5 Things that an Indian student never learnt

Education in India is not for the faint-hearted. In fact, it has always been like this, pressure-filled. Where kids are pushed harder and harder which makes education more like a cough syrup in India.

We fail hugely to gain success in the world market as we still want to stick with the education system that the colonial masters made to produce clerks and civil servants. It’s time we evolve or else the following problems found in current Indian students would continue to plague even the coming generations.

  1. Read more; Why?

India wouldn’t have become such a great nation if Gandhi and Nehru were running behind marks. Our parents and teachers put aside our common sense and judge our intelligence based on how much content we could vomit out on exam sheet.

Thus, Indian students never learned to read extra as education always remained marks bound and they never read things that were not “in syllabus”.

  1. Theory fails, practice remains!

Our education system wants to gear and test knowledge at every level but totally sidelines the importance of teaching skills. As they say, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for one day, teach him how to catch a fish and you have fed him for a lifetime.” But in India, rote learning and memorization are what prevails. We encourage cramming so much that the lifelong learning based on a student’s aptitude is lost.

Our engineers fail to grab high profile jobs as they search for answer scripts instead of revamping their imagination. Thus I feel that Indian students definitely never learned how to cope with problems in a practical way and are reduced to bookworms.

  1. Job-oriented, not Goal-oriented

“India is a country where people first become engineers, and then they decide what they want to do in life.”

For us, education is very closely related to money. That is why; one would find in India that people don’t follow their passion instead they run behind degrees that can fetch them good jobs in future. However, they fail to understand that lack of interest would not achieve them the prowess that is required in any field. People have to learn that education is not degree-bound but it goes beyond it and here I would like to quote Amir from 3 idiots (which I totally believe and agree with),

“ kaabil Bano, kamyabi jhak maar ke piche aaegi”

  1. Rat-race; I doubt if anyone will ever win it

One is healthy competition and other is what happens in India. Basically, a rat race is when you don’t have a goal and start running behind something merely because someone else is running behind it. Slowly and slowly, there is a gush of people running towards the unknown object. So, breathe and think if you have also chosen someone else’s goal as yours or are you striving for the product.

  1. Professionalism; What’s that again?

We took our assignments, home-work, teachers, and education as a whole lightly, and they took us lightly. Amidst all this ‘lightness’, we missed learning the essence of education, being diligent and professional about one’s work. And because our education system was always so laid back where no one really cared for what we learned (nor did we cared), we forgot to learn the most important etiquette of life.

And later when we enter the professional world, we compare ourselves with others and wonder what went wrong!

Why College Students Dropout: Don’t Let it Happen to You

Isn’t college the best time of our lives? Yes! It certainly is. But not for all. There are students who despite desperately wanting to join college cannot do so. Judging them won’t be right because they have their own set of reasons. There could be a chance that either you are the one who has to dropout or you might be the one who is eventually thinking too. Either way, don’t let that happen to you. Here are the reasons why college students mostly dropout:

  • Money issues

Finance is one of the most common reason, why people dropout. College is surely expensive and not everyone has appropriate and sufficient funds for the same. But don’t let money issues get in way of your education. Either start saving initially or you can talk to college authorities for various scholarships and aids.

  • In need of full-time job

You might think that college is a waste of time and you should start earning. Well, you might not realize this now but sometime in future that a degree is a must. Don’t let the want of job get in between your degree. Get a degree and you will surely earn more than what you will earn without it.

  • Family issues

Oh! That’s a tough one. There could be some problem in the family that might be leading you to drop out of the college, but please don’t. The situations could be unavoidable but there is always a middle way out. Find it and get going for your degree.

  • Establishing a startup

Right! Startups are the new trend and apparently, almost every student wants to start a business without completing the degree. Your idea might be innovative, creative and the best, but please don’t opt out of college for the same. What if the startup doesn’t go well? You need to have a backup, don’t you?

giphy

If you think college would be really easy, then you are wrong. It is totally a different place than school. Your environment, friends, campus, everything is going to change. It is going to be stressful, but why dropout? You are a warrior and you know it, so get up and face everything that lies ahead. Just relax because When you get the degree in your hand, all the stress you have had will be worth it.

