It is believed that Parasurama created Kerala by converting a portion of sea into land by throwing his axe . Kerala has a rich cultural heritage.
fondly known as ‘the gods own country’has wonderful tradition with lot of ethnic values and cultures. Onam and Vishu are the most celebrated traditional festivals of the land apart from the other festivals..there is no difference in enjoyment of the festivals like christmas ,id -Ul-Fitr , easter, holi ..they celebrate it with equal enthusiasm ..
the theatrical and classical shows like drama , mohiniyattom , kathakali , koodiyattom , chakiyarkoothu reveals their traditional values which also shows that how much they are attached and fond of art and culture .which means the keralites are very much adhere to their traditional customs and cultre and might go to any extent for maintaining it.They are also so good in the field of medicines which they acquired from the great dravidian ancestors . Though kerala occupies a small portion of the subcontinent she is noted for her varied culture of arts which includes the afore said classical dance forms . The culture of keralites aka malayalis are deep rooted because they give great importance to philosophy ,education ,religion ,arts and social organizations .UNESCO announced Koodiyattom which is a type of theatrical drama of epic stories of gods ( like that of kathakali ) as the Human heritage art .
what we think when we hear about china ,obviously Kung-Fu , like that kerala has its own martial art commonly and widely known as kalaripayattu …the most difficult martial art .once there was a feature on kalaripayttu on National Geographic channel im not going any further on that documentary..
the soul of the state is in its people, who are known for their knowledge in the field of ayurvedic medicine along with the knowledge in handicrafts and sculptures , like the expertise in various fields . Keralites are very good in agriculture because of its excellent agro-climatic conditions kerala contributes almost 95%of the countries total rubber and black pepper exports ..though main economy is from the field of agriculture though fresh sea fish are exported to various parts of the globe ..
The Green paradise lying under the shades of western ghats , real paradise on the earth tats why its been called by the nick name The Gods Own Country ..There is more to say about this state ,now she is in a stage of survival from the unprecedented rain and floods since the month of Aug’2018…
India ranks 92 in education among 145 countries .Education should be the number one priority for India because its the most fundamental need of a developing nation …India is nowhere near the top ten countries even not in the top fifty..Education is the founding stone of a country’s economy. If a country which fails to provide its citizens the right to education it lags behind in every way.
India is one of the top educational institution all over the world before the colonial period though it has roots of the ancient ages where they followed the Gurukul system ,wide syllabus with different subjects from Sanskrit ( Scriptures) , Mathematics ,Metaphysics ,medicine (ayurveda )..most beautiful system were the students are allowed to reside with the teacher (guru) until he(guru) felt that he (student)has imparted all the knowledge that he could (sri shankara acharya , aryabhatta , bhaskara , charaka , kautalya , are some phenomenal examples of the gurukula system they have contributed to the world what they have attained from their respective gurus during the time of their education )..The system has been entirely changed after the invasion of Britain were they have established schools which follows an entirely different curriculum having subjects like science ,mathematics and english language which is more like closed class room oriented system .
While talking about the global higher education system India is in the third place that is indian higher education system is the third largest education system in the world the first and second are china and US respectively ..After the completion of the secondary (tenth grade ) exam an indian student has to opt either science ,commerce ,humanities ,computer science for their senior secondary level of education even though there is a trend of opting foreign countries (abroad) for further studies after the completion post graduation in india .
Why is this happening in INDIA?
The answer is simple and evident why the indian students after their completion of post graduation are not opting india for their further education…because of the lack of high quality programmes offered by the indian universities and colleges , lack of proper infrastructure and out dated syllabus ..
Where do we start?
Schools are the place which plays a vital role in developing a persons mental ,social and professional growth which churn the students only for competitive examinations with out any practical knowledge and creative thinking ability so the change must begin from the grass root level that is the schooling system as it plays an important role in developing a persons mind ..latest trends which have been inducted on late 2010s in the indian education systems rather than the common long period (long hour)lectures by teachers ,especially the smart class the digital encyclopedia and library which is in audio visual format which enables the teacher to assimilate how much knowledge or information has been attained by the student from that particular content thus he/she (the teacher) can repeat the lesson which the student don’t appear to have grasped ..High level stress among students have give rise to many alternative educational methods like montessory and gardner system of schooling..
Even though we are following the British system of education indias contribution to the world is good indeed although we are having the best law colleges ,medical colleges ,IIMs and IITs our education system must focus on carving good entrepreneurs ,artists ,writers ,scientists who all are very important for developing an economy . As India mourns to the death of one of its greatest visionaries Dr. Abdul Kalam , He said, “When the students pass out of senior secondary school they have only two certificates they are the certificate of passing the secondary school leaving certificate and the senior secondary school leaving certificate . According to him ,besides the normal curriculum the students should receive training in any special skill set that will offer an extra certificate that promote entrepreneurship in the country this kind of education system will generate job creators instead of job seekers.
