Education as quoted by Swami Vivekananda is manifestation of perfection in man. But when the education system lacks perfection that is expected, perfection in man cannot drive out. Osho believed that purpose of education is to transform the society which we term as social transformation. But let’s correlate these things with the present scenario existing in India. The reason why 3 idiots film became a huge success in India was mainly because it depicted the flaws in educational system. The major drawback is that the bookish learning it promotes. We are unfortunately blessed with a generation who believe that things in prescribed textbooks are the essence of education. The practicality of the subjects remains unknown to the students even when they have a graduation in hand because the practical aspect of the subject was told only for examination purpose. The very basic problem today’s generation has is that most of them study only because of the reason of exams. This is the reason why we find most of the graduates are unemployable even though they may have marks. The very basic reason many fail in the life even though they achieved success in their exams is that they thought that marks are the lone criterion for success in life. The teachers also promote students with more academic brilliance rather than those good in other than curricular activities. The teacher nowadays has just become a person who comes daily just to finish their portions in prescribed time. The teachers are now finding it difficult to have a bonding that used to exist between the students and teachers in previous generations times. At the end we have a box to dump our responsibilities i.e. government. Seriously it lacks vision to bring a fruitful change in the educational scenario in India.

Education has been a problem in our country and lack of it has been blamed for all sorts of evil for hundreds of years....
