Doberman and Indian education system
Doberman is considered to be one of the most obedient dogs in the world. Once there was a sick Doberman. The owner of the Doberman took it to a nearby veterinary hospital. Doctor in the veterinary hospital examined the dog and said that, the dog needs a medicine to be given two times. One this week and another medicine next week. The owner agreed. To pour medicine inside dog’s mouth it involved lots of manly effort. Three person caught the body of the Doberman and two other person from the hospital caught the mouth wide open for the doctor to pour the medicine inside the mouth. With lots of struggle doctor was successful in pouring the medicine inside the mouth.
Next week dog was again taken to the hospital and examined by the doctor. Doctor called his assistants to make arrangement to give medicine to the dog as planned. As usual three person caught the body and two person opened the mouth. When doctor came to pour the medicine inside the mouth, the dog moved a bit. The medicine spilled in the floor. When all the 5 person released their hands from the dog, it automatically licked the medicine from the floor fully. Then only everyone realized that the problem is not with the dog or giving medicine to the dog. But the problem is the way by which medicine is given to the dog.
Our Indian education system is in the same way. No one here is unwilling to learn things. They refuse to learn because of the way by which the education is forced upon them. Like the dog story, the fundamental problem is with the education system and not with the students who learn it.