  • Life outside class looks fun

Well definitely! the life you are leading outside the classroom is fun and people dropout because they don’t enjoy being in a class. But have you tried it out? Make more friends in your classroom and the life inside classroom would be much more fun than outside. Don’t dropout just for the fun of a few days. You don’t want to spend the future days regretting about the fun you had outside instead of attending class. Believe us, getting a degree is much more fun.

No matter what the reason is, Just Breathe. Think and you will definitely find a way out of the trouble you are in. If you are willfully opting out of the college, our suggestion would be not to do so. Get a degree and then you can do whatever you want. College gives you security for future, so why not secure it? Think before coming to a decision because you don’t want yourself to be regretting about dropping out few years down the line.

Mythology and Alien Existence

Do aliens really exist? This is that one question that has been the matter of debate and controversy for centuries. From Roswell to Suffolk’s Rendlesham Forest, there have been sightings which the so-called UFO hunters have quantified as a proof of extra-terrestrial life.

A survey conducted in 24 countries has come up with findings that suggest that nearly half of the humans believe in alien life and want to make contact. This helps to explain the lasting popularity of the “Star Wars” franchise 40 years after the first movie was screened. Avengers or Avatar for that matter is possibly the highest grossing movies of all times which again leads us to accept the fact that we somehow believe that we are not alone.

Darwin’s theories tell us about the shape alien life will take. A new study from scientists at the University of Oxford found out that All aliens must evolve and that gives us something to look for.  But then there is another question that perplexes me. Does our Mythology (which we tend to believe in more than the living humans around us)  suggest the existence of Extraterrestrial life? Let’s explore!

Bible

Bible 2

With about 31% population of the world following Christianity, Bible is one of the most sought-after mythologies which has many references to other-worldly beings and flying saucers. In One passage from the books of Infancy and Protevangelion, which is taken from The Lost Books of the Bible describes the same experience many abductees face in our times, where everything stopped and all surrounding people being “switched off.” But then there are another set of people who have a different interpretation of the same and find no reason to accept that the Bible depicts the existence of Alien life.

Quran:

Qur’an Chapter 40 Verse 57
The creation of the heavens and the earth is definitely a greater thing
than a creation of mankind, however, most of mankind know not.

Quran 1

Quran has a similar take on the Alien matter. It gives us a description of multitudes of other earth where God’s commandments are coming one after another as these other earth mature at different times. The word seven is used in following verses in the Quran to denote a very large number more like infinite.

Quran Chapter 65 verse 12
God it is who has created seven heavens, and similar number of earth, The commandments come down among them slowly, that you may know that God is Able to do all things And that God surrounds all things in knowledge

Quran 2

The idea that there is life elsewhere in the universe  was derived from the Prophet Mohammad when he told the Muslims, “When you sit down in the prayer for the Attahiyat and say: “Peace be upon us, and the righteous servants of Allah” you actually send peace on all the righteous people living on the Earth and in the heavens.” which clearly implies that all type of people, good and bad live in the other worlds as they live on our Earth.

Mahabharata / Ramayana / Veda:

Hindu

Gods in Hindu mythology wore animal masks to conceal their identities with chariots of fire representing UFOs of one kind or another , Gods mating with human women to create the human race in their image , Blue star gods ( The blue blood or royal bloodlines descended directly from the gods) and the mythical battles of Heaven and Earth , From the existence of the likes Of Brahma , Vishnu and Mahesh to Ram & Krishna to Ravana & Kans, all give us references regarding the existence of Ancient Aliens (Living Beings from A different Planet or Realm).

Excerpts :
“All of the above-mentioned incarnations are either plenary portions or portions of the plenary portions of the Lord, but Lord Sri Krishna is the original Personality of Godhead. All of them appear on planets whenever there is a disturbance created by the atheists. The Lord incarnates to protect the theists.” ( Srimad Bhagavatam 1:3:28)
and,
“Krishna, who is known as Govinda is the Supreme Godhead. He has an eternal blissful spiritual body. He is the origin of all. He has no other origin and He is the prime cause of all causes.” (Brahma Samhita, 5:1)

With references like such, it is always beyond the human mind to believe or not to which leaves me with another Question. Do they still Exist? Only time will tell.  Till then let’s go back to Netflix & chill with Star Wars. 😋

