Technical education requirement of modern era

It was Macaulay’s idea to impart education to Indian boys and produce clerks, required for the government officers. In spite of the remarkable political awakening amongst Indians, the Indian universities have unfortunately continued to be very faithful to the original idea of Macaulay and they continue to pour out an every increasing supply of clerks even now. Fortunately we have come to realize that the academic, clerical or literary education given in our schools and collages is not the only kind of education. The evil is much deeper. Our universities not only produce clerks but also fill these clerks with contempt for any kind of manual or technical work. They proudly feel that those who have brains need not use their hands. As a result of this, Pakistani industry is starved and we find Pakistani markets flooded with all sorts of cheap foreign goods.

The remedy for this is to impress upon the minds of young boys and girls a love for manual work and secondly to give them the necessary training for it. They should be trained for doing all technical works as weaving, spinning, mechanical or civil engineering, agriculture etc. for this purpose, separate schools and collages should be opened, wherein after a little theoretical knowledge, students may have plenty of training in practical work and experiments.

The present age is an age of machines. Science has made rapid progress. The impossible of yesterday is made possible to-day. Under the circumstances, the cry of industrializing Pakistan deserves immediate attention. If Pakistan is to be turned into an industrial country, technical education is absolutely necessary.

If students are given technical education, they would get employment in any industry. Some may be employed in mills, some in any industry. Some may be employed in mills, some in firms and some in factories. Thus technical education would solve the problem of unemployment and save many unemployed young men from the mouth of death.
