Caste System, Issues in India, Politics in India, Strikes and Protests

Knowledge is power

It is an undeniable fact that India has made tremendous progress in education and in creating job opportunities, besides making our agricultural lands fertile and productive. We can be proud of our achievements like green and white revolutions.

What is even more satisfying is the fact that those who were economically and socially backward have contributed much in all fields. But, of late, an “impression” is being created by vested interests that some castes are lagging far behind due to negligence. Whatever it may be, it appears from what happens in schools and colleges that the standard of education gets badly affected by frequent quarrels between students or authorities concerned. Unfortunately, it has reached such a level that all our achievements seem to be badly affected as a result of self pity and lack of discipline.

As such major political parties should have an eye on the progress of our educational institutions and advise the students to refrain from petty quarrels and unwanted demonstrations.

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.
