8 2014 4:57 pm Related News Like Gandhi’s India it must keep its thousand windows open Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia’s pronouncement on the state of higher education in the National Capital Territory of Delhi was a controversy waiting to happen Not that all is well with this aspect of life in Delhi We have witnessed year after year the panic of parents and wards — victims of the mismatch between demand and supply — each time the dreaded admission season approaches Aspirants to colleges of some repute living in torment of the ever-ascending cut-offs is painfully familiar If as the education minister laments of the 265 lakh students who graduate from schools in Delhi only 90000 manage to get into Delhi colleges and the remaining 175 lakh fall by the wayside it is admittedly not a happy or acceptable state of affairs The magnitude of the problem is amplified by the compulsion to demonstrate a change for the better almost overnight especially in a context of long-suppressed but newly awakened expectations Reservation is a palliative not an antidote The proposal to reserve 90 per cent of the seats for Delhi residents in DU colleges which are “fully funded by the government” cannot be claimed to be a huge leap in quantitative terms for the young people of Delhi Only about 12 institutions — a small percentage of the total number of colleges in Delhi — belong to this category The government intends to start new colleges as well as enhance the delivery of education Sisodia does not appear to be seeing this single step as an alternative to addressing the grievances that crowd the ground The proposed reservation a relic from the previous Congress government is more a means to mollify than to remedy The “sons of the soil” concept which underlies this proposal is nothing new The dissonance that the minister’s approach provokes in certain quarters stems perhaps largely from the dual status of Delhi which is not only a Union Territory but also the nation’s capital It is therefore meant to be a kaleidoscope of the variety and diversity of India a vignette of its unity-in-diversity Who are the residents who pay for the educational facilities in Delhi assuredly superior to what most other cities afford Are they not — in their tens and thousands — people who have moved in from the four corners of the country and made Delhi their home A key value could be collaterally imperilled in pursuing this measure of good intent Parochial reservation in higher education could militate against the goal of promoting national integration The purposive movement of people across regional and linguistic boundaries as well as the intermingling and sharing of experiences that enable individuals to outgrow parochial mindsets are valuable in consolidating our sense of oneness as a nation This aspect is of particular significance to institutions which have as their core vision the goal of transcending differences and forging a sense of belonging together despite outward differences by living and learning together It is impossible to imagine for example a St Stephen’s College without its national clientele The richness of life the college embodies and imparts is derived to a large measure from its being a mini-India drawing its students from every state and Union Territory Delhi more than any other city cannot afford to embrace an insular outlook It belongs and must belong to the whole country That does not mean the cosmopolitan pan-Indian flavour of the city has to thrive at the expense of local aspirations The perceived tension between these two goals — welcoming outstation aspirants and empowering domestic ones — issues from the failure of governments especially in the last two decades to address the educational needs of the people of Delhi Also of the rest of the country It is good to remember that the people of Delhi pay not only regular taxes but also educational cess So do people all over the country Why is it that the thousands of crores of rupees accruing on account of educational cess remain a dead asset with the ministry of human resource development Why are they not turned into educational benefits for citizens in Delhi and the rest of the country The state has failed the people The idea of reservation helps so to speak to shrug off the blame for it It is as though Delhi-ites are facing some sort of “external threat” in the form of an educational invasion from beyond the city borders The idea of reserving seats for Delhi domiciles could even be counter-productive for the people of Delhi and for the Aam Aadmi Party By reserving a few thousand seats a measure of appeasement may be achieved This could however blunt the urgency to develop additional educational facilities commensurate with ever-increasing needs The moment the influx is capped the focus could shift somewhat plausibly to the desirability of merit-driven competition So long as only the locals are slugging it out the sense of grievance about failing to make it could be dulled It is the resentment of “food meant for one’s own children” being snatched away by more enterprising “aliens” that provokes the grievance As for the AAP given its ruddy national aspirations the “sons of the soil” advocacy in Delhi where it made its dream debut could prove a liability elsewhere It could take a heavier toll on its image as a robust pan-Indian alternative to the Congress and the BJP than may be realised right now That need not happen but it could well happen; especially if the AAP’s political adversaries choose to milk its potential for adverse propaganda It is not necessary that every student who passes Class 12 be admitted to a college It is beyond argument that the model of education followed today is not conducive to the empowerment of a vast segment of students Four or six years in the university system has the potential to cripple a young person’s ability to work An approach to education that is congenitally indifferent to the promotion of vocational skills and a robust work culture implanted in an economy with an abysmal track record of employment generation cannot be an unqualified blessing for everyone It is time we promoted in a well-planned and systematic fashion vocational education of a high order For this to succeed however we need to look at the livelihood aspects of vocational training If vocational training is only a strategy to filter out young men and women from mainstream education and consign them to life-long deprivation or under-privilege it is discriminatory and unjust Skills have to be valued and amply rewarded Skills are in daily need But they are becoming rarer and rarer All the while the chase of college seats gets hotter and hotter We live in a rapidly changing and already vastly changed India Regional divides have blurred Religious barriers are being regularly and wholesomely breached through inter-religious marriages The old parochial mindset is now quaintly outdated “Delhi-for-Delhi-ites” may ring popular in pockets of transient zeal But the idea sounds retrograde in the larger context Delhi like Gandhi’s India must keep its thousand windows open The fresh air that the AAP promises should not grow stale The nation’s capital should enhance not diminish its image as the Gangotri of education The author is the principal
