The Indian education system that was started in the British era was formed by the British to drain the country of its potential knowledge and wisdom. This was a well thought move to keep the Indian minds devoid of the rich heritage and the culture that the country had in the past. This also led to serious damage to the political cause of Indian states.
Rajnath Singh who is currently the president of the BJP has made clear indications that the Indian education has a lot of faults. The education system that was formed by the British has a lot of flaws that we are still following. He has made it clear that the English language is the root cause of the cultural and social degradation that is going o in the country at the moment.
He was fast enough to ask the teachers association in his party to think about ways to reduce or get rid of the flaws that exist in the Indian education system. He suggested that measures should be thought in order to make the education system in India better than the current system so that there can be better academic performances by the students.
The party recently had a teacher cell meeting where he stood tall to make strong comments against the British way of learning in India. He said that the English methods were ruining the values of Indian culture. Due to the learning of English the social values of Indian students have degraded drastically in the last few years. He said that we need to inform our youth about the rich heritage and culture that the country had. We should start making reforms to restore the values of the Indian culture and society.
He said that there is a lot f research work that is going on around the world that has their roots firmly grounded in India. The ancient universities in India were much superior in education compared to the current universities. Before the British came to India the universities were monopolistic and taught a lot of values about the Indian culture to their students.
He also made strong comments saying that the literacy levels of the country at that point of time was close to 95%. Now the literacy levels have fallen well below 70%. He also stated that at that time even the people from lower society were literate and could read and write and in modern India we have people from high class families who cannot read and write.
He mentioned the great works of Rabindranath Tagore that led to the foundation of the uncertainty principle. He also said that the Pythagoras theorem was discovered by Indian mathematicians but the western scientists claimed it. The “God Particle” was also written by Physicist Satyendra Nath Bose. He wants to take Indian education back to the glorious days. He does not support this English way of learning that has caused a lot of Indian minds to go and settle abroad in search of a good living.
