The structure of education in India over the last 75 years is the same as that imposed on India by the British almost 200 years ago. The purpose of his education was only to form a group of G-Huzur Babus. The same thing is happening today. Our well-educated leaders are living proof of that.
Speaking at the All India Education Summit in Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the British colonial education system and urged academics across the country to make the Indian education system research-oriented to boost the country’s economic and social development. As far as the Prime Minister is concerned, he is right, but the present Prime Minister and all the previous Prime Ministers should be asked what necessary and radical changes they have made in the field of education.
The structure of education in India over the last 75 years is the same as that imposed on India by the British almost 200 years ago. The purpose of his education was only to form a group of G-Huzur Babus. The same thing is happening today. Our well-educated leaders are living proof of that. How many leaders of the country are only degree holders and how many are really educated and intellectual? That is why they are forced to do the work of bureaucrats. Our bureaucrats are also British mint coins. They have a chair for the government, not for service. This is the reason why formal democracy prevails in India, but in fact colonialism is ingrained in our parts.

The Prime Minister is proud to say that the number of hospitals has increased by 70 per cent during his rule, but someone asks him what is the condition of these hospitals and who has access to treatment? This method of treatment created by the British must be accepted if it is beneficial, but one would say that in 75 years, how much progress has been made in Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Hakimi-Unani medicine? How much attention has the government paid to research in them and their laboratories? Over the last hundred years, Western allopathy has advanced itself through research and in comparison, all traditional medicine has become weaker. If our governments pay more attention to research in education and medicine and complete these two basic tasks through self-language, then in the next few years, India can stand firm in the competition of the advanced nations of the world.
If both education and medicine are affordable and accessible, millions of people in the country will not only be able to escape everyday fraud, India will soon become a superpower and incredibly prosperous. Whatever 8-10 nations in the world are considered powerful and prosperous, if you study them closely, you will find that in the last 100 years they have become the only ones, as they have focused most on their education and medicine. .
