The current Education system that is being followed in the world is nothing but the Western system. This system was in use in Europe since Eighteenth Century as laid down by Descartes the French philosopher. In this system the Education has been broken in various 'subjects' and students are acquainted with them in schools/colleges/Universities. At higher education in College/University the students choose some few subjects and go deeper in the subjects. This is called Higher knowledge in those few selected subjects. Of course the student remains fully ignorant in other subjects that he has left in schools only. But because of higher knowledge he gets his ego raised high. Whatever information about his selected subjects he gets from the professors/lecturers, he tries to remember and starts considering himself as the learned individual.and looks at others as inferiors (to himself). His mental attitude thereby becomes full of negative aspects and the spirit of competition engulfs it.
The subjects about which the education is given are really different aspects about the knowledge considered essential for life on Earth.Since this is only part of the (required) knowledge, it is not whole and hence only partial. In Bhaarat since ancient times Vedas were being taught to good persons who subsequently become knowledgeable about the necessary knowledge ON THEIR OWN. The students were taught the 3Rs (Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic) in the Community centers like temples and theगुरुकुल staff used to visit the temples for selecting the students for Vedic learning in गुरुकुल. Thus their base was ready to build the knowledge building in their minds. The difference in Western and Bhaarateey Education systems can be understood better by reading my article "Holistic Education System" that is being attached with this.
The piecemeal variety of education system that the West (and now whole world including Bhaarat) is following has created lot of problems in the world. The educated people create some gadgets or techniques (for improving human life) but since their suggestions have not taken into account other aspects in other subjects, the inventions do create problems and thereby damage to the life is likely to result. These people consider the information given to them as authentic and thereby other subjects are left out in the consideration. The life is an integrated whole of very many subjects and therefore no effectively useful (and safe) invention has been developed by Western Scientists till now.
The Education Systems need therefore to be holistic so that it can be useful to the human as well as other life on earth.

India after independence was for swaraj for 3 years but then it went back to British colonialism. The person who was for swaraj was killed. And the independence was also killed with him.
People who studied in English up to 1947 were made to study Hindi and Sanskrit up to 1950, but thereafter they studied the same English again which they studied before 1947. A waste of few years.
Unless India takes pride in studying Hindi and Sanskrit and enhance our self-esteem to develop everything our own -boycotting all foreign things, foreign food, foreign medicines, and everything else, foreign dress, customs etc. there seems NO HELP in this or any other matter. So either live with it or change. That will take a perhaps more than 56" chest.
How English ruined Indian literature
PAIN OF LISTENING TO ENGLISH NEWS T V MEDIA ANCHORS
Obviously, the anchors in English news TV media who conduct the debates have no in depth knowledge or specialisation in any field. However, they seem to think that they can talk on any subject whether it is economics, politics, science and technology, crime investigation, culture, foreign policy, sports, and what not. It is not an exaggeration to say that their knowledge is half baked, which is there for all to see but these anchors do not seem to know.
They seem to have a set of people who are called to participate in debates and they seem to be available all the time at their beck and call. With any participants, most of whom are directly or indirectly involved in politics and not in any way better than the anchors in their analytical ability, the debate is marked by lung power rather than substance. The anchor often matches the participants in the lung power, showing no mercy for the viewers. Certainly, intelligent people with facts and figures, who want to observe decorum, cannot have their say in full in these debates, which viewers may be eager to listen.
Most of the viewers helplessly watch these debates and keep on changing from one channel to another, wondering whether one channel would be better than the other. This rarely happens.
Fortunately, only a fraction of Indian citizens understand English communication and amongst those who know English, only a small segment have the patience to watch entire debates but the anchors do not care. They seem to whimsically assume that the helpless viewers will watch anything and everything.
Of course, the worst of the anchors in English news TV media are Arnab Goswami and Karan Thapar, who want to dominate the debate and assume that they know everything and exhibit streaks of arrogance and impoliteness. They put questions and when the participants respond, they cut them and put more questions and shout so much that no one can hear what the participants say. These anchors do not seem to realise that they are so uncivilised in their behaviour.
With Indians putting up with several inconvenience in day today life, the pain of watching English TV debates is one more pain that they have to endure .

It appears from this write that Three Language Formula is also flawed. Then in that case what is new government formula? Kothari Commission has debated this issue threadbare 50 years ago and offered the solutions, but we are not able to decide anything about the language policy. Over emphasis of English has also become detrimental for Indian Languages. More over these English speaking Indian ba***rds are enjoying power disproportionate to their intellect. Promoting German in KVS was also an attempt to undermine third state language by this English lobby. If you observe the drumming of controversy around Sanskrit/German by media, all these media houses are English Language publishers or Indian masses. Nobody of them have emotional, Commercial interest in Indian Languages. Even today after 100 years of English education, we could reach only 5% of the Indian population. Knowledge should be made available in Indian languages so that it will reach masses and that is established well by Kothari Commission.
Learning any other language than the state language should be left to the individual. It can not be a government policy.
I feel sorry to say that so called freedom in dark mid night 1947 is the beginning of mental slavery of Indians, where with eyes they can not see the hidden message in freedom, just like the poem of TS Eliot the Waste Land or Vedas. India and Indians are still mental slaves of British Emperor and feeling freedom with ego of self.
English-speaking and loving class (most of them) of India grow up hating everything Indian, its culture, languages, values, heritage, Indian philosophy and its pioneers and so on.
I personally know many-many of them. They never learned what is the Indian way of thinking about life and the world and hence they do NOT like a thing a about their motherland.
Young Indians should prefer to first learn who they are, their roots and sanskriti so they stay grounded in their lives?
Sanskrit gives the Indian way of thinking, operating and living in the world.
Family life and life with-in a man is crumbling in the WEST, and they are so desperately looking for novel ways of thinking, operating and living in the world.
20 millions practice Yoga in USA, top MNCs are running Meditation and yoga classes for their employees. Does it tell you something about the FUTURE of human needs?

We Indians have a tendency, if not belief, that we should ape the western system confirming our inferiority complex. We have a tendency to respect the white skins be it a big or small beggar.
This tendency has its initiation by one Jawaharlal Nehru, who happened to be the last British Prime Minister of India. He was a stooge of the west, bringing the west minster type of parliamentary system. Our constitution was copied from the west. One, Nehru had no laity in the originality of the Indianess much less of his if any. Two, he never considered himself to be an Indian. He was terribly scared if somebody mistakes him to be Hindu although he called himself pandit. Yes the hatred for the Hindus was the highest in his agenda when he took over a Prime Minister on 15th August 1947.
India would have gone greater height had India not got the ignominy of Nehru being the prime Minister. Instead if Vallab Bai Patel should have been the prime Minister.
