Education for Bliss & Development: 26 ►Indianization Of Education

Published: 30.05.2018

Education is a value-building institution. When creative conception of this institution goes on edge, it loses its values and the culture disappears. Today, future of millions of students living in India is in dark. One of its reasons is Macaulayism of education. From the past five decades the educational system of Macale is prevalent in India, does it suit to Indian life style? This question has thrown challenges before the educationalists. To counter that challenge many commissions and committees were constituted. The personalities like Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, Dr. Tarachand. Dr. K. L. Shreemali, Dr. Daulat Singh Kothari, Acharya Ramamurthy gave so much time and worked to counter that challenge, but what was the result?

Development of Indian culture is required to be infused in education of Indian students. But where there is oblivion of mother tongue, motherland and spontaneous culture, then how culture can be developed there? Is it not something ironical where Indian children cannot read and speak their own country's languages? Those children are given more importance, who speaks English fluently. The future of those children are considered brighter, who do business or service in foreign countries. Those families are considered more progressive, who live in western life style. In such a situation who will care for Indian culture and civilization? Tamilians living in India have their own language and culture. Bengalis are having their own language and culture. Assamese, Bihari, Punjabi etc. of different states are more or less conscious about their language and culture. But who cares for India? Who has attraction towards Indianism? How helpless India has become because of ignorance. Indian culture and India's national language is becoming victim of negligence. Unless various states of India think about Indian prospective, talking about national integration will be just a formality only.

When there is a question about the national integration, it is getting weakened now due to rising disputes in the name of region, caste, communalism and language. I feel that today Indians are in minority in comparison to Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Jain, Punjabi, Assamese, Bengalis etc. There are how many persons who stand above to this entire fanatic attitude and feel proud to be called an Indian. Unless India becomes an undivided nation the dream of Indianization of education cannot be fulfilled. Unless the education is not Indianized, children's sleeping and working time cannot be Indianized. Their food habits cannot be Indianized. Supremacy of western culture will always continue on their dressing style. They will not develop intimacy with their parents and relatives. The culture of feeling fortunate in serving old parents is getting diminished. The respect towards religion and religious teachers will vanish away. There are so many things, which are desirable in this Indian context, will disappear. The Indianization of education is the direct solution to the problem.
