The purpose of Education !!

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.

I have never been happy with the Indian Education system ... I always felt the lack of 'thinking skills' . We learn (read 'rote'). We hardly understand. We rarely think.

I dont think something is wrong with the education system. I think, we need to enhance it. We need to bring in practical creativity and thinking training into it.

Someday ... maybe i will contribute to such measures .. :)
