Why did I go to school for ten years? That is not a small time period. How can you waste 10 years of your life man? In these 10 years a lot of thing can happen and no need to explain, you are capable enough to imagine.
Did I go to school to learn a, b, c, d… or 123... .??? My parents taught me at home before I learnt them at school. There are a lot of things that are taught at school, the thing that we term ‘education’ we get at school and at home. Don’t say tech school or business school, they are there only to amalgamate tension to our lives.
In school we read a lot of things I would not use the word ‘learnt’. We read mathematics, science, social science, history, geography and civics. The teachers told about manners and a lot of things. Those little things we were taught in school are highly useful in our day to day life that we ignore.
But looking at the life it does not seem they have a value today. That schooling has lost its significance as we grew older. You think about it. Is not it true? There are numerous things that I can not put light on them but I can cite a few.
How many of you go to see the flag hoisting on Jan 26th or Aug 15th. They were very auspicious and energetic childhood days once, when you used to give slogans to the loudest of your voice.
In science we read about various causes of pollution and different kinds of pollution. Still people feel that burning the rubbish that is thrown in the dust bin will clean the locality. Don’t you have common sense that it pollutes the air?
We should not smoke, we should not hew tobacco. That we read in school and our teachers told us a long back. Who can remember things for a long time? They are just a burden on memory. (But I don’t find what people say, smoking can give you relieve from tension or pressure.)
Leave all these things; they don’t make any sense as we grow. That’s what our notion is. They were good when we were in school. Now we are grown ups. Time has changed. Who gives a damn about it?
If you had to become and an engineer or doctor what was the need to go to school. You could have learnt a, b, c, d… at home. That was not a hard task. Learning English words after knowing alphabets is easier. Then you would have joined Pre University College. It is so sad that you had to join school because it has become a rule. You must be regretting ‘why-did-I-go-2-school’ when it is not useful life any professional course.
