IITs turn students into mechanical robots
These students stay in a mental mode where they are unable to decide the difference between right and wrong. The weak undergo the bullying of the bulky and hefty boys and are left to think that they can play Kabaddi with mathematical calculations, swim in the ocean of chemistry and dance with physics along the trajectory motion of beach volleyball.

MY PHONE rings sharply at 12:45 pm once in a fortnight. You may wonder how exactly I could tell this. Yes, I can. And that is my sister who studies in Narayana Junior college who vents out all her problems in a single phone call.

The college is famous for its ranks in IITs. The college twists students to gain the juice of IITs. The college can turn students as mechanical robots. The college, which designs an application and let the students ‘run’ according to their ‘command’. The college can ‘coach well’ rather than ‘teach well’. The college manufactures instruments for the society.

The parents want their wards to be the products of IITs. Parents inject their dreams into the brains of their children without considering their interests. Then, how could a child know what suits him or what he wants to become. Taking an advantage of all these things, the corporate colleges advertise showcasing the statistical semi-successful results' data of their institutions thus, creating a harbor to loot the money of the parents. Parents are still stuck in the thinking that the more they invest the money, the more the marks and the better rank their wards would get. Today, in Hyderabad and major cities in Andhra Pradesh an intermediate student's fee is one lakh rupees on an average.

The question is what are the students learning there? How successful are the students after joining IITs for their two years of rigorous mind labor in their junior colleges. They move up and down in their vertical cuboidal jails to attend to the boring methods of lectures. The students stick to classrooms and reading halls with their heavy loads of books trying hard to transfer everything that is in the book to their minds.

Hold on.. This is not the case of all. But, only few. What about the rest? The rest are the students who do not desire to sit in those classrooms and weigh those dumbbells and scratch their pens over the papers. But, due to the regular class tests and grand test they have to turn up their mind to read forcibly and hence they mug-up blindly. They read not by heart but they simply move the data by hard.

Besides all these, the temptations of teenage attack them monstrously. They stay in a mental mode of mind where they are unable to decide what is right and what is wrong. The weak undergo the bullying of the bulky and hefty boys. The lack of leisure adds to the frustration of the students. They were left to think that they play kabaddi with mathematical calculations, swim in the ocean of chemistry and dance with physics along the trajectory motion of beach volley-ball.

Students, right from their schooling onwards, have to be made accessible to various fields of procuring knowledge. Dance, drama, art, crafts, music, films etc. have to be taught in every school, irrespective of cities and villages. The schools should also enhance the skills of students in choosing right career. The students should be made to focus on their particular fields of interest at a very early stage. The government should not be biased on a single professional study (like Engineering) and instead, provide equal job opportunities to every other course.
