பன்கர் ராய் - இன்னொரு மகாத்மா...

நாம் தினம்தினம் இந்த வீணாய்ப்போன அரசியல் தலைவர்களின் வாய்சவடால்களை கேட்டு கேட்டு மரத்துப்போன மூளைகளுடன் வாழ பழகிவிட்டோம். ஆனால் தான் பிறந்த இந்த தேசத்திற்கு சரியான வழிகாட்டவேண்டும் என நினைத்த ஒரு மனிதர் அதனை செயலிலும் காட்டியிருக்கிறார். சாதிப்பதற்கு எதுவும் தடையில்லை என சாதித்து காட்டியிருக்கும் இந்த மாமனிதரை போல நூறு பேர் இருந்தால் விவேகானந்தர் கண்ட கனவு நிச்சயம் நிறைவேறும்...

வீடியோவின் ஆங்கில உரை :
the complete script

So in 1965, I went to what was called the worst Bihar famine in India, and I saw starvation, death,people dying of hunger, for the first time. It changed my life. I came back home, told my mother, "I'd like to live and work in a village." Mother went into a coma. (Laughter) "What is this? The whole world is laid out for you, the best jobs are laid out for you,and you want to go and work in a village? I mean, is there something wrong with you?" I said, "No, I've got the best eduction. It made me think. And I wanted to give something back in my own way.""What do you want to do in a village? No job, no money, no security, no prospect." I said, "I want to live and dig wells for five years." "Dig wells for five years? You went to the most expensive school and college in India, and you want to dig wells for five years?" She didn't speak to me for a very long time,because she thought I'd let my family down.
But then, I was exposed to the most extraordinary knowledge and skills that very poor people have,which are never brought into the mainstream --which is never identified, respected, applied on a large scale. And I thought I'd start a Barefoot College -- college only for the poor. What the poor thought was important would be reflected in the college. I went to this village for the first time.Elders came to me and said, "Are you running from the police?" I said, "No." (Laughter) "You failed in your exam?" I said, "No." "You didn't get a government job?" I said, "No." "What are you doing here? Why are you here? The education system in India makes you look at Paris and New Delhi and Zurich; what are you doing in this village? Is there something wrong with you you're not telling us?" I said, "No, I want to actually start a college only for the poor. What the poor thought was important would be reflected in the college."
So the college works following the lifestyle and workstyle of Mahatma Gandhi. You eat on the floor, you sleep on the floor, you work on the floor. There are no contracts, no written contracts. You can stay with me for 20 years, go tomorrow. And no one can get more than $100 a month. You come for the money, you don't come to Barefoot College. You come for the work and the challenge, you'll come to the Barefoot College. That is where we want you to try and create the ideas. Whatever idea you have, come and try it. It doesn't matter if you fail. Battered, bruised, you start again. It's the only college where the teacher is the learner and the learner is the teacher. And it's the only college where we don't give a certificate. You are certified by the community you serve. You don't need a paper to hang on the wall to show that you are an engineer.
Every five years we have an election. Between six to 14 year-old children participate in a democratic process, and they elect a prime minister. The prime minister is 12 years old. She looks after 20 goats in the morning, but she's prime minister in the evening. She has a cabinet, a minister of education, a minister for energy, a minister for health. And they actually monitor and supervise150 schools for 7,000 children. She got the World's Children's Prize five years ago, and she went to Sweden. First time ever going out of her village.Never seen Sweden. Wasn't dazzled at all by what was happening. And the Queen of Sweden, who's there, turned to me and said, "Can you ask this child where she got her confidence from? She's only 12 years old, and she's not dazzled by anything." And the girl, who's on her left, turned to me and looked at the queen straight in the eye and said, "Please tell her I'm the prime minister."
