Glimpse of MOT 2019

It cannot be denied that our youth in schools and colleges are following an outdated form of education that does not address the individuals’ potential and capabilities. Education has become more of a low-nutrient diet without the essential requirements, with everyone accessing the same things regardless of their needs. The system’s lack of target and vision has created a mass of unemployed youths who do not have special skills for any specific job. Amidst this scenario, Manipur has seen a few people who stood out from the crowd, one being Oja Dhanabir. He rightly said in his talks that the future belongs to the youth.

The pertinent question is, Who will be the next Oja Dhanabir? What made Oja Dhanabir who he is?

We have, over time, seen some people breaking the barrier and doing the non-conventional, leading to different unique ideas like Globizs, Medilane, etc., and future leaders.

Is our current education system nurturing the minds to solve real-life practical problems or analyzing the question pattern and mugging up answers for them?

Aren’t we curious how these ideas sprouted and became what they are today.?

With MOT, we intended to bring to light the following issues: –

  • The education system in our state has become relatively rigid and outdated. Our teaching-learning process should be flexible enough to adapt to the changing pace of technology. As the internet continues to evolve, we need educators (efficient ones) on the platform.
  • There is a need to de-stigmatize non-academic Education and reinstate vocational training, art, music, and drama.
  • We must address the issue of ‘Education for the sake of Education. Several students are being forced into Medical and Engineering schools because there is an apparent perception in our state that they are the threshold for higher Education. The linearity with which we approach higher studies has made the process tedious. We need to expand our horizons and branch out to other domains of learning. For example, there is the old-age perception that Humanities and Arts streams are for the students who are not smart enough for Medical and Engineering students. We need to break this stereotype.
  • The situation in Manipur is regrettable as Education isn’t failing for the rich because they have access to prestigious and fancy schools abroad. The poor are stuck, and it is high time to change our focus from literacy to Education.
  • Manipuris have a reflexive tendency to accept an institution based on the name alone, which has compromised the quality of teaching and learning. The current education system is more focused on producing people who are only trained to crack exams leading to only a few professional streams. Institutionalization has affected secondary schools to a great extent.
  • Putting an economic spin on Education has turned Education into a commodity. Even then, we are not doing it like the other states. We are not focused on business studies or commerce. We are only focused on preparing the kids for these standardized tests.
  • We also need to address the elephant in the room. The entire system is lacking because of the subpar level of higher Education. In the University, things like creativity and judgment are undervalued because classes that reinforce such values are being sidelined. It eventually turns into a rat race of students concerned only with jumping through hoops to make the professors happy.
  • With these issues in mind, we, as a group, would like to bring awareness to the students in particular and the larger public in general.
