YET ANOTHER ENGAGEMENT!
India has still a long way to go before a relevant lecture, which can provide a roadmap to better existence has to fight with the mindset of yet another engagement. It also has to fight yet another mindset of a weekend, where anything distantly pertaining to relevant knowledge in abhorring, even if you are not able to get it again, ever in life. The engagement with knowledge has to be redefined in this country. The present mindset cannot take us places, the biggest stumbling block in our ride towards a Knowledge Society.
Disrupt or Be Disrupted starts from here, the mindset of the Disruptor cannot be so antithetical to knowledge. The limited dose of knowledge so meticulously calibrated for a degree or a job can fetch a salary for the present day, but leave aside not taking you places, it might just be would up before your have realised. We have the ideal mindset and the DNA of getting disrupted and we have facing the same brutal experience over and over again. What a tragedy for a individual, society and the nation.
The ”Yet Another Engagement Mindset” gets reflected in varied ways. If one has attended a lecture with the same name or the same person, there is no need of attending it again and there is no urge to find out as to what it is. Leaving aside the textbooks and textbookish professional capsules, one is not even aware of the fact as what the knowledge requirements are. Educational, research institutions and enterprises are afflicted by this disease, the ticking checklists is sine qua non of education.
How have we plummeted to this abysmal situation? Education and knowledge became a spare time issue, with no stress and strain. The new found educational infrastructure gave a easy way out. Comfort hit the campuses with extra money to splurge. Instead of parents doing the parenting, they also fell in the same trap. Social media added to the fun of being social, holidaying and becoming a vital part of the 24/7 tv channel of our lives. Disrupt or Be Disrupted, A Billionaire Story has cleared the same battle.
DISRUPT OR BE DISRUPTED, A BILLIONAIRE STORY, IS THE INITIATION OF A DISRUPTION IN KNOWLEDGE.
