110 Schools On Sale 1000 Crores Education India

In Education on June 14, 2014 at 19:15

There are 110 Metric schools are in the market for sale in Tamil Nadu.

 

Of this one group of Institution  near Namakkal Tamil Nadu is on sale (with Engineering college) is expecting a price of 650 Crore.

 

 

The share of government schools in the total number of schools in India appears to be declining, with the growing interest amongst corporate entities

and organisations to enter the K-12 education space (primary and secondary), given the huge target market and profit potential(on February 14, 2014)

But,

 

With a median age of 25 years, India has over 550 million people below the age of 25 years. According to Census figures, over 32 per cent of the 1.1 billion population is between the age group 0–14 years. This means that the number of people in India needing primary and secondary education alone exceeds the entire population of the US. Since these students will be seeking higher education in India over the next decade, it illustrates the sheer size of the Indian education market.

The private education sector is estimated to reach US$ 115 billion by 2018, according to consulting firm Technopak. Technopak sees enrollments in Kindergarten-12th grade (K-12) growing to 351 million, requiring an additional 34 million seats by 2018.

According to a report ‘Education in India: Securing the demographic dividend’, published by Grant Thornton, the primary and secondary education, or K-12 sector is expected to reach US$ 50 billion in 2015 from US$ 24.5 billion in 2008, growing at an estimated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14 per cent.

Further, according to the report ’40 million by 2020: Preparing for a new paradigm in Indian Higher Education’ released by Ernst & Young, the higher education sector in India is expected to witness a growth of 18 per cent CAGR till 2020. At present, the sector witnesses spends of more than Rs 46,200 crore (US$ 7.68 billion), which is estimated to grow over Rs 232,500 crore (US$ 38.69 billion) in 10 years.”

 

 

 

A report has identified that the slow rollout of government schools as compared to private schools could be due to tight government finances.

With the growing disposable income of Indian households, education from private schools appears to be the preferred medium as compared to government schools, according to a study on ‘Indian Education Industry – Expanding reach and growing awareness to fuel industry growth’ by Care Research.

Robust growth

Rising income levels, rapid urbanisation, coupled with increasing awareness about the importance of quality education have resulted in the robust growth of the Indian educational industry. The report states that the network of Indian education industry ranks amongst the largest in the world, with more than 1.4 million schools and 35,000 higher education institutes.

With the increasing role of private sector in setting up educational institutes, especially in the K-12 and higher education segments, the market size of the Indian education industry was estimated at ₹3,83,310 crore during FY 2013.”

How come the sudden interest in Indian Education?

The market size.

Government’ encouragement of the private sector at the cost of the Public sector(Government schools).

The changes in Educational Policy in respect of giving room to Private Sector will not be visible unless you read between the lines.

First Rajiv Gandhi, then  Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh followed it up.

Uniform system of Education system was abolished.

Setting up of Navodaya type of Schools was encouraged.

The National Policy on Education (NPE) is a policy formulated by the Government of India to promote education amongst India’s people. The policy covers elementary education to colleges in both rural and urban India. The first NPE was promulgated in 1968 by the government of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, and the second by Prime MinisterRajiv Gandhi in 1986. It emphasizes three aspects in relation to elementary education:

  • universal access and enrolment,
  • universal retention of children up to 14 years of age, and
  • a substantial improvement in the quality of education to enable all children to achieve
  • Revival of Sanskrit and other classical languages for contemporary use.

..Based on the report and recommendations of the Education Commission (1964–1966), the government of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi announced the first National Policy on Education in 1968, which called for a “radical restructuring” and equalise educational opportunities in order to achieve national integration and greater cultural and economic development.[2] The policy called for fulfilling compulsory education for all children up to the age of 14, as stipulated by the Constitution of India, and the better training and qualification of teachers.[2] The policy called for focus on learning of regional languages, outlining the “three language formula” to be implemented in secondary education – the instruction of the English language, the official language of the state where the school was based, and Hindi, the national language.[2] Language education was seen as essential to reduce the gulf between the intelligentsia and the masses. Although the decision to adopt Hindi as the national language had proven controversial, the policy called for use and learning of Hindi to be encouraged uniformly to promote a common language for all Indians.[2] The policy also encouraged the teaching of the ancient Sanskrit language, which was considered an essential part of India’s culture and heritage. The NPE of 1968 called for education spending to increase to six percent of the national income. As of 2013,the NPE 1968 has moved location on the national website’

 

What remains vague is the watering down of Compulsory education at Government schools, citing poor resources, opening up the private sector.

 

corporate schools.

 

Then why the scramble to sell off these schools which touted as he best and are the ones that produce 100 % results and state ranks?

 

It is ironical that he Tamil Nadu top Ranks in Public examinations are secured by Small Government run schools.

