Our education system

Himanaya

As my class X Board Examinations are approaching, I often see people around me discussing about how they can get good marks in these examinations. No one talks about what they have actually learnt. All they care about is good grades.When I ask my classmates who scored decently in previous year’s examinations any question from the previous year’s syllabus they are seldom able to answer it. I blame such behaviour of students on our education system.


I say this because since the time we have started going to schools, all they teach us is that good grades are of utmost importance. They don’t teach the students to think diffrently, innovate and explore new things. All what they tell us to do is copy what is written on the board, mug up the entire syllabi and vomit what you have memorised on your answer sheet. Our education system solely focuses on…

Are we all racist and discriminatory in some way or the other?

Himanaya

Being an Indian, I often find people living around me accuse the Europeans and the Americans to be racist and hostile towards our ethnicity. Of course there are some people who are racist towards our ethnicity.The recent example being the whole T-Series vs Pewdiepie saga where people have turned aggressive against Indians calling them names and stereotyping them.When asked why do they do so, they say its just a joke. I want to tell them that being racist and disrespecting a certain ethnicity just cannot become a reason for laughter. However, I believe that such people constitute a very small amount when compared to the whole.


However, we Indians ourselves are racist in some way or another. For instance people living in Northern India are racist towards those living in South and vice-versa.People living in one part think that people living in the other part are uncultured, dirty and egoistical…

My Grumpy Valentines Day Comment To Us All

Would We Ever Know The Truth: If, We Ever Heard Such A Thing

 

The news out this morning is that Mr. Paul Manafort is in trouble with the Feds for lying again. Seriously, who would have ever thought such a thing, Paul Manafort lie? Didn’t President Trump’s former Lawyer have an issue with the truth? Speaking of our President and truth issues, how about His Son, Don Jr? Then of course we have our President who would no doubt rather cut down a Cherry Tree then to lie to all of us, right?

 

You may wonder why I have brought up know Serial Liars on Valentines Day, and that is a fair question. The reason is simple, today how many lies will be told? How much Chocolate and Roses does it take to cover up all the Little White Lies (and a few Whoppers) that we have told to our Spouse throughout the years?

 

Today, how many men will give Candy and Flowers to their wife, and to their girlfriend? Then there are the guys who don’t get their wife anything for Valentines Day, but he does manage to get them for his girlfriend (or boyfriend), ya never know. Then there are the real men who didn’t get his wife or their girlfriends anything because he spent all his money on Tequila at a Titty-Bar. Then of course there are you Ladies out there you know, it isn’t just an all boys club Ladies, some of you are all just as darn guilty as the empty jock straps are. Think of the dear sweet Wife who spends the day having sex with her boyfriend then goes out this evening for a ‘Special’ evening out with their Husband.

 

What I am trying to get at is this, in our Society today when people speak to you, in the back of your mind you already blew them off because you figured the best chance is their just Blowing Smoke? Does is ever bother you when you are being 100% honest about an issue with a person or people and you can tell they are not believing you? What I am saying is that in our Society today we tend to get lied to so often that we don’t recognize the truth on different issues even when that truth is standing right before us.
