WE WERE NOT TOLD

 

We spent several years in school

From kindergarten to Higher institution

Just to wear this uniform..

But we were not told…

That the uniform does not guarantee quick employment.

 

Three weeks in orientation camp

With paramilitary drilling, all because of this uniform,

Still we were not told that the drilling is not a yard stick for quick employment.

 

Early morning bath in the cold..

Rushing to the parade ground..

You dare not miss the first line of the anthem

You will have to give proper explanation to the soldiers,

Awaiting you with their heartless punishment

 

Yet we were not told..

That the government has destroyed the Nation decades ago

Climbing trees,

Jumping poles,

Crawling under dangerous wires,

Running and matching in the sun

All because the state governor is coming to visit the camping ground

And there’s need to impress the nation

 

Yet we were not told…

That it’s just a waste of time

Sharing toilet with more than 40 corps members

Risking our lives to please the nation

 

Yet we were not told…

That our names are not on their list to benefit from the national Treasury.

From camp to place of primary assignment,

Working from Monday to Friday with no coins in our pockets

 

Yet we were not told…

That the sacrifices are not recorded in their book.

 

Finally we passed out and face the employment market

But we were not told that age is a barrier

4years working experience would be needed

 

We were not told that education is what we need not schooling

We were not told that schooling will only produce a graduate with certificate but education will make a product with something to produce.

 

Our teachers lied to us that a good CGPA is all  what the society need.

They lied to us right from kindergarten..

That we must study hard to have a good result but not to have good education.

 

We were not told…

That the man who invented college didn’t go to college.

Oh we were wrongly informed through our education curriculum.

 

Many lies told…

Many brains washed..

Lots of wrongs in our curriculum

Forget schooling and get education

 

Enough of learning computer on the board

Enough of learning physics on the board

Enough of learning mechanical/electrical engineering on the board

Enough of learning agriculture on the board

Enough of schooling

 

Bring education back to our schools.
