Government Schools in India – need for improvement

 

In our country educational schools are divided by the society as private schools and government schools.

Private schools are basically a place where most of the parents want their students to study. But because of higher fee structure poor people are not able to send their children to these schools and compromise with sending their children in a government schools.

So actually what is the difference between a private and Government School?

 

Private School  Government School
1.       Excellent and maintained infrastructure for classroom, library, laboratory, Playground.

2.       Modern way of teaching.

3.       Skilled, Qualified teachers and better student to teacher ratio.

4.       Extracurricular activities to enhance student’s ability and creativity.

5.       Better utilization of school area.

6.       Sanitized toilets.

7.       High Fee Structure.

8.       No freebees.

1.       Poor and ill-maintained infrastructure for Classroom, Library, Laboratory and Playground.

2.       Old way of teaching.

3.       Experienced, unqualified teachers and poor student to teacher ratio.

4.       No Extra Curricular activity.

5.       Poor utilization of School area.

6.       No / Dirty Toilets.

7.       Very Low Fee Structure

8.       Free Midday meal, free aids.

 

Government Schools

—————————-

Indian government puts in their effort to ensure quality education to each and every individual. They construct schools and colleges, they appoint teachers, they provide mid day meal, they provide free education / aids to the underprivileged students, they also put TV Commercials to call Children to the school.

So, in a nutshell our government puts in substantial amount of money and other resources to ensure that they impart proper education to the students.

But even after all these efforts students of a government school stand far behind the private school student.

Following could be the influential factors which are hindrances in the path of a student’s development in a government school:

  1. Poor mindset of administration in a government school.
  2. Poor quality of teachers.
  3. Poor Student to teacher ratio.
  4. Poor infrastructure of the school.
  5. No extracurricular activity in the school.
  6. Poor economic and social condition of students.
  7. Lack of synchronization between the Government and Schools.

 

If the above factors could be tuned in to the perfection I am very much sure that more students from Government schools will be able to realize their childhood dreams and can contribute in building a better society.

” बेटा, बड़े होकर तुम क्या बनोगे ? “

” बेटा,  बड़े होकर तुम क्या बनोगे ? “

यह एक साधारण सा सवाल है जो हम सभी एक छोटे बच्चे से पूछते हैं.

माता-पिता ही बच्चो को बताते हैं की उनका बच्चा बड़ा हो कर क्या बनेगा और बच्चे भी वही जवाब देते हैं जो उनके माता-पिता उन्हे सिखाते हैं. और जब माता-पिता अपने बच्चो का जवाब दूसरो के सामने सुनते हैं तो उनका सीना काफ़ी गर्व से चौड़ा हो जाता है.

बच्चे जैसे जैसे बड़े होते हैं, उन्हे अपनी रूचि के बारे में पता चलता है और वो भी सोचने लगते हैं की उन्हे क्या करना है.

वो बच्चे काफ़ी भाग्यशाली होते हैं जिनके घर में एक ऐसा गार्डियन होता है जो सही वक़्त पे बच्चो को मार्गदर्शन देते है और बच्चे उनका अनुसरण करते हैं और अक्सर अपनी मंज़िल तक पहुच जाते हैं.

पर सभी बच्चे भाग्यशाली नही होते हैं और कई बच्चे ऐसे होते हैं जिन्हे सही मार्गदर्शन ना तो स्कूल में मिलता है, ना ही घर में और ना ही समाज में और ऐसे बच्चे हमेशा असमंजस में रहते हैं और अक्सर अपने मार्ग से भटक जाते हैं.

जानकारी के अभाव के कारण इनके लिए सपने देखना भी असंभव सा हो जाता है ऐसे लोग अपने आस पास के लोगो का बस अनुसरण करने लगते हैं. अगर वो कॉलेज में दाखिला भी लेते हैं तो ये देखते हैं की उनके साथ वाला किस कोर्स में दाखिला ले रहा है और बस उसके साथ हो लेते हैं.

