Schooling and Learning

Our (Indian) educational system is terribly pathetic. It pains. It hurts. Because the foundation is so bad, there is no wonder that we see a ton of problems unsolved to say the least.

Parents send their kids to school not with the goal of enhancing the kids knowledge through education and learning. They do so because they want their kids to participate in the race of discrimination very early on in life, hoping it would prepare them to land in cosy jobs. Tell them that what they do is wrong, they instantly hit back citing the corporate advertisements or job boards. Heck, it's a vicious circle that nobody wants to break.
