MEDIA IN SCHOOLS OF PANJGUR!


 

 

Reading, learning, writing, tests, examinations, questions!

All students in panjgur are almost irritated by educational system in Panjgur, as mentioned above activities students’ seemed to not take so much interest in studies as we want. I myself as a student can say I am also distend from studies my self, because all the time students are found in learning tests,exams,reading,writing and over such works. The administrations never get a try to think over something different that’s why our nation is not getting good persons as it was being given before by talented students.
There may be some reasons due to which they withdraw this responsibility:
1) May be for their reputation,

2) May be for orders given above,

3) May be they will get busy for a long period that would effect their personal issues
4)they are might afraid of some political leaders.
Mentioning above reasons, means that their can be a lot of reasons that they don’t want to promote the education among students with some creative funs. As being a student I have found that from nursery class students are said: unless you don’t work hard, you can’t be a good doctor and engineer. This world has crossed over my head many times and I have thought to mention it in front of them because this thing jeopardizes the life of a student, they start to think that only these two are the fields in which we can go and are good ones, why not writers,journalists,news editors,lawers,experts?and why doctors and engineers only?
This thing makes believe the student that they are only able for these two fields. Neither they can go in another field nor are they able. The rounded point all over means we ourselves don’t want to make our education that much strong that it should help our nation in freedom too.
If we throw our sight in western countries and even in Pakistan, media is playing a great role in education, whenever a speech contest, quiz competition, function and all others are held so media is told to courage it and by this students take more interest in studies, because a competition raises among students to work so hard to reach there. The problem here is that we are enemies of our own recourses, we are blessed by all facilities if not so we are not that much feeble also that we could’ not make a facility for us to do something good. Some teachers in Oasis School want to promote it but again that thing comes in between that orders impel them to with draw their steps.
By media we can do a lot of things, even in Turbat, Gawadar behind media a lot of such works are being done that impels the students to study more. But unfortunately in Panjgur they don’t want to take it for a success eye, they take it easy because they might think they have all. And for that students start quieting studying as it is being seen now, Mostly 89% has quiet education instead of someone’s force. Some students go to prove the right ones in wrong due to their over confidence that further becomes a big failure for them. I can’ remember when the last fuction, presentations were held in Oasis School. The lack of such good activities immerses the education.
Here in Panjgur mostly students are compelled to learn the things by heart and they do so because it is neither the mistake of teachers nor students, it has been made a trend in education since centuries. They never think to do something ahead of it that would brighten the student’s mind. I must point out some points that need to be changed:

*Principal must be a strict one not a frank one that will destroy the education itself,
*prefects are kept that are even sometimes not able also, I don’t say that they are disable, but everything has a limit, they are chosen by age, not by talent and confidence,
*prefects must be given a chance along head girl and head boy to attend the meetings about school not only the head girl and head boy.

*Teachers must be informed to encourage the week, weaker and the weakest student more rather to encourage the talented student, not to call him/her that you are a dull you can’t do this and that work.
*The school should contain the all scientific and technological things to make the point of view of students more vast and clear not to write on board only.
*The teachers should be provided with extra information and extra periods to take that should contain extra activities not to take only eight periods that are in course.

*Media should be allowed to courage the school’s activities in order to promote the interest in students not to show its ability.
*Governmental schools should be checked by experts monthly that what is needed and what is wrong not to sew the cloths of teachers and gossip uselessly.
*Teachers should be graduated and should be aware of confrences, seminars that would promote the student’s mind setup not only with scholarships.

*books should be changed yearly that students should learn different things not the same that makes the teachers also students.
*All students should be given chance to participate in functions etc by their own ability not by ability of teachers.
*Picnics and others should be planned yearly for students’ and teachers in order to present their ideas and to defeat their dullness.
*A magazine should be made where every student’s topic should be chosen for publishing it and to bring their point of view in front of public.

*There should be weekly sports and other activities that won’t let the students to get education bore, they should take it comfortable not difficult to study.
The points which I mentioned can force the teachers to look me with a bit narrow eyes and it may effect my studies also but I am pointing out the truth and for sure” Reality is reality, it can’t be ignored”
We proud of ourselves but have we thought: for what are we actually proud?
We praise our talented students but have we thought: what will cross over week students when they hear about it?
We condemn our system but have we thought: By whom was it actually made?
We always try to be in front of all others but have we thought why week students can’t think so?
These all questions walk around my heart and some others also. There are a lot of disabilities in them who seemed to be failed in correcting them instead to take out the mistakes of others.
A place where education is being provided and teachers are not allowed to attend the parties of higher classes in school so how the students can think positively?
A society where a student can’t talk with a teacher frankly so how that society can provide good guiders?
A nation where media is banned to attend the school so how that nation can be a country?
I pity to say that how any reality is pushed down here in Panjgur and I feel so disappointed that they neither do it themselves nor they let the teachers to correct it? So sad to see this situation in private schools!

