Truth of life

What is the ultimate destination? Where are we leading? These were some questions that provoked my thoughts when I was reading Emily Dickinson’s collection of poems about life.

Man is running to achieve the goal but is unaware of the ultimate destination. He is running after the materialistic thing, fighting for it, killing in the name of religion or god, and causing destruction for what? For surviving? Seriously?

Do we really want all these things we are running for? Are we at peace? Will we find peace after achieving all that we want? No, is the only answer to all these questions. Neither we are at peace, nor we will be. The reason is that we are never satisfied in our life. We always have quest to achieve more and more. Man is blind, he is unable to see the truth of life. Why it happens that man in his last days become more spiritual and not before that? The leisure we are running for, will not help us at the death bed. Perhaps, this is the reason why in old age only, man turn towards god.The truth of life is that how big your car may be, you would be carried for cremation on the four shoulders or in an ambulance. How luxurious your bed would be but you would lay down on pyre before the ‘Antyeshi’. How big your bungalow would be but your body would be burnt at crematorium. Are we killing people because they are richer in wealth than us? Or killing them because they do not belong to our religion/ our caste? So, what are we running for?

More than anger, I am filled with compassion for the human race. I am sorry for the condition of man. As I wrote in my earlier blogs run to create memories an not money. Life is a thing with feathers which will flew away without letting you know. So, instead of creating houses, create relations. Instead of collecting money, collect memories. Spread love and happiness.

 

 

 

Time

|| आज हम पर है,

कल तुम पर आएगा,

वक्त ही तो है,

आखिर बदल जायेगा ||

Time is something we cannot rely on. You don’t know about the next moment. You were happy a moment ago; and now you are not. Time do not stop for anyone, nor should we be stagnant. There are obviously some low times in our life but time doesn’t stop there. It’s just a beginning; a beginning of new war with life; a war to win upon.

Time is like a sand; more you try to hold it tightly into your hands more it will run out of your hands. I’m sure it is easy for many of us to say that we should not waste time because time is precious. Denying this fact of time would be idiocy. So, I won’t deny but instead favor it and will put up a question for you? What according to you is wastage of time?

I’ll wait for the responses and then will let you know my views upon wastage of time.

CBSE

Change is the only permanent thing in the world!

Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE, was established in the year 1929. It is one of the largest and oldest board of secondary education in India. It has more than 16000 affiliated schools in India and across 24 other countries of the world.

CBSE has worked hard to bring about large number of changes in the system. I appreciate the effort made by CBSE, but personally I feel that the changes brought are not working in the right direction. Though the results have improved but on what cost? Do students are getting that knowledge which they are supposed to get? Are they really working hard to score or the scores are being given to improve the stats?

We can see that earlier it was really difficult to score 90% in tenth and twelfth boards but the times have changed, it has become so easy to score 90% nowadays. This marking system has not reduced the pressure on students instead has increased it manifold. The students even scoring 90-95% are not able to get admission to good colleges. Competition has reached to zenith and the sufferers are none other than students. Changes should be for the good. It is poignant to notice that changes brought are not a wise move made by CBSE. It has not caused any good to children.

The other change which CBSE  had brought is choice in 10th boards. Tenth boards, in my opinion are the base for the twelfth class. Students in tenth class are able to get the pattern of board and get to know the pattern to attempt it. Though students have been given choice to give boards or not but the seriousness of tenth class board has just dissipate and this is nagging the mind of the child, because the child get serious only in twelfth and sudden pressure in mind drag them to depression. The Grading system in tenth class is like cherry on the cake.

India’s three-year old ban on failing students till Class 8 has attracted its sharpest criticism yet, with the parliamentary standing committee on human resource development (HRD) blaming the policy for consistently declining standards in reading and math across the country’s schools. This policy when introduced have somehow relieved the students and parents stress but didn’t make them aware of the problems related to it in the distant future. This policy is now being reconsidered by CABE (central advisory board of education) which I think is the matter of relief.

However, the CCE pattern introduced by CBSE is also not fully successful as the students are happy to score from non-scholastic activities in schools which is thus not affecting overall result of the student but however degrading the scholastic result of student. Though CCE pattern introduced is a nice concept as it helps in holistic development of child but a matter of fact is that the marks distribution under CCE is needed to be revised focussing more on scholastic activities.

Changes are the only permanent thing in life and I hope that these changes doesn’t permanently spoil the life of children.
