How do I write a letter to the education minister?

Answer: Dear Minister, I write this letter to you with much hope and expectation. I hope you will give me a patient hearing. Your position is one of both power and responsibility. Gen Z looks up to you as THE person who can get them out of this morass of mediocrity that education has become.

All of us here connected with education in some capacity or the other look to you for some positive change in the academic arena. I am at this point of time speaking strictly about school education. Sir, you have the opportunity to shape the destiny of the entire youth of our state. Education, as we all know is a concurrent subject and the many private players in the field are in reality sharing the state’s responsibility.

We are your partners in education. Kindly treat us as such. Government schools are usually built on state land and are run by the state while private schools are owned by private individuals or trusts and run totally without state finance or aid. We need to bear this in mind when forms and other data is being collected.

  • You cannot apply the same yardstick for the two sets of schools.
  • True, there should be accountability and rules to ensure smooth and effective functioning.
  • If rules are thoughtfully framed then implementation becomes easy.
  • Do reprimand the schools if they are guilty of misdemeanour.
  • Teachers, irrespective of whichever Board they may prepare students for, or whatever type of school they work in(private or government aided),are concerned about the future of their students.

They take pride in their pupils ‘achievements, and are not always concerned about their income. True income is important, but more than that it is the respect and dignity that is connected with being a GURU. Please give them back that dignity. We constantly hear of teachers in government schools not getting their salaries for several months.

How can people survive under such circumstances? They, then resort to giving private tuitions and some teachers may indulge in other malpractices. I am not condoning these acts but they need to survive. Teachers should be made responsible for academic functions and kept out of clerical duties. They should not be enlisted for Census duties, election duties and other such jobs that can be done by an unskilled person.

How does one handle a class of 30 or more students when the teacher is away on some duty or the other? When asked to do these sort of duties often and sometimes after school hours you are belittling their capability as knowledge facilitators and eating into their personal and family time.

  • This is even more important because the bulk of the teaching force comprises women; who, whether we accept it or not still continue to be the prime caregivers in their families.
  • This then paves the way for court cases filed by the private schools against these non-academic duties thrust on them.
  • This portrays the government in a poor light.

Teaching is an academic transaction and must involve intellectual and emotional elements. We must attract the best brains into this field. Unfortunately, things do not seem to be working that way. Why can we not have an Indian Education Service at the state and national levels? Let candidates appear for an examination, on the lines of the IAS/IFS and get selected to the post.

  • These examinations should be of two kinds— a paper test to measure their content knowledge and another that tests communication skills and methodology of teaching.
  • This will ensure that the right candidate is selected for the job.
  • I know it is easy for me to talk, and you face a lot of pressure from all quarters.

But Sir, we need to start somewhere if we must clean the Augean stables. Only that state whose youth are gainfully employed and whose brains are challenged to better themselves, can succeed. Young people have great ideas and a lot of energy. We need to make sure that they are kept occupied in creative pursuits.

  1. This can only be done by teachers who are motivated to challenge themselves every day.
  2. And again only such teachers are respected by the students.
  3. When handled by mediocre teachers the students have neither respect for the teacher nor do they develop interest in the subject.
  4. They go through the motion of coming to school but do not work.

This is a waste of national resource. Can you imagine a future filled with aimless youth who want to earn money, but possess no skill or know-how to take up a specific job. This leads to frustration and often causes them to go astray. There is so much more I can say but for a start I think this will suffice.

Who is known as the father of Bengal school?

Written by Prapti Mittal The Bengal School of Art emerged in 1950s Bengal, specifically Kolkata and Santiniketan as an  avant garde  movement, establishing itself along the lines of the Indian freedom struggle and all its basic elements like Swadeshi movement (self-sufficiency in production), non-cooperation with foreigners, self-governance, unity of all Indians against foreigners, among many others.

As a result, artists like Abanindranath Tagore, Benodebehari Mukherjee, Gaganendranath Tagore, Nandlal Bose, Asit Kumar Haldar, M.A.R Chughtai, Bireswar Sen, Debi Prasad Roychoudhury devised new methods of envisioning an independent India that would derive its strength from the rich cultural and historical heritage that it holds and from ideological and metaphysical traditions elsewhere in the world, not being restricted to the European understanding of modernity and progress.

