ಹಿಂದಿನ ಕಂತೆಗಳು- ಇಂದು ತೆರೆದಾಗ...೦೧

ಕೈಗೆತ್ತಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದ ಕಲಿಕೆಯನ್ನು ಒಂದು ಹಂತಕ್ಕೆ ತಂದು ನಿಲ್ಲಿಸಿಕೊಂಡ ಈ ಘಳಿಗೆಯಲ್ಲಿ, ಹಳೆಯ ತರಗತಿಗಳ, ಪಾಠಗಳ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದ ಲೇಖನಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾಗ ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ಬಿದ್ದದ್ದು ಇದು.
೨೦೦೨-ರ ಸೆಪ್ಟೆಂಬರಿಂದ ಡಿಸೆಂಬರ್ ತನಕ ಡಿ'ಆನ್'ಝಾ ಕಾಲೇಜಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಲಿತ "ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್-೧-ಎ" ತರಗತಿಯ ಒಂದು ಅಸೈನ್'ಮೆಂಟ್- "Quotations on Education". ಒಟ್ಟು ಹತ್ತು ಪುಟಗಳ ನನ್ನ ಸಂಗ್ರಹದಿಂದ ಎರಡು ತುಣುಕುಗಳು ನಿಮ್ಮೆಲ್ಲರ ಅವಗಾಹನೆಗೆ....

M. K. Gandhi – On Education

"The ordinary meaning of education is a knowledge of letters. To teach boys reading, writing and arithmetic is called primary education. A peasant earns his bread honestly. He has ordinary knowledge of the world. He knows fairly well how he should behave towards his parents, his wife, his children and his fellow-villagers. He understands and observes the rules of morality. But he cannot write his own name. What do you propose to do by giving him a knowledge of letters? Will you add an inch to his happiness? Do you wish to make him discontented with his cottage or his lot? And even if you want to do that, he will not need such an education. Carried away by the flood of Western thought, we came to the conclusion, without weighing pros and cons, that we should give this kind of education to the people. This education has produced vacant minds and manufactured servants for the Government. The products of our universities have become nincompoops."


Jiddu Krishnamurthy – On Education

"Now modern education is developing the intellect, offering more and more explanations of life, more and more theories, without the harmonious quality of affection. Therefore we have developed cunning minds to escape from conflict; hence we are satisfied with explanations that scientists and philosophers give us. The mind- the intellect- is satisfied with these innumerable explanations, but intelligence is not, for to understand there must be complete unity of mind and heart in action. Until you really approach all of life with your intelligence, instead of merely with your intellect, no system in the world will save man from the ceaseless toil for bread."

ಆಧುನಿಕ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣ ಮನುಷ್ಯನನ್ನು ’ಸಾಕ್ಷರ ರಾಕ್ಷಸ’ನನ್ನಾಗಿ ಮಾಡಿದೆ ಎನ್ನುವದು ನಿಜ.

ಮಾಡಿದೆ ಮಾತ್ರವಲ್ಲ, ಕಾಕಾ, ಮಾಡುತ್ತಲೇ ಇದೆ. ಇದರಿಂದ ಹೊರಗೆ ಬರುವ ದಾರಿ ಮಾತ್ರ ಕಾಣುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲವಲ್ಲ! ಹಿಂದಿರುಗಿ ನಿಂತು ನೋಡಲಾಗದಷ್ಟೂ ಮುಂದೆ ಬಂದುಬಿಟ್ಟಿದೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಸಾಮಾಜಿಕ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣ ಕ್ರಾಂತಿ.
