Stagnation of literature due to the current education system? The way forward.
Let’s jump into the main question that we have. Is there a stagnation with respect to writers or readers? This is the question with which Dr Urvashi Sabu opened up the discussion. Gets’ ones’ mind going, doesn’t it? We all blindly go through our school syllabus but is it really RELEVANT what we’re being taught. Apparently, most people would agree that the current literature and studies taught to us in school is almost completely based on memorizing raw data rather than the practical application of that very knowledge. We live in a day and age where a curious student who asks a question apart from the syllabus is shunned because the teacher is much more concerned about completing the course than helping out a child who is genuinely thirsty for knowledge. This list can go on and on and on, but in the end, the conclusion we land is that ‘The system is flawed’.
Every other person around us is going into professions such as software engineering or becoming a lawyer or some other saturated profession because that is where big money is. People are blindly choosing careers and suppressing their true dreams and desires in order to validate someone or the other, making them slaves to themselves in the end and regretting it on their deathbed.
Dr Urvashi explains how literature is stagnating in today's world due to such an education system that is more inclined towards creating work robots rather than fulfilled and happy human beings. But instead of discussing such flaws and beating around the bush, Dr Urvashi discusses amazing solutions to curb not only this one issue but a lot of other problems that need to be addressed ASAP which is the best part of the webinar. This topic has been a long time coming, and everyone had eagerly looked forward to this wonderful webinar which was also one of the most interactive ones we have ever had.
Anyone who decides to watch this webinar will undoubtedly be kept on their toes by the manner in which Dr Urvashi explains certain truths that will for sure boggle your mind.
