Shaping ‘New Bharat’ With Core Values

School director Bharat Bhushan Gupta feels that time has come to re-design the curriculum so that schools don’t produce mechanical humans devoid of human values

Sri Sathya Sai Baba said, “Education is for life and not for living”, but this does not fit in the present education system. Education plays a crucial role in shaping lives, so it’s imperative that we reframe and overhaul the curriculum. In the rat-race for a good score,  we have forgotten that the ultimate aim of education is to build a strong character and in turn make the nation strong.
We have a brigade of youth where MSc (Physics) degree holders needs electrician to fix a fuse and MA (English) degree holders fail to draft an application. Unfortunately, even after decades of independence, we still have an education system that promotes a clerical culture. Instead of fulfilling its primary aim, the present-day education system has just become a means of passing information rather than transforming human beings. In other words, we can say that imparting education has turned rather  artificial than ‘heartificial’.
Time has come to re-design our curriculum so that we do not merely produce mechanical humans devoid of core human values. Instead,  they should be groomed in an environment that enables them to admire Indian culture, imbibe value system etc. Education must also instill values that enables one to embrace unity in diverse society. Let us teach children the three core values - Love for god, fear of sin and respect for the laws or norms of society.
In an era where impact of global warming are visible in every facet of life, it is essential to encourage children to adopt eco-friendly ways of living. We hail from the country that worships every facet of nature, but we have failed to pass on the same to the younger generation. Besides, inculcating empathy by facilitating their interaction with the have-nots of society, children should be self-disciplined and encouraged to listen to their inner conscience. The western world has adopted our way of living but we, in India, look towards them and ape them blindly leaving our tradition behind. We always strive to make our children great rather than good. To incorporate values in young minds, we need to nourish them with ethics in harmony.
If we facilitators, do not take this responsibility to guide this curious generation, then the day is not far,  when these children will bear the fruits of success in some foreign land using their motherland’s resources just for their self-growth. Let’s teach them the 5Ds concept of devotion, discrimination between right and wrong,
discipline, determination and duty. Even as world is rooting for robot teacher, we need to keep their faith intact in their teachers as it will have a long-lasting impact and will make them worthy citizens of the ‘New Bharat’.
