“Give and Take”- A policy that most of our present generation believes in adhering to, but when it comes to giving back the society what we get from it,all of us end up being mere hypocrites.
Our society molds us, nurtures us, in all it educates us to be what we aspire to.
An education system is not one that only helps raise the literacy rate as literacy is only a mean to be educated. Education is much beyond literacy. Does our current education system inspire and encourage people to go the “Rancho” way??(Rancho from 3 idiots)
Well, I have thought on it, and slept on it…but the answer is the obvious no. It’s certainly very natural for all parents to want to see their kids to be well off and well settled with a stable life inclusive of the minimum risks plausible. But at what price and with what risks does this well settled life come?
At the price of having a dis-satisfactory career, followed by frustration that hinders one’s ability to perform at the job. This frustration of not being able to keep up or do as one wills to takes over their whole life. It ends up disrupting one’s personal life and effecting the health and sometimes these effects are can be quite adverse. And there now, everyone can see it, down the drain goes a parents dream life for his child.
U.S has the system where citizen has to play the part of a juror, and Singapore has the system where a citizen has to choose between serving time in the army and working for the social services. All these rules are designed to educate the young and instigate them into inculcating a sense of social responsibility.
Every cloud has a silver lining, its high time we let the silver line dominate and let the child choose. We educate the children to follow their gut, respect the society, learn by themselves and make decisions for their own selves and the child sure to do wonders in his field. Even if he falls, he at least learns how to stand up and continue the journey taking the driver’s seat of his own life.
