Daily Prompt: Back to the Future

Anachronism (noun): an error in chronology; a person or thing that’s chronologically out of place. Write a story in which a person or thing is out of place, or recount a time when you felt out of place.

Out of place? Lots of things are. The Indian education system for instance. It basically chains up the student and forces them to work in just the way the system wants them to. The innumerable number of classes that force us to confine ourselves to someone else’s understanding, instead of letting us go and explore for ourselves. In my graduation, for instance, we had about 48 hours of classes in a week, clearly leaving us no time for ourselves. In my present course, the institute thinks it is their right to suspend any trace of personal life we have for the $200 that we get per month. The education system belongs somewhere in the distant past, in the days of tyranny and the domination of few over the mass. No matter how modern and reasonable it claims to be, in the end it is nothing but slow poison to independent thinking. The herd instinct is hard-wired in products of the system.
