    Beginning of English Education in India

    Beginning of English Education in India

    The British government emphasizes English as a medium of instruction in India as they wanted to praise the British conquerors and their regimes. However, the main reason for enforcing the British education system in India was to create a class of anglicized Indians. This was the cleverest way to de-route the future Indian generations from their culture and traditions. Also, Britishers wanted to create the dominance of western culture in the entire Indian subcontinent.

    High School: It Wasn't the Worst Experience of my Entire Life

    High School: It Wasn't the Worst Experience of my Entire Life

    A narrative often fed through pre-teen and teen media is that high school is one of the most damaging and scarring experiences that can happen to a person. I'm not here to totally disqualify that sentiment; for many people, high school is a very unpleasant and traumatising chapter in their lives and I am not writing this article to say those feelings are invalid. I am here to say, however, that high school for me (particularly in the last 2 years) was a time of great enjoyment. That's not to say it didn't take me a while to get there - trust me, I have many a story from my early high school years - but I recognise now how lucky and indebted I am to my high school for the education I recieved and the friends I was able to make. To get more of an understanding of how I got to this place though, we need to start at the very beginning: primary school.
