English is not needed for the development

A guest post by: Abid Rafique

A friend of mine went to England; on his return, I went to see him. He was quite excited while describing his tour, “look what a country, everybody even the kids were talking in English, such a wonderful country”. Same is the condition of our rulers and policy makers, whenever they talk about the progress and development of America and England; they attribute it to English and think that English is the only key for the development of a country.

In the recent days queen of England addressed the parliament, her address was very well crafted and was delivered in an elegant way. The parliamentarians listened to her very keenly and it appeared that they understood and appreciated each and every word spoken by the queen. Was it because it was delivered in English? No, because it was delivered in their mother tongue, the mothers tongue of both queen as well as the parliamentarians.

And look at the height of foolishness, our president, our prime minister, our top officials start delivering their sermons in English without considering that it is neither their mother language nor their listeners. The result is a total lack of communication as both are handicapped whereas English is concerned.

Do they not know that communication is needed between the speaker and the listener and when both are using a foreign language; naturally both feel some problems whereas understanding is concerned. Another question, when we are having a language in which we can communicate better, why to use another language?

Why are we declining? It is because we have forced English into our educational and administrative matters, because it is not fulfilling the basic requirement of communication. 63 years have passed and this downward journey in the field of education, science and technology is continuing. And for the very same reason our universities, educational and technological institutions are not rated anywhere in the world. And because of this factor our students get shallow knowledge and when they go to the internationally reputed institutions they show an average or below average performance. And this is one of the reasons why our people are getting away from the books and they have abandoned the habit of reading.

And still another stupidity, we have given the English subject a compulsory status till our graduation. This has played a key role in keeping our literacy rate to a shameful low level. Nobody has ever thought that the failures in English subject only are far more than total failures in all other subjects. By doing this we close the doors of education to our millions of students every year, and the struggle for knowing English language hampers their performance in other subjects as well.

The efforts put by our elders in promoting English will not serve any purpose, but to fall our standards even lower. After all how can they fulfill their dream to change the language of 180 million people, it is simply stupidity, stupidity of the highest degree. And if their desire is to change the language of a portion of people, than it is like compromising on our dreams about this country. Why not involve 100% of the population in the process of development. And what will happen, if during this process of making the English, the language of our people, some other country (say china) becomes the boss of our bosses, will than we start learning that language?

We can make a 100 times more progress by putting in 100 times less resources and efforts by making Urdu as our official language and introducing it at all educational and administrative levels. Whereas books and other resources are concerned, you just implement Urdu as the sole medium of instruction and our ‘well wishers’ themselves will prepare, print and publish all the required books and journals. After all ‘they’ are dubbing all their movies in Urdu for our viewers, they have prepared the computer and mobile software in Urdu, and we see all the advertisements for their products in Urdu. They will never like to loose the market of 180 millions; after all they are much better in business matters as compared to our rulers. You will see that the deluxe and the low priced editions of their books will be freely available at our bookshops and other places of learning.

I know that all of our rulers have received their education from highly reputed English medium institutions and they are under their influence. They have their interests in their patron countries. All of their luxuries and enjoyments relate to these countries, but why are they not ready to think about the people of this country. For last 63 years they have exploited us a lot, and have kept us from going on the voyage of progress. Till when will they keep this Great Wall of English between us and the development?

EduReadings: How to Motivate Salesperson?

Motivation is the key component in getting the job done by employees. The more motivated are they, the more positive results are there. Here i am particularly going to discuss the case of Salespeople. They are very important to any organization, whether selling products or services. They are revenue generating units of the company so keep them motivated is necessary for productive results.

