If I have to redesign a school
It will be based on one simple rule
“Live and let live” philosophy would be reintroduced
No academic torture to ruin the childhood
What’s the point teaching so many thingsÂ
When we have to produce millions of zombies
I am totally disturbed by the controversy on beef ban in India
What happened to our so called scholars, writers and social media?
Please for holy sake don’t tear the secular fabric of India
By relating cow slaughtering issue with communal beliefs
A Hindu is a hindu just because he doesn’t eat a cow ?
Ah, a beef eating person not necessarily be a muslim somehow !
Leave us alone you opportunists, sick politicians and animal industry owners
In the garb of religion you are spreading poison and misleading the educated
Wit a minute ! Educated ? To hell with their degrees and knowledge
If they fall in the trap of monsters and start accusing their own people
Vindictive debates on this issue and returning awards will not bring solidarityÂ
For that you need to again attend the school to learn the lesson of humanity
Save animals, not because you are a Hindu,
save them because you believe inÂ
LIVE AND LET LIVE
Daily prompt: Â You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?
Emotional Intelligence for one. Interrelation skills.
I agree! ESPECIALLY on the philosophical side of things, The above topic was discussed not too long ago here on our end of the world too :O
How can politicians give violent speeches on such a sensitive issue. They have their vested interests.
The sickness is everywhere … to take away our freedom to believe as we wish and enforce someone’s dogma on us. It doesn’t matter where you go, everyone has god on their side. Everyone who has ever fought a war said god was on his/her/their side. You are right … just let everyone alone to make their OWN decisions. The world would be so much better a place if we didn’t need to force other people to believe the same thing.
Good evening Mrs. Marilyn, I am sorry I couldn’t reply to it before. I was totally away from blogging for few days. This was the last post and then I went into some strange kind of state of mind where I didn’t feel like doing anything except wondering about few things. I tried explaining that in my latest post. Last few political moves in my country disturbed me so much. Aggressive status and tweets from young generation was more shocking.
Very well written… 🙂
I am sure that you would be an excellent minister of education not only in India but also in many other places – tolerance for diversity and curiosity for knowledge must be keywords and not indoctrination, manipulation and mass management – youth must learn to be able to make their own decision and not learn how to do as them with the power want them to do.
Remind me of this quote -“I don’t agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it” -*Voltaire,- french writer*
Dear Drake, this is such an inspiring note and I loved the quotation ! Sorry I couldn’t reply before. You may please read my latest post to know the reason. I was going through a introspecting time where i had to take certain decisions of life. Please be in touch and keep liking my work.
