Exam pattern in education should be changed

Prof Sahasrabudhe, Chairman All India Council for Technical Education, expressed the need of change in our education system while delivering a lecture recently. According to him and his experience, first training for teachers is must to develop their abilities.

As far as teaching in higher education is concerned, the exposure to industry should be made mandatory for students. The present examination pattern of our system must be changed from memorising to learning.

It means instead of asking students to give answers in writing form, it should test the students in learning part. It becomes obvious that whether it is school or college during tests or exams, in spite of asking to write answers 100 %, it should be divided into four parts i.e. writing, reading, speaking and listening.

Then the quality of our education will definitely go up, which can be helpful in earnings like doing job or running a business.

Set up a mining university in Rayalaseema

Rayalaseema districts are the repository of mineral wealth. Nearly 32 minerals are available, including the rare ore 'Pularine' in Kadapa district. This region is the sole holder of country's resources and is the leading producer of barytes, ball clay, dolomite, garnet, laterite, limestone and vermiculite.

Rayalaseema is also the sole producer of asbestos, Kadapa as its hub, in the world. Rayalaseema region is literally a goldmine! It has a huge potential for gold and diamond mining in Kurnool, Anantapur and Chittoor districts.

Nearly Rs 8,000 crore has been remitted to the State exchequer in the name of royalty from the mines of the Rayalaseema annually. But ironically, no single university or engineering college is not offering any course related to mines and minerals.

Setting up of mining based industries is also not up to the demand. Hence, the government should take initiation to set up mining university to cater the needs of the backward and draught-prone region of Rayalaseema.

End private school-transport department nexus

The Longowal's (Punjab) school van fire incident has once again exposed our corrupt system and collusion between schools and transport department.

Majority of private schools particularly those situated in rural areas openly plies buses and vans as old as 20 years which often prove to be fatal. But neither the school management nor the administration bear the responsibility due to the reasons well known to them.

These types of tragedies have also happened earlier but after a few days, everybody forgets. The government must take strict measures to check the transports of every school so that no innocent life should be lost in future. RIP to the lost.

Women deserve berths in Delhi Cabinet

In the recent Delhi Assembly elections, AAP has won the polls with big majority. But on the day of oath ceremony of the AAP government, we feel disappointed because no woman Minister has been given place in the Cabinet. Women had played a big role for winning elections of AAP.

There is a need to give Cabinet berth for at least two women candidates in the AAP government. It is my humble request to the Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, to consider for the induction of at least two women Ministers in the Delhi Cabinet and justify the women's role for winning of Delhi Assembly elections.

Hope the Delhi Chief Minister would consider in this and offer Ministers' post in his Cabinet to at least two women very soon.
