What is wrong with Indian education system?

I asked my kindergarten going brother, randomly a few questions.

Out of which a question was ‘How are you ?’

He said firmly, ‘Fine, Thank You’ without a blink.

അങ്ങനെ വെച്ചാൽ എന്താ? , I asked him next in our mother tongue, malayalam.

(Translation: What does that mean? )

He replied again innocently, much slower this time,

‘Fine , Thank You… it is…’

It took me a while to make him understand my question.

But he didn’t have an answer to it. He kept mum but kept looking at me with a smile and tongue out.

I call this the very fundamental problem with our Indian education system.

  1. It is indeed a problem thay our kids are being taught an alien language first and then, much later, their mothertongue. It’s no different from my own daughter who is picking up English along with an accent, but who’s Hindi is just as accented as if she were a foreigner. I wonder why, when most advanced nations stress on mothertongue do we have to still live in the British Raj era.
