இந்தியாவிலும் கொரோனா வைரஸ் ஓரளவுக்கு வேகமாகப் பரவுவதுபோல் தெரிகிறது. சார்ஸ் வைரஸ் இதுபோல் பரவவில்லை. ஜப்பான், சவுத் கொரியா, தைவான் போன்ற நாடுகள் அளவுக்கு இந்தியாவில் பரவவிடாமல் தடுத்து நிறுத்த முடியவில்லை.
பரவினால் என்ன? உயிரிழப்பு ஒன்னும் அதிகம் இல்லையே? னு நினைத்துக் கொள்ளலாம்.
India active cases: 150,800
People died : 4200
US active cases: 1.8 million
US death: 98,650
அமெரிக்காவில் வாழ்க்கைத் தரம் பெட்டர், சுகாதாரம் நல்லா இருக்கும்னு கம்ஃபோர்ட் அதிகம்ன் என்னைப் போல் இங்கே வாழ வந்தவர்கள எல்லாம் பார்த்து கொரொனா வைரஸ் "யாரு சொன்னா?" னு சிரிக்கிது.
ஒரு சில அமெரிக்க வாழ் இந்தியர்கள் இந்த சூழலில் அமெரிக்காவுக்கு சப்போர்ட்டாக நியாயம் பேசுறாங்க. என்னைப் பொருத்தவரையில் இதெல்லாம் எங்களுக்குத் தேவைதான்னு தோனுது.
"இந்தியாவில் ஆயிரம் பிரச்சினைகள் இருக்கு, அங்கே இருந்து காந்திமாரி வாழ்ந்து சுடுபட்டு சாகாமல் இப்படி தப்பிச்சு அமெரிக்கா வந்த நாதாரிகளூக்கு இந்த நிலைமை தேவைதான். சாவுங்கடா!" னு அங்கே உள்ளவர்கள் நினைப்பதில் எந்தத் தவறும் இல்லைனுதான் எனக்குத் தோனுது.
அங்கே வாழ்றவங்க அமெரிக்க வாழ் இந்தியர்கள் பரிதாப நிலையைப் பார்த்து அழனும்னு எதிர்பார்ப்பதெல்லாம் ரொம்ப அதிகம்- என்னைப் பொருத்த வரையில்.
"Why dont you come to my apartment? I am getting bored here."
"OK, Honestly I am getting bored to death. I will be there right away, Caro"
"Come in. I missed you!" she gave him a hug.
"New relationship is exciting for a while, Caro!. Not for long" he spanked her ass gently.
"You are such a pessimist. I hate when you talk like this"
"You are correct. I am but I am realistic too"
"Whatever. I don't care"
"I am going to annoy you like this, Caro, so that you will find a better guy"
"Ha ha ha, May be it won't work with me"
"It is cultural difference."
"Because you are a white chick, huh?"
"Yeah! I am not an Indian. I think differently. So, whatever you are trying to annoy me, may not work with me"
"Can I ask you something?"
"You are going to ask even if I say that I am not interested"
"It is true. I am not a good listener."
"I think students need to listen. Professors don't need to"
"They listened enough when they were students. They may be tired of listening"
"I think American education system is so fucked up, Caro"
"They teach all the simple problems and solved examples in the classroom. They give all the challenging problems as home work or assignment. I wonder whether they can solve the problems themselves which they give to students"
"You think they cant solve any challenging problems?"
"I don't know. You think they really solve all the problems they give as home work? I don't think so. They have access for solution manual"
"What do you say?"
"It is not their problem anymore. So, students learn only some simple concepts from their teaching. The challenges are their own headache. They also get the exam questions from question bank. They dont set the questions based on what they teach in class room either"
"But the whole world thinks our education system is the best?"
"Here is how we set a question. What is chemical symbol for Gold?
"Yeah, multiple choice"
"Why are we having multiple choice questions for every fucking thing? Why cant you just ask, what is symbol for Gold? There is no need for multiple fucking choice."
"Why do they do that?"
" Because we dont want to evaluate the answers themselves spending our fucking time. We want "scantron" to do that part. So, we convert everything to multiple choice questions. It does not matter whether it is organic chemistry or genetics. They fuck up a lot when they convert organic chemistry to multiple choice questions. They dont care! They do it because it makes their life easy. It is all about fucking money"
" We can have 500 students in a organic chemistry class and collect millions of dollars as registration fees. How much we pay for a Professor? And how much fees we collect from 500 students? We dont intend to teach, Caro! We are using education to make money. Now the fucking Indians fucked up their system following American fucked up system. Because they always follow what America does"
"So, multiple choice questions are designed to make more money?"
"Of course. I realized this very recently. We think everything based on money. It is all about fucking money"
"You are becoming anti-American now?"
"No, I am just looking at ourselves and trying to understand what we really are"
"What's wrong with multiple choice questions?"
"I like asking, "What is the symbol for Argon?" and look for the answer "Ar". If the student answers AR instead, I want to correct him. I want to tell him/her a chemical symbol can be a single capital letter or a capital letter followed by small letter. It can never be two capital letters"
"The same thing a multiple choice question can teach too"
"I don't think so. We don't want to teach anything, Caro. We want to make money. We start educational institution to make money. Look, what is happening in India? following our system. All private Institutions are being run for making money. Because they always go after Americans' ass"
"I thought they hate America!"
"They do, but they follow every fucking thing Americans do. Today, Indian education Institutions are money-making machines. Do you know how much money fb, twitter and whatsup make from Indians?"
"It is not free"
"That's where the real trick is. It looks free. But fb, twitter and whatsup collect money from internet providers. These idiots pay them through their internet provider and phone providers. They are too stupid to realize that."
"They must be knowing"
"No, they dont know anything. They criticize America using fb and whatsup by paying money."
"Are they spending lot of time?"
"You wont believe it. Like oxygen, they can not live without these. They use at least 5 times more than you and I use"
"How do you know?"
"All my relatives are active all the time. I am not making up. It is true."
"It is amazing, the way we make money"
"We are the best in business!"
