Today's Education

Today's Education

1 min 298 1 min 298

Each one of us needs education, 

But certainly not on such condition,

That you get it only by paying donation.


Every parent is so scared, 

To pay the fees he works so hard,

Indeed education is overpriced.


Once you get admission,

You will have to arrange for tiffin,

And then for pickup van, money is given.


Money gets you good campus and ground,

Books, uniform and laptop to hold,

Again for studies, will search for tuitions around.


Isn't it only a business?

Where teachers are more worried about salaries,

No one bothers about parents difficulties.


Most of the income spent on that,

When parents retire, nothing is left,

As they find their pocket bereft.


All this to make one's child educated, 

So that he gets good job and get settled,

Then see that the same role is again repeated


Once, pupils studied in gurukuls,

Serving gurus in their houses,

Dakshina was paid according to capacities.


Education is not about campus and dress,

Don't ever try to make it a mess,

What it needs is good students and dedicated teachers.
