Like, I’ve already mentioned, people get numb on basic questions after completing a degree or school. I always say, “It is not important to pass a class; important is what you learnt from it.” So, these part is dedicated to my fellow friends of student community.
Start gathering knowledge instead of cramming things. Cramming is not going to help you anywhere but knowledge will surely help you everywhere. You can’t do innovations and accomplish great things in life by cramming, you need knowledge for it.Don’t read books just for exams but read them for gaining knowledge. Our main and sole aim for studying is to architect our future; stop being crammer and be the architect of your future.
Leave your comfort zone and achieve great things in life. Start studying and learning things.We only are going to make ourselves ‘awesome’ by learning skill to tackle ups and downs of life and they can’t be crammed.
One of the causes for ‘Only 13% MBA holders are ELIGIBLE for Jobs’ is our system. Our system force students to be crammers.
Our education policy should more emphasis on How and Why instead of What, When and Where. What, When and Where are important but we should not emphasis on them because they serve as raw facts only but for innovation we need to look on How and Why of What, When and Where.
We are having subjects named ‘Applied Physics’ but still working on the theoretical part of it and for innovations we need, practical knowledge that can be learned by a practical curriculum.
On the same hand at institutional level, co-curricular should be given emphasis over completing the predefined syllabus. They opens the mind to a new level along with strong-imagination power.
I asked this question to Anudeep Chhadidar, my creative senior at Institute of Management Studies (IMS), he pointed out some reasons. Many of them have been already written but one point which caught my attention was ‘diversified syllabuses’. He said, “Almost 40% school going students, studies in either CBSE or ICSE board and left 60% students, studies in local state boards. All of these (CBSE, ICSE and state boards) have different syllabus and pattern of questioning and this where we stuck.”
The other point which he made was The Gurukul Technique. In ancient India, there would be research conducted by a Gurukul on a child, which would find his particular talent. We need to reignite it from the school only for efficient and optimum use of a child’s talent.
I searched this question on Quora, ‘Why India is not able to produce, productive graduates’. I agreed to one of the answers and it was written by Sachin Haldavanekar. He said, ‘Most teachers in India have rarely done job, which they are teaching to students. So, if you are not sure what exactly are people supposed to do on a job, how you can guide them on the right path.
On the other hand, in the US universities, the people who teach are industry experts. Not bad at all, if you find a teacher with an industry experience of 10-12 or more years. Imagine the wealth of immense practical knowledge and examples that a person can give to his audience. This builds the right picture of the upcoming industry challenges.’
This is just a part of his answer, you can read the whole answer which includes some practical examples.
