For the first time since the inception of modern education in the country, there’s a wind of change. Sure, the education system has evolved with the country’s progress but the good old academic excellence mantra has yet remained static despite the many accusations against it from students and parents of students. Finally however, the striking developments in the professional sphere and the culture shock that students face during the transition from education to career caught on and inspired the drafting and implementation of the New Education Policy 2020. It will take a couple of more years for the new ideas to take concrete shape; but it’s a start that we all can get onboard with.
The skill component takes the forefront in this new vision of a futuristic education, followed by an expansive choice of subjects to pursue for the students. The degrees awarded post the implementation of NEP 2020 will be termed Bachelors of Liberal Arts, as opposed to Bachelors in specific streams of education. However, state governments hold the power to make amendments to the proposed ideas based on the requirements of their population.
What we can be confident of is that the accusation of the system being a rat race will no longer hold true. Every individual will have a diverse yet clearly paved path to pursue what truly interests them; which is no short of revolutionary for a student base as strong, diverse and intelligent as India’s. It is a massive challenge for the educational institutions indeed, but the prospect of liberating the system from an age old method that is rapidly growing obsolete is empowering. ERP solutions by eGenius are customized with intent understanding of the futuristic, NEP based education system.
One of the things that India remembers with a flinched undertone is the partition of the country into two that happened in the year of independence. A British Lieutenant General and Military Historian Barney White-Spunner has documented this part of Indian history with painstaking details in his work ‘Partition’. Spunner has presented an engaging yet heartbreaking account of the entire process, divided by months and validated by ample documented evidence. He in fact has called the Partition and creation of Pakistan in 1947 a holocaust and justified it with the gut wrenching accounts of human misery in the politically manipulated mass manoeuvring. Spunner’s account of the
history associated with Indian Independence is a recommended read this Independence Day.