All over media can play a positive role if they agree so; otherwise the same trend will be continued to destruct hard work, talent and creativities in a student forever. We take every good thing bad and positive thing negative that is what it takes us backward.
Media is a source that can be used everywhere not only in political places but also in educational places. Whatever our administrations are doing that is also not wrong because they are compel but these all were made by us so why we found it hard to change them?
#society
#nation
#orders
#Rules
they all are not made themselves but we are made compelled by them to change our good steps according to them.
Why media can’t be allow in schools of Panjgur? Just because our culture is Balochi, so turbat is not a place where pashtoons and Punjabi live. It is also a district of Baluchistan.so it is not banned to be populated although it is promoting day by day, good doctors are being out from there, good writer and poets are being out from there because they take everything seriously and as a success eye. Here if a student presents a presentation, chemical theory or a thought so firstly discouraged by fellows themselves and secondly by some others. It should be banned not presenting ideas; negativity should be banned not positive deeds, even those all corrupt leaders should be resigned from their responsibilities who can’t perform them in a good way.
Our school’s performances are out in social networking but not on media, so isn’t that media. If we with draw this responsibility, so it means the system is not corrupt but our mind-setups are corrupted without any doubts.
“Every action has a reaction”
As they take it negatively so students also take them negative and consider them the reason of their failure.
“Weak is on top but talented are down”
Mean to say that the students that were praised in schools by teachers they then go down but those students will bring up their talent who were discouraged by teachers.
“Failure is not failure but success”
Actually when students fail a test so they are almost killed by teachers and parents, why they failed it no one thinks? It is 2012 and the trend has been started in 1999 almost so this has destructed the students mind; learn, learn and only learn. How they can do it so many times. If we do a work regularly so our heart informs us to halt it now because our mind is not based on our wishes it is king of itself.Yeah! It is good that they are given tests but:
When tests so only and just tests: by hook or crook.
When exams so only and just exams: Neither another thing nor any rest.
When monthly tests so only M.T: Not any rest in life then.
It is good but not so much that we should start hating the word” EDUCATION”.
If you want your bright name and bright tomorrow so please give it a glimpse for a while.

Cheating;A right or Failure


 

Asalam u Alekum my true readers! The point all around in our city is that everything is against the rules. If someone wants to change them so he must wish for his infamy. In our educational institutions we see that hard work has gone to vain. No one is working so hard that it should be rewarded if yes so it is concealed by our so-called guiders because they don’t want to loose their money and secondly whenever a students tries to do something good so it is not appreciated that much that they do it with a cheated way. By this situation that student is discouraged and she starts thinking that hard work has no reward here so just go to the way on which cheaters go.
We have been observing that the marks that should be given to that student who has destroyed her nights and dreams are being given to those who have only adjusted her mind-setup through cheating. It is the reality that in Panjgur a student can never progress without cheating. But this plant was planted by us so we have to root out it. Sometimes when I sit to think so I get quiet surprised of the rules they have made for getting success in fact we should stop that which is wrong but we plant it more. From our point of view by cheating we can get through success that is not wrong but it destroy our future and moreover it affects our mind setup. Our governmental teachers are also very sharp in supporting such deeds.
Once we were going to have the exams of matric so this discussion was being discussed that where to give exams in Oasis center or Governmental because there we can get more marks and here cheating is banned so we can get few marks. Why they raised this thing? Just because talent is concealed in our institutions. Here only education is being given but the creative activities in a student are always hided unless he does something himself.
Many times this thing has also been discussed that without cheating success is impossible I have been hurt very much by this whenever I wanted to raise my voice towards it so I was made silent because they may clean hands toward education. Actually whenever someone wants to do something good so he is not permited.Either he will give up the ghost or he will fail it.
Thirdly: in our institutions they give their piece of mind but they seem failed to bring foreword the creative activities of a student. Everyone in this world is bestowed by ability by almighty Allah and for making it successful he has sent guiders in shape of teachers but teachers can’t do anything because they are guided by a supervisor by which they can’t put their words a head. They always get busy just and just in education that actually means in their point of view:
E: eligible
D: drawings with
U: unique
C: classes and
A: acceptable
T: tuitions
I: in front of
O: audiences and
N: name with good deeds
But unfortunately in reality it means according to my point of view is:
E:excellent
D:devotion with
U:universal
C:creativities and
A: abysm
T:talent of
I: innovation called
O:oversead knowledge along
N:natural heartiness.
This was my definition according to my mind but how I noticed it from our schools and colleges in fact it points towards the first one. The biggest problem in our leaders is that when they are not a principal or director of a school they make very huge plains that they will turn the bad rules in a good way   but when they sit on that special and honorable chair so they forget it, sometimes they succeed also (a few of them) in making their plains successful like (Sir Zahir Hussain) but not completely as in baluchi {hosthir o gechin} they do it like this and immerse that educational institutions that might were successful and good before rather they did it now. I must mention the condition of my own school The Oasis School Academy:
It was on sun rises before when sir zahir was leading it, everyone was made oasis mania, slowly and gradually it changed into a language center where I was also studying, it went through very nice tracks, many good persons came out from it, cheating was completely banned in language classes as well in the academy. He was strict but he led it with wonderful accounts. Till now still some students can’t cheat, they are afraid of cheating because he didn’t discuss about cheating, he never taught: Cheating is your right (as some teachers said in 2012 and kept this thing in students mind that cheating is their right) if like this students will be educated so I think that education is not called education it must be called destruction.
Students get admitted in a good school that for tomorrow they could make a better future for them but here as I see, I can’t say that they will succeed.
What we have with Quetta? It is our capital but it doesn’t mean whatever is being in their schools we must apply it here. But we must try to change what is being bad in theirs.
I clearly remember that in assembly where Sir Zahir used to convince the students towards talent and struggle and students got great interest in his speeches. They never ever said that: hamarah wakh nakanh, but they said: we will follow and obey you sir!
But why not now we can hear the same sentence that we used to hear in days of Sir Zahir Hussain, Is it the disability of students or administrations? Is it the lakeness of understanding in administrations or students? Ofcourse it needs two to make a sound. Now still many principals and other teachers in schools assert that we do this, we do that but all it is for apparition. I can’t understand their giants what they really want to do.
I am really convinced and pleased by our school but a bit complaint is of understanding and bringing the creativities of students that they should really understand: we can do it!
Thanks a lot!
