Crumble the thought! It’s unconstitutional. What about secularism? what about article 15 and 25 of the Indian constitution? Is it not forcing religion on fragile minds of children?
And most importantly , Is it lawful?
These are just the kind of questions that come to mind.
Before we answer these questions, let’s decipher the Article 25 of the Indian Constitution. Law is about how we interpret it. And article 25 is perhaps, the most misinterpreted article in the Indian constitution. It guarantees the freedom to follow any religion and propagate it,yet this freedom comes with a responsibility to ensure that the public order,morality and health are not compromised in the process.
Now the important question is, does including Gita as part of school curriculum serve any purpose? Can it help the youth to develop into something better?
Haryana chief minister, Manohar Lal Khattar already decided to introduce Bhagavad Gita in schools last year. The proposed notion has been strongly misunderstood by many. It is important to understand the purpose, more like an offering for morality and spirituality.
If only we understand, Bhagwad Gita to be the eternal message of spiritual wisdom, from one of the most ancient Indian text, rather than a religious book. If we desperately want to preserve our vast culture and literature,and promise a better future for ourselves, how is it unfair? Also to study history of ancient India, it is necessary to study the Gita, simultaneously making sure to not harm the belief of any religious group, so as to grasp a better understanding of our countries ancient past.
Can there be a midway approach, so that no sentiments are hurt?
If the content to be taught is meticulously arranged,which can actually offer the students with values and truthfulness, unbiased to any religion, it would define the true meaning of education. The motto is not to preach any religion but to inculcate non-material knowledge into little minds so that roots are still bridged together with our rich ancient culture.
The scope of education and knowledge would be limitless. I mean, This is what education is about! Right?
The rise of digitalisation and automation brought several changes in the Indian job sector; Owing to this, the way we impart and consume education went through a transformation as well. To succeed in any industry, degree, practical experience, and proficiency in domain-specific skills are certainly important. However, in order to efficiently use technology and apply your hard skills, it is extremely important to brush your soft skills before entering any organisation.
Earlier, freshers only had a degree, few college assignments, and projects to talk about during interviews; however, the concept of internships, online trainings, and skill-based learning have completely changed the scenario today. Nowadays, even freshers are expected to hold a record of some internship experience and depict excellent soft skills during interviews. This is vital as in today’s era, robots and automation can simply carry out various day to day tasks, but soft skills such as analytical thinking, communication, active learning, and creativity retain and increase the value of employees in organisations.
To fulfil employers’ expectations, scholars need to strengthen their command on soft skills and one of the best ways to achieve the same is through e-learning. With its self-controllable pace and real-world examples, online training ensures optimal learning and soft skill development within no time.
Here are some in-demand soft skills that you can develop through online trainings
1. Analytical thinking
To find out measurable and accurate solutions for different problems, analytical thinking is extremely essential. Data and information analysis is one of the most essential parts of analytical thinking which can be developed through online trainings. Every day, organisations have to deal with large amounts of data. This information needs to be analysed every now and then to keep a tap on organisations’ growth or decline in different key areas and to strategise further growth. This is why people who are able to handle huge amounts of data to produce good insights and help in taking informed decisions are considered great assets in every organisation.
Having good analytical skills could increase your chances of getting selected during interviews over other applicants. To strengthen your analytical skills, online trainings such as data science and advanced excel prove beneficial. The data science training teaches you to read a CSV file, understand operators, variables, dictionaries, functions, and data structures. Moreover, it lets you learn about data distribution, probability, data statistics, and types of testing while understanding the concepts of descriptive stats and inferential stats. Similarly, in the advanced excel training, you can learn In-depth lessons on formulas, functions, lookup functions, and data validation. You eventually learn how to automate, analyze, and present Excel data in the most effective manner.
We all deal with multiple problems in our lives whether small or huge. Ultimately, the only thing that keeps us going is our ability to analyse and resolve these problems. During any situation of crisis, employers always consider those employees who have the ability to resolve issues from ground level. Online programming trainings such as web development, core Java, Angular, and Android app development, strengthen your problem-solving skills.
Programming is one such field where your problem-solving skills are largely addressed. While coding, the training helps you to develop a habit of computational thinking and learn to simplify complicated issues through simple codes. An aesthetic design could surely please the users at one go, but unless it solves one of their problems like shopping, buying food, or shipping a parcel across, it is of no use. Enrolling in any of the programming trainings allows you to deeply identify, analyse, plan, practice, and resolve multiple problems not only during coding but also in your day to day tasks.
Automation has brought enough technical efficiency, but creativity is one such segment where human involvement would always be required. Every organisation has multiple competitors today so, to stand out and capture the attention of their target segment, companies need to be creative. Therefore, employers generally look for those people who can think out of the box.
Scholars can enrol in online trainings such as AutoCAD which helps to polish the creative skills. The training teaches you to precisely work on lines, points, circles, and arcs, shapes, study the key concepts of layers and a lot more. In an industrial project, it also requires you to work on 2D drafts and 3D models and come up with unique and creative designs. Whether you are an architectural, mechanical or electrical engineer, every new plan requires you to be creative than ever before. In fact, students who choose digital marketing trainings also develop their creative skills faster. Your skills in such training are polished when you plan and execute various digital marketing campaigns. Above all, online trainings develop your thinking and allow you to creatively plan and implement everyday tasks in your work premises.
All of these skills are put to use when you start working on assignments, assessment tests, code challenges, quizzes, exercises, and industrial projects that are provided in every online training. E-learning helps you to not just learn but implement and test your soft skills through such practically advanced options. For freshers with little or no working experience, soft skills are really essential during the screening process as it is the prerequisite based on which candidates are shortlisted.
