I'm a 15 year old Indian residing in the United Arab Emirates. I enjoy probing into new topics and enjoy learning, but at the same time dislike the rigidity of education. I feel disappointed to see that individuals only engage in any learning because of marks and parental pressure. It's time educators begin classes on any subject with the question 'Why learn?'. They must be the ones who can bring in change by placing marks in a secondary aisle and show the students the true fun of questioning everything. We exist within an age wherein logic and reasoning have carved out a solid position.Yet, In my immediate environment, knowledge is looked at as a foreign body of ideas that is interacted with only when the need arises. Until then, they choose to don rose tinted spectacles and hide within their cocoon of false security. I dislike this.
Among the activities I enjoy devoting time to include public speaking, debating, reading, cycling, table tennis, cricket and the most interesting - spending time discussing the world with friends with similar tastes. Although sometimes I can be an awkward conversationalist, I use that to my advantage to get a few laughs.