कई बार वो ऐसे विषय चुन लेते हैं जिनमें उनकी रूचि नही होती है और यहीं से सुरू हो जाती है भटकाओ.

जब विषय ही उनके पसंद का नही होता है तो धीरे-धीरे उनकी पढ़ाई से रूचि ख़त्महो जाती है और इसके परिणाम स्वरूप कई तो अपनी पढ़ाई बीच में ही छोड़ देते हैं.

और जो किसी तरह पढ़ाई पूरी कर लेते हैं उनका ज्ञान अधूरा होता है और इसके अभाव में उन्हे अपनी मंज़िल तक पहुँचने में काफ़ी कठिनाइयो का सामना करना पड़ता हैं. कुछ जो थोरे मेहनती और भाग्यशाली होते हैं वो तो अपनी मंज़िल तक पहुच जाते हैं पर अक्सर ऐसे लोग अपनी मंज़िल तक नही पहुच पाते और अपना कीमती समय गँवा देते हैं.

हम सभी इसी समाज में रहते हैं. तो क्या ये हमारी ज़िम्मेदारी नही है की हम अपने समाज के लिए कुछ करें और ऐसे लोगो की मदद करें.

अगर आप  उनसे अपनी जानकारी साझा करते हैं तो उनका आत्मविश्वास और बढ़ेगा और अपने जीवन के लक्ष्य को निर्धारण करने और पूरा करने में उन्हे आसानी होगी.

मेरी आप सभी से गुज़ारिश है की अपने बहुमूल्य समय का कुछ हिस्सा ऐसे बच्चो के लिए निकालें और हमारे देश को उन्नत बनाने में अपना योगदान दें.

Life beyond SSC, IBPS, UPSC, RRB

We wonder why Graduates from Universities of midtown and small cities are not getting proper jobs on time. Why after Graduation Most of the Students are planning for their career in Government Sector Job? Why they are not interested in doing Jobs in Private Sector? Why they are forced to do jobs, which is not of their level of Education? Why most of the people think of becoming only Doctors, Engineers, P.O.s, etc.? Why People don’t think of a career in lots of other sectors having lucrative career opportunities?

It’s not that Students are not meritorious. It is not that faculties are not competent. It is not that students are not interested in a better career. But this is the Poor Infrastructure, Poor family Background and Poor Information System of the Students which are stopping their feet in moving towards a better future.

Even I started my career at the age of 19 and did the most common mistake that others do, due to lack of Information and Guidance. I left my Graduation for Job in the year 1998 and again I started Graduation in the year 2002 after 04 years in job. Sometime we think this mistake as one of the biggest mistakes in my life. If I could have completed my graduation in time I could have achieved more than what I have now. But again this is true that people learn from their own mistakes and from others so we can share our experiences and skills with you people and could stop others in committing same mistakes that I did few years ago.

We are very much interested to share our experience and skills with young generation and help them in taking right decision for their better career.

We discussed with our friends, some of the college going students and their faculties, while designing a program to address students who are not clear about their career path and career goal. Even if some of the students had set their career goal. They are not able to figure out the right path to achieve these goals.
We have gone through various websites and search engines to get the information about the various opportunities available in India and we were surprised to know some of the facts that we are not aware of. In our country there are so many sectors where is scarcity for right kind of employee. We should know those sectors and look forward to get in at right time. We need to be offensive rather defensive in terms of getting a better job. Our offensive nature can only lead us towards a better future and career in life.

Worlds most prestigious business magazine have done research work in finding out some of the profession in India where there is scarcity of manpower and the top ten jobs are like:

1. Sales representative,
2. IT Programmers & Developers,
3. Accountants,
4. Marketing & Public relation executives,
5. Sales Managers,
6. Engineering & Technical Manager,
7. IT Managers & Project Managers,
8. Engineers,
9. Administrative Assistants & Personal Assistants and
10. Teachers.

