3 idiots

Watched an awesome hindi film yesterday, "3 idiots", starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and a few others. And i had to say, this film is genuine, touching, and meaningful.


The movie started with three youngsters from different family backgrounds getting into a top engineering university. Here it showed us how the current learning and education system is. Rigid and conventional memorisation, definitions, and direct answers without critical thinking. And when someone answers the question from a different perspective, or a more simpler approach, they will be declined, as older lecturers only accept answers based on books. How many of us have encountered this? I could tell you, personally, i have. And it was just recently, in university, of master level. A lecturer of mine gave us a test that literally consists of questions asking you to spit out every single words from his notes into the test, incredible eh....and this is in university level. 6 essays, in 1 hr 30 min, amazing! Yes i know, it is important for us to know, but what do we know beside these facts, what is the implications behind these? You are not testing our knowledge on that field, you are testing our memorization skills, and with laptops and high-end mobile phones nowadays, it is still of that utmost importance? 

This movie also highlighted alot of moral values. And one of the most important one that ran through the whole film is respect. First, is the respect of choices we made. Choices are suppose to be made by ourselves, as we are the one who will follow this path once the choice is made, parents, teachers and friends are there to give us advice, but once you yourself is the ultimate decision maker. Second, is the respect for knowledge. Knowledge can comes from anywhere, anyone. What makes a university professor a thousand times superior than the cleaner outside? Should there be class difference? treat everyone equally, don't misuse the privileged power rested upon you, if you are a professor, you gain people's respect, but don't misuse it and become arrogant, making decisions based on personal favors rather than true contributions. 

Be humble, there is always something for us to learn from everyone that we have came across. Learn punctuality from the bus driver, love from the nurses, loyalty from your fellow friends, sacrifice and hardworking from the rubbish collectors, friendliness from the canteen lady who always put up a smile, dedication from your supervisor who is willing to spent his lunch time to see you, and many more. 


This movie is really useful for all of us as we will be educators one day. You might turned out to be a teacher, a lecturer, a supervisor, a mentor, a trainer, and if none of these fits you in, surely one day you will be a parent for you kids. So, educate them well, let their imaginations run freely and most of all, tell them, do what they love to, so that their future profession, is also their passion. Then, you have carved in them an invisible map, that they would eventually reached their destination, without going astray. 

"give me some sunshine, give me some rain, give me another chance, wana grow up once again" - from a song from the movie
