The Nature of Classification

Life is formed by people. Gatherings are always precious whether it’s a common man or so called celebrities, but not for these days. I surprise when people are divided into class by their income. In the exchange  method early in the beginning of transactions, they had less different categories.By the time, it has been smoothly categorised. Now by income, we have been called poor, lower class, middle class, upper class or Rich. When currencies came into transactions, the importance of exchanges reduced. Those emotions of giving are nowhere and the joy of exchange was there. Then Land, homes, grains have been measured by money. In the modern era of transactions it was only for the requirements  but after that it has taken the form of power and position.

Middle class… When I heard this word from the people, it produced some insulting vibrations…Why should we not be able to forget this class system and go for the better society scenario for future generations? I belonged to a family that had average income years ago, now we have some more income to live with more facilitated life. I know many families who are working hard to manage their monthly expenses. In every situation of disaster the most suffering people are from there. Think about one common man who earns 25,000 INR with honesty. Rarely, he takes a chance to enjoy with his family and he never gets concerns, appreciations from his work by the people where artists, musicians, sportsperson, actors get. There are many families like this living in metro cities. In any situation of pandemic like this, they suffer a lot to fulfil their requirements. These are the people who are boosting the economy of the country when they have to struggle for their own economy. They become shareholders of the multinational industries and pay taxes to the government. They know their family responsibility and have one to two kids, where those people have six to eight kids because of no education and will not be able to provide education to their children. It’s not on the basis of religion but about society. Mostly, those people get concerns from government, media, organisations for the donations. The man who is honest for his work, most of them are addiction free, getting less concern for the help where in  every situation poor people get help from organisations, government funds or by the rich people. I think communism  should be applied on this route. If we forget these things in socialism of different classes then a lot of changes will be in concern. This time is for those who have been able to earn more in recent years and know or remember those families who sicks some help. It’s all about knowing this difficult time and by concern to others we will have a responsible society in future. 

The class is never dependent on earnings, it depends on the nature of an individual.

Thank You So much

Nature for education and Nature of education…

In every aspect of life, we are learning something new. We educate us in a different role. Sometimes of life, of any subject, art, driving, in a career etc. We can be well educated but not anyone can be fully educated even by the end of life. In every zone there is a different system to study and learn. The most valuable study is from the innocent age when we go to school. Observation is the main key to learn something. Our ancestors observed first and then applied to their routine. By that they started to find solutions to problems. They innovated some invaluable things without any school. There was only one teacher and it was “Nature” .

From the ages in Hindu sanskriti there has been a system of study from gurukul. ‘Sandipani’ ashram is the best example of it. In those times, students used to come from their home for a few terms and learned by staying there at ashram. They learnt by sitting under the tree and connecting with  soil. It’s amazing where the results were only seen in the eyes of gurus by their marking and not marks. Maybe there was no mathematics like today. They taught about shooting, languages, astronomy, yantras, mantras, tantra, different mathematics, science etc. The conversation of learning and teaching was in the proximity of nature. That’s why there was no burden of getting highest marks and being at top or bottom.Now, education has been changed totally. Air condition buildings, semesters, materials, books, exams, academies etc. Though the education system has a lot of issues, students should utilise their smooth efforts to study. Getting knowledge from study is more important than getting marks. Many students fears a lot during exams and takes stupid step of suicide !? How!? Exams are more important than life?. Even life is not an exam which can give you a certificate. It’s only filled with lessons. We can have great examples where one girl becomes an IAS topper or CA topper who is living in slums! A great respect for those who are studying hard to achieve something in life. Some have no smartphones, no ac classrooms, without study rooms achieved a lot from their learning. Those who have failed in exams and felt like losing a world should take inspiration from them. 

  Students in those times when an education took in gurukul by the imminent nature. There was no disappointment in the process of learning. The spoken words by gurus were first dropped on the leaves of the trees and then to the ears of students. So here it is much different from there. Hope this difference may be reduced by the coming tutors or students to achieve new heights of education. 

Education is not the slave of facilities, it’s a learning process by interchange between nature and human nature for a better tomorrow.

Thank You so much.
