Hello to all lovely readers of my blog ! Welcome to the first interaction conducted under the Project – Educational Reforms in India, initiated with the help of blogchatter – A biggest platform for all the Indian bloggers .
I asked few people to express their views regarding the educational reforms as a parent , teacher or as a student on Twitter. Here is what they have suggested.
My first interaction was with Dr Amrita,who is a parent to a six year old girl and a teacher in a Medical College. I asked few question which were popping in my mind since the thought of this project came into my mind.
Here is my interaction with her.
Journeysays – What changes you want to see in present educational system ?
Dr Amrita : I want quality, affordable education with strong practical classes. Practicals like summer internships at various levels to have an idea about how different industries work. The education system is okay but the expectation needs to be balanced. While parents know the practical nature of life ,children and youngsters have no clue . Employability of education makes it useful. Until this gap in knowledge is understood by parents ,children and educators ,we have to face the problem. Education which doesn’t help us to make us financially free does not solve the purpose .
I would also like put more focus onhealthy living and Financial health.
Entrepreneurship mindsets should be incorporated in various ways from middle school onwards. Children are smart but a little guidance helps.
Journeysays– Your expectations from teachers ?
Dr Amrita : Teachers need to be upto date and incorporate the practical aspect of their subject with real examples, for better understanding .
Journeysays – Can you suggest any one or 2 practical ways to achieve your suggestions ?
Dr Amrita : Mindset shift is important. Education must be cherished . But with India’s impossible population number , making quality and affordable education accessible is a challenge. First step population control Second step better early life nutrition Third step mindset shift for both parents and children. For rest of my ideas you can read my blog post on this https://t.co/mAMNgA9m0y
I also interacted with Sakshi who is a teacher and student too. She teaches class 6th , 7th and 8th
According to her : Education should not become some kind of spoon feeding system . Like happening in schools these days . Practical knowledge need to be given, not just grades should be imparted . The class should be full of fun and interesting. There should be enough time for self studying hours for children. Parents should not providing smart phones to school students as it act as hindrance to their studies.
She says– Our education system is still based on age old belief that what is taught in books is the only way to excel in your exams and life which is quite the opposite to what life actually. Emphasis should be given on teaching practical theory . When we enter the society the first thought in our mind normally is what use was of those written exams where we just vomited out our by hearted words.
According to Jai who is a published writer, blogger and father :
I think training should be provided in chores that are neither included in extra-curricular nor academic activities. Small things for teenage children like carpentry, pottery, cooking for both males and females etc would impart life skills.
Dedicating time for aptitude development and extracurricular activities would be very beneficial where mugging up won’t be needed. Approach needs to change from only marks to performance and understanding.
These are the initial thoughts we have come up. Still lots of brain storming on this topic is left.
Kindly do share and create awareness among people to share their view point. We are open to all. Share on what’s app , Twitter or Reblog the way you want to share. You are welcomed to express your thoughts through the survey Link , as a guest post or interview. Do contact me through my contact page

What we do today will the the past next moment. It is our decision what we want to do today and how to react in a particular situation. Keep in mind , it is we who make the memories for tomorrow. Decide today, what kind of memories you want to enjoy in your future !
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Education is a fundamental right for all the citizens of world according to the UN declaration . Hence , in most of the states in India, basic education is provided free to all. But the question is whether the education being given to them achieving the purpose ? Is it having a power to give the citizens which the future world is looking for.
Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
The purpose of education can not be defined in few words. It is more than a definition. It has to be specific and goal oriented.
Need for this project ?
Being a teacher , a parent there has always been a great debate on what and how the child should get the education at various levels.
Be on a social media platforms or in family or friends get together I have witnessed the parents so worried for the education of their kids. I remember the incident I witnessed while travelling in a cab , that made me to get more deeper into this project –
Educational Reforms in India.
Ideas and objectives behind this Project :
We all discuss a lot on this topic with others .We share our ideas , shortcomings or better ways to teach children in school, colleges and universities. These discussions remain as discussions only and disappear from our minds soon. What if it could be recorded or entered into somewhere so that we could get a better picture of our expectations and the reforms we are looking for in our education system.

If you are a new blogger on the wordpress site , then this post is for you. When I joined an year back , I have found this platform to be the best , easy to understand even if you are not computer literate . The community is very supportive. There are many bloggers who helped me to grow and understand the basics of blogging. I am not an expert as I am still on the way of learning as learning is an never ending process.

This is a point from where readers are going to see a broad idea about the categories for which you are writing. It helps the reader to navigate where and what they want to read.
It should be easy and clear e.g. I am writing short stories , my feelings and quotes. When the reader clicks on Menu , it is up to the reader what they want to read. You can add categories like book reviews , affiliates , food recipes and many more.
There is a space on your website where you can add widgets. In the very beginning you may find it difficult to understand what these widgets are all about and why is there a need to add and where to add. You can add these widgets to sidebar i.e. on the side of the website page or at bottom of the page , depending on the the theme. This includes
This helps your follower to get connected with you on other social media platforms. You have to connect the social icons of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to your accounts. This is because your reader may know you better from your other accounts as you must be posting something different on other accounts e.g. I post food recipes , my travel pics on my Insta Page and Facebook page.
This feature has been proven a great help for me. If you have any problem at any time , do leave your question or problem there. The help team will contact you and will give you a proper solution.