Europeans like E.B. Havell who were sensitive to the cause also catalysed the growth of Bengal school of Art by providing them a base to function within the Calcutta school of Art. Nandlal Bose, Bapuji, 1930 Talking in terms of art theory, the paintings of Bengal school of art are characterized by a redefining of historical Indian art styles, especially the Rajput  and Mughal miniature art styles. Most artists of this group worked with watercolours, inspired to do so by the Far Eastern brush techniques and calligraphy. Education Minister Of West Bengal Abdur Rahman Chugtai, Gloomy Radhika, wash and tempera. National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi There was a very fine line between the Bengal School of Art and the Santiniketan School of Art. Kala Bhavan, the Arts school at Santiniketan established by Rabindranath Tagore in 1901, laid the basis of  modern art in India.

  1. The school taught music, art and performance art ‘for the coordinated study of the different cultures’ and eventually became the symbol of harmonious coexistence of western and eastern cultures.
  2. It was meant to serve as the center for exploration and research into the vast Indian cultural heritage, but one can see influences from all over the world in the member artists’ works.

The artists associated with Kala Bhavan were Rabindranath Tagore himself, along with Benode Behari Mukherjee, Abanindranath Tagore, D.P. Roy Choudhury, A.K. Haldar, Nandalal Bose, Kshitindranath Mazumdar and M.A.R. Chugtai. Thus we can see the overlapping and almost similar constitution of the two schools. Education Minister Of West Bengal Rabindranath Tagore, Animal Composite, 1931, coloured ink on paper One artist of particular importance is Jamini Roy, who did not fit into the descriptions of two schools because of his remarkably distinct artistic style, but who is nevertheless known for the nationalist ideology of glorifying our ancient cultures and traditions. Education Minister Of West Bengal Jamini Roy, Four Drummers, tempera on card, 16 x 11.5″ In this endeavor, Abanindranath Tagore was the first major exponent of Indian nationalist values in art. He was the founder of the Bengal school as well the “Indian Society of Oriental Art”. Despite studying the European academic style of painting, he became fascinated with the portrayal of Krishna in the Mughal miniature paintings.

  1. He studied Mughal miniatures, Whistler’s aestheticism, Japanese and Chinese calligraphy in his own art, thus making it more spiritual than the ‘materialistic’ art of the West.
  2. Around this time, there was a growth of the Theosophy movement in the West, a precursor to the Easternisation or Orientalisation that captivated the West in the twentieth century.

His allegorical representation of Bharat Mata (Mother India) is a testimony of both his nationalist alignment as well as the greater ideas of the ideal Bharat that Indians envisioned. The Tagore mansion, in which he grew up, served as a bridge between the white town and the black town (the racial divide in Anglo-Indian cities) and can be spotted in his stories, like Putur Boi, where the imaginary city resembles the colonial city of Kolkata. Education Minister Of West Bengal Abanindranath Tagore, Shahjadpur Landscape, 1927, water colour Gaganendranath Tagore was a key member of the Bengal school and the co-founder of Indian Society of Oriental Art. He extensively studied Japanese brush techniques and the influence of Far Eastern art to incorporate into his own work. Gaganendranath Tagore, Smoking Hoka, 1929, watercolour and ink on paper, 9.5 x 6.5″ Education Minister Of West Bengal Gaganendranath Tagore, Temple Cubistic, 1925, watercolour Asit Haldar is known best for the project of documenting cave art of Ajanta with the objective of bringing ancient Indian art to the wider public. His paintings include Yashoda-Krishna, Kunala and Ashoka, Awakening of Mother India and thirty two paintings of the Buddha, thus embracing idealism in his art. Asit Haldar, Young Krishna being fed by Yashoda, watercolor Nandlal Bose was influenced by the Tagore family and the murals of Ajanta and his classic works include paintings of scenes from Indian mythologies, women, and village life. To mark the 1930 occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s arrest for protesting the British tax on salt, Bose created a black on white linocut print of Gandhi walking with a staff. Education Minister Of West Bengal The original handwritten Fundamental Rights, Constitution of India by Nandalal Bose Nandlal Bose, Ardhanariawar, 1935 Thus, Bengal School of Art became the first cohesive nationalist art group, that did not follow fixed rules of art in matter or technique, rather each followed his own calling in order to gather inspiration from any source to build the modern Indian aesthetic.

What is the IAS salary?

