    Here we cannot blame education system alone. Children learn many things through surroundings. Nowadays social media, cenema, serials everything guide the children to do such actions.

    This is what our education system has come to. They only tell us to study, study and study. They must give equal importance to sports and other extra curricular activities. We can have more Medals in the Olympics, and there won't be these many suicides, runaways. etc. in the name of our education.

    Student Mangalore,dear student ,I understand your thoughts and saying.One thing I would like to tell ,without any basic studies ,you cant have any success in any field.First of all one should decide what u want and tell parents what u wish in future to do.Medals dont come to your feet flown .Have to work for it hard.You cant get anything today without money.For money work ,first,.without education no work.Everything is connected with another.You can work only in hotels sleep on road side.Fall to some gangsters.One has to think first ,and educate yourself same time practice your interests ,All of a sudden name and fame doesnt come.It is only fantasy one have.Reality is quite different .If you influential parents easy to get into fantasy world ,that too today with drugs and end in gutter in someones hand.Cjildrens mind is mostly like in film scene.Not yet developed.have to think twice before you get out of your home parents.Think how your parents will suffer and they have taken trouble for your success.

    Very very strand & abnormal things or way of life are taking place at the present time. Suicides, missing, mental stress, frustration and ending life. Todays youth is concentrating more on fun fare and easy life and lost for their studies and future.

    John, your reverence towards Fr. Jose is understandable. But, please don't advise any religious solution to these people, else, you will be branded as an evangelist. And, the moment they seek Fr. Jose's help, they will be doubted to be seeking a conversion.

    even young students are disillusioned as they see that in society the saffron groups are teaching them nonsense to hate other religions...in Mann ki baath...the tea boy says fry pakods..nirmala aunty says GDP will reach five million crore by selling pickle...the only education that is best under this system is to provide sanskrit education under teh trees at Takshshila...at least brain of young students will be okay..

    Badly drafted text books, un-scientific teaching methodology, dictatorial attitude of teachers and rote learning are some of the reasons why children loose interest in studies. In my school days, the teachers spoke only to the brilliant students. Others were left to fend for themselves. Some teachers had caste bias. They liked students of their own caste. Our education system has to root out these fundamental problems and attitudes in order to attract everyone towards education.