Salespersons are directly effected by all the strategies devised, polices made, planning constructed by the managers. Besides that some environmental factors and external factors also effect them. So Sales managers should realize this and make periodic adjustments to keep them motivated and focused on the tasks. So i am going to describe certain guidelines fo motivating the salespersons:

  • First of all those persons should be recruited for this job whose motives and objectives match the requirements of the job, his needs should be aligned with all the tasks and benefits of the job so he may be able to perform well and be motivated as this job will be fulfilling his objective as well.
  • Individual considerations should be taken into account when motivating and rewarding salespersons. Motivation is basically product of needs, if needs are being taken care of and fulfilled then a lot has been achieved, though all needs can not be fulfilled but taking care of it sometimes whenever possible, take care of their needs, as satisfied needs ignite the motivational behavior.
  • Salespersons should be provided with all the information regarding job so they can perform it very well.
  • Monotony of the works leads to boredom, hence lower performance. So the jobs and tasks should be redesigned, some additional feature should be kept on adding and some new tasks should be assigned, so it may keep the salesperson fresh and motivated.
  • Motivation can be increased by building salesperson's self esteem. This can be done by acknowledging good performances and giving some rewards.
So above mentioned guidelines can help you motivate your sales force and get your goals and their objective achieved simultaneously.

    1st Anniversary of Education Inn of Pakistan

    Its been a full year since I wrote this post and started Education Inn of Pakistan to contribute my little part to help my fellow students. My aim was to create an information portal where students can get all the information, reviews and updates regarding Educational Institutes in Pakistan. I created it with the view to be a source for all my fellows, to even answer the queries and to have a positive and sharing environment for community of students and learners. I know i have long way to go and my vision is getting broader with every time passing. In my 1 year journey I got Madiha's help in every aspect of this blog. She helped alot in EduReadings and made huge contributions in other sections as well. I am really thankful to her and I welcome others too come forward and help your fellow students.

    In the beginning, my major focus were detailed reviews of Educational Institutes. In the due course i added one more category that is of EduReadings. It is aimed to explain educational concepts of different subjects in comprehensive and elaborative way so students may get a clear concept of topics and theories. Continuing with these, around 3 months back I came up with new addition to my Blog that was of Notices. This head is all about updates and notices regarding exams, events, Educational Exhibitions etc. It is to provide my readers all the latest news which I can to my best. Now recently I have started a section under the name of Admissions, it will serve my readers with all the information related to Admissions at Universities & Colleges.

    With my these little efforts I try to update my readers and share my views and opinions. In future i am hoping to expand it in terms of more categories and information.I welcome all the suggestions and comments. Education Inn is here to provide information; spread knowledge and share perceptions.

    Many of my students readers asked me to start a new category related to the jobs for fresh students. So I was thinking to start a new series of posts in which I will share some openings in different organizations which are particularly for fresh graduates. I know that any of you can go to any jobs portal and find jobs opening in companies but those are mostly for experienced professionals so what I am gonna do is that I will search jobs for fresh graduates and share with you guys. That is not only, along with searching in different portals main source of my Jobs section will be my personal sources like I will use my personal contacts to find out jobs for you people. So by adding this new section of "Jobs for Students" I am taking a responsibility, a responsibility to give my fellow students those opportunities which might prove to be their career. So keep reading and be updated!!

    At last I need to thank my readers who always appreciated me by reading my writings and encouraged me to keep writing.

    EduReadings: Social Learning Theory

    This theory was developed by Albert Bandura and his associates. One of the theory's most important contributions to the science of learning was demonstrating that learning could occur without any overt behavior by the learner. That is, the learner did not have to do anything except observe what was going on around her. Social learning theory explains 4 components of human behavior to learn. Motivation, Attention, Retention and Behavioral Reproduction.

    Motivation:         This theory suggests that to learn something, a learner has to be motivated. Because without any motivation to learn anything new he or she will be unable to give his best efforts in the process of learning which will eventually make the learning process a failure. So motivation to learn is very important.

    Attention:        Second thing to be considered which is highly related with motivation is the attention of the learner towards the learning material. Because if the motivation is there he or she will give proper attention to what is presenting in front of him or her. Without the full attention no one can learn anything because of need to be fully attentive if you want to learn something new.

