Are marks really important??? 

Albert Einstein once said “Everyone is a genius but if ÿøú judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree it Will live its whole life believing its stupid .

Every teacher and student gives importance to the topper of the class.  Why??  Just because he/she scores the highest marks.  So are marks really so important? Today’s world distinguish students on the basis of Marks,  if one scores above 80 or 90 percent he/she is intelligent and the rest are “dumb”. But marks does not defines our knowledge.  Maybe a student who scores less marks has more knowledge than a topper Or maybe the student is just not interested in mugging up things and scoring marks  .  If a child comes back home from school, most of the parents ask about their child’s  marks but only few parents ask what their child has actually learned beyond books. Learning beyond books is very important.  Students suicide and come under great stress just because of “marks”. Bookish knowledge does not predetermine your future.  Each one of us has a different path,  different destiny,  different dream. Education does not mean marks , it means knowledge and values.  People like Bill Gates and Albert Einstein have proved that that marks and a famous college is not EVERYTHING. Marks give you a great job but not a happy life  where you don’t work for money but for your passion and hobbies.  The definition of education followed today is extremely wrong. But that does not mean we stop working hard, sadly in a country like India, where competion is at peak and marks are given importance by the society and the parents too, Ultimately  Our  career is based on our 10th and 12th grade marks to get the subject we want and the college we want to get into. But I hope to soon see a reformed education system where knowledge, understanding and values are given importance,  where students don’t have to copy the same procedures given in their practical files,  where We get a chance to explore and experience different things around us and where we get a chance to be creative and our sole competition should be ourselves, not the whole world.  I wish soon the definition of education and intelligence changes. It sounds like dream but wish this could be true.  Till then live a happy and stress free life and don’t give marks much undue importance. 😎

 This was my opinion.. Pls feel free to share your opinion on this topic. 

“The dirty picture”.

 Politics plays a pivotal role in our country. After all, we are known as the largest democracy. Politics in India is just like a movie going on.  Our representatives are wonderful “actors”. I named this article as ‘The dirty picture’ because the politics in our country is just a dirty drama.  The hero and the villain both played by the politicians and we people just choose one of these ‘actors’ because we still have hope and expectations for a new change.  Big promises are made before the elections, but after it we don’t even see them outside their big mansions.  These ‘actors’ act as if they want to serve the country but are there in politics only for money and power.  Once they become a member of parliament or assembly they think the “whole world” is under them. They show their arrogance up there, at 36,000 feet and have no shame in admitting that they hit people with slippers, they hit and run, they attack and murder but they aren’t behind the bars but behind a podium giving out their long speeches and giving fake hope to people. Is honesty really the best policy?  Then why is an honest IAS officer transferred after he/she tries to expose a politician?  One of the best examples of dirty politics can be the separation of India and Pakistan, everyone wants power but with that NO responsibility.  Politics was never dirty, but is now just because of the ‘actors’.  I think these people should try their luck at movies rather than wasting their and our time.  We would have been a faster developing country, if we had politicians who actually cared for us.  I would like to conclude by quoting the words of Abraham Lincoln “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.  So let’s try to choose a Leader for our country not an ‘Actor’,  because POWER lies in our hands too. 

Just one change needed!!! 

Woman, a mother, a wife,  a daughter and a sister.  A mother sacrifices her career for her children , a wife compromises her wishes for her husband, a daughter is not allowed to go out alone and a sister is treated more  like a domestic worker than a family member.  But why?  Why all the rules and regulations are on women only? Ever since the independence struggle, the women have been fighting for two freedoms one from the Britishers and the other from the customs of the society that acted as a barrier for them. Today we are in the 21st century, independent and free…but is this true for women also?  The rules still remain the same for us. Once we get married We have to change our surnames, we are not allowed to go out after 8, Many of us are still forced to give up our dreams and live inside the big purdahs to hide our faces.  I have seen criminals hiding their faces but we aren’t criminals. Why are we being punished for being born as a girl??  They say “Khud ko dhakho, buri Nazar se baccho”.Our society wants to change our dresses but not the mindset of their boys.  Just one change, one change in the mindset can change the world for every girl.There was this campaign started by  some men a few years ago #notallmen,true not all men disrespect women,instead many of them actual helped us to change people’s view, but  #everygirl.  Yes,  every girl shares the same fear . People think nowadays women have turned feminists, no we are just asking for our rights that We deserve.  This year has been extremely special for all of us.  The 11 girls in the cricket ground changed the whole nation’s view and the Muslim women won over the unfair triple talaq.  In both these cases the real  Sheroes are the women who never ever lost their hope with so many obstacles.  We are living in this fearful and unsafe world today, may be because our traditions are made in this way, we tie ‘Rakhis’ to our brothers for protecting us rather than learning self defence . It’s even more sad when women themselves torture their own daughters and daughter in laws for dowry or marriage.  It’s shocking when a woman is crying in grief when a girl is born after 9 months of  the pain she suffered.  It’s high time that we understand that once we give our girls a chance to fly, they will work and earn at par with the men. Every girl is just waiting for that one ‘yes’  from her parents, in laws or grandparents to live her own life outside the kitchen or the house.  Wishing all of us more power and I hope that we will soon see a world without any fear.
