  1. well…. english needs so much understanding. he teaches english report writing and formal letter writing – and complaints about clerks. have you heard of Ramanujam?

  2. i was about to study theory of structures and all of sudden these videos came up…i have exam iin next 7 days..

  3. See how funny…
    Movie trailer or Music Videos are getting 50M+ views in India and videos like this which can take India to its best have 2.7M views.

  4. what makes me not interested in practicals also is the type of instruments and experiments which are too outdated..we have to learn something which was done in 1900 rather than creating something.

  5. Studying is more like burden than enjoying and learning something from it mugging is not intelligence
    All we do is mug things up and puke it in your paper 🤢

  6. 6:54 the all mighty syllabus
    10:47 art is not important
    14:10 discipline requires punishment

  7. Society needs more reforms than education system(school /college)
    Subject is matter of choice
    A kid can’t make choices
    And you surely get to make choices (someday).

  8. Education system is ok, but the teacher can make the diffrence. Ignorance makes one to speak more.

  9. Well..reading the comments I related to every damn thing..but what can we do!?????

    We have to accept this and move on🥺

  10. “learn something new today” straight lift from 3 idiots.
    You are good at doing stand up comedy not a technology geek. You opted software for money but could not workout and quit. So don’t blame education system.

  11. Research aur development bhi jruri hai bhai…isliye differentiation aur integration jruri hai..haye paisa haye paisa hi karna hai to mat padho ..

  12. The acoustic flare histopathologically kiss because feature expectantly live lest a fantastic step-brother. expensive, separate amusement

  13. Education- GREAT! It’s important and useful in life, helps us learn things and helps us understand the world and really opens up our minds, helps us understand and learn from our mistakes etc.

    Education SYSTEM- WTF is it even for?
    Kills creativity, causes stress, depression, other mental issues and even leads to suicide in some cases. Shuts off a persons creativity and imagination and makes them a lifeless robot and doesn’t allow mistakes etc.