12 Extremely Scintillating Urdu Words That Will Captivate Your Inner Essence

27th December 2017 marked the 220th Birth Anniversary of Legendary Urdu Poet Mirza Ghalib. If you’ve ever been a love-lorn aashiq, chances are the Agra-born master of Urdu literature would have been your breakup-buddy, with his eternal shayaris out to soothe the most distraught of souls. Like this epic couplet epitomizing the pain of having desires unfulfilled despite giving your best –

Hazaron khwahishen aisi ki har khwahish pe dam nikle,

bahut nikle mere armaan lekin phir bhi kam nikle

The legacy he left behind is not just limited to the poetry that still reverberates in mushairas and Atif Aslam songs. He also introduced to the entire world the undying magic of a language whose words alone have the power to make a human touch his innermost essence. Words more beautiful than any human to ever roam the earth. Words that singers, even 200 years later, incorporate in their songs. We bring to you 12 such Urdu words immortalized by the Great Ghalib, which may always be translated from one language to another, but never understood quite as deeply…

1) Aagaaz

aagaaz

Beginning of a new day, a new story, a new path of life…

2) Alfaaz

Alfaaz

In a broader sense, everything that man says, writes or expresses, in whichever way. Deep right?

3) Beshumaar

beshumaar

Reject anyone who says “I love you to the moon and back!”. You don’t need or deserve such a limited amount of love. From now, it’s Beshumaaror nothing.

4) Husn

husn

One word. One word to define all the females you ever liked. We warned you, Urdu is insanely and amazingly deep!

5) Inaayat

Inaayat

A blessing not just limited to the one that you seek from The Almighty. Sometimes, a blessing can be as simple as a human who walked into your life and transformed it for the best…

6) Justuju

Justuju

Also, a deep, inherent desire. Something you have sought all your life. A concept not unlike the Mirror of Erised as envisioned in Harry Potter. Only, 200 years its’ original…

7) Mukammal

mukammal

Ever looked at someone, noticed every single detail about them, and felt a deep sense of attraction throbbing through your veins as you fall in love with everything they are and do? Yes, that’s the word to describe the one who just popped into your head reading the above line.

8) Nazakat

Nazakat

Some people just have that sense of tenderness about them. An innocent twinkle in the eyes, with every little movement that they make nothing less than a dance full of grace. With a sense of an aura that engulfs, and yet, exudes the softness that lies within.

9) Qayamat

qayamat

The literal translation goes “The Doomsday” a concept similar to The Judgement Day, where every last man on earth is summoned to the gates of heaven for judgement. However, it is most commonly used in a metaphorical sense, to depict something that has caused intense grievance, or poses a mammoth difficulty/hurdle along your path. So yes, feel free to use the word to describe your Semester grades too.

PS – Who knew even a word with such a terrible meaning could sound so pleasing? That’s the beauty of the language!

10) Qurbat

Qurbat

Humans are perhaps the only animals that have the ability to form bonds and connections by being in close proximity to one another. And yet, there is no word that can describe the hundreds of emotions like love, attraction, desire, pleasure, vulnerability, etc that two humans feel as their souls intertwine with each other, even as their bodies do the same. No word in any other language, of course. Trust Urdu to have a solution to every matter of the heart!

11) Ruh

Ruh

In a broader sense, the word can also be used to describe the deepest depths of the heart. After all, that’s where our soul lies, isn’t it?

12) Zehnaseeb

Zehnaseeb

Some people walk into your life, and suddenly, everything starts falling to place. Not because they tried doing so, but it just happens. Like a magical charm. Call them good luck, or better still, call them the zehnaseeb of your life!

Just like you, we too are tempted to join an Urdu class right away and learn enough of the language to create shayaris of our own. One thing is certain – none of us will ever be able to recreate the magic that Mirza Asadullah Baig Khan – the Ghalib – wove around. Maybe, we’ll just be as sufficiently good enough to impress the one we love most. Just need to try hard, because the language has all the words waiting for us! Scintillating!

7 Annoying Moments You Will Relate To Every Time You’re in The Exam Hall

To the one reading this right now – our deepest condolences lie with you. We know the horrors you’ve undergone and the hell that you’re going through. Been there, done that. Yes, we’re talking of exams – those damned things invented by Satan himself to make poor little kids like us die not another, but every other day! The wretched feeling of writing an exam is no alien to any of us. Which is why we’re sure you would relate to these 7 extremely annoying moments we all endured (or continue to) while scribbling down those pages!

