...Δ INDIANS MIGHT FIND THIS INTERESTING Δ... lot of reasons behind why our country, India lacks behind from the powerful countries like the States, some of the European countries, China etc. due to may factors which we do notice each and every time but can't do anything, only just blame our government 😐
¦¦ There are
• In addition to those factors I feel the sorry state of our primary education/schooling is the main culprit.
•The kid that memorizes formulae is smart.
But the kid that tries to understand a formula and derive it is slow.
•The kid that memorizes tables, theorems, formulae and solves all the problems quickly is smart and good at math.
But the kid that reads proofs of theorems, takes his own time to solve a problem trying to inspect all the aspects of that problem is slow
•The kid that has memorized the Dictionary, Bhagwad Gita etc is super intelligent.
But the kid that asks questions out of curiosity is annoying and dumb.
•Every bright kid dreams of becoming an IAS officer, doctor, engineer of any field.
But very few dream of going through the fields which are related to our agriculture, our economy, our cultural appropriation.
•We equate the fluency in English to the intelligence.
•We basically have screwed-up notions about what intelligence and creativity is.
•No wonder we are lagging behind in R&D and innovation.
the reasons which I thought were quite normal as I am just a student who thinks like a student, not like a Ted talk speaker. There are further more problems which are always in our development track, and we are still finding their solutions.
