Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs unrest there, undigested all your life. We must have life-building, man making, character making and integration of ideas. As Swami Vivekananda has aptly said:
“We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet”.
Today we live in twenty first century. It is an age of inventions and innovations. So, what do you want from education system: to make you just a ‘LITERATE’ or an ‘EDUCATED’. The very word education is derived from the word “Educaire” which means “to bring up”. To bring up each and every stakeholder of the system in every aspect it may be economical, social as well as personal. In Sharad Pattern we are committed provide these things.
Education system should not just produce students only as human resource and make them ‘knowledge products’ and ‘services’. But it should aim on all round shaping up of one’s personality. In the present system a teacher’s concern should be on-not just imparting knowledge but also tapping the inherent talents of a student. Because every human being can be an engineer but not every engineer can be a great human being so we are committed to make student great human being who can lift up others by standing on his/her own feet.
We in Sharad pattern yearn the socio-economical development of all members of SIT family, first and foremost the parents who are actually determining factor of all, then students who are the asset for us, next its faculty from apex to nadir who are backbone of the system and finally the management the prime drive that motivates all of them to work, So we maintain this perfect square by working in unison.
Education should not be limited to books but it needs to be full of interaction, exposure and opportunities. In my opinion, co-curricular activities should be made an integral part of education for the overall development of the student. Besides books and the rat race, the students should be made to follow the moral values. Last but not the least the education should be transformed into a practical process where apart from the texts, there is a space for the students to create new ideas, activities should also be held like – project exhibitions where student can come up with their new ideas, imaginations and try to create something new, something more interesting…..they could try to implement it and move beyond the books. The need of the hour is not just an academic education but we need more practical and value based education .It should be like the words of Swami Vivekananda—” Man making education is what we want
And after all “The education which does not help the common mass of people to equip themselves for the struggle of life, which does not bring out strength of character, a spirit of philanthropy, and the courage of a lion – is it worth the name? Real education is that which enables one to stand on one’s own legs. Education must provide ‘life-building, man-making, character-making assimilation of ideas”. The ideal of this type of education would be to produce an integrated person. We are proud to say that we with the help of Sharad Pattern are actually implementing these things rigorously from its inception and we will take ceaseless endeavors to accomplish everything that has been promised by us. Besides this we will also be an Alma Mater i.e. Caring mother of all its family members.
