"3 idiots" – A real life case study


The movie ‘3 idiots’ is totally focused on the current educational system and its drawbacks. It has covered the situation of all the participants practically involved in the educational system in India, that is, students, colleges, faculties and parents. So this movie is a lesson for all the above parts, which I have analyzed after watching this movie.

Basically, this movie covers the pressure higher education students face due to high expectations from their parents, universities, and colleges. One of the important topics covered in this movie is student suicide due to pressure and failure to meet expectations. As these types of incidents are not good for society, the country and families.

India is a young country and young people set trends in any nation. It is an issue that concerns us all and we must take this issue seriously. These types of incidents also affect us directly or indirectly since we are all part of this system. Therefore, we need to think and bring some dynamic and revolutionary changes in the educational system of the country. This movie strikes me as a real life case study of the Indian higher education system.

The film clarifies the drawbacks of the current educational system. As it clearly shows, how higher education students are forced to perform better on their exams to achieve good grades, which will give them a highly paid job in most companies around the world. Under the current system, we teach our young people that life is a race and to be successful you have to run faster and leave others behind. In this race they begin to use shortcuts and other means to achieve success just like the character “CHATUR” in the movie.

In this career, everyone in the system overlooks or skips the importance of knowledge and its practical usability in life and work. The gist of this film is that instead of lagging behind titles and grades, we should focus on acquiring knowledge and developing skills through knowledge. This will develop excellence in students and make them eligible to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently.

The movie ‘3 Idiots’ also teaches us some lessons that I have classified into the following categories

1. Lesson for students

2. Lesson for parents

3. Lesson for teachers

4. Lesson for universities

1. Lesson for students

For. Students must believe in knowledge, as knowledge will develop excellence in them, further leading to success.

B. They must understand the fact that there are no shortcuts to success. The only way to success is hard work and knowledge.

D. When choosing your career, instead of running after money and glamor, choose the career that interests you the most and the one that you are most passionate about.

me. Always share your thoughts and interests with your parents and try to convince them positively. Do not pressure them by doing negative activities if they are not convinced.

F. Study to gain knowledge, not just to get a degree. If you will study for a degree, you will not get knowledge, but if you will study for knowledge, you will also get a degree.

gram. Suicide is not the solution to any problem, but it is running away from the problem.

me. Instead of forcing students, motivate them to do things by showing them its benefits.

4. Lesson for universities

For. Universities need to develop an environment that provides knowledge to students.

B. They also need to create healthy competition among students for knowledge.

vs. The general focus of academic activities in a university should be the development of the creativity and capacity of its students.
