CBSE Paper Leak Case Closed or is it.. RobinHood Writes. It has been 27 and 25 Years respectively since I gave my Class 10 and Class 12 Board Exams. Time has changed a lot since then. There were no cell phones then and neither was there 4 G or laptops and tablets in almost every urban household.
The one thing that has not changed is Human Greed. The greed for quick money, the greed for finding short cuts to hard work.
So there is this huge talk about a coaching centre and some teachers in a school conspiring to leak Class 10 and Class 12 CBSE papers. Let us also understand that there was a CBSE official who fell into the leak as well and has now been suspended.
But above all there was a need and greed in some students to by-pass hard work and look for a short cut. A product a service hits the market when there is a demand. The demand is created because schools are failing to deliver good education. That has given birth to coaching centres. And even after that the pressure is so much to get admissions in good colleges that some students don’t stop looking for short cuts.
If I am not wrong most engineering and medical colleges have a separate entrance exam for admissions from many many years now. What is the need of separate entrance exams in the first place? Because these institutions some funded by the government as well do not reply on the CBSE or other Regional Board results ! This i see as the first mark of shame in the whole process!
CBSE meanwhile sat like a duckling even when an anonymous whistle blower sent emails and fax days and in some cases hours in advance of the exam date in time. And to top it all there were vehement denials from CBSE for a few weeks about the same. Mr Javdekar, Minister for Education and also a parent lost his sleep over this as a parent, after precious time in course correction had passed and political ramifications of an inquiry, investigation may have been weighed carefully.
I wonder if there is any effort being made to computerise and digitize exams just like the Voting Process has almost been? But then the cases of EVM malfunctions and the trust that has been eroded not just once but many times over hardly seems inspiring.
I have been a student then and I am still one and probably always will be. Study well. Put in those hard working hours everyday instead of deciding to pile it all up at the end. Every person has a destiny and you will have to live it despite the odds. And remember If you Give the World Red, the World Will give you back Red. If you Give the World Green, You will for sure Get back Green.
