Human robots..........

                  Hey, people by looking into the title don't have a misconception that am going to write a topic based on science. From my schooldays on I was seriously bad in science subjects. I can't fall in love with a subject called science where everything’s works solely on logic. There is no value for emotions and feelings in it. Schooldays reminds me of many other things. When I look back I even felt it more appealing as factories than schools. The factories which make human robots.
                                                           According to me, a school is a place where the children are developed mentally and encouraged with all their abilities. Also, a place where brotherhood and unity should be taught. But now are we having such schools around us. Once we had such schools where the human values were taught to the students. Nowadays we don't even have such dedicated teachers with a social commitment which we previously had. Those teachers who had thorough knowledge of subjects and the teachers who know what a student to be taught. Now the teaching changed to be just another money making profession. The teachers just do it for making money without even having any sincerity and social commitment. But they forget the fact that they are spoiling a generation.
                                                          Now we just have the factory-like schools where the children are fitted into a certain agenda fixed by the school authorities. The students are injected with the competition tactics. They are taught to be competitive and to be narrow-minded where the real agenda of giving education to the people is to make them broad-minded. Each student will be different in their tastes, abilities and caliber. They all should be treated differently. But all students are measured on the same scale. And they call it as considering everyone equal. To support that point they even give uniforms to all. But is that the necessary things which should be done for making the feeling of unity.
                                                          First of all, they should teach the students to have their own individuality and also should teach them to respect each other's differences. But that is not the thing which is happening. They treat all the students as if they all are born to be engineers and doctors. Just imagine a world, where there is only engineers and doctors. How unrealistic, dull and horrible it will be. Nature even teach us that there should be differences and varieties around us. That's the beauty as we all know unity in diversity. Why always the students who get high marks in their exams are considered as efficient ones and the others as fools. No one's capacity can be calculated just with their ability to score in their papers. Beyond those stuff there is a beautiful world around us. But the so-called factory schools doesn't even give a chance for the students to enjoy that because they give many other things for these students to focus.
                                                        Personally, I was a person who was not that good at studies in my schooldays. No one ever had a fate on me except my mom. She taught me to believe in myself and the caliber which I have inside me. Through her eyes, I saw a different world where I saw a world of love, brotherhood and unity. Also, I started to believe in myself. No schools had taught me that. Because of my mom, I was escaped from being a human robot. In reality, the schools are creating the students as robots who have the negative human qualities. The schools make the mindset of the students in such a way that they can't withstand or face even a small failure. That's why we hear news about suicide cases when the students fail in exams. Even people judge others with their position, money and status. We forget to look upon the person's character. Sometimes it may be the reason why the crime rates are increasing now. People don't have any human values. They just have self-love. Everyone want to be better than the other. Everyone needs power because the so-called factory schools taught us to be so. If the society has to be changed first our education system should be changed. The teaching style of the schools should be changed. It could change a whole generation itself and we will have a better world. You can learn anything in this world that's your wish but first learn to love and accept.

  7. its high time that our education system and the existing attitude to 'education ' changed...students are brain washed into thinking that it is for money only we get educated and marks are everything..I hate the whole marking system....how can we do that?..you are right...each student is different...the capabilities are different....you cant say if one is good in science he or she is brilliant and those who are not are stupid!
    To quote Einstein,
    " If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life thinking it is stupid"

    that is what the education system is doing! Talking from experience!
    good writing Amita!
