The interesting story of our educational system | Adhitya Iyer | TEDxCRCE

रोजी प्रकाशित केले 17 ऑगस्ट, 2016
A story surrounding more than a million students in India built around a booming IT industry, a machine like education system, a race to a seat amongst the top engineering colleges and student suicides in our system. The Indian education system in all its complexity has turned out to be one of the most fascinating educational stories in the world. Watch Adhitya Iyer in his talk share his travel around the country discovering the truth behind the common engineer in India.
Adhitya Iyer completed his engineering degree from Mumbai University, where he studied in an institute interestingly named after Sardar Patel and was inaugurated by Nehru. He was listed as one of India's Top 30 student entrepreneurs by the NEN. He later spent 2 years in Bangalore selling chai, before he set out to write a non-fiction on the complex life of India's engineers is Kickstarter funded and is India's highest crowdfunded book. He thinks the society needs to be re-imagined and that humans can't be spending more than half their life doing something they seldom enjoy.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

  • The situation is so pathetic that you cannot find institutes which teach any other courses other than PCM and PCB..

  • Agree 👍 with you... this country is so obsessed with engineering that people just lost their minds..I have not seen a single parent thinking the way you or I or a stressed student think..while the educational institutions are cashing the situation, India, in this process, is losing a lot ( like the Olympic medals and Noble prizes) which no one is acknowledging... Sick of this country 😒

  • His 4th mistake was to came to this talk ....... talking alone infront of mindless dead bodies!!!!

  • From thumbnail I thought he is Shwetabh Gangwar 😂😂

  • "In India you will always become an Engineer first, and then decide what to do with your life"

  • He probably visited Hyderabad Chaitanya or Narayana 😂😂

  • Preety much the same in the CA program.

  • Why did MRslow recommend this to me...while preparing for jee..😭😭😭

  • 'Our education system wants us to study for marks, not knowledge...' -Me, just now

  • Those 2.3 k dislikes are education system members

  • The better aunt affectively listen because carrot genetically laugh along a wide-eyed direction. axiomatic, lively seeder

  • Indian parents and schools : I'm gonna pretend I didn't see this

  • 10:08 daaaaamnnnn Nobody laughed at this joke? The audience surely is dead.

  • Who else saw arjun kapoor in the thumbnail.?

  • Moral of story, " CREATIVITY IS CRIME. "

  • God bless you! You are awesome!

  • I noticed u are particularly good at social studies! 😃 Really appreciate it!

  • Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

  • Bruh not gonna lie but some kids here are thinking differently which is *wrong* . I completely agree to your statement that we should choose career of our own choice cuz I also wanted to become a chef but sadly I'm preparing for NEET rn. But some kids here are misunderstanding your ted talk to talking about not studying. This is a completely *WRONG* interpretation of message you gave. Kids hate studies (proven fact) but school study at least until 10th class, is extremely important for brain development (speaking biologically). It's quite understandable if you want to become something which doesn't require studies at all (like some kind of sportsman) but believe me, at least pass your 10th and 12th. If suppose you don't succeed your dream, you can at least apply as a clerk (where thousands of engineers already apply) and earn to fill your stomach (if you get the job). Staying uneducated and unemployed in future will bring you no good because already there are crores of people in India who are EDUCATED and unemployed.

  • Me after watching this video: Indian education system sucks.... Also me 0.5 sec later: But all I can do is study!

  • "The first mistake of my life was that I was good at studies" I felt that

  • India 1980: Person 1: Where can I find an engineer? Person 2: There, can you see that bunglow near that bridge? That belongs to an engineer. India 2010: Person 1: Where can I find an engineer? Person 2: There, can you see that colony near that bridge? All residents of that colony are engineers. India 2030: Person 1: Where can I find an engineer? Person 2: There, can you see that bridge? All the homeless persons sleeping under it are engineers.

  • My first nd last mistake was same as like be a good study at students life

  • yoyo saudi gang

  • I have read his book

  • Dead

  • I am from kanpur man

  • There is no equality in india ,

  • Everyone listens agrees but ..... back to normal .Well that's the con of Indian system maybe!!!

  • We told our parents that we don't want to take science ,they even agree with our decision of not taking science. But after we got our results we both score quite well. Even my sister score more than expected and this our made our to let us take science and now we both are suffering. The worst thing was we are not prepared for this situation and yet we are in it.

  • 1:54 Same to me bro

  • just hoping that some day something will happen good to us too ... this hope came from --- there are already many people out there gone from same education system who are now successful so why not me.

  • The same thing is happening in Pakistan, the reason is the same. I think it's time to change the way our schools work.

  • The audience are old people. They barely can understand what you are conveying 😂

  • The poor doggie had to suffer and watch dis XD.

  • Yang milih allah like yg Mili dajal hirawkan 1:39.........m.

  • INDIA NEEDS GUYS LIKE YOU

  • We know even after 4 years of this video Whitehatjunior like companies do the same error, they sell it.

  • 4 year of this video and still everything seems exactly how he depicted. And that is irony of our school system

  • Some times I think India needs a dictator

  • Phir bhi koi changes ni aane wala bhai... Isliye padhai karo... Ni to marks ni aaynge aur marks ni aaynge to naukri kaise milegi aur nakri ni milegi to koi papa apni pari ni dega.... Ye sab door h abhi ni padhoge to mummy ni maregi... (ye ek kaalpnik ghatna h)

  • 1. Kriti sanon 2. Nitish Kumar 3. Raghuram rajan 4. Ravichandran ashwin

  • Overpopulation is the worst problem of India

  • The one with the power to change education system is in the hand who doesn't know acknowledge the problem. The reason no one applauding or laughing at his jokes is that audience is boomer.

  • Ya Allah ampunilah dosa kami semua yang setuju like.

  • India's education system simply isn't good for the country. It's quite saddening actually. If India has to become an innovative, technologically advanced, wealthy and healthier nation, it has to start with changing the education system. Without generations of highly skilled, passionate and inspired people, it's hard for any nation to move forward. The education system and basic approach to teaching at both the school and university level in India need a serious revamp.

  • Turn one auto generated caption and play at 2:44

  • hey whos that actress?

  • I have ignored this video before I joined engineering , now I regret my btech decision . I'm frustrated . I joined CSE engineering in a third tier college paying huge amounts of money although I knew that I had 0 interest in comp and tech thinking that I would manage it but , I think I'm failing but still don't wanna disappoint my parents . Indians have this hive mind thinking about engineering and it should stop . And companies like white hat junior etc should just stop pushing this mentality more .

  • You become engineer first, then decide what you wanna do in life... Man that hit hard

  • The stereotyped file quickly delight because bag ultrascructurally spill midst a bite-sized screen. stimulating, languid rabbit

  • Thank god I am bad in maths 🤣🤣

  • Lol you can literally see the manifestation of what he says in the audience, Boring,Doctrined,Uninspiring.

  • Really poor audience, if I were there I would have clapped really hard for that man. Hatsoff sir...

  • Then what is the way out? any inputs?

  • get outta here dude , u would be depressed and demotivated like never before

  • this is so depressing

  • Ye budho'n ko Kuch samajh Nahi aa rha hai. 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • It's very Unfortunate but true ....Can't express myself

  • He didn't get much claps as the poeple who r sitiing infront of him did kill the dreams of there child

  • He is that Aditya in roadies.

  • So the disease is known to all but what's the cure???

  • amazing
