ACADEMICS FUN RETREAT (1)

We Start With Education

            Education, till now, is communication between the teacher and the taught, the trainer and the trained. This has been a long tradition since time immemorial. But it is a communication at unequal levels, therefore never perfect. From old Indian Gurukuls or the Plato’s Academy to present age it is everywhere the same.

            In between some innovations are made by educationalists like Maria Montessori in the West, Tarabai Modak and Anutai Wagh at Dahanu in India. They put in new ideas and practices to make the traditional system more fruitful and result-oriented. But basics remain the same. The teacher, the trainer is at the higher level in communication.

            First time, in human history on the name of the I.B. System the focus is shifted towards the taught, the trained and his enquiring, knowledgeability, etc. traits are given preference.

            But, this too is a focus on the other extreme.

            Do we recommend the blend? No.

            One thing is very clear, whatever may be the system, the subjects essential for growth are languages, mathematics, science, history, geography and the civics. The syllabus, too, are similar. Of course, there are subjects like art, craft, dance and music, but they are hobbies to be pursued separately.

            The order of subjects and their syllabi change. Naturally the language is first. But geography deserves to be second, history third, civics the next. Afterwards, mathematics and sciences follow.

            Grammar is the base of language. But the classical book on English Grammar penned down more than a hundred years ago by Wren and Martin starts with ‘Subject and predicate’. Grammar deserves to be focused properly.

            Geography plays the most important role in life. The trees and plants, soil and stone, water and water reservoirs, hills and dales around play important roles in existence. So far all these are not given due recognition. Instead, the focus is on the Himalayas, the Alps, the Ganges, the Amazon, etc.

            History is the foundation we stand erect upon. But focus is mostly upon such episodes and personality related least to our being.

            Civics is immediate concern with social reality. How to make it congenial to living deserves to be tackled first.

            Mathematics is basically arithmetic and training in logical approach in dealing with life. Additions and subtractions are the base. There should not be rote-learning there. But, even today, schools across the world go for rote-learning of tables. The figure zero has not yet got the deserved importance. We may not be aware of the fact that the Romans did not know the figure ‘zero’, therefore they were totally unable to write-down large numbers.

            Science and scientific temperament is essential for life. The availability of the facilities around is to be understood and utilized first. Rocket-science is important but the uses and misuses of local material is more than that.

            The child has to grow physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. Therefore, General Knowledge is necessary. He must have basic knowledge of sex and its role in life. Religion is to be understood in its emotional message and politics as the main governing factor and facilitator in life. How and why the growth of mankind could experience the kingships and the dictatorships, the aristocracies and the oligarchies, the democracies and the mobocracies must be included in studies.

            At present, a deep crisis is being focused in almost all branches of growth. We need to think a fresh without any prejudice. Gyanghar is a place dedicated to this cause. It has all the necessary facilities there to be exploited for the cause. ●


ACADEMICS FUN RETREAT (2)

Confidence to stand On one’s Feet

            After air, water and food, education is the most important need of mankind.

            We send our children to school and take it for granted that we have fulfilled our responsibilities. After the schooling is over we realize something is missing in our child.

            What is that something? It is confidence to stand on its own feet. Who is responsible for that? It is our carelessness which results in child’s frustration in life.

            What is the way out?

            Let us be sure why we educate our child, send it to school.

            The participation of guardians in the process of education is necessary for desired results. The different Educational Boards may be philosophically alright, their success must be gauged on their strength to make their students confident enough to stand on their own feet, to make them analytical in their approach to life.

            We shall discuss all this at Gyanghar!●


ACADEMICS FUN RETREAT (3)

Invitation For Deliberation

            The expectations of parents of school-going children are seldom fulfilled. Their complaints are many-

(1) The child is not interested in studies.

(2) He cannot read and write properly.

(3) He is poor in communication.

(4) He does not revise his lessons at home.

(5) His performance at school is poor.

(6) He is not obedient.

