Important Ideas: “Science is a key which unlocks for mankind a store of nature.”
In the present day of keen competition and hard struggle, general education is found to be sadly insufficient to procure for man his livelihood .The number of men with general education is legion and all the various departments where these men can be provided are literally packed. The unemployment problem is growing keener and keener every day and unrest and discontent are daily gaining ground.
Technical education means teaching students and others some practical or mechanical art. It includes training in trade, commerce, carpentry, weaving, agriculture, medicines and engineering. It helps to meet the needs of today’s world of machines. Those who get such education become technical experts or technicians.
Technical education plays a very pivotal role in the modem age. It produces engineers, builders, doctors and technicians. It promotes the material and economic advancement. People begin to have faith in the dignity of labor. We can save a lot of foreign exchange if we have our own technical experts.
“Man loves to wonder and that is the seed of science.”
Technical education is lacking in Pakistan. Our schools and colleges produce men who are fit only to be clerks. Our youth hankers after office jobs. They dislike working in factories and hating to learn practical skills. This is why unemployment is on the rise in the country. Poverty in Pakistan is due to the neglect of technical education. Our country is rich in raw material resources, but we cannot enjoy the advantages only because we are not equipped with any technical knowledge.
“Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense.”
We can make speedy agricultural progress by using machines. To become self-sufficient in food, we shall have to set up industries that produce agricultural machines. We need a great number of highly qualified technical experts and well-trained technicians to handle, look after and repair machines. This is possible only it we have schools, colleges and universities where technical and scientific education is imparted to the students.
Pakistan is a developing country. We have to build new roads, hospitals, bridges and dams, and for this we need engineers and skilled workers. We should be able to use our natural resources like coal, gas and electricity to make Pakistan a developed country.
In all the important cities of Pakistan, technical schools and institutions are being opened every year. We need more and more such institutions. The idea of the dignity of labor should be popularized among the students. They should be encouraged to get technical education for their bright future. In spite of the immense value of technical education, the attitude of educated people towards it is not what it should be .
In short, technical education makes a country rich, prosperous and resourceful, but it has certain limitations also. Too much of technical education changes a man into a machine. We should never lose our sense of proportion. We should also have an element of liberal education in technical education.
“A man of science is just a student of nature and derives his inspiration from her.”(Romans)
12. AN IDEAL STUDENT
“The blackness of the ink of a scholar is more sacred than the redness of the blood of a martyr.”
Student life is a temporary period of life but it is of vital importance. It is the time when the seed of learning and wisdom is to be sown. As a student sows at this stage, so shall he reap in the future?
Children are the valuable asset of a nation. A Nation that produces a generation of talented and hardworking youth marches ahead on the path of progress. However, to create quality citizens is not an easy task. It cannot be achieved overnight. The first step for that is to produce ideal students in our schools and colleges. These ideal students would go on to become ideal citizens.
Who is an ideal student? There isn’t one definite answer to that because there are many qualities that together define an ideal student. The most important quality of an ideal student is that he takes up the responsibility of being student. He studies incessantly and works hard to ameliorate his/her performance
In each exam. But his objective of studying is not to score only good marks or secure a high rank. Beyond that he has a thirst for knowledge, an interest to learn more about everything he observes.
“Learning is like rowing upstream, not to advance is to drop back.”
An ideal student has a definite goal. He strives really hard to achieve his goal. He always wins laurels. His determination drives him fast on the path where common students dare not walk. He keeps pace with ever changing times and keeps himself abreast of the new trends. He attends his classes with a receptive mind. He is hardworking, consistent, studious and industrious in his studies.
“They toil while other sleep they dare while other fly.”
An ideal student is well mannered and he lives in accordance with the strict codes of conduct and discipline. This is the time of life when the foundation of character is laid. It is said: if wealth is lost, nothing is lost; if health is lost, something is lost; if character is lost, everything is lost. A student without sense of discipline is like a ship without a rudder. It sails adrift and never reaches the harbor. He must follow the 141es of the school and obey the orders of his teachers. His behavior in school as well as at home should be exemplary.
