India is a land of brainy people, outstanding everyone in most fields is customary for Indians. Satya Nadella is another one of those brains who have proved that Indian intellect is the best by becoming the new CEO of Microsoft. However, the question is whether the Indian System is also the best. We do not think so. No Indian that has achieved something big as an Indian citizen and same goes with Nadella, he abandoned India a long time ago and went on to become one of the greatest minds of all time. Becoming a CEO of Microsoft and having a net worth of $45 million and a salary of $1.2 million is definitely a big deal.
There is no doubt that Indian system gives people an opportunity to raise to a great level but this level is limited. On the other hand, US system helps raise Indian people to the top possible levels. Is it not a mock right on the face of Indian system? The top institutes in India like IIM’s and IIT’s do not allow most people to get the admission there only a few of them can get in by qualifying some of the most difficult examinations. Getting in to Harvard University is far easier than getting into India’s top institutes. Therefore, Indians do apply for foreign universities mostly US.
A simple review about Indian education system said that the system is designed for students to keep out not get in which is entirely true. This is all due to the caste system that encourages different castes and keeps the best students out but the others in. Another problem with the system is that it encourages talkers rather than doers. Some people believe in doing the work rather than just talking about it but these types of people are not allowed to progress they are just kept isolated from best education.
Indians are jealous. From the very beginning of education, the students are taught to copy other person’s success rather than doing something on their own. Avoiding risks is another problem that Indian system follows, Indians do not believe in taking risks they believe in avoiding them making it hard for them to grow in their lives. In addition, being happy with what is available and not striving to achieve excellence is also a problem with Indian system.
Satya Nadella’s success might be a major concern but it is not Indians who should celebrate his accomplishment rather Americans who provided him with an opportunity to “rise and shine.”
