A child is just an illiterate, uncultivated and crude material, born in a world of vain desires, irrevocably rat- rally under the burdens, confined in a room, having been curved of their wing of imagination.
Then, I was a child, studying in village primary school, could escape in mango garden to play in recesses along a throng of my cozy friend, never imagined, we were last generation of happy childhood. Teacher taught us, counseled telling stories, reciting fairy tales covertly passed moral by those fables on Saturday afternoon, sitting under tree which firmly settled deep inside of our psyche. And more over, evening game in the yard of village big mason, lying in grandma’s lap, believed moon was running above the stagnant cloud and interminably asked orderly people until they tired of my reason and fancy which was floating in enormous sky unlike gazing in screens.
Anyway, I can’t weep of those past. Past brings always a sweet memory.
But here I talk about teacher, taught and parents relationship. These three are the pillar of any society. But nowadays, a third person has intruded in their territory stealthily and monitoring them being remain absent of scenario. He is absent but omniscient in their every decision.
I did my school, college watching my teachers, framed an ideal image of this profession. But after spending more than two years in teaching, I reach to conclusion that those ideological utopian imageries were just an imagery or truth, I don’t know now. But for present, it’s changed.
Mostly schools of this era is just a factory, children for them a product, parents are costumer and teacher is everything except teacher. Irony, this poor creature doesn’t know he is transformed into something else who is buried under clerical works.
A child is just like a barren field, a teacher is like firm, devoted and kind farmer who can transcend any lands into a fertile field. But nowadays, former commits suicides if he is interrupted in his job and deprived of his needs. If anyhow, a former has breathed his last, then, field produces mere thorny plant.
For better crops, farmer and field both should be needed liberty, nurture and proper caring. For both are complements for each other and report card of any society.
So better if rather focusing on rising graph, people focus on rising value in kids, one can set a better future. Neither picture is clear before us- a wilderness of education. You will have educated products but lose education.
