When we discuss the topic ‘methodologies in teaching of Indian education’, it must have a larger area and it can be concluded partly in one or two days. It is a matter of discussion which starts from our ancestor’s methods of teaching & their self experienced & innovative techniques they used, till the date which understand the methodology as modern tools or supporting external aids only. Since our Vedic period we have a great experience of teaching methodologies. There were only two components in teaching – the giving and the receiving end. The sender/giver or the tutor had its own independence that he himself was the University. In the words of Dr. P. N. Prabhu, “Education in ancient India was free from any external control like that of the state and government or any party politics. It was the king’s duty to see that learned Pundits, pursued their studies and performed their duty of imparting knowledge without interference from any source what so ever.”
The Guru in the ancient times realized that the development of personality was the sole aim of education. The qualities of self-esteem, self confidence, self restraint and self respect were the personality traits that the educator tried to inculcate in his pupils through example. On the other hand when we compare the present aim and objectives of teaching, it has a great difference, yes theoretically it is vividly mentioned that the aim of education is to build a character, etc, etc., but in outcome what is happening in the society that we are very much familiar. In the present society the things like communal violence, murder, suicide, rape, corruption, divorce, drug addiction, unemployment, internal security threats, etc. are always on the rise. So who is responsible for this? Whether the curriculum or the method or the teacher or the taught or the environment, any one or two or all are responsible? This is a debatable question. But it is sure that the stakeholders of education are responsible, because it is always said that Education has its main role in character building.
So we hope our distinguished scholars may come to a conclusion and draw out a way which can be helpful for teachers and the pupils, within a limited time.
