Democratize Education to Groom Competence to Compete
Among Unprivileged Children with a sense of
Personal Social Responsibility (PSR)

Personal Social Responsibility (PSR)

In philanthropy driving force is affluence and affordability. While, a sense of Personal Social Responsibility (PSR) is a proactive action, driven by a realization that position of every individual is in a pyramid like structure. And each pyramid is a subset of larger pyramid comprising the society. There are people at levels below the one occupied by a person and it comprises of those who could not grow a comparable competence, while there are also people above him in the pyramid.

Every layer below the other in the pyramid bears the burden of all the upper layers. This argument is as much valid structurally and as it is true in the role of individuals in the social pyramid. The sense of PSR grew stronger as we interacted with the people operating Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and institutions deriving resources under CSR or various tax exemptions available under the law. We are inclined to raise some questions such donors as to -1. what is flaw they find in models like that of ours? 2.is it lack of competence? 3.Or lack of organization? 4.Or lack of passion? 5.Or lack of dedication? 6.If not, is it wrong to groom competence to compete? or, 7.is it wrong to democratize education where every child or adult has equal and open opportunity to receive quality education? 8.Should education be a bounty for children of elite and affluent families? 9. Is it not that every child born with a right to carve his fortune? 10.Can this right be exercised naturally to test one’s competence to grow in  commercial environment where cost of learning is absolute and rationalized on the scale of one's economic affordability?

An argument that every individual is born with different inherent capabilities and, therefore, needs different set of environment, training to grow with talent or skill inherent to him. But, who is to decide discrimination of children, at what stage and in what manner? Are there not some basic skill set which every individual needs so as to differentiate between right or wrong, differentiate between human and inhuman, knowledge or ignorance? Elite and affluent people if get sensitized to the PSR and choose to pro-act, there would be fewer people among unprivileged class, ready to take on their fortune as it is. GOD forbid if they become victim of ill education, the result would more Kans, Ravana, and many more mythological devils, and in recorded history Hitler, Bin-Laden, ....(add more names of tyrant rulers, persons) Killers of  great persons like Socrates and Judges of Galileo and many more..

JpegEvery elite and affluent person has surplus resource and time. Real problem in reaching out beyond oneself is not of affordability but of self-centric approach; thankless task of correcting course of education to quality and value base is so large that none can do it individually, rather it has to be assumed as collective responsibility. If this is realized and pro-acted by elite, it would be possible to avert recurrence of Mahabharat, crucification of Christ, Poisoning of Socrates, imprisonment of Galelio and in modern era, inhuman atrocities attacks at US, Delhi, Paris, Pakistan, and many more causing frequent recurrence of such evil acts.

It is generally seen that elite and affluent people argue that their first priority is profession; it gives them earning to live and support their family. Second is family; it gives them comfort to put in their best at profession. Third is the self, who is at the core of the family. Last comes society and social obligations. But, what is role of society in ones making and being? Can a manufacturer produce if there is no buyer? Would a mother enjoy cooking if family relishes eating outside or is left with no appetite? Would a doctor run a clinic if there are no patients? Each of such affluents needs to introspect who are subjects of being what they are. Answer would lie in the spirit of a real and passionate teacher who motivates learning to those who cannot afford it.cam00679

Quote of Chankya on ‘Failure of Selfless charity’ is debatable. In recent COP21 on Climate Change concluded at Paris on 12th Dec’15 Dec’15 had resolved the conviction of solidarity by developed nation as to the most vulnerable ones. This is the spirit of PSR and has to be assumed proactively by elite and affluent ones towards unprivileged or under-privileged ones. It would radiate fragrance like sandal wood and build harmony and not vengeance, mutual respect and not hatred, safety and security but not crime. A society to live with is the ultimate aim of all, then where is the hitch. Take charge, move ahead, not individually but collectively. There is no competition in this field. Think, plan and do what best can be done.
