Increasing Commercialization of Education in India and its side effects?

In 2008, I first wrote about this issue at Increasing Commercialization of Education in India and that time, it was the start of commercialisation  of education to earn huge money by exploiting the innocent students and their parents. After 7 years, the situation has even become worst and thanks to the negative attitude of progressive governments towards the education and especially towards government schools and institutes, the private universities and colleges are making rich even richer.

Commercialization, Education, Side effectsI am not against private institutes and private universities, but I feel that every person should have access to good and quality education at the affordable price. In last few years, the quality of government backed institutes have decreased drastically while the spread of private players has increased many times. Some of these private institutes and universities are doing good jobs; however, many of them are here to make money only.



Recently, my wife took admission in B.Ed in a famous private institute of Punjab. Their fee structure is higher than other institutes; however, this institute lacks good facilities like clean bathrooms and proper seating arrangement. As I discussed in the last article, there is a nexus of businessmen, bureaucrats and politicians to make money through private institutes.

When people don't find good quality institutes around, then they have no option but to enroll in these private institutes. Many of these institutes are run by rich businessmen with the support of Politicians and bureaucrats. The main purpose of the creation of these institutes and university is only to make money; therefore, they sometimes compromise of good quality education.

As many politicians and bureaucrats earn huge profit through these institutes; therefore, they don't take interest in encouraging government institutes or increasing quality standards in government schools and colleges.

Today, Government run schools are almost dying in most of the states of India due to poor quality of education, lack of basic facilities for students and no control of teachers. Sadly, we don't hear any voice from a prominent leader on this issue. Due to corrupt practices and money making attitude, these private institutes have become money making machines.



In India, we have a huge population of uneducated and poor parents. They feel that they are poor because they are uneducated; therefore, they do everything to educate their children so that they can live a good life.

All these private institutes are exploiting this mindset of people. On one side our government says that education is a basic right of people and on the other side, it fails to provide quality education at an affordable price.

In ancient India, education has always remained free so that it can reach every person who deserves it; however, thanks to present mindset of the commercialization of education, we see education being sold at very high prices.

Education in India needs to be freed from the hands of money makers so that we can provide quality education at the affordable rate to all deserving people. It is wrong to cheat students in the name of education by providing them with poor education at very high cost.

It is very much possible for our governments to ensure quality education for everyone at an affordable cost; however, due to deep rooted corruption in system, we do not see any positive outcome.

Importance of clean environment

Some Easy methods to increase immunity during Covid (Coronavirus)

Though India did well in dealing with the first strain of Corona Virus we failed on many fronts when we faced the second wave. It looked that we were not prepared for the stronger and deadly second wave of the Corona. We may blame the government or the bad healthcare system, however, there is also a problem in us. First, we don't follow the rules and second, many of us don't enjoy strong immunity to fight the Corona virus. By increasing our immunity, we can increase our chances of survival from the Coronavirus. There are some methods through which we can make our immune system strong. However, due to the fast lifestyle, we have stopped carrying about our bodies.  Step 1- Spend some time in the Sun - The problem with today's lifestyle is that we don't spend much time
