Story : Education in Sub-continent

Write down the theme of the following story (Not more than 50 words)

Education in Sub-continent

In the Bengali Language there is a modern maxim which can be translated, ‘He who learns to read and write rides in a carriage and pair.’ In English there is a similar proverb, ‘Knowledge is power.’ It is an offer of a prospective bribe to the student, a promise of an ulterior reward which is more important than knowledge itself…. Unfortunately, our very education lies been successful in depriving us of our real initiative and our courage of thought. The-training we get in our schools has the constant implication in it that it is not for us to produce but to borrow. And we are casting about to borrow our educational plans from European institutions. The trampled plants of Indian com are dreaming of recouping their harvest from the neighboring wheat fields. To change the figure, we forget that for proficiency in walking, it is better to train the muscles of our own legs than to strut upon wooden ones of foreign make, although they clatter and cause more surprise at our skill in using them then it they were living and real.

The Theme : Indian educational system is quite materialistic. It tempts learners to acquire qualifications. By imitating European plans and programmes, it imparts education to learners. In fact, Indian universities or academic institutions have no creativity and productivity. It really lowers down the ego and prestige of an intellectual person in India.

(ভারতীয় শিক্ষা ব্যবস্থা পুরোপুরি বস্তুবাদী। এটা শিক্ষার্থীকে সনদ অর্জনে প্রলুব্ধ করে। এটা ইউরোপীয় পরিকল্পনা ও কর্মসূচি অনুকরণ করে শিক্ষার্থীদে শিক্ষা দিয়ে থাকে। বস্তুত, ভারতীয় বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়গুলোর বা শিক্ষা প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলোর কোনো সৃজনশীলতা বা উৎপাদনশীলতা নেই এটা প্রকৃতপক্ষে ভারতীয় একজন বুদ্ধিবৃত্তিসম্পন্ন ব্যাক্তির মর্যাদা ও সম্মানকে নিচুস্তরে নামিয়ে আনে।)
