The world was really blessed when people like Albert Einstein were born, who gave so much to the world, so much to learn, so much to see. People like him have an extraordinary vision and out of the box thinking. He was so inspiring, his quotes and his works. His one such quote still inspires many, but also taunts the education system in some areas.
I live in India and I’m a student, so I’ve observed how the education system has been here. It’s like a fixed path, walking on which is a necessity. The blurry epitome of the system is that you’ve got to get your undergraduate degrees so that you may pursue what you want, till then, you go with the crowd. It’s not 100% true before some people disagree to it, but for most of the part it is.
There are numerous people with special talents in India, and understandably so being the second largest populated country in the world. But some of those, don’t have resources, some don’t get to show it due to the present system and those who have the resources, the money and all the extra facilities are the ones who are not so special. Ironical a bit, but yes.
I may not be too experienced or old to comment more on my country’s education system, which is thankfully getting a bit better but at a slow pace, so I would just come back to Einstein.
Albert Einstein was an ocean of knowledge and is acknowledged by the whole world for his tremendous works in the field of science. But the man was more than just science, he knew about the world, he understood it. He understood people’s minds. And that’s why he said this amazing quote:
“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
A quote which always inspires and will continue to do so.
