Renowned sociologist and scientist Prof.Yashpal was in town few days back. He is one of the few people who have the straight-forwardness to oppose the education and examination system in India. “Education is not about cramming, you cannot learn science by mugging equations, you have to touch it to get the feel”, said the Professor. An amazing point that emerges out of the views of many Indian sociologists is about the pseudo development notion that we have here and the ironies that it exposes. We have built highways in the name of development having failed connecting the villages. What is in 2020 we really become a developed nation, as projected? Will every village have a school and roads to reach that by then? Will people striving for employment not torch Bihar and Assam then? Such questions have difficult answers. I will be posting some views of another socialist thinker on this in a coming post.
