Delhi, April 23, 2017: In a Democratic setup, one has to pay heed to myriads of factors like Caste, Creed, Religion, etc. But Education is something that helps your quest to the pinnacle and keeps aside all those factors. A Man with adequate knowledge through the way of education can rise on the crest of success and hence it is required to be encapsulated from bureaucracy.

Education brings awareness of the surroundings and helps a person to raise his voice on issues concerned with morality and ethical rights. But what if Bureaucracy and Totalitarian get involved in the Education System?. For say, In India reservation is given to people of the backwards class to help them from their miserable conditions and avail benefits which otherwise becomes difficult for them. The idea behind reservation is to uplift them above the lines where they can not manage to reach. However, few people have misinterpreted the law and thus demand reservation despite having everything at their notch. They treat the reservation as their birthright and forgets the rationale behind the proposed law. Turns out, repercussions are faced by the unreserved students which are supposedly more intellectual than their reserved category counterparts.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

“Why would a Professor like to teach those students who don’t have command on their basic concepts and the reason they relied purely on reservation quota and got selected for the course, when there are already numerous students out there who are more intellectual but just because they don’t have reservation quota they don’t get this opportunity”, said Manohar Lal a professor in electronics department of IP University.

Apart from this many political parties gets rallied for a common purpose which ignites rivalry amongst the student wing. Rivalries occur due to widespread diversities in caste, creeds and extremism. In India, if you have a stand or an action for your moral right then you have to switch to infamous tactics like protests or hunger strikes. But when students become the part of this agitation and hoist for their rights, the hard-hitting truth is that no political party comes into the picture to support the real cause. The students we have met so far tell how much they had to lost to get their simple and genuine request heard from the government. You will not be heard by Political parties unless you do not have sources and references. Education should be seen as sharing the knowledge among people and not as a means to succumb to politics and be at the helm of it.

“I got a 99.3 percentile in CAT exam still didn’t get selected for any of the reputed IIMS and the reason was, I was a general category candidate on the other hand students SC/ST category with 80 percentile get selected every year”, said a CAT aspirant Prithvi Raj.

“Similarly, more concrete steps are needed for tackling corruption. While strategies are being formulated by the government to address them, our survey shows that Indians are preoccupied with concerns around these macro issues and will like them to be mitigated,” Chakraborty added.
