Q.

Our Dearest Late Prime Minister Pandit Nehruji on 10th November 1963 had given a speech at Education Minister's Conference and it goes like this:

" I am quite convinced in my mind that our first plan should be for universal education. Everything else, whether it is industry, agriculture or anything else which is important for us, will grow adequately only if there is the background of mass education and of course specialized education at higher stages"

Now far this is true do you believe in this great soul????

I firmly believe in the great person called Chacha Nehru. India is extremely lucky to have him as the first PM. Whatever, we are today, it is because of the solid foundation laid by the great man. No doubt, he committed couple of mistakes in his policies with regards to China and Kashmir (about Kashmir, I am not so sure though). But look at the pluses : -
1) India was never a country; Till British came, India was never under a central rule barring two brief periods during Asoke & Mughals (from Akbar to Aurangjeb). During British period, there were more than 600 independent states. Because of Nehru's inclusive policy, India has become one nation.
2) In 1947, our share of world's GDP was extremely negligible because we were looted by the British. Excepting Tata & Birla, there was no other industrial house worth mentioning the name. So he went for public sector - that was right decision. That formed the basis of our industrial strength and because of that today we are proud of our Navra ...more

VIva PM Chacha.

He got the right formula, and this is why ppl like my family who were zamindars gladly and voluntarily gave up land for his nationalization project works.

He had a vision. Modern Indian "leaders" are jokes compared to him. Modern Indian leaders can only talk about making TATA richer or about bringing in the next white collar Ghaznis into the country. PM Chacha talked about cementing the population.

And things like municipal schools are his doing, and so are "model" schools like IIT / IIM etc.

The IIT / IIM model was designed by PM Chacha as a means to benchmark national education and to replicate the models nationwide. But they are now being used as exclusified tickets and that is just pa-the-tic.

Have a look at the nehru/gandhi family tree & you will come to know that this fa,ily is family of multi relations (you will feel like vomitting if you read history of every individual in the Gandhi tree).

This was true, if the education was given the necessary thrust, but we didnot give. As for Jawaharlal Nehru, he is also known as great dreamer. Today being his anniversary, I am not saying much.
