Random Thoughts - Education System

Many of us have to make up our mind about the field we are going to chose for the rest of our lives after 10 years of schooling. I believe some (if not  most) of us are confused or lack the passion for any particular field at that age. Nevertheless, we are forced to focus on certain fields even though it may include few topics which are there for students to choose more than one field. Also, once you complete two years of PUC (+2), you choose a field based on your marks. This sort of creates an academic class system.

Instead we need to have a 'Chaos University' where every subject under the sun are taught. So, you have engineering topics sharing space with law and history, pure sciences with arts and vocational courses and so on. Students are allowed to take credit courses in any random order until the day they decide whether they want to become a linguist, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer or doctor. Maybe, mastering one or two (depending on number of  years of their stay) vocational courses might be made obligatory. A student can stay a maximum of 10 years in the university. Basically, I'm trying to realize MOOC in real world.

I think one can join the university immediately after their 10th. I don't see why there should be additional two years in this system.

Random Thoughts - Scientific temperament

The following experiments could be a total waste for any practical purposes but to improve the scientific temperament in our country are totally necessary.

1. Getting a job with or without praying 
 - Praying group along with preparing and appearing for the job interviews went to religious places regularly and made vows if they landed one
 - Control group only prepared and appeared for the job interviews

2. Having a child with or without praying
 - Praying group along with trying different fertility measures went to religious places regularly and made vows if they had one
 - Control group only tried different fertility measures
