Reforms in the Educational industry & the other side to monetize the Market..

In a landmark decision in the educational industry the union minister for Human resource Development has given a nod to all the international universities to open campuses in India and hence opened up the gate for all the biggies in the educational institutes across the world to peep into the huge market in India. To call it a land mark decision I would not agree to what the minister has done is right. Because the Indian education industry is a much big market wherein the foreign players will definitely look at. But there is a question” is the foreign degree provided by the foreign university will keep the same value, if the same is obtained in India”. I personally would not agree to the fact. i remember my batch mates in MBA were looking for a degree from the Massachusetts or Harvard or Oxford but it was quite a tough task to get that. But people were doing that and there was a feeling of achievement and accomplishment after doing that degree. But once the decision is rolled out then my friends who have done a degree from an European or Australian university would definitely be little frustrated. But yes the degree from the top most colleges like the Harvard/Oxford will have their own repute & people in all age would strive to get that world-class education whether their campus is in India or anywhere else.

My question again; will any institute of that kind will be coming to India ? is there any criteria set for the universities to come into India or any other University in Libya or Ghana which my ancestors had no idea can come to teach us ? I am sure that the minister has no answer to that the except ” the cabinet committee is reviewing the final memorandum before it is explored.” Being under the WTO we cannot deny any university to open campus & run courses and hence can loose control of the private and anonymous universities to play with the future of our students. I would request the minister to get strict standards set so that good universities/Institutes can come to India to deliver world-class education. Secondly can we again strengthen our own educational system or existing Good universities at every state level to compete with the foreign players. If no then this step by the government is like a lethal weapon against our own education system. When we are diminishing the number of Deemed universities to keep private players out of the scene then how can you leave the platform all set for the foreign players to explore. If the Indian Economy is growing by 10-12% every FY then why cant we spend 4-6% of our GDP in strengthening our Education system which a developing country like ours must afford to fill up the requirement of skilled manpower which we foresee 10 years down the line ? Look at China who is investing nearly 6% of its GDP in education system for the last 8-10 years and as a result of which the foreign students’ number has substantially increased in number because of the uprising standard of education. Now its time to strengthen our existing education system, empower the IIT’s,IIM’s & other that level institutes, Open up new institutes of that repute and finally setting standards for all the foreign player in the industry to secure the future tutors else people will come, collect huge amounts in the name of any other university in Europe or somewhere else leaving us nowhere.

Ek ghadi ki kahani...

यह चेन्नई मैं मेरी पहली शर्दी है ... हलाकि मैं पिछले साल भी यहीं था मगर मैं शायद इस जलवायु मैं ठीक से अपने आप को ढाल नहीं पाया था. आज कल यहाँ सुबह की नींद बड़ी मजेदार लगती है और बिस्तर छोड़ने को मन नहीं करता.पर क्या करें सुबह सुबह ऑफिस भी तो जाना है ना तो उठाना पड़ता है.हाला की मेरे ऑफिस की कार्यकालिनी समय सुबह ९ बजे से लेके शाम के ६ बजे तक है मगर मैं क्या कहूँ मुझे अपनी आप पे शर्म अति है ये कहते हुए की मैं रोज़ १०- १०.३० से पहले ऑफिस नहीं पहंच पाता था.और क्यों की मैं खुद मानव संसाधन बिभाग मैं हूँ तो मुझे बड़ा अटपटा लगता था और शर्मिंदगी भी लगती थी. खैर एक दिन मेरे अन्दर का शेर जाग गया अचानक और मुझे बोला के बेटा अब उठ जा और कुछ जुगाड़ कर. तो मैंने पिछले रविवार को ही बाज़ार गया और एक अलार्म वाली घडी लेके आया.वैसे उसकी कुछ आबस्यक्ता  नहीं थी क्यों के मेरे घर के पास वाली चर्च से हर एक घंटे मैं अलार्म बजता रहता है. मगर क्या करें कुछ करना जो था, तो मैने एक बजने वाली घडी ले आया और उसे सबसे अधिक आवाज में चालू करके सो गया.  सुबह ६ बजे जैसे ही वो बजा मैं उठ खड़ा हुआ. सुबह की शांत बातावरण मैं मु…

Odia , Odisha & its people.

After years I tried my hands in writing a letter in Odia and believe me it was difficult to write as the finger movement needed much to work on the paper to write the fonts. For your knowledge i should tell you that unlike English the letters in oriya are much complicated and need a better effort to write a good hand-writing. But let me tell you it was really tough to get something on paper,forget about the handwriting.But one thing is for sure my fingers remembered the letters so correctly that i was surprised at times when i wrote conjoint letters. It took me 20-30 minutes to write a full page letter expressing my thought at that time. I managed to get an average handwriting & one can only manage to read & understand what I wrote.

I remember my School Days when I used to speak , read & write in Odia only and read English as a subject in the class. When somebody spoke good English then, people used to admire him with great respect &considered English as a better lang…

The epic story behind Lord Jagannath...

The epic story behind the the origin of Lord Jagannath goes back to ancient days when present day Lord Jagannath was being worshiped as Nila Madhava by a tribal head called Biswabasu. The name Nilamadhaba comes from the mountain that is always covered by the dense forest making it tougher for anyone to reach.The story goes, in the state of Malwa there was a king called Indradyumna who was an ardent devotee of lord Vishnu.His utter devotion landed him to see Lod Vishnu in his manly eyes and he in his prayers pleaded the lord to give him Darhan. After long in a divine dream he was told that Lord Vishnu can be seen in his best form in the state of then Utkala. The king then send Vidyapati to find & submit a report on Lord Vishnu. Bidyapati, after a very secret research got to know about Biswabasu & the lord Nilamadhaba , but upon request he denied to show him the way to Nilamadhaba. Failing to get the way to Nilamadhaba by hook or crook Bidyapari Decided to stay there and by pla…
