There is no doubt that the Aam Aadmi Party government of Delhi has taken many new and good initiatives in the field of education. Many international celebrities have also been greatly impressed by his new education system. Now the Delhi government has announced that it will prepare one lakh such children in 50 centers who can speak fluent English. Compulsory teaching of English is done in all the schools of India, but very few students have the ability to communicate in English.
Because of this, they are neither able to get good jobs and they also suffer from inferiority complex in other areas of life. Its biggest loss is to the students of poor and backward families. They have to be content with substandard positions and low-paying jobs. Such students should get a chance to progress in life, that’s why the Delhi government will now make 12th pass students practice speaking English free of cost. Initially she will deposit Rs 950 from them so that they remain serious about the course.
This amount will be returned to them at the end. This course will be of 3-4 months only. This Speak English great campaign will be open to youths in the age group of 18 to 35 years. Broadly speaking, the intention behind this scheme of the Delhi government is completely commendable, but not only of Delhi, has the government of all our states and the central government ever thought that the compulsion of English in our education and jobs has done a great loss to India. ? If the requirement of English is removed from government jobs, which parent would make the mistake of loading grass on their deer-like children?
A year or two is enough to learn any foreign language other than Chinese, but in India, this grass is imposed on children for ten to twelve years. Apart from English, during my student days, I learned German, Russian and Persian languages easily throughout the year. Most of the time of students is wasted in wrestling with English. Other subjects are ignored. Originality is destroyed. The inferiority gland begins to grow. Arrogance and pretense arise. Our education system collapses.
75 years of independence are being completed but still we are living in linguistic and intellectual slavery. No leader like Mahatma Gandhi and Lohia has been courageous enough in the country to challenge this slavery of Macaulay. I hope Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Minister Manish Sisodia, instead of following the beaten path like other Chief Ministers and Prime Ministers, run such a vigorous campaign that the imperative of English is removed from jobs and education in India. Those who have to learn foreign languages for higher research, foreign trade and diplomacy, they must learn it. Full facilities should be given to them.
