Puppets With Tangled Strings

Lecture nowadays is commonly termed as the transfer of notes from the Lecturer to the students. For those out there who think I'm exaggerating, I'm giving you information from a very reliable source- myself. I've been trapped hard down under the Indian education system for Engineering and I realize that its time to change.

We are forced to think exactly like the author and any new theories or questionings are highly restricted, just because the book simply doesn't mention it. Has anybody ever thought of the source of the knowledge by the author? His book would have definitely been a collection of 'out-of-the-box' thoughts and ideas by innovative and daring people.

Students would, for sure, fail the first time they try something new. But every failure will teach them something. Like Sir Thomas Edison said after he failed 700 times to create a light bulb, "I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work". You don't walk the first time you try, you have to fall, to learn to pick yourself up.

People are always remembered for what they create, what they have given to the world, not by the grades they acquire. This does not mean that subjects are not important. They are required to establish a baseline for any researcher, but finally, he should be let to do something out of his own gut! Its like giving a dog Police training and making it do nothing but eat and sleep all day! Knowledge here is equivalent to ignorance. Everything you do is forced to be the way that somebody else found out to be right for them.

There was once an old teacher in the ancient Gurukula period in India! While he was taking class, he was very disturbed to notice a cat jumping around. Thus, he continued class after tying it onto a coconut tree nearby. Few days passed and the teacher passed away. The successor, before he took class, bought a new kitten and tied it onto the same coconut tree. When asked for the motive behind it, he said that his teacher did the same thing for a good reason and it must remain unquestioned! Such has been the level of degradation of understanding concepts in today's world!

We must question each and everything we perceive , for it is that which will make us smarter derivations of the Kingdom of Apes. Alas, but for that, we remain equal to them, but we aren't, hopefully. Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached. Let us not be puppets of tangled strings, let us be humans who can think, humans who are capable of inventing something that will change the world, in whatever way, for lies in there, is true happiness.
