lives; and gain a sense of self-respect and recognition from others, including teachers and
parents. However, a lack of future prospects, little family support, low community status, and
limited opportunities to play a role in community decisions, all serve to undermine life skills
programming.
To increase the likelihood of success, programmes need to create opportunities to practice life skills
outside the classroom; question youth stereotypes; and, build support for the right to

self-determination. Simply put, unless schools, families and communities are prepared to allow
children and adolescents to play an active role in the decisions affecting them, life skills will remain
confined to the classroom.
Building support in communities and schools for life skills programming
As with advocacy activities for decision makers, there is a need to build support for life skills based
education among communities, schools, and families, through mobilization activities.
There is also a need to confront complacency and denial about the risks facing children and
adolescents, to build awareness of the benefits of life skills, and to reject the notion that it is a
foreign concept intent on undermining traditional values.
While it must be acknowledged that families are the true and best providers of life skills, it must be
accepted that in a rapidly changing world, there are risks (i.e. drugs, HIV/AIDS, trafficking, etc)
which many parents may be unaware of or unprepared for. It also needs to be accepted that most
families, in most cultures, can be found wanting when it comes to providing information to their
children on topics considered sensitive or taboo.
Orienting parents, local officials (i.e. school principals, district education officers, etc.), religious
leaders, and teachers (not teaching life skills) is something that many interventions identified as
important for the creation of the necessary programming space.
This includes preparing people for the subversive nature of life skills-based education. Indias
Adolescent Education Programme provides programme orientations to parents and communities.
Many stakeholders spoke of the value of teaching life skills to parents.
Youth has all the potential. Let us all provide rational education support to them so that they keep
on growing in their knowledge and understanding and keep making a difference to the nation and
to the world. Then they should be fully empowered to lead India into the future.
Young people should focus on their studies, because education is the best tool to success and for the
future of our country. They should devote sufficient time to their studies. Physical education and
sport is also important, and young people should play regularly, as health is also important for the
progress. If our youths will be healthy, they can do more work for the country.
Our youths are not less than the youths of other countries and are very capable and have various
opportunities. They have the skill, behaviour, attitude, health, knowledge and ability to make the
future of the country very shining.
Conclusion
I believe that the life and success of nations and their bright future lies in the hands of the youth
generation of today. And if young people of today have strong values, the best education, good
health, right priorities and full sincerity, then we can say that the future is bright. And if,
10 | P a g e

unfortunately, todays youths have not prepare themselves enough, then we cannot say that the
future will be brighter than today. Because, strong building always has a strong foundation.
Nelson Mandela says, Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the
world. In my view, education can make a man honest or corrupt, slave or free (to his habits),
explorer, inventor or criticizer, a Great support or burden for all, Successful or unsuccessful, and
humane or cruel. Any of these attributes can be inculcated (or corrected) in a person by his
education.

NATION RENOVATION
Kanak Balani , B.Tech (IInd Year), University Institute of Engineering and Technology (UIET),
C.S.J.M.University, Kanpur
Nations are built by the imagination and untiring enthusiastic efforts of the generations. It is
impossible not to be astonished by our nation India also known as our Motherland. It is known to
be our Motherland as it presents itself in a unique panacea which hence is a formulation of creative
bursts of cultures, religion, races and tongues. As Shashi Tharoor said, In India we celebrate the
commonality of differences; we are a land of belonging rather than of blood. No British rule or
invasion of marauders could set the spirit of our nation apart. Here, it is known to have a process in
which one generation transfers the fruits of its toil to another and this has been continuing since
ages. This process tends to go on and nation climbs the steps of glory and gains higher strength
with each coming generation along with its downsides as everything comes with Terms &
Conditions (T&C) as stated on offers. India has the spirit and enthusiasm that Ruskin Bond says ,
and when all the wars are over, a butterfly will still be beautiful.
Why is India still a developing country and why not a developed country ? A question who's answer
is the two most important factors that make up this nation; Youth and Indian Education System.
These factors are glorifying deep having some flaws as well as it is known that no system is perfect.
Youth, the center and the most important part of the human race. Talents are discovered through
them. They are who explore everything which interests them. They can simply be defined to be
ambitious with their careers. There is much competition known out as they are trying their level
best by cracking entrance examinations of various fields like technology, arts etc. Everyone wants
to have a successful career with good packages. According to them, easy things are the most
likeable of all as they don't consume much of hard work like having canned food, conveyance, lifts
etc. in short machines for every work they do. They just spend energy on the ways they can make
money through. They are a little more concerned about surroundings. They always try to gain
quality experiences by taking part in various competitions. Our youth wishes to be self-worth and
they speak for their rights; they discuss over conflicting values and try to change them for
everyone's good. According to them, they feel the accountability and pride that comes with mastery.
They tend to enjoy life by every possible means and success is the only step for them. They are
more educated and have ethical values. As Ashley Montagu says, It is the mark of the cultured man
12 | P a g e

