Machined Childhood

There is a machine called school
Run by these Trojan Horses who rule
We are assembled there as a tool
To fit in this machine as a fuel
There is a system called exams
Developed by these intelligent mass
We are tested there till we pass
To accomplish their desired tasks
They buy us with our money
And teach us how to speak punny
They built these machines to run forever
Where they can earn forever
It’s time to control this epidemic
And forceful teachings of these academic
And all those collection of thoughts and impressions
That try alter our emotions
Let’s break this chain of fake teachings
Where we get to hear their preaching
Where we cannot be free and who we are
It is the need of this hour
Let those children play to their hearts
Let them play their soulful songs
Let them teeth show their smiles
Let them laugh for a while
Let them learn to play guitar
Let’s not burden them with home work for hours
Let’s not make them go through
what we have gone
Let them build their own world full of stars

      Education has become a business. And everyone is teaching children to just become the part of this bigger machine called economy. And this has transformed into a bigger issue, people are not able to understand what they want,specifically in India. Depression, stress, these are majorly the by product of modern education.

  7. I am always more in tune with collaborative learning, than with programmed instruction. Any time I have been told how to instruct, it’s been a bust. The current generation of children know full well why they are here and can easily help devise a quality system of learning. All we need do is listen.

      Yess, agree with you. But sadly it is also true that as far as I have seen people here in India, the most children they are trained like machines to do things. And to achieve what parents want and then they learn to accept it as future or I must say their fate. It is not happening everywhere. There are exceptions also. Not everyone is being forced, but the amount of pressure these children go through is enormous. So as a generation of people it is our responsibility to not let this happen anymore. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„

  9. Didn’t the Dali Lama say if every child was taught to meditate, we’d get rid of war in a generation?

      I dont know, if he did or not. But yes, we are using the most important things that we invented or discovered not for the good of humanity but for wars. These technologies can be used for the better of humanity but building warheads and fighter planes what we are doing. And education system is providing manpower to it not for the good of humanity.