                          Few things can be done like turning off the cell phones or making the training room sound proof will help in keeping the learner's attention on the learning material.

    Retention:          Once attention is focused on an object or event, the incoming information is processed for possible retention. Some of the information will be retained and some will be lost. The more training is designed to facilitate retention process the more learning will occur. To increase the retention rate, method of symbolic coding could be used in learning process. In symbolic coding information is translated into symbols meaningful to the individual. By using symbolic coding we can increase the retention rate of learner.

    Behavioral Reproduction:          Behavioral reproduction is repeated practice. The more a person practices using new information, the more it is learned and retained. So it is like the learner is motivated to learn and give full attention and retain most of that and then you keep practice that new information again and again. This will make the learning process a big success.

      EduReadings: Tricomponent Attitude Model

      This theory that i am going to explain here basically tells about the components of attitudes. How attitudes are formed? and how these components are integrated to form an attitude. I'll discuss it here majorly in consumer's context. So let's have deep insight of it...

      In the under discussion model of attitude, three components of attitudes are identified by researchers n these are; Cognitive Component, Affective Component, Conative Component. Three three components are interrelated and integrate to form an attitude of a person toward any product or service in consumer scenario.
      Cognitive Component:
      Cognition is basically making decisions going through a thinking process. So this thinking process can occur on the basis of knowledge and perceptions that are already existing in our minds. So here i'll say that Cognitive Component of attitude is developing a belief based on past experience or perception and whenever we are exposed to attitude object (about which we are to form certain attitude) and our those belief will form our behavior towards that attitude object, and if its positive our attitude towards it will also be positive or vice versa, i.e.

      Suppose you are to make decision between where to lunch either McDonald's or KFC, now you will think and extract all the knowledge in your mind that may be due to past experience or gathered from different sources, you will be having certain beliefs on the basis of these knowledge bits and bytes and then your behavior will be led by these beliefs and your attitude would be led by you behavior.

      Affective Component:

      This Component of Attitude formation is all about emotional feelings of a consumer about the particular product or brand. People have certain emotions regarding the attitude objects either favorable or unfavorable; good or bad, it may be regardless of any quality, specification, features, utility or brand name. Like i may prefer KFC over McDonald's as KFC people are more into charitable social work. So my positive emotions would be with KFC.

      Sometimes emotionally charged states can also manifest this affect-laden experiences. For instance, if you are at best of your mood and you are asked to have an icecream, you response would most probably be positive, which would be opposite in other cases. So your mood at certain situation also counts.

      Conative Component:

      This final component is concerned with the likelihood or tendency that a specific action will be undertaken by an individual regarding attitude object. It is treated as an expression of consumer's intention to buy. It may include action itself. Consumers usually make purchases for positively evaluated brands. Their intentions towards those brands are positive, so their attitude towards those brand would be positive.

      So Tricomponent Attitude Model explains how attitudes are formed towards an object and what components are involved, i hope its all clear to you :)

      EduReadings: Virtual Personality

      Here i am going to describe an interesting topic, it is a simple thing but you might have never think of it side what i am going to tell you. It can be used positively to boost your personality. So here i start....

      As the term is self explanatory, that it is creating personality that actually does not exist. For instance; as internet usage has increased manifolds and chatting over internet is the most popular thing. So what some of us do is that we create our accounts with some different identities to interact with different people. So we will call it a virtual personality that exist only on internet.
      Now what happens that if you create a personality unlike you (or you may want to be like that), you pretend to be that person, if in real you are introvert you try to become extrovert over there, if you are not talkative you try to interact with people, if you are not confident you may consider that personality to be confident and like that. And there are chances that at the end of the day you have got these trait in your personality because of continuous practice, these traits become part of your personality.

      So Virtual personality provides your the opportunity to try out different personalities, which you are not and you may adopt a bits and bytes of that virtual personality in you which may groom you. It is just like going to the clothing store and trying out different outfits and then you may select the one that best suited you. Similarly you may adopt certain characteristics out your own created VPs and adopt the ones you may wanted to be.