 

The Government indirectly encourages private schools at the primary level by not opening sufficient  number of  KG sections, thus forcing the children to go to private schools where the standard of education varies(CBSE etc)

 

Onec children get settled there they go later to  only private schools, thus forcing the Government schools languish .

 

Yet the schools want to sell.

 

These Institutions are/were stated mainly Politicians and others to convert Black Money into white and once the job is dome they want to get out.

 

Second they,underestimating the capacity to pay have invested very heavily on these schools.

 

Once reality dawns they want to sell off.

 

Education!

 

Where are you ?

Hologram Aham Brahamasmi Veda Particle Physics

In Hinduism on May 6, 2014 at 19:37

I participated a Function on the occasion of the release of a Book Downloading Vedic Secrets,,From Quantum Vacuum Filed to Gayatri Mantra  as a

Guest Speaker.

 

 

Description of the World as a Hologram

Holographic Universe Hinduism

 

There were intricate queries on Holograms while discussing Particle Physics ans Indian Philosophy.

 

I think readers might be interested in understanding this concept in simple terms.

 

Physics explains that we see things through our eyes in a series of images.

 

Eyes see these individual images as one when these images are presented to our Retina ,

 

The human eye and its brain interface, the human visual system, can process 10 to 12 separate images per second, perceiving them individually.[1] The threshold of human visual perception varies depending on what is being measured.

 

When looking at a lighted display, people begin to notice a brief interruption of darkness if it is about 16 milliseconds or longer.[2] 

Observers can recall one specific image in an unbroken series of different images, each of which lasts as little as 13 milliseconds.[3] 

When given very short single-millisecond visual stimulus people report a duration of between 100 ms and 400 ms due to persistence of vision in the visual cortex.

This may cause images perceived in this duration to appear as one stimulus, such as a 10 ms green flash of light immediately followed by a 10 ms red flash of light perceived as a single yellow flash of light.[4] Persistence of vision may also create an illusion of continuity, allowing a sequence of still images to give the impression of motion”

In simple English this means that our eyes see separate images individually and connect them as one whole.

Which means that any simple single image contains the larger picture which we see as a Whole(but the whole comes later in terms of Space and Time concept, but this is overcome by our eyes!)

Based on this restriction imposed on our eyes Hologram evolves.

 

A hologram is a photographic picture that is composed of a great number of small parts, all of which contain the picture as a whole.

When we break up the hologram in many pieces, we end up with as many small but complete pictures of the whole.

Precisely what the Mahavakyas of the Vedas declare,

 

“Aham Brahmaasmi”, Iam That

 

“Tattvam Asi’. You Are That

 

“Soham Asmi’,He/It id That,

 

Pragyanam Brahma’Consciousness is Brahman.

 

The whole is in the part and the part contains the whole.

 

Waves form Ocean, Ocean contains the waves.

 

Without waves there is no Ocean,

 

In the absence of Ocean there is No wave.

 

The whole universe is in You and You are in the Universe.

 

To fine tune this,

 

Universe is(in) You and You are(in) The Universe.

 

I shall post more on this from Vedas on the organisation of the Mantras, Chandas, Riks,Suktas.

Brahmins Daily Routine Details Vedas Smrtis

In Hinduism on April 26, 2014 at 08:35

Brahmins have been set higher goals o reach and are expected to follow strict adherence to Religious practices.

 

Following are the six Duties enjoined upon Brahmins.

 

“Adhyaapanam Adhyayanam
Yajanam Yaajanam Tathaa
Daanam Pratigraham Chaiva
Brahmanaanaamakalpayaat”

 

Teaching the Vedas to others, Learning Vedas through out one’s Life,Performing Yagnas/Yaagas, have these performed  for others, Accept Alms and Donate o others.

 

In addition , there are  13 additional duties/ codes of behaviour set forth for the Brahmins.

 

  • Capability to forgive
  • Kindness towards one and all
  • Holiness (External as well as Internal) & pure vegetarian
  • Follower of Truth
  • Control over all temptations
  • Hatred towards sin
  • always be in pursuit of knowledge,
  • Educating others
  • Appropriate knowledge of Vedas
  • Meditation (Manan or Chintan)
  • Knowledge of Primal Brahma

 

Lord Krishna says that control of mind, control of senses, undergoing hardships for sake of duty, purity (both internal and external), forgiveness, straightness of mind and body, belief in God, the scriptures and the world, knowledge of the sacred lore, knowledge of the God based on direct experience are the natural duties of Brahmin. (42nd Shloka, 18th Chapter)

 

 

The Sandhyas are the roots of the tree Brahma, four Vedas are branches and Karmas are its leaves, so roots must be cared always, means Sandhyas are must for Brahmin.  LordBrahma has defined six essential duties to Brahmins;

 

Brahmin's Duties

Duty of A Brahmin is to pray for All.

 

Learn Vedas and inspire others for it, Yajna by self and inspire others.