He is prudent in the selection of friends. He is fully conscious to ensure that no evil tempts him. He knows very well that a single rotten egg spoils the whole basket. An ideal student tries to understand how much he owes to his parents. He realizes that he owes a large debt to parents. He never forgets to look after them when they enter the old life. He must respect and obey his parents.
An ideal student studies with devotion, speaks after thinking, leaps after looking, decides after meditation and serves with sincerity. He is neither a book worm nor a frog in a small well. He takes part in curricular as well as co-curricular activities. He is really a torch bearer of all that is good.
But participating in competitions and winning events is not the only big thing in life, and an ideal student knows that very well. Virtues like kindness, compassion, respect, sincerity, honesty, politeness are equally important in today’s world, and these qualities are found in abundance in an ideal student. He treats his parents, teachers and elders with respect, and speaks politely to everybody. In times of crisis for his friends, he is the first person to stand by them. He never Boasts of his achievements and never gets depressed by his failures. He is always cheerful and maintains a positive approach to life. He spreads hope and happiness wherever he goes.
Last but not the least; an ideal student loves his parents and members of the family very much and does as. Much as he can to help them and to keep them happy. He never wastes his parents’ hard-earned money and believes that knowledge is the biggest wealth he can acquire. An ideal student is one who has the potential to become a great philanthropist. He is not a man with a limited scope. He aims at becoming the savior and hero of humanity.
13. HOSTEL LIFE
The phrase, “there is no place like home” is soon to give way a likely new phrase, “there is no place like hostel.” The people, who have worn their days out in hostel, if asked, will regard those moments the best of their lives. Hostel is a palace where one is master of one’s own self. Students are free from. Many social and moral restrictions like parental pressure, sibling rivalry and other social conformities. It is almost as if they grow a pair of wings, and are ready to fly high, to live the life of their dreams.
There are many advantages of living in a hostel. The dweller needs to take care of his own affairs, manage his own stuff, and take his own decisions and so on. This creates a sense of responsibility in him at a relatively early stage, as compared to day scholars who would still be nestled in the warmth of parental care. The students who depend on their own develop a practical view of life than those who are always pampered by parents. Hostel is boon for those who have a disturbed home atmosphere. Homes are not meant for studies. There is less likelihood that parents arrange a corner for their children to study there.
Hostels are purpose-built: these are built for students or job oriented people, keeping in view their needs. Often they are near the places where these people go for study or job, saving their time. So staying in a hostel comes as a blessing in disguise as it keeps students away from all the troubles and lets them focus on more important things, especially studies.
From an academic perspective also, staying in a hostel proves to be advantageous. We are far removed from the day-today distractions and other household responsibilities at home. This gives us a lot of time to spend on studies, and secure better grades.
Besides studies, hostel life provides us many opportunities to take part in extra-curricular activities like arts and sports. In most colleges, it is the hostel mates who take up active roles in sports and other organizing events because they can afford time. By getting involved in all these activities, they develop valuable qualities like responsibility, dedication, hard work and problem solving skills, which would stand them in great stead for their future corporate lives.
Hostel life also provides a chance to peep into true nature of one’s fellow beings. On duty or in college, people follow a uniform code that provides them an opportunity to conceal their real face behind a mask. But, when one lives in hostel, his roommate judges his true nature that couldn’t be otherwise in years. How they wear, eat, sleep either cleanly or filthily; selflessly or selfishly, everything dawns upon. Friend’s responses to each other’s work as mirror for the wise to improve, develop, and mend behavior. Hostel life has its own share of dangers too. Freedom from parental control can be advisable only if it is used properly. Students, especially those who have had to live in a highly restricted environment, suddenly cherish the newly found freedom of a hostel. Their only aim would be enjoying. These people often lose sight of what is right or wrong, and end up with disastrous consequences. Some of them are even misled into drugs, gambling and street crimes. Also if the gang they belong to likes to hang out all the time, they too might be misguided .This would take away their focus from the most important objective, study. These are not the only hazards; hostel life has got other disadvantages like bad food, dirty surroundings and lack of proper facilities.
