Go to the root of the problem!

Go to the root of the problem!

Conversation between Sriram and Natarajan Amirapu

Sriram:

jairam ramesh commented that IITs, IIMs are good only because of students not because of lecturers. He said IIT and IIM students are world class but not lecturers. No real research is being done in these institutes. He also rightly said that a governmental research organization never attracts young talent which is totally true. I also experienced the quality of professors there. Most of them teach outdated content (content of 1950s) which is no where used in industry.

Now a days UPSC is also posing a question to candidates with IIT background in civil services interviews “Whether IITs are good for conducting JEE only or research”.

Natarajan Amirapu:


I read the news yesterday and also the comments accompanying the report in Economic times. Yes, he was right to an extent. But, where is the problem? If we want to help, we have to go to the root.