 

Get donations and donate further to others.

 

Daily Routine of A Brahmin.

 

Get up two hours  before the Sunrise (Five Nazhikais before the Sunrise,One Nazhikai=24 minutes).-Panca -panca-usatkale.

 

 

Cleans the teeth, take bathes in cold water and perform sandhyavandana and japa.

 

There are Mantras to be recited during cleaning the teeth(Danta Daavana Mantra), Bathing.

 

One must take Bath in a River 0r Pond a well at Home, the well water must be used only for Veda Kriyas.

 

Next, aupasana and agnihotra. the”devayajna”, sacrifices to the gods, followed by   “Brahmayajna”, the daily study and chanting of the Vedas.

 

As part of this rite there are some tarpanas or libations to be offered. (For people following certain sutras these come later).

 

Then, the Brahmin must teach his disciples the Vedas, adhyapana, gather flowers himself for the puja he is to perform.

 

He must seek for his food (Bhikshai) and for the materials for the conduct of various sacrifices.

 

The Brahmin has the right to seek alms, but it is a restrictive, it means that he can take only the minimum needed for the upkeep and what is required for the performance of the rituals.

 

A considerable part of what he receives as gifts is to be paid as daksina to the priests officiating at the sacrifices he performs.

 

Of the six “occupations” of the Brahmin one is “pratigraha” or accepting gifts. Another is “dana”, making donations to others.

 

It is asked why Brahmins alone have the right to receive gifts.

 

The answer is that they are also enjoined to make gifts to others.

 

Indeed, the Brahmin accepts gifts for the purpose of the charity he has to render.

 

This apart, he has also to make gifts during the rites to be mentioned next, “atithya” and “bhutayajna”.

 

 

The Brahmin must bathe again and perform madhyahnika, followed by pitr-tarpana, that is he offers libations to the fathers.

 

This is followed by homa and puja.

 

Of the panca-mahayajnas, two remain- manusyayajna or honouring and feeding the guests and “bhutayajna” which includes bali to the creatures of the earth and feeding the poor (vaisvadeva).

 

Rice is offered in the sacrificial fire and as bali( that is without being placed in the fire).

 

In bali, food is placed in different parts of the house to the chanting of mantras food meant for outcastes, beggars, dogs, birds, etc.

 

In the manusya-yajna, guests are entertained and it is also known as atithya.

 

The Brahmin can eat only after going through these rites.

 

Until then he must not take anything except perhaps some milk or buttermilk, but never coffee or any snacks.

 

If he has any other sacrifices to conduct, paka, havir or soma, his mealtime will be further delayed.

 

If he has a sraddha to perform also he will have to eat later than usual. A sraddha ceremony must be commenced only in the “aparahna”:

 

Rites meant for the gods may be performed only after the completion of the sraddha.

 

After his meal, the Brahmin must read the Purans.

 

Then teach  members of other castes their hereditary vocations, arts and crafts.

 

He does not have a moment for rest or relaxation.

 

Take evening bath, sandhyavandana, sacrifices and japa.

 

Vaisvadeva has to be performed at night also before the Brahmin has his meal and retires to bed.

 

On most nights he takes only light food consisting of fruits, milk.(Pakahaara)

 

Or as an exception , he can take  fresh food prepared out of Rice, like Idli, Dosa or Upma

 

On Ekadasi he has to fast the whole day.

 

There is not a moment without work.

 

The sastras  thus impose on him a life of hardship and austerity, a life of utter physical and mental discipline.

 

Even today Brahmins who work in offices or other establishments must try to live according to the sastras.

 

They must get up at 4 a. m. (Brahma muhurta), perform aupasana, agnihotra, Brahmayajna, etc, in the traditional manner.

 

They may perform puja and madhyahnika during the sangava time (8. 24 a. m. to 10. 48 a. m. ).

 

“Madhyahnika” as the name suggests is a midday rite but, making allowances for present-day life, it may be performed during the sangava kala.

 

In the evening , the rites may be gone through in the sastric manner.

 

Even those who are on the morning shift and have to rush to their places of work must perform the rites as best they can.

 

In the evening the Gayatri-japa be extended to compensate for non-performance in the morning.

 

If it is morning shift for a week, will it not be mid-shift or night shift in the subsequent weeks?

 

There could be adjustments made to suit these timings.

 

Brahmins must feel repentant if they fail to perform the rites they are duty-bound to perform.

 

They must devote the years of their retirement to the pursuit of their dharma instead of feeling sorry for not going out to work.

 

There are rare cases —perhaps one in a lakh—of people who have learned the Vedas during their retirement and lived the rest of their life according to the tenets of the sastras.

 

The rites of our religion go back to a time when no other faith was prevalent.

 

We must make every effort to ensure that they do not cease to be performed.

 

They are not meant for our sake alone [as individuals] but for the welfare of all mankind.
