Khan Janaki Nair Romila Thapar and Satish Deshpande With nearly 30 million students India’s higher education sector is larger than the population of Australia But what makes it notable today is the scale of the social revolution it is effecting In the 21st century China and India are enacting one of the most dramatic instances of the democratisation of higher education as millions of families send a child to college for the first time As teachers we are mindful of being part of this momentous process It’s also heartening to see the Indian state taking the initiative to enable the entry of hitherto excluded groups by making significant investments However the manner in which the state is intervening in higher education is causing widespread concern A striking similarity between the unlamented UPA 2 regime and the current Narendra Modi government is their authoritarian impatience to introduce wholesale changes without careful preparation Some of the proposed changes include the introduction of a common syllabus for all Central universities a common entrance test faculty and student mobility and credit transfers A series of nationwide schemes — like Gian Kushal and Swayam — are being planned along with e-libraries online courses and other technology-driven proposals Some of the justifications offered are enhanced employability skill development and seamless nationwide student mobility The measures don’t address the most urgent problems and seem poised to repeat earlier mistakes A common entrance test works well only for narrowly defined technical disciplines such as engineering or medicine It’s unlikely to work when disciplines and institutions cover a wide range and have divergent requirements If the proposed common curriculum is intended to address the uneven quality across institutions it ignores the root cause which is not the lack of “model” curricula but the ability to implement them Diversity is not the enemy of quality and high standards need not imply standardisation Heeding historical and regional specificities is an imaginative alternative far more likely to succeed While it may have many common features “reform” need not and should not mean the same thing for universities in Varanasi and Vadodara or in Hampi and Hyderabad If the purpose of standardisation is to enable student mobility we must be clear about what we mean by “mobility” What factors prevent students from moving Why do they wish to move How would a common curriculum and transferable credits help There is no evidence these questions have been answered or that policymakers have learnt from controversies dogging the Bologna Process a programme to boost mobility and employability across European universities that has sparked student protests and criticism Judging by their borrowed vocabulary our reforms may be trying to solve an Indian problem (shortage of quality institutions) with a European method (mobility) In India merely enabling students to move is pointless because the institutions they would choose are already overcrowded Two generic features of the proposed reforms are particularly worrisome The first is the blind reliance on technological fixes like Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) This ignores the global experience that MOOCs cannot replace face-to-face learning The second is the imposition of unviable timetables with “one month” as the typical deadline Such haste inevitably invites authoritarianism By contrast there are important areas left unaddressed The most vital is language Historians of a later era will no doubt be astonished at the extent to which English continued as the gatekeeper of higher education decades after Independence Progress on this will have the largest impact in widening access to higher education and yet it has not been addressed with the urgency it deserves The difficult question of devising mechanisms for enhancing the accountability of teachers and administrators is yet to be tackled The anxiety over rankings and the search for more transparent systems for evaluating academic performance have led to a self-defeating preoccupation with quantitative indicators Any system of evaluation must recognise the equal validity of multiple systems of knowledge Perhaps the ultimate reason for the mismatch between official initiatives and ground realities lies in an overly narrow view of higher education Technical skills and a notion of employability cannot by themselves constitute education Training alone is far from sufficient because it only enables the efficient reproduction of what is already known Education is about acquiring the resources and the imaginative ability to tackle the unknown an ability upon which rests our collective future The writers are

celebrate the special bond of love between them Sisters tie a thread/band around their brother’s wrist for his long life and happiness and in exchange he promises to protect his sibling from all evils This year Raksha Bandhan will be observed on August 7 Origin of Raksha Bandhan The exact origin of the festival that is celebrated joyously in India and Nepal is unknown but there are are many interesting stories associated with it The most popular one is from the Mahabharata and it acknowledges the relationship between Lord Krishna and Draupadi According to the epic one morning when Lord Krishna was flying a kite he cut his finger on the abrasive string Draupadi who was nearby saw him bleeding profusely and ran to him She then tore a piece from her sari and tied it around his finger Lord Krishna was so touched that in return he promised to protect her from all evil forever And he did protect her all along especially during her ‘cheerharan’ by the Kauravas There’s another interesting story involving Emperor Humayun and Rani Karnavati of Mewar When Mewar was attacked twice by Bahadur Shah Zafar in the mid 16th century she sent a letter with a rakhi to Humayun as a last resort to help her The emperor was so touched by the gesture that he immediately left the military campaign he was then involved in to protect her Interesting rituals There are many rites and rituals associated with Raksha Bandhan and some go beyond the more popular practice of tying rakhi around the brother’s wrist In some parts of India families draw figures and symbols on the walls of their homes and worship them with offerings of vermilion and kheer Palm imprints are also used to decorate the entrance of a household where rakhis are stuck For all the latest Lifestyle News download