1) “Dillon ka shooter hai mera scooter, dillon ka shooter! Ah! Ah!”

get outta my head

The question that the paper asks – “What is the Keynesian theory of aggregate demand?” The answer that your brain comes up with – some Dhinchak lyrics of a dhinchak song! Anyone who has suffered from this disease called ‘songstuckitis’ would know how horrible it is when you’re desperately trying to think of answers and all that your scumbag brain can do is replay the lyrics of an annoying song! To make matters worse, it is often just that 1 sentence that keeps playing on loop over and over again; of a song that you have no recollection whatsoever of having heard in the recent past. And yet, it pops up like an un-skippable youtube ad and makes you want to shoot yourself in the head!

sk haider

2) “Ma’am Supplement!”

hermione

2 words. 2 magical words that make you want to punch 2 people at once – the nerd who asked for the supplement 10 minutes into the exam, and then yourself for not knowing what to write unlike the nerd! Even as you’re scratching your head, still trying to figure out whether to do objectives first, there will always be that one guy/girl who will face the wrath of a hundred other losers like you by screaming those damned words! Dork!

3) “Palat! Palat!”

palat

“Agar who mera sacha dost hai, toh who palatke meri help zaroor karega! Palat! Palat!..” goes your mind silently as you look desperately towards your friend in search of some answers. But damn! That dungbeetle of a friend who called you last night to say “yaar maine haath bhi nahi lagaya book ko” is now going Ferrari with his writing even as you keep looking towards him hoping he’d turn around and help you. LOOK AT ME YOU FILTHY FAKE FRIEND! HELP ME OR I’LL KNOCK YOUR TEETH OFF! And yet, he doesn’t…

4) The One That Just Won’t Shut Up!

shutup

There are only 2 types of invigilators in the world – the normal ones who ask you once before the exam to not cheat (haha sure!) and not carry phones with you. And then those idiots who think shouting continuously, even as the exam has already commenced, is the only way to drive home the message of not cheating. Yes, you know you’ve had those moments – when all you wanted to do was grab him by the neck and scream in his face “Shut the **** up! We’re trying to concentrate for ****’s sake!” If only! But then such is the travesty of life…

5) When you know you don’t know what you know

i dont know

A F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan might have been able to follow this train of thoughts. And if you’re not one (get a life!), here’s what we mean – that moment when you can recollect what page number the answer was on… you can even recollect its positioning on the page… but, you can’t recollect the words! That frustration when you know read and prepared that answer but just can’t remember the damned words! Relatable much?

6) “Somebody wants you… somebody needs you… that somebody’s ME!”

hum saath saath hai

So you’re done writing down whatever your mind could possibly allow you to, and think about handing over the answer sheet to the examiner, but wait! It’s still half an hour to go till the bell and no one has left as yet. You look around and see everyone gushing their pens about like they still have tonnes to write and all you can think is “What!!! What the hell is everyone writing so much! I can’t be the only loser to finish so soon… somebody get up!!!” You desperately hope to have some company while walking out from the hall… away from all the prying, judges eyes screaming “haha loser!!”

7) Last ball, Dhoni goes for the hit… and BOWLED!

noooo

Let’s face it – it sucks to know that you’re not legendary! Dhoni can hit those last ball sixes and win the match, but when you try to do things last minute… the bell goes off and the invigilator starts screaming “Pens down everyone!” You try to squeeze in words thinking they will miraculously (and quite illogically!) fetch you additional marks… till the invigilator comes around, snatches away your paper and all it reads is gibberish like “Thɇƨƺˁ…”. If only they gave you 5 more minutes… you’d have made Einstein proud. Or so you think.

We’re sure we’ve riled you up by bringing out all these demons that haunt you during exams. Well, we can’t drive those demons away, so yes the annoyance is here to stay. But why fear, when TCF Pro is here! Check out, chill out and de-stress yourself with some quality reads! Also, save on that Jio data limit by having all information delivered to your doorstep, and instead, use that data for some good purpose. (We won’t suggest, but you know what to do with it!). Have fun. You know you’ve earned it!
