Corruption free India: Focus should be on education not politicians who capitalize on criticism of others

book-436507_640

By Dr Kallol Guha

First time since 1947 some form of movement, initiated by AAP, is developing against rampant corruption which over the last 65 years has actually been protected, encouraged, and even integrated in the culture. During the sixties, Gulzarilal Nanda, the then Home Minister of India started “Sadachar Samity” as an effort to curb corruption. That the Samity miserably failed doesn’t need any special inquiry.

How a society operates and influences the world is largely determined by the quality of its human resources which is shaped through its education system. The current education system of India, which is primarily breeding Anglophonic species as imitation of American and British subculture is by no means the kind of human resource that pushes the nation forward. Sixty five years of conditioning of India’s human resource by Anglophonic education has multiplied corruption, institutionalized plunder, increased violence and threats of disintegration. No amount of foreign investment, or building of flyovers, or production of fancy movies and cricket will shape human resource.

Once Arvind Kejriwal commented during his 49 days rule- in response to a reporter’s argument that Congress Government of Delhi built number of flyovers and improved infrastructures- that he intends to improve the conditions of the schools and its quality of education. Improving the function of schools will insure building of hundreds of flyovers. I wonder whether politicians who capitalize on criticism of others, often make public appearances, understand the real significance of such a statement?
