Should Government make it compulsory for IIT students to serve nation for minimum 2 years?

 

There are two kind of persons who leave India for work:

  1. Those who are the best and want more and more money. They mostly want to go to USA, Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan. Once settled, they do not want to come back. They hardly sent money to India for family as they have so many expenses there.
  2. Those who fail to find decent job and decided to go out of nation for earning living. These people normally find jobs in Asian and African Countries. The highest density of such peoples is found in middle east. They always dream to go back to India and start some business or to find a decent job back in India. They send most of their earnings back to India pumping billions of dollars of foreign money to home country.

The very purpose of creating IIT’s were to produce excellent talent to serve the nation and not to throw away the Taxpayers money spent on IITians. The fees IITians pay is a fraction of expenditure on them by Government. Everyone has right to have good job decent life but our first duty is towards our Nation. If we are able to secure good job here, we must not run behind Dollars. India need talented people. Our country will become poorer if we continue this brain drain. I know here we have lot of problems. But running away with problem is not bravery. Facing them is bravery.

30% Indians are living below the poverty line. Only cutting edge technology, Industrialization and modernization of agriculture can uplift them. For all that we need talented people to stay here and work for Nation. So students of all premium colleges should dedicate 2 years in service of motherland from where they received everything before they start thinking about themselves.

ROBOTS (Humanoid): What You Must Know About Future

 

 

Moshe Vardi, a professor of computer science at Rice University in Texas said, “Society needs to confront this question before it is upon us: If machines are capable of doing almost any work humans can do, what will humans do?

Sam Harris, the co-founder and CEO of Project Reason, said on his podcast Waking Up. “Ultimately, if we manage to build truly labor-saving devices, devices that don’t simply open up a space for new forms of human labor, but devices that actually cancel the need for human labor (and I think we’re doing that), then you really have the ultimate recipe for an intolerable degree for wealth inequality.

Being a Mechanical Engineer, above questions bothers me sometimes. Automation and Robotics, at present, is not killing jobs but rather replacing low skilled jobs to high skilled jobs. Suppose you automate a factory. Entire labor is replacing by machine. But to run machines you need operators and you also need Engineers and technicians for maintenance. On other hand, automation is supporting another industry where these machines are being made. We need more workforce to convert ore into metal. So machines are creating more jobs for skilled workers. Uneducated, unskilled are becoming jobless and more jobs for skilled workers. This is the present situation. Future will be different.

By Year 2070, We will have self-maintained human like Robots working on renewable energy. Equipped with AI. Such self-sufficient robots will work better than human and will not demand money or increment in salary. Boon for rich industrialist but danger for human labor. Rich will become richer and poor will be poorer. Some human will get paid for creative works. For example: Even today we buy handicrafts when we already have high quality stuff made by machines available in market. Animation will replace human actors from movies. Robots will be very expensive and most of the rich people’s will be able to buy one or two of them. Every year new models will arrive in market and robot manufacturer will be the richest people along with those companies producing software and hardware parts of robots. There is a misconception that the first human to be replaced by robots were labor! But it might not be true because no one will buy an expensive robot to replace unskilled labor. Actually these smart robots will replace high salaried and high skilled managers, engineers, doctors and those who are working in dangerous situations like soldiers and workers who works in chemical and radioactive areas.  Only those peoples will survive who can buy robots or have some creative and intellectual abilities. For every other work there will be robots. Even for prostitution there will be sexy robots. Maximum one person will run entire company. As technology will become cheaper, more companies will start making cheaper robots and this will be the time when we will be having robots for our house work and labor class. This will create biggest difference between rich and poor ever existed in human history. Sam Harris is right in his assertion. if we do not act now, situation will be very different and sad for coming generations.

Robot will work and get paid on behalf of the owner (who will already be rich) of robot. Owner of robot will sit and enjoy. On other hand, only those poor will survive for little longer who will have land for farming for themselves.

Time makes impossible things possible:    

Year 2100: Self Reproducing robot. One of the fundamental trait of life is reproduction. Such robots will be alive if ever formed. They will either replace the humans or there will be very few families across the globe controlling them. Induced artificial evolution will select robots over humans based on survival for the fittest. The time for asking question like should machines replace human is gone, because such question was already answered and settled in favor of machines. Human creative mind has carving for challenges. We will not stop until we destroy our self or leave to the stars.

Of course, all this is predicted considering everything else as static in future. But revolutionary ideas and new reforms are part of human civilization. Such reforms change the course of future entirely. There was no time in history where one innovation dictated the whole future course of action. If any new reform took place at global level, then we might be having a different future. A much batter world with minimal difference between rich and poor. Where villages will grow like cities. Every child will have access to education and good life, every old man and women will be taken care by. A future we all want for our coming generations, not a future entrusted by few for their greed in the name of technology.

Education system in India:

Finding a decent job is the primary purpose of education in India for parents and students! Students and parents have nothing to do with learning, gaining knowledge, understanding things around us and making life better using the knowledge and information gained. That’s why we produce minimum numbers of Nobel Prize winners and maximum nos. of Doctors and Engineers. All +2 (Intermediate) students who secure good marks in exam have only two choices-either to be Engineer or Doctor. As if Art, literature, Economics, geography, Commerce and Science etc. are not worthy for studies. Only those who were not able to secure admission in Engineering and medical  opt for other discipline with heavy heart.

Schools do not adopt practical and creative approach to teach students, they just want students to memories notes and vomit them back in exam. Most of the science labs in school are not functional or have faulty equipment’s. The condition of govt. school is even worst.

We fail to realise that the basic purpose of education is not getting job but learning and developing our self as intellectuals. Be well-educated not well-trained.

 Kaabil bano, Kaamyabi jhak maar ke peche aaygi!

Students must realise that they must use their brain to think new ideas. Don’t make it an encyclopedia by memorising everything. You can buy an encyclopedia in Rs 500 but you can not get a thinking and intelligent brain even after spending millions of dollars.

The guy who is labelled dumb in India, becomes genius when moved to western countries. Because here, asking question with elders is immoral. Doubting is irreligious and saying truth which goes against any religion is heresy. In west kids are encouraged to ask question, they are free to discuss their new ideas and they are rewarded for breaking taboos. In western countries students are not forced to peruse engineering or medical courses but they are encourage to take a course which they find interesting.

Some one rightly said “The purpose of school is less about preparing individuals to live independently and more about preparing individuals to live as members of a society by imparting knowledge about the world. In other words, the role of schooling is to equip individuals with the skills necessary to participate in the social life of their community and to change the nature of the social order as needed or desired.”