that he is aware of the fact that equality is an ethical and not a biological principle. Seeing all well
doesn't make this generation; The youth perfect. There are many flaws existing too. Today's youth
is not at all tough; parents have bred weaklings and complainers as they are physically and
mentally not very strong. They never hesitate to complain about how tough they have it and never
consider themselves responsible for their mistakes. They need counselling to get over their
emotional baggage. The mistake they've still been committing is to be held responsible on the name
of the older generation, thinking that they have wasted much resources so that they can even do so.
Now what's done will be complained by the future generation and the story will continue always.
If I were asked under what sky has human mind has fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has
most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life and has found solutions, I should point to
India, said Max Mueller. Indian Education System known to be the mist developed system. India
has over 650 UGC approved universities and India have approximately 13 lakh schools. Education is
an important and integral part of our society which strongly helps in formulating our nation. Indian
Education System know how to fan sparks of interest into flames. It is a stumbling block towards its
objective of forming a national front as it has gone through a makeover through ages; Ecosystem
has been developing due to it. Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The
important thing is not to stop questioning as Education makes the value of a man are some words
said wisely. The youth voice their aspirations through this. Franz Kafka said, Don't bend; don't
water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't try to edit your own soul according to the fashion.
Rather follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly. While our education system has its
upsides, there are downsides as well as it is known all the glitters is not gold. National
Infrastructure needs to strengthen for talents to rise. Some universities just seek the way of
corruption not the quality of education. Minority classes are given much priority while admissions.
In earlier times, famous educated people like Mahatma Gandhi, Edison etc. were people of
determination. Gandhiji became a leader with compassion and determination par excellence.
Scientists had to work hard with patience to achieve victory and success. After all, winners don't do
different things. They do things differently. The road to success is not a bed of roses. It is full of
thorns and fallacy. Only those who wade through the difficulties of hurdles with grit and
determination can smell the roses.
Gideon High said some try words which are Far from making the end of nationalism, the IPL is the
ultimate triumph of that principle: a global tournament in which the same nation always wins. This
shows the determination and spirit of India as ignoring the facts won't make you stronger, it will
just make you weaker. Survival of the fittest is very necessary among blood. Youth can measurably
be more cloned if patience and equality is developed within them. If the Indian Education System
does not gets better than human capital and wide income inequalities will continue to endorse the
trend of rich will become richer and poor will get poorer. Initiatives like the Right to Education Act
have provided an impetus to growth and progress. Nothing is impossible if the spirit is true, success
is just down the lane. The golden words to sum up would be by Ashok Kallarakkal which says,
Failure is success in abeyance; but only for those who persevere.

YOUTH AND INDIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM


Nidhi Semwal
(Student, P.G.Govt. College for Girls, Sector-11, Chandigarh)
Indian has the largest youth population in the world. But will our youth, the future of our country
prosper with the kind of education that is being important today? Right to education exists, but our
youth getting the right kind of education? It doesnt matter if you do the right thing or not what
matters is that you say the right thing.
The Indian Education System
The Indian Education System is a very peculiar one. Like in trains we fight for seats in colleges also
same fights again and the commonly known as competitive examinations. I am not here taking
about how pressurizing it is to be in the Indian education system, I will only show my views about,
How this education system kills thinking of the youth ? and Why our country has so many
problems? So, let the games begin.
The Indian Education System has taught us many things; it has taught us to lie, to cheat people etc.
A few years back we had a test in school which had multiple choice questions based on everyday
life situation. That is again not the issue, the issue is that the answers were set and we had to just
mark what education tells us to do and not what we would have done. Why I am saying this? This is
because there are people around me who are blatant hypocrites. As to why they are what education
has taught all of us. A clear example illustrates my views so consider an actual classmate of mine
whose name is not to be mentioned thus let us called him Subject SS. So, this particular subject SS,
along with a few others were discussing the flawed reservation system. Actually the discussion was
started by him as well, he denied the importance of the system and said that it was clearly flawed as
well-developed people still look advantage of it. This was a pretty general discussion but that is not
the point that I am illustrating. Few days back in English class, the teacher asked us to give one
word for someone who still practices and believes in untouchability and caste system. Nobody said
a word, nobody except, the subject SS. This hypocrite gave the world, inhuman. His answer was
14 | P a g e

http://philgcg11chd.webs.com

Sophia, Year 03, Issue 02 (November, 2014)


appreciated by the teacher, by the 45 out of 47 students present that day the 46 th was he himself.
The 47th was me. I did not appreciate him , he fell down in my eyes. I would rather say that when he
said inhuman he maybe referring to the blatantly lying prick who was so shrewd in his views that
he could do anything to gain the answer points( though we dont get any.)
This flawed education system just doesnt end there, the constant nagging of marks, percentage,
percentile and ranks keep us so engrossed into these pretty things that the youth hardly cares
about the economy is falling down, rapes increasing day by day and corruption is becoming the
prime occupation in India. Also when they are not engrossed into any of the competition, they have
things such as IPL, movies which again distract the youth and instruct them to do the unethical
things. I saw people who talked so much rubbish language and used so many random shits.
The last example I would like to give is of my school assembly. We have class-wise presentations
where we take up a topic and prepare paragraphs, thoughts, songs, poems, quizzes and
questionnaire session on it. These are then presented after the daily anthems. Now what I love is
the quiz and what I hate is its alternative that is, the questionnaire sessions. But I have a reason to
hate them, these question session are no less than the multiple choices test. My fellow beings put up
a situation and volunteers are called out of the remaining crowd to answer. I always want to go up
to the mike but I never do because of just one simple reason. My answer will reach a full score on
the No-To-Be-Done-Scale because I will speak the truth and mostly the truth does not actually
match with the pre-defined answer thats why I didnt even get 10 out of 20 on the multiple choice
test. The answers that we receive to the daily life situation are the same as the answer key of that
multiple choice test, the actions that education tells us to do, doesnt matter if the person who just
so blatantly confessed to I would do this and this on the mike, would actually do it or not.
So this is my confession about what the Indian Education System does to us. It does not teach us to
do right things, it only talking about to do say right things. But that is what we need in India
isnt it? We need to improve our education system. Infect its necessary to development of Indian
education system.
Lets hope for the improvement in our education system..
