The Inclusive Education

India is a sovereign country. It is ruled under the constitutional principles of equality, liberty, fraternity and justice. The democratic tenet to individuality and individual dignity stands in the pivot of the entire system. The individual person when contradicted under the several institutions of human life, gets more value and regard. The institutions are for the people not the people are for the institutions. In the passage of time, since human race emanated on the face of earth, millions of institutions were framed and constituted, and later eradicated and obliviously forgotten. The fervor of democracy in 21st century nations is no hidden to anyone. It works on the principle of –of the people, by the people and for the people. This theory lucidly emphasizes the value of individuality. For the human society, every individual has the fundamental right to live honorably. Every individual must get the equal space and opportunity to grow. No individual must be the victim of discriminatory isolation. During the era of wars and battles, different social groups and ethnicities used fight either for prestige and power or for survival. In such a morbid and murderous situations, they required the high breeds and better built up people who were suitable for the war and battles. The weak, old and ailing people with infirmities were supposed to be the burden on royal exchequer. Such burdens were mercilessly cleared off by giving treacherous deaths. After the colonial and post war era, the democratic values and principles were championed, propheted and executed in worlds major societies. The foremost doctrine of democratic system is to deter and discourage all sorts of discriminations like color, caste, creed, language, gender, race and region which had engulfed the humanity into cavernous cavities from human society. The racialism by the Europeans towards Africans and Indians into white and black was the deadening reality some day, and to certain amount, that spirit of racial supremacy on high race ethnic base is still present. Many Indian scholars are killed by a group of hooligans only because he was Indian, he was black. Mahatma Gandhi was himself victim of racial discrimination while travelling to South Africa. Nelson Mandela fought years to liberate from the British rulers, to retaliate the curse , they have all felt through ages. Gender discrimination is another big question. The women were marginalized and deprived of human living. But with the advancement of constitutional democratic values have given a push to their condition. Today there are even piloting and progressing by big competitions and rivalries. Most despicable is that the persons, born with disabilities or unfortunate disability stay neglected and isolated to die in deep depression. The doubts and fear and lack of adjustment shatter the mental fabric and paralyze him forever. Deformity and disability is no bar in progress and pleasure of man. We have millions of success stories who had been magically and exceptionally talented despite being physically deformed and disable. Inclusive education is to include and involve the faces of every strata of society and all walks of life. The children of all hues and color must be the integral part of the academic arena. In the physical look and individual capacity, they all may look varied but that diversity becomes a power after uniting together. Just shape of the palms and fingers, they vary in size and strength but after they unite into a fist, they assume an enormous blow. Our body is itself, a unique example. Different parts of the bodies have different roles like ear hears, eyes see, nose smells and skin feels so are others, but after uniting together, they form wonderful creation. If we separate all of them, they even can’t function, but after getting united their strength gets multiplied. Same is the case of inclusive and exclusive education. Time to time, government have planned to provide better and healthier facilities to differently abled people. In the book of government record we can find the girls colleges, colleges for blinds, colleges for deaf and dumb and colleges for orthopedically challenged children. Though government provide system, budget and manpower handsomely with good spirit, yet it is quite unaware with consolidated and integrated future impact of it. Human nature is built and brought up on the impressions of surrounding and situations a person lives in. The books and institutions give us stores of information. They fill our mind with pieces of knowledge. They make us aware and updated with the happening around. They guarantee to provide us certificates and degrees. They provide us diplomas and qualifications. But the life skills and dexterity of living we learn by mingling into human behavior. We learn more by informal communications and less by formal communications. Our notions are shaped by interpersonal relations and interactions. Our behavior is molded by looking into the eyes, gestures and personalities of others. Unconsciously we learn a lot. The havoc of keeping all future citizens separately taught is the way to make more citizens of dissent and discordance. We are generating multiple groups fighting together with their innate instincts. We are rather creating chaotic and turbulent nation than a harmonious and symphonious one. We are on the way of making foreigners in our own country. The worst scene is that those hallmarked for some disabilities start developing a complex, negative and inferior. They start thinking that they don’t have equal strength and capability like normal people. They start feeling isolated, depressed and psychic. They even feel that they are the burden on the nation. They develop suicidal tendencies. The surveys and researches prove that each individual entity is unique in itself. Above all, no individual is perfect in itself. In place of segregation and isolation, we rather create beautiful bond with such special people. With all love and friendship with them, we can make a land of lovely people, with common nature and way of thinking. Above all we can provide the right of dignified living. We can instill confidence and courage in them by holding hand together. We should not let them feel aloof and lonely amid civilized society.


  1. Absolutely you are right Sir, we learn more by informal interactions rather than the formal one.
    The most important thing is that it also increases the chance of knowing each other's behavior.
