Teri Aukaat Hai Kya 80% Laane Ki?

           419th BLOG -->>

        After watching the great Digvijay Singh on the great news channel - India TV, I and my father started talking about government and our ministers. Suddenly, I took the name of Kapil Sibal and my father started supporting him. I was shocked. I asked him which news channel do u watch because I wanted to know that which news channel is talking about Kapil Sibal so pragmatically? He told me that you agree or not, Kapil Sibal has made our Education System too smooth. I was shocked to hear his idea. I asked him,"What is too cool in today's Education System?" He said to me that don't you remember the number of suicidal cases in India just after the results used to be declared during board exam days? I nodded positively. He said, for a parent, their child is their only achievement and money and fame matters nothing to them in front of the child. Every father wants his son to be bigger and powerful than him and every mother wants her daughter to be more tasteful while cooking than her.  Every parent want their child above his studies. Even a Failure child is dearer to parent. Just imagine the pain of the parent to see their child dead.

           I started thinking about our reformed Educational System by Kapil Sibal and I was somewhat OK with it while I disagreed at most of the points. I'll not talk about all the points here because whenever I do this, some trolls come and say that I am an agent of some political party or something. That is truly crazy and hilarious but I don't want to disturb my trolls tonight as I am writing something about a political system. Now-a-days, whenever a board exam's result is out, I ask all my friends and neighbours about their percentage and all of them end up saying something above 80 percent. Now, I am shocked to see normal students scoring quite above Distinction. How is this possible? I was a very studious child of my time and I did little carelessness during my exam period and I ended up being a First-class scorer rather than a Distinction scorer in my board exam. Why is Government showing so much Dildaari now-a-days?

            You may be remembering the number of Suicides we heard  in the Summer of 2009 and 2010. Like Rape today, Suicide was a serious issue then. Government sat together and discussed about the consequences and reasons behind these suicides and they came to know that the maximum number of suicide takes place because of the bad results or the pressure of the result. They simplified the courses and added the options like Best of 5. They also decreased the syllabus of many boards and made it simple for students. They started Grading system in the results so that student don't feel a pressure of telling everyone his actual percentage to the close ones and friends. Now, the result is that the Cut-offs of many college is 100%. They are not even compromising the students with 99%. This is the position of the Indian education today. Government increased the number of seats for various courses but what is the use if Cut-offs are restricted to 100%? 

            Now a student of my potential scores 80% in board exams and walk with his head high on the road. He has achieved what was not even a dream for him. Isn't this injustice with me and many students like me who got less percentage even after performing quite good? What was our mistake that we got 65% and they got 80% with the same kind of answers in their paper? I said the same thing to my father and he replied back that I studied with more deeper concepts than you have studied, I had much thicker textbooks than you had in your school, so isn't this a benefit for you and an injustice to me? I had to say YES. He said that all these benefits given to these new students is to save their life. I said,"Can't they give them a motivational talk every month in school with examples of many students failing and then achieving success later?" He said kids with pressure don't want to listen to anyone. Yes, he is right somewhere. Then I said that every time a board result was announced this year, more than 95 to 96% passed in the board. Isn't this unfair that they are eliminating only those students who are really very poor and granting success to all of them who are even little knowledgeable to fill their papers? Papa replied to this that the level is still the same. You with 60% didn't got admission in Engineering or any big course, same is the situation with the boy of your potential who got 80% because the cut-offs has also raised accordingly. I was quiet on this. He said even when the maximum number of students are passing, they have to struggle in the same way in spite of 80% marks on their result card.

             This satisfied me and I smiled. But do you seriously feel that this form of Education System is right and fair?

            Do reply. Thanks.

Hey,
I totally agree with him on the last point,but like he said there seems to be no point in decreasing the course pressure and all that because once the child comes out of school he/she will definitely notice the tremendous pressure and competition around.
Yes, it has definitely reduced the number of suicides.

Thanks Vijay sir

Harman said...

ya I got some idea..how it works...

Rachit said...

How can Kapil Sibal or others at the power understand the real problem when their own children are all America return? Also emphasis must be laid not on decreasing the quality content of the course but increasing the quality of teachers.