In the final analysis, we can say that hostel life is an opportunity not a trial. It develops maturity, confidence and modernity among the dwellers of it. Gone are the days when people wrote letters to their sons to behave sensibly in hostels. Polonius (a character in Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet) uttered memorable words of advice to his son while sending him to hostel. But now the children are the trend-setters, for they see new ways of life and expect their families to adapt them. The heart of the matter is to use this phase of life reasonably that would benefit the person in his later years.
14. A PICNIC PARTY
I suppose I would still prefer to sit under a tree with a picnic basket rather than under a gas pump, but signs and comic strips are interesting as a subject matter.
No picnic cycle of life is taking its course and making our lives dull and drab. Picnic is an outing occasion that helps us to get rid of the monotonous life. People all over the world spend a lot of money to have a break from their mundane life. They enjoy themselves by going to different resorts. The time they spend away from their home and offices makes them relaxed and refreshed. They come back to their homes and work place after the pleasure trip with greater energy and vigour. David Daiches says that breaks in routine are blessed ones the other weekend 1 suggested to my friends to go somewhere for outing. We discussed and decided to go to a farmhouse at Head Balochi. It is some forty kilometers away from Lahore. According to the schedule we were supposed to depart from the college campus at 9:00 a.m. We had our breakfast and then our bus left for the destination. Our journey started with a prayer and then began the nonstop fun. We were told that the sound system of the bus was out of order. It
Was a great disappointment for us, but soon we realized that it was a blessing in disguise. We decided to enjoy ourselves by singing songs. One of us was a very good singer and he amused us with his melodious voice. After an hour we reached our destination. We had heard about the beauty of the place, but we were convinced that seeing believes.
“Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter.”
The pure and cool breeze over there gave us a soothing welcome and we feasted our eyes on the scenic beauty. We sat there for some time and enjoyed the beautiful place. The lake was the first one to attract the visitors. The boats in the lake invited us to have pleasure in water. We enjoyed a good rowing there. We splashed one another with water and soon all our clothes were wet. It was great fun and excitement for us all.
We caught sight of a tube well. Although it was a bit cold, one of us jumped into the pond and we followed the suit. A few of us stayed away from the cold water, but we pushed them also into the pond. We enjoyed ourselves for some time there and then we felt hungry.
We had ordered fresh fish which was the special food of that place. We had a hearty meal which we would remember for a long time. Then we had cold drinks and ate fruit. We also went for the pig- prey. We chased some pigs but we could not kill them because we had no guns or anything to kill them with. We, however, captured these thrilling moments in our video cameras. It was about 5 p.m. and the sun was descending. We decided to leave for Lahore. The journey back to Lahore was a Memorable one. We sang songs and cut jokes. At seven, we reached Lahore and got back to our homes after a very beautiful trip.
To sum up, l must say that the excursions and outings play a very important role in the overall development of our personality. These excursions give us a chance to enjoy some moments away from our hectic routine of life. These outings make us prepare to face the challenges of life in a better way. These excursions and outings help us to understand our fellow beings. They also educate us informally. Someone has rightly said
“When Igor to travel, I go to school.”
This feeling creates unity among the fellow beings who live as a family and share one another’s sorrows and joys .This sense of belonging develops in them a patriotic spirit which in return urges them to sacrifice even their lives for the noble cause of their country. This feeling excites them to bulldoze all the religious, social and political differences and become a “single unity”.
Then they live and die for their home land .A true patriot serves his country sincerely and devotedly. He does not run towards other countries for personal benefit .He resists the charms of foreign influence.
“How beautiful is death, when earned by virtue who would not be that youth? What pity is it that we can die but once to serve our country?”
Patriotism creates a very broader outlook that is a person arises above his own self .He prefers the interest of the country to his own interest .This enables him to look at life on a very broad perspective.
But there is one thing regarding patriotism which should be kept in mind .Patriotism means love for one’s country but it does not at all imply the sense of hatred for other country. On the other hand, the spirit of self-sacrifice should be extended to the entire human society. It means that patriotism should teach us love for and service to humanity.
