Educator should be more educated than the educatee/pupil. Shouldn’t? Well in real life the educator could be imbecile. The way things are done, in India, in all spheres of life, are not a product of well imagined logical thinking. Rather it is another step ahead in colonial ways when we were second priority citizen in the land of our birth. That way we remain the same second-rate citizen, after the superior rulers have long gone. Unlike USA, we are still groping on the wayward ways left behind by Colonial Masters. Education system is an example of this dichotomy.
Education through Homework:
Nowhere in the world the children are burdened with homework, the way they are burdened in India. Teachers use their class not as an opportunity to reach out to students to understand their individual biases and prejudices which are obstructing learning but the use the daïs of the classroom as a podium to declare their magnitude of knowledge. ……….

Conundrum of FIITJEE coaching culture:
( by Sandeep Bhalla )
What is FIITJEE and what it does:
FIITJEE is a preparatory coaching institute. It has an excellent marketing model to sell its products even if its integrity in making the claims, it makes, is doubtful. FIIT-JEE is a commercial, private, limited liability company. It provides science and maths coaching to students from class 6th onwards to class 12th. It claims that it prepares children in class 6 to 8 for science and maths so that they may prepare for National Talent Hunt or Science Olympiad etc. As regards class 9 to 12, they are to be prepared for entrance examination for prestigious IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) and JEE (Joint Engineering Entrance Examination) Govt. subsidized Engg. College. Those who want to pursue Medicine are switched to Biology after class 10. Though it claims that it’s study is integrated with CBSE i.e. normal school study, its effect is yet to be seen and felt.
Admission to FIITJEE:

are simpleton creatures who spend their life under assumption that they are intelligent. They are always stubborn and very often arrogant. They are capable of hard work but are easily distracted with any new thing. These creatures do all the hard work and with very limited manipulative skill they could hardly ever rise to the political offices. But now things are changing. People are more appreciative and some them have made it to offices of Judges and recently to the office of Head of the State and even United Nation. But the problem is that at such places they are manipulated by others like their wives, advisors or parents (last if still around). Their natural talent is thus abused. The best thing about them is that they are repetitive. They keep on doing the same thing and even though complain boredom, they never change their pattern of functioning. It becomes very easy to take work from such people. Once their programming is properly understood and their obedience achieved, intelligent people love to have them around. Being not manipulative they cannot plan any adventure but their life is an adventure of repetitive errors and a tale of great survivorship.
English language is a language of adjectives, labels, names, pronouns and what not. If we take the word fool, it categorize them as idiot, imbecile, moron and fool. With idiot bordering on extreme foolishness and fool being the most intelligent among them. Here I am talking about these intelligent beings.
On this day of pranks we must do a serious work of seeking to establish a new Fundamental Right by writing it down here and now.
A fool when born, the parents become unnecessarily anxious. They take him to best possible schools/coaching to get best possible degrees, to make them a professional or a bureaucrat or even a politician. All by training or coaching. After all intelligent people like Milton, Einstein, Edison etc. needed no coaching. They were brilliant or rather genius. Now if Foolishness is declared to be a fundamental right, the whole society can be saved from the atrocities of fools who have infiltrated into every office by cramming the books written by intelligent people. The stronger argument
is about the people who do not, after all the efforts pass in exams due to their inability to cram all irrelevant historical facts about various branches of study. They fall sick and some of them also commit suicide. Now if only we recognize their right of co-existence and give them their rightful place, a vast humanity can be saved from all kinds of problems.
Therefore this issue must be taken up at every forum from United Nation to Parliament of every Country that we must refrain from converting/covering our foolish descendants and encourage them in their natural aptitude without any fear or guilt. Let their be a new word order of peaceful co-existence with fools.
