Its so amazing how things coincide in life, how different experiences lead to some concrete solutions.
I had been wondering since a few days are these never ending years of education that we go through, are they really serving the purpose of making us wiser and better humans? Are we really happier and better off?
And then my maid remarks out of her frustration ” saare kaamchor log par rahe hain 😀 ” ( nobody in her family helps her, everyone is studying :D)
And this got my brain factory churning out the obvious. All the geography, history, chemistry, calculus and what not, I don’t think it has helped me at all, other than keeping me busy while I could be playing and dreaming :). And the dilemma is that I would have to make my kids mug all this up, to become acceptable.
Had I been taught life skills, oneness of people, happiness, contribution, sharing, dealing with uncertainties in life, the importance of people, I would be sleeping better now.!
Discarding the futile, I could have learnt the useful stuff in half the number of years :D. I feel that even engineering years could have been cut down to one from four, if all the calculus, physics, chemistry,electric circuits (and other crazy things that I don’t even remember now) were left out 🙂
So how educated are we? Do we feel we are living happier and fulfilling lives? Do we get empowered, or on the contrary we limit our capabilities by being biased (I am this much qualified, so I shouldnot be doing this..)?
Left to introspection for one. Have a great day lovely people.
