Did Lord Macaulay succeed? Undoubtedly, it’s the time to analyze the question whether Macaualy succeeded in his aim or not? Before doing that first, let us review his plan. Macaulay, while delivering his speech in British Parliament on Feb.2, 1835, said “I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen a person who is a beggar, or a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibres that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage and therefore I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system…”

Indeed, our youngsters have been demoralized, dollar-oriented and self-esteemed. It is a matter of pity that they don’t have time for their parents. So, how can one can think that they would be committed to the society? Most of them either get busy earning dollars through MNCs or plan to settle abroad.

You will be surprised to know that Indian Government invests a huge amount to produce one doctor or an engineer with a hope that they would serve the nation. Unfortunately, all such hopes come to an end when these selfish people settle in developed countries just for the sake of their financial upliftment. Does this scenario not depict the one part of Macaulay’s dream?

Secondly, the other aspect of the coin is that the present education system has increased the strength of only degree holders who are lacking in practical knowledge. They have been adopting the system of cramming and vomiting of information. That’s why the prestigious corporate are also facing this problem and not able to employ the brilliant, intelligent and dedicated persons. Actual essence of education like moral values and culture of India has becomes obsolete subject for them. The demand of introduction of morals and ethics in educational system is not new.

In 1948, the University Education Commission had said, “The possibilities of including religious and moral studies in the academic syllabi of the universities be explored.” It is essentially, indispensable that the students are told through education that the key to genuine development is the self-assertion. We can’t achieve the goal unless we impart the moral and ethical values, through an important system of education among all the section of society. In fact, we need such an education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s feet. “Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.” Swami Vivekanand.
