Education to me is about ‘Learning for self and acquiring the wisdom of life’.
With the advent of Medical based technology, as we move into a boundary-less and inter-connected world, the common phrase ‘sky is the limit’ seems a bit of a cliché, since the quantum of success has grown in manifold. With success comes the attitude towards winning and spirit of achievement; and education should aim towards preparing the mind-set for excellence. Excellence can be achieved in various fields depending on the student’s capacities and capabilities. The syllabus must be enriched by incorporating a good pedagogy and integrated programmes to create learning experiences and right interpretation of facts. Experiential Learning, to me, is the key to quality education.
Finally education is all about providing the specialized skills and negotiating tools to the coming generation that can be used constructively for the betterment of mankind.
