Wow, we may actually have some philosophers working at state govt’s animal husbandry & fisheries dept!! Poor animal/fish!!
Unfortunately, the purpose of education (at least in majority of institutions, students) is just securing a job. Let us not blame it on colonial hang-over…

Over the last one week, I had opportunity to listen to two exceptional speakers… both spoke of Indigo children. Perhaps, when they grow up, we will have more genuine philosophers.

As for the purpose of education, it is surely ‘Character’, at a holistic level. There are educational institutions working on such ideals too.

Thanks Anurag, for raising these questions. IF more people like yourselves seek philosophers, the candidates & their institutions will catch up…
