Last night, over dinner conversation we were arguing whether education can solve some of the current problems of India. Though sounds logical, the problem remains how to impart education. Can you send a child a school and automatically assume that it will come out educated. You went to a top graduate school, got your PhD, and now you call yourself educated. But how to objectively measure the markers of education? How do we determine that someone is educated? These are difficult questions and we don’t have any clear answer. Remember, the fifteen people team that decided the “final solution of Jewish problem”, the notorious Wannsee conference, included seven PhDs.
Update ( July 4, 2014): Khitish-da, in the comment, pointed out there were 7 PhDs not 5. I updated the post and the title accordingly. Thanks Khitishda.
