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.

Study is for Learning and Revamp the Life…

Knowledge is the key to understand our life. Many rural places in India are suffering to get proper education. Is getting an education about money at the end? Definitely not.. Though Education is not about getting high marks or numbers but it can grow up us in a proper way that we need. Learning is the thing where we improve as a mature and better person at every stage of life.

In our district there are many guys who lived in a rural area could have enough education through government schools. But, they grew up in influence of money. Those wealthy families who earn more than enough and they think about  no use of education. Their child gets what they demand like expensive bikes, cars, smartphones etc. They left studies and wandering in villages like kings. They are not serious about their life and the world they see is just a small village.It is like the frog in the well does not know the vastness of the sea. We can find arrogance in their language. Even those kids go to schools they don’t respect and obey their teachers.

Some parents always have a thought about those big names like Albert Einstein, Edison, Leonardo da vinci who had not enough education but they became greats of the world !? Those parents forget to see the other side of those greats.Though they left their education but they never left their study, learning and exams ! They gained knowledge from their daily life and invented invaluable things for the world. They  never thought of obtaining a degree but learning,study and achieve success was the motto. If one may not enjoy studying then he/she should go for learning and gaining knowledge by reading, creating, playing, helping and by inventing.

Learning is most important in any field and everyone should always be learning.  

An influence of something should not be the lack of some things of necessary…

Thank you so much.