Growth of any place (A Village, A City, A State, A Country, The whole world) depends upon the young generation. There role is vital in shaping the society where we live. To develop a good society our young generation needs to be aware of current trends and technologies, Better Opportunities and more important thing is that they should be educated in such a way that they can compete globally.

Our objective is to groom students and develop awareness among them towards their general studies and objective and make them successful in their career.

Our program includes:

o Provide Information about various job opportunities available in India & Abroad.
o Develop Competitive Environment between Students to think about the available opportunities for their career.
o Provide information about various Academic / Professional courses.
o Assist them in developing personality and communication skill.
o Assist them in setting right career Goal / Objective.
o Assist them in selecting the best path to achieve career Objective.

Journey to 35

Journey to 35

I Thought of writing this article because I feel this can help others to learn from a normal person’s life journey to 35.

I remember my childhood memories not completely but up to certain extent. I was quite an introvert boy in my school & college days. I was not a very bright student and I don’t remember to have so many friends. I was just an average student who was able to pass the examinations and tests.

I was born in a missionary hospital in Pakribarawan (Gulani) which is in Nawada district of Bihar state in India.

My mother belongs to Pakribarawan and my father from Rajauli. Both the places are in same district, Nawada.

Rajauli is a beautiful place surrounded by hills and rivers. It is a Kasba (Small Town), located near to the National Highway (NH-31). Close to Rajauli is Koderma valley, once upon a time very famous for Mica Mines. Most of the tourist places in Bihar including Bodhgaya, Rajgir, Nalanda, Kakolat Fall are located close to Rajauli (within 100 Kms.).

My grandfather, father and uncles were having a joint business and they had a very famous Sweet shop. famous for manufacturing (Balushahi) a very famous sweet of Rajauli. They also use to manufacture & sell some other seasonal sweets like Maska, Lai, Batasa, Tilkut etc.

I spent 8 years of my childhood in Rajauli and done my primary education till Std. III. While in Rajauli I used to play all those games including, Gilli – Danda, Kancha, Lattu, Patangbaji etc.

My father left Rajauli, when I was 8 years old we moved to Chas, which is in Bokaro district of present state Jharkhand (previously Bihar) .

At Chas, I got my admission in a small convent school (Semi English medium) in STD-III.

Being come from a village school my knowledge of English was ZERO. I was not able to read or write English words and often got punished because of that. There was one advantage I was carrying, I was good in Mathematics and Hindi but the problem was same I was not able to understand the English text mentioned in the books.

My parents were not well educated and were not able to help me in my studies and so they arranged a tutor for me. He was very strict and often punished me for even small mistakes.

Because of regular punishments in school and without any motivation I started feeling myself inferior and low.

I continued my study till Std.-VIII in the same school. That school’s syllabus was also very strange. I don’t know whether you will believe or not, that school used to teach Std. VII and Std. VIII syllabus in a single year and they used to call that batch as Special -1 and I also studied like that.

With this fast track course my basic knowledge level was really poor.

I got admission in a Senior Secondary School of Bihar Board in the year 1993. That School taught me something which ruined my several years.

My school was around 3 Kms. Away from my house and there was no direct transport my house. I used to get Rs. 10/- as pocket money per week from my parents whereas transportation cost was Rs. 1/- for the to and fro journey.

I have so many things to write here about those days but it is making me weaker. Please excuse me for not sharing that information, now.

That vivid picture of my school and environment is so scary that I can’t even think of recommending that school to any of my known children.

The saddest part is that being a Government School there was NO discipline. Teachers had no control about the attendance or movement of students in the school.

I fall prey of some bad habits which took my precious years in junk. I met couple of boys who were not into studies but were into everything else. Since my pocket money was low they used to spend for me or some time I took loan from them and repaying to them was really painful.

