Industrialization wave of last 3 centuries had demand of workers. The ones who obey the rules and follow the instructions. So education system was designed to cater this need.
India in 19th century, was still following their own Guru-shishya tradition. So final product from education would always be self-reliant man. The one who can sustain self and family without anyone’s help or mercy. So it was difficult to generate human resources (machines in human forms to handle machines) from Bharat. There comes Mr Macaulay with his grand scheme to reform Indian Education. And rest is history.
Once upon a time, doing job was consider lowly in this Nation. Now, parents admit their precious wealth in school so that kid can learn some half-baked skills and so that can get good job! 🙁
Job! Ha Ha! 😀 सब जॉबका चक्कर है! बाकी सीखना स्कुलमें नहीं होगा!
“शिष्य मूर्खता करे तो बदनामी गुरु की होती है …… प्रश्नचिन्ह गुरु की शिक्षा-दीक्षा पर लगता है
प्रश्नचिन्ह इसलिए लगता है क्यूंकि शिष्य गुरु की जिम्मेदारी होती है.
और जिम्मेदारी localized होती है !
आप जिम्मेदारी को distribute नहीं कर सकते ……
आज एक बच्चा एक ही विद्या को चार पांच शिक्षकों से पढ़ता है ………
जिम्मेदारी कोई शिक्षक नहीं लेता …… क्यूंकि वो तो distribute हो गई ……..

Actually, in modern system, teacher is salaried employee. He or she is not potent enough to help children. Education does not happen in give and take relation.