UPSC IAS Officer Salary Structure, Allowances & Job Profile 2023 Topics Covered: IAS Officer Salary, Salary Structure (After 7th Pay Commission), IAS Salary in India, IAS Officer Allowances & Perks, Job Profile & Career Growth of an IAS Officer It is no secret that a job of an IAS officer is highly desirable among the youth of the nation.

  1. There are many factors that attract people to a career in the IAS.
  2. Apart from pride and prestige, the salary (along with allowances and other benefits) and the nature of work are some of the key factors.
  3. There is an age-old saying, also referenced in the Spiderman movies, “With great power, comes great responsibility”.

Well, this is certainly the case, but I’d like to further add to the saying that in the case of an IAS officer, “With great responsibility, comes a great salary package”. Now, an IAS officer does live a life of hard work and toil, but the Government takes great care to keep these able-bodied administrators of our nation, in the highest of their morale.

  1. It does so by providing them with not only handsome in-hand salary packages but also a host of allowances.
  2. With that said, it should also be mentioned that the salary and allowances of IAS officers increase with time, as they climb the administrative ladder to get promoted to the various high-ranking government posts.

However, it should be noted that the IAS officers are not paid so well just because they are IAS officers per se. Rather it’s because they are able to do things that very few from the Indian workforce will be capable of doing. So. without wasting any more of your time let us get to it.

  • In this section of the article, I have mentioned the topic of IAS officer salary in India in detail and also the salary structure/pay scale of IAS officers according to the 7th Pay Commission recommendation.
  • With that said let me get straight to the point.
  • The basic IAS salary per month in India starts from Rs.56,100 (excluding DA, TA, and HRA).

This value can go up to Rs, 2,50,000 per month which is the salary of the post of Cabinet Secretary of India. Talking about the Gross monthly salary of an IAS officer, it differs from state to state, district to district. That is because the gross IAS salary per month means includes things like the House rent allowances, and since the house rent allowances are different for different states, we cannot mention a standard Gross monthly salary for each of the IAS posts.

  • However, the gross monthly salary typically varies from Rs.56,000 to Rs.1,50,000 (approx.) depending on the different allowances.
  • Don’t worry if you are not aware of the topic of allowances.
  • I’ve written about it in detail in the section down below.
  • So, you won’t miss out on anything.
  • Before you proceed to detailed explanation of the salary structure, you can check the list of important which I have compiled as it will help you in covering the topics that are an essential part of UPSC syllabus.

Now let us take a look at the pay scale of IAS officers according to the 7th Pay Commission. Here I have mentioned in a tabulated form the salaries of IAS officers according to the various posts that they acquire according to the number of years of service that they put in. Education Minister Of West Bengal

Basic Pay (INR) Posts
State Secretariat District Administration Central Secretariat
56,100 Undersecretary Sub-Divisional Magistrate Assistant Secretary
67,700 Deputy Secretary Additional District Magistrate Undersecretary
78,800 Joint Secretary District Magistrate Deputy Secretary
1,18,500 Special Secretary-cum-Director District Magistrate Director
1,44,200 Secretary-cum-Commissioner Divisional Commissioner Joint Secretary
1,82,200 Principal Secretary Divisional Commissioner Additional Secretary
2,05,400 Additional Chief Secretary No Equivalent Rank No Equivalent Rank
2,25,000 Chief Secretary No Equivalent Rank Secretary
2,50,000 No Equivalent Rank No Equivalent Rank Cabinet Secretary of India

What is mentioned above in the table is the IAS salary in India excluding the various allowances that the government offers to these officers like House Rent Allowances, Dearness Allowances, Travel Allowances, Medical, etc. The reason these allowances don’t have a fixed value is that they differ according to the city of posting, and various other factors.

  1. Anyway, I have gathered some info about the topic of the “IAS Officer: Allowances and perks”.
  2. Let me share it with you.
  3. The allowances that an IAS officer gets form a major part of this gross monthly salary.
  4. Thus, it is important.
  5. To have an understanding of it.
  6. So let me clear it for you once and for all, allowances here are of multiple types – House Rent Allowance (HRA), Dearness Allowance (DA), Travel Allowance (TA), etc.

Meaning that the gross monthly salary or the total monthly salary of an IAS officer = Basic monthly pay + Allowances. Let’s get to know them one by one.