After Passing Std. IX, I joined a coaching class which was run by some of the good tutors, but my problem was same. I used to hesitate asking the teachers for any doubts.

Somehow I passed my Matriculation in 2nd Division with bare minimum marks in the year 1995.

Even after getting lowest marks in science I took admission in Intermediate in Science to study Physics, Chemistry and Math and joined coaching classes also which was run by the college professors. I also took a daring step to study the subject in English medium and purchased a Dictionary along with my academic books to understand the complicated words.

College professors were good and I was punctual in studies as well. But the same problem prevailed in my studies. I used to hesitate a lot in clearing my doubts from the teachers and my teachers were also having less interest in understanding my doubts.

There were papers like co-ordinate geometry; I still don’t know anything about that subject. Although my professors were good, I hesitated in clarifying my doubts.

I still remember, during my final second year exam I did really bad in the practical examination of Chemistry and I was very nervous. Some of my friend told me to bribe the professor for getting the marks and I dared and meet him with my problem. Though I could not pay him as committed I got good marks in the practical examination.

Somehow I cleared my Intermediate in Science with Physics, Chemistry, Math and computer as additional subject with 2nd Division in the year 1997.

After completing my I. Sc. (PCM), I started preparing for the entrance test for engineering. I also took admission in B.Sc. (Math Hons.).

One of my cousins was doing a diploma course in computer software, encouraged me to go for the course and my parents also supported me in going for it.

I took admission in the course and had a great interest in learning software programming using Foxpro and dbase. I used to spend most of my time in learning about computer and software.
I paid very less interest in B.Sc. and as expected I failed in the B.Sc. (1st year exam) which I didn’t inform my parents.
In the year 1999, I went to Kolkata to do a short term job oriented computer course and after completion of the course I got a Job of Computer Faculty at Agartala in a very famous institute. I worked there for almost one year during year 2000.

I came back to Chas and joined another famous computer training institute as a computer faculty and worked for almost one year during 2001. During that period I used to take classes for all high end software courses like Java, Oracle, Visual Basic, C++ etc.

When I was in Bokaro I met with some of the guys who were interested in establishing their own institute and wanted me to join them as a partner. Without giving a second though I said yes to them and joined their partnership.

We started our own institute in a very remote place where people even did not know how to write and read English. I was not financial able to support this business and it was their responsibility but they failed in bringing the fund. Somehow I landed in a big trap and felt suffocated, I was not able to earn my own food but I gave my 100% to it and finally quit the partnership in the year 2002.

I joined my maternal uncle’s business in the year 2002 as an accountant and also restarted my studies. I took admission in a college to study B.Com. (Acct. Hons.). I had a freedom of not attending the classes but I joined a coaching institute to study the subject. My uncle was liberal and allowed me sufficient time to study.

In the year 2004 I met with few guys who had some Idea of earning quick money I fell into the trap and lost huge amount of my parents hard earned money and lost one year of my studies as well. Being in the job in my uncle’s company I completed my Graduation with 2nd Division in the year 2006.

I Did a Computer networking course (CCNA) in the year 2006 and tried to find a job in New Delhi but couldn’t get a job after spending almost 15 days in Delhi and finally I came back to Chas.

Later on I took admission to MBA in the year 2008 and studied seriously. Simultaneously, I also started my own business in the year 2009 with a friend and I infused my savings into it.

I started a consultancy to offer marketing and sales services to some of the well known manufactures to sell their products in the market.

My friend was not very much interested in this venture and he quit within a year.

I completed my MBA in marketing as core subject in the January 2011.

I got married in November 2012.

Because of turbulence in business scenario and increased liabilities I closed my business and shifted to Bangalore in March 2013.

I worked in a mechanical company as Senior Marketing executive travelled all across India and visited almost all the petroleum refineries.

Later on I joined Somany Ceramics Limited in September 2015 and currently I am working there as Area Sales manager in Government project.

Now I am 35 Years old and can analyze my own mistakes.
