Well…. i am in my final year graduation and more over from the most appealing computer science department… i am going to be addressed as an engineer in a few months from now… at this point, here comes my doubt…. am i an educated??? lets see……..
i went to school for 13 long years, there i was taught the alphabets and numbers, nothing except that…. the complicated physics chemistry, biology n mathematics are just the advancements to those alphabets n numbers. well that’s fine, what did i learn about my daily struggle…? today i am surrounded by many questions to which i have no answers.. i neither expected nor my teachers told about these questions….. when i mentioned this point to my friend he said, “SCHOOL DON’T TEACH YOU EVERYTHING IT” LL JUST GIVE YOU THE KNOWLEDGE TO ANSWER DIFFERENT QUESTIONS AND TACKLE VARIOUS PROBLEMS, U NEED TO APPLY THEM CORRECTLY”. okay lets believe in his words, now lets go back and analyze what school taught me n how i can apply them….
>school taught me subjects not knowledge…..
>school taught me physical sciences but not about this physical world…..
>school taught me to equalize LHS and RHS but didn’t tell me how to bring the scattered graph of my life into an equilibrium position…
>school taught me “X is unknown and can be found” but didn’t teach me that there ll be more n more X’s which are very tough to solve in real world….
>school taught me languages but not the skills….
>school taught me about the human body but failed to explain me about human psychology…..
I have learnt many things in school( in fact school made me read,not learn) which has no use now and i didn’t learn many more things which i desperately need in my practical life…..
school taught me OhMs law, which i can define even today but don’t know where it is applied….. school taught me Newtons 3rd law stating every action has an equal and opposite reaction but practically in my life every action has a set of reactions which have more intensity than the original action… school taught me that catalyst is an agent which doesn’t react but increases/decreases the rate of reaction, but why do catalysts(mediators) in my life has a major role in reactions(consequences)….. school taught me the reproductive system of a frog, where do i apply that..:D i was made to pledge, all INDIANS are my brothers n sisters.. is it so??? 😦 :(….
school never taught me about love…. it neither taught me about hatred….. in short school didn’t teach me LIFE. i love my school though n missing it a lot.. school didn’t educate me about life it just fed me crap but it gave me friends, friends forever… 🙂
