Golden Doors of Freedom...!!!

George Washington Carver, an American scientist, botanist, educator and inventor from the late 19th century and early 20th century, once said:
"Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."

Obviously, education, if delivered properly, then it will lead you on the right path and help you succeed in life, even when you're free to do anything, you'll have the power to judge the right path. In brief, if "proper education" is given in a proper way, it will lead to success, else GOD knows. 

Many understood it and used it wisely and selflessly. Some of them even helped others through this and now we call those people as "Social Reformers".

But many misunderstood it or you can say over-understood it. Those who over-understood it, took it literally and started building "golden" doors for themselves, even if they have to destroy anything on the way. And now we know them as "Politicians".

Anyways, according to an old saying

"A picture is worth a thousand words".

So to support the statement of Mr. Craver, here I am with 725 thousand words for you or you can say a set of 725 pictures. Don't worry, you don't have to scroll through all of them, they will automatically come to you at the rate of 25 pictures per second.

{In other words, I present to you a 29 second video (shot @25 frames per second) :P}

PS: Hope these 29 seconds (If you have watched them) delivers the message, as intended.

What constitutes a JEE Topper...??? Fluke or Hard-Work...!!!

Disclaimer: Title of the post says it all. Continue at your own risk.

Case 1:
Kartikeya Gupta, Delhi Topper
JEE(Advanced):                                          4th rank 
JEE(Main):                                                 323/360
Final Rank(including XII Board marks):          738

Case 2:
                                  1st Student                              2nd Student
JEE(Main):                    247/360                                    247/360
XII Boards:                     461/500                                    469/500
Final Rank:                     5814                                         3962

Case 3:
                                1st Student                              2nd Student
JEE(Main):                  210/360                                    260/360
XII Boards:                    95%                                           92%

Final Rank(1st Student) >> Final Rank(2nd Student)

List of such cases are so long that one can't imagine. So, its better to not to enlist more here.

But why on earth do they come up with new policies to ruin the future of India? I gave it 5 and a half years back. It wasn't a joke. I still remember how tough it was and how Chemistry stopped me from entering JEE and I don't think that it is any joke now also.

The amount of effort that student has put in scoring 323/360 would be phenomenal, and 5-7% less marks in boards pays him by earning 738 rank AIR.

If you score 8 marks less, meaning 1.3% less, your rank can fall down by almost 2000.

Criteria for passing the board exams to appear for JEE was worth it. It would have been fine if the cut-off was increased from 60% to 70% in boards to appear for JEE. But taking 40% weightage of board marks into JEE was horrible idea. Here I'd like to ask just one question...

What do they think that is it any joke to score in JEE...??? Do we score by fluke...??? That possibility is almost next to impossible, even if someone says that he/she cleared it by luck, that person also must have put a lot of effort sometime back. Whereas scoring in boards is way easy. Your answer booklets are not scrutinized in boards until and unless you have scored highest in that subject across whole board. You'll rarely find any novelty in the questions coming in any board exams. Its just the level of difficulty which is set by the board to check the papers which regulates the marks every year. Any student, good at mugging up, can score good marks in boards. But that's not the case in JEE. It takes a lot of hard-work to crack it.

Is this some kind of mockery of Indian education going on from the last one year or so? Last few days, I've been posting a lot against Indian Education System. I don't know how but I keep coming across these news' again and again. This time, I didn't get much chance to read any newspaper or any online article, but then I received this article by mail from my sister. I thought that I won't read it. But couldn't help it and after I read it, here you see the result, another post... :P

I'd like to end the post with an awesome quote by Navjot Singh Siddhu.

"There is light at the end of the tunnel for India,
but it's that of an incoming train which will run them over."

Perfectly suits the situation. :-/

PS: Bhagwaan un netaaon ko sadbuddhi de jo aise rules banate hain. (May God bless the politicians with some brain who make such rules)
