Many times we may heard while people taking ,

  • Education System is of no use
  • Aaj kal toh koi naya innovation  hota hi nahi

So what is the difference between Indian Education System Now & Before?

Education before East India Company in India

Indian Education System was based on  ” Vedic Shikshna ” before arriving of East India Company  in  India.In ” Vedic Shikshana” methodology  there was two pillers ” Guru ” & ” Shisha” & entire process of education was been carried out in ” Aashram “. In vedic shikshan methodology ,the shisha had to prove their interest towards the subject they want to take.Once they had proved their capabilities after that only shisha allowed to enter into that perticular subject whether it is ” Vaidic Shastra ” , ” Rajya Shastra ” or ” Samaj Shastra”.Once they finished with the study then they had to give a one to one oral test ,for example

Rajya Shastra – The student of Rajya Shastra had to give one to one oral exam in front of “King”

Vaidya Shastra – The student of Vaidya Shastra had to give one to one oral exam in front of ” Vaidya Bhaskara”

Samaj Shastra – The student of Samaj Shastra had to give one to one oral exam in front of ” Dharma Sabhapati ‘

So in Vedic Shikshana Methodology First they needed  to prove their interest / Capabilities , Then they were entering  into  the particular subject & at the end there was an exam but oral one to one.

Vedic Shikshna Methodalogy had given world class scientists to the India & they had done valuable Research & Innovation.There are so many names such as,

Arya Bhatt – Mathematical Scientist , who discover ZERO & many other research

Shushrusha – Vaidic Scientist , who had done first Eye Surgery in the world

Bhaskara Charya : Physics Scientist , who had discover the law of gravitational force

Maharshi Kanad, Panini, Pinglala & So on..


Education After East India Company in India

When East India Company came to the India for business , that time they had  two major  problems here

  • Shortage of Educated Employees
  • The Medium of Communication

East India Company Appointed a person that time his name was  ” Lord Macaulay

After doing a huge survey in India, Lord Macaulay said the following about India in 1835 in British Parliament.
“I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem (become slave), their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.”
In Conclusion Macaulay said, If we want the ” Slave” for functioning of East India Company In India, We need to do two things ,
  • Distroy Vedic Shikshana Methodology & Introduce British Education System
  • Introduce English in Education System

And at the end he said , implemention of  above 2 points should be done in such away that ,people should forget the purpose of study & try to run into the crowded race.When they will start running in the race ,ultimately they will become ” Non Creative ” & further innovation would not be happen in India.

Then East India Comapny Introduce Written Exams , Attendance System , Standard , Marks etc parameters in the education system which can make people busy , Non Creative & in result Non Productive.

 Our Educational Life  & Professional Life ,there is a common parameter that ” We are Following “