      Notices: PHET Effecting Educational Activities

      The City Karachi is under threats of Cyclone strength Storm (Phet) and it has made a lot of activities of the city to be ceased. Electricity is out and people are suffering a lot. Educational institutes are not out of this stance as well. Students are suffering as exams are being canceled, postponed and institutes are closed, it seems like all educational activities are being shut down for sometime.

      So in this respect, Karachi University has also postponed its tomorrows papers. And all matriculation exams to be held tomorrow have also been canceled. All Exams of Special Children are also canceled keeping in view the current status of storm threat.

      Let's just pray that Allah Almighty keeps everyone safe and gets the city out of this danger. Ameen.

      EduReadings:Stimulus Generalization

      This concept is very much related to consumer learning. When we have needs which are unfulfilled, we are motivated by cues/stimulus around us. We are being bombarded with a lot of stimulus in our daily life as consumer which can be in form of ads, any outlet, products at grocery store, clothing stores etc. So sometimes what happens that we are unable to differentiate between stimuli as they are too similar to be differentiated, this is known as stimulus generalization.

      I'll tell you that how can you benefit this being a marketer and if you are consumer then i would only ask you to beware of "me too" products (those which exactly look like the established brand one). Marketers of me too products exploit this concept and consumers get mistaken and confused by the similarity in the original and me too brand. These are either packaged same, or presented in same way etc.
      For instance exmple of Biryani Expree and Biryani Extreme in Pakistani scenario, where biryani express was already established brand and people are well aware of its flex boards, menus, colors and out lets, and biryani xtreme by using everything almost similar to biryani express confuses the consumers and people are sometimes unable to differentiate.

      Well Marketers can incorporate this concept in inculcating learning in following ways:
      • Product Line Extension
      • Product Form Extension
      • Product Category Extension
      In Product Line Extension, a marketer with already established brand name can introduce new products in the same product line. For example; Rin dish washing bar, Rin lemon dish washing bar and Surf, Surf Excel, Surf Ecel Blue etc.
      Since these brands are already established and have positive image in consumer's min, a learning process has been occurred with positive reinforcement so consumer will automatically trust this new brand as well and be stimulated to purchase and learn about that. This way you can provide your customers some added features and variety and keep them loyal to you.

      In Product Form Extension, marketer introduces new and different forms of product For example; Crest tooth paste, Crest whitening strips, Crest Listerine and Dettol soap, Dettol handwash.

      In product Category Extension what marker do is that he/she tries to target a different market segment by introducing products in its line. For instance a designer who was only focusing on contemporary wearings for women may start designing for males as well, and then target kids market as well.

      These are the positive ways through which this concept can be utilized by marketers to benefit their customers.

      Chief Minister's Youth Commission

      It felt really good when I first saw a notice on my university notice board asking for students to apply to be a part of Chief Minister's Youth Commission. It means that youth i.e students are going to have their say in policy making. It is a very positive step our Chief Minister, Mian Shahbaz Sharif has taken. The prime purpose of this Commission is to involve youth; to have new, fresh and innovative ideas in Policy making to lead our country towards betterment.

      As per notification; 360 students would be selected from districts of Punjab to make a team of 10 in each district; comprising 5 male and 5 females students thus encouraging both and female.

      First youth conference will be held on 12th June where participants will interact with high officials of the Provinicial Government and Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.Notices and ads have been placed in almost every institute for students to participate, as the one i saw in my university. Students will go through written easy test assessment and those who will secure 60% would come under selection criteria who will then be selected by 8 member division level committee comprising an area MPA, a vice-chancellor, principal of any two postgraduate girls and boys colleges and a male and a female student from private sector.

      This is one of the things we need to bring change to our Country. So be a part of that change with all your enthusiasm and positive energies.
