    Have we remained basically uneducated in the garb of degrees and certificates?


    Despite literacy and educational development, why is there a dominance of having votes influenced by caste or religion? An interesting point to ponder about and discuss.



    We express regret in different affairs of the country and say that education can solve the problem. Yes, education is important. It helps to understand things in a better way, it helps to gain knowledge and skills, it develops the personality and helps to interact with others. If you know something you can tell about it to others and can do things in a better way than those who do not know. Education develops one in many ways. There are many who feel proud to describe their educational qualifications and data shows the literacy rate of this country is 74%. It varies from State to State and data shows as of 2011 Kerala has the highest literacy rate of 93%. Though it is the overall rate, it varies on different accounts like gender, area etc.

    What is quite surprising is the nature of those people when it comes to voting. Many States that have high literacy rates are polarized in many ways. There you can find one caste has prominence over the other and the politicians are trying to lure people in that state based on castes or religions. It is almost same everywhere and people become influenced by the politicians though they are literate. When somebody doesn't know, it is acceptable that they can be lured or exploited in some ways. But what about educated people, why they are so much concerned about caste, creed and religion? It is not that only illiterates vote and the literates stay away. If that was the case the percentage of voting could have indicated differently. Does education propagate inequality or have we remained basically uneducated in the garb of degrees and certificates?

    Education means overall development of a person. Only a few academic qualifications do not mean that a person is educated. There are many characteristics which are required to become a good citizen and help in the progress of the country.

    So the real education can come when we reform our education system and orient it to community service and social improvement concerns as a part time activities by the students. Students should learn the various traits of the society and it's functioning by working practically in the field and do their project work on the solid grounds.

    There is no harm if the Govt makes it compulsory to go through military training before getting any job in private or Govt organisation. We must learn from Israel.

    Theoretical academic knowledge is not the end of education. It is in fact the beginning.

    Knowledge is power.

    Education is an important part of our life. It helps us to take the right decisions at the right time. It develops our personality and polished our thinking ability.
    But sometimes when it is prerogative to act rationally people behave arrogantly and irrationally even being highly qualified and holding degrees and certificates. People sometimes behave like highly qualified illetrates and are unable to act when it is important to act.
    Education refines the personality of a person and ingrains in him the capability to take the right decisions at the right time. So we should not behave like illiterates and should act rationally and swiftly when the situation demands.

    Education is important with that we acquire our knowledge and enhance our logical ability to take decisions in our life. With getting degrees will not make any person "educated". The overall development comes when you can apply your theoretical knowledge into your day to day practical life. Just scoring high in academics will not imbibe the factors to confront the challenges of the real world.
    Govt. should mull over the entire education system in India so that our next generation can take the country to whole new heights.
    Honesty is best policy.

    Most of the degrees diploma's awarded in India do not equip the candidates with necessary skills. The Company's before hiring look for specific skill sets among the candidates. Therefore there is need to change the curriculum of the degrees and diploma's being awarded by various institutes and Universities.

    The degree or diploma once acquired should quip the candidates with required skills in the respective area of specialization and enhance their employment opportunities. At present students after passing their degree struggle to get internship through which they gain experience and try for job elsewhere. We need to incorporate practical assignment in their curriculum and provide required skill sets before they are awarded the degree.

    There are lakhs of Engineers pass out every year all over India. Only very few of them get selected through campus recruitment. Remaining students have to struggle hard to get placement and some of the students even take up lower jobs.

    It is garb. The word is perfectly alright in this case. It means a distinctive dress.

    #663100 OK, Thank you I correct my mistake and extremely sorry for pointing it! Coming to the pivotal part of the Message there are some Telugu poems regarding education without knowledge. I will quote ''Chaduvadhi inchukona rasagnatha chalakuna aa Chaduvu nirardhakambu raaa" means If you are educated but do not understood the depth and concepts of education and in depth of Knowledge then there is no use of that education... As like Elephant goes for bath in the river and she/he takes the bath and again comes to the banks of river and pour mud on his or her body. As like an educated man who has no Knowledge and also no discipline will be like this....

    Getting the degrees is an academic achievement but it does not guarantee that the person becomes really educated in all the senses. One has to learn many things and ways of life which are not taught in the schools. Learning is the essential element in our life and that comes with experience and involvement. Those who learn good traits from life and believe in global brotherhood are the real educated people.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    Education is mainly should make a person to discriminate between good and bad. He should be able to understand what is to be followed and what is not to be followed. When you go to a musical concert you should talk about the skill and expertise of the artists but not about her/his physical appearance and other traits. That quality should come from our education system. Earlier days a guru used to teach his/ her student values of life, ethics in life and how a person can be a good citizen in the society. Those days people used to equate Guru to God. But these days even a teacher is not thinking about the student's abilities but they are looking into the marks he got in his earlier exam. When a student sees a teacher he should get a respectable opinion but we are hearing teacher falling in love with students and students teasing their lady teachers. This indicates what education is giving to us.
    That is why we are hearing many bad incidents nowadays.
    Coming to voting power, from the beginning in our society caste and religion is predominant and even when we apply for a government job they ask your caste and religion. There are caste and religion based reservations. That is why people always think about these two issues. Actually, when we go for voting we should think about the history, nature and party of the candidates and we should vote to the person who is better among all.
    But with the backdrop of the education they got and the selfishness that developed in their minds, they will go and vote for the person who will be more useful to him personally but not for the whole society. Generally, people can more easily approach the leaders if they are from their caste as there will be some common relatives and there will be caste heads who help them to reach the leader. Here the candidates are also responsible as they support their caste people more when they come to power. That is why in India, caste and politics are not separable.
