Students from West Bengal

West Bengal is a state in the eastern region of India and is the nation's fourth-most populous. It is also the seventh-most populous sub-national entity in the world, with over 91 million inhabitants. West Bengal is a state which is located in eastern India. The state extends from Bay of Bengal in the south to the Himalayan mountain ranges in the north. The capital of the state of West Bengal is Kolkata and it is the biggest city of the state as well. In Bengali language, it is referred to as Paschim Bangal.

With a rich history and heritage on one hand, techno-savvy, upwardly mobile people on the other the state is a strange combination of old and new culture. It is often called as the Traveller's paradise and nature-lover's joy. The world famous Bengali culture, literature, local customs make West Bengal special. The Bengali culture is differentiated by its music, cinema and specially its literature

Statistically speaking, there is a reasonable amount of disparity in terms of the male literacy rate vis-à-vis that of female literacy rate. A sizeable amount of fund goes into elementary education. The compulsory education up to 14 years of age is a national step ahead towards literacy. However, the major concerns in the state which persist are absence rates of both, the teachers and the students, class inequality and dependence on tuitions. Tuitions, as remarked by global economist, Amartya Sen, does no good to the poor section, since affordability is a concern along with the fact that the endeavour of `providing education to all itself is hampered if tuitions come to benefit and not the initiative. Plus, tuitions and their effectiveness is a myth in India that needs to be curbed. Parents and students equally are responsible in providing a business to unwarranted coaching centers.

There are lot of Christian missionaries which have reached out to the poor. Very commendable work has been done by free schools run by them to provide education, shelter and food to the poor kids. Also, the 'elementary education for all' that had been included as a fundamental right under the 86th amendment to the constitution, once accomplished, should be expanded in the sense that free education should be provided up to the age of eighteen, or tenth standard.

Education system of colleges and universities is very irregular. The meritorious students are keenly interested for medical or engineering or other technical course. The medium standard students are crowding the colleges or universities for just some degree. But proper knowledge is missing in this system. They are deprived from huge knowledge.

So the education system in West Bengal must be made interesting. Syllabi have to be student friendly. Talented persons should accept the teaching as their profession. Then our country will progress in education like other state.

The system of the education has been vigorously deteriorating in West Bengal. Students wish to complete their higher education in other parts of the country as well as world.

All these are factors and reasons why students look for other opportunities outside the country for their better future.
