In Indian - education system, much pressure is being given to refer to as many books as the students would like to gain knowledge. It is anticipated that in that way, pupil would get maximum knowledge. Such practice would continue till one finishes one's education.
The practical aspect of the science and even in the Psycoligical papers are introduced at a very late stage. So such trend does not prove to be benificial for the pupil.
In contrast to our pattern, in foreign countries, the lessons are backed with practical sessions so that the recipient of education does understand the utility of the education. In the foreign countries, the pupil are allowed to take up any job while studying a particular course. In that way, they raise finance to support themselves while studying a particular course. Such arrangement of education equips the pupils to avail of practical knowledge apart from the theoretical one.
