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

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.


It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way.

Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is the main point of many talks and at many places where the age of the girl is more than a boy, then this example is given.


Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitabh Bachan who has marri…