(7) Teachers neglect him.

(8) The money spent on his education is wasted.

(9) He does not even excel in extra-curricular activities, too.

            The tragedy is parents seek ready-made answers. But they will have to seek answers for themselves.

            Gyanghar organizes Academics Fun Retreat for this purpose. The parents get the opportunity to seek answers for their problems. They will have to find out:-

(1) What is education?

(2) What are parents’ expectations from it?

(3) What are their expectations from their children?

(4) What is their grudge against them?

(5) Is child aware of parents’ expectations and grudge?

(6) Do parents take regular visits to the school to track down the childrens’ progress there?

(7) Do they show sufficient appreciation to the teachers and school for their efforts?

(8) Do they help them in their dreams?

(9) Do they allow and create necessary freedom for their activities?

            We invite the stakeholders at Gyanghar to think and deliberate individually and in groups!●


Academics Fun Retreat (4)

चर्चा के लिए आमंत्रण

     अपेक्षा यह है कि बच्चा, जैसा आप चाहते हैं, वैसी प्रगति करे |

     शिकायतें अनेक हैं–

(१) बच्चे की पढ़ाई में रुचि नहीं |

(२) वह ठीक से पढ़-लिख नहीं सकता |

(३) वह संवाद-क्षमता में कमजोर है |

(४) वह घर पर पाठ नहीं दुहराता |

(५) उसका रिजल्ट कमजोर आता है |

(६) वह आज्ञाकारी नहीं है |

(७) उस पर शिक्षक ध्यान नहीं देते |

(८) पढ़ाई पर खर्च के हिसाब से रिटर्न नहीं मिलता |

(९) वह किसी भी क्षेत्र में विशेष प्रगति नहीं दिखाता |

     आप बना-बनाया उत्तर चाहते हैं |

     आप चाहते हैं, उत्तर दूसरा खोजे, फायदा आपको मिले |

     जीवन के तमाम क्षेत्रों में आज यही हो रहा है |

     शिक्षा-क्षेत्र में भी यही सब होता रहे तो सर्वनाश को रोकना संभव नहीं होगा|

     उत्तर हमें स्वयं खोजने होंगे | दूसरों के दिए हुए उत्तर हमारी समस्याओं के समाधान नहीं हो सकते |

     ज्ञानघर इसी खोज के लिए Academics Fun Retreat आयोजित करता है !

आइये खोजें कि–

(१) शिक्षा क्या है |

(२) शिक्षा से आपकी आपेक्षाएँ क्या हैं |

(३) आपकी अपने बच्चे से अपेक्षाएँ क्या हैं |

(४) आपकी शिकायतें क्या हैं |

(५) क्या आपका बच्चा आपकी अपेक्षाओं और शिकायतों से परिचित है ?

(६) क्या आप स्कूल में नियमित जाकर अपने बच्चे की खोज-खबर रखते हैं ?

(७) क्या आप अपने बच्चे के शिक्षकों व स्कूल को अपने बच्चे की पढ़ाई की लिए धन्यवाद देते हैं ?

(८) क्या आप अपने बच्चे के व्यक्तित्व का सम्मान करते हैं |

(९) क्या आप उसे उसके सपनों को हासिल करने में सहयोग देते हैं ?

(१०) क्या आप घर पर तथा उसके इर्द-गिर्द मुक्त वातावरण रख पाते हैं ?
     आइये, ज्ञानघर में आयोजित Retreat में इसी पर व्यक्तिगत तथा मिलकर विचार करें !●

Why have the basic questions related to life and living not been asked so far? Why are the basic questions related to life and living not being asked even now? According to me, non dares to do so. Philosophically speaking, the living organism is unfit for unbiased answer. Then, what is the way out? I have tried to answer it in my treatise ‘Emotion-Bound Society: A Thesis On Alternative Social Order’


02-10-2016

Observation, in that line knowledge too, is inherently subjective, having scant concern for reality. Then, how can history be factual?
