The thing that pained me was the reference to military education.*
I think that we have to wait a long time before a nation-wide
decision on the point is made. Otherwise, we are likely to become a
curse rather than a blessing to the world. Leaders are not made,
they are born. Should the State be in a hurry over this matter even
before full independence is established? Therefore, I am surprised
that the Central Advisory Board should be party to such a sweeping
recommendation as they have made.
CENTRAL ADVISORY BOARD'S RECOMMENDATIONS
"The Central Advisory Board of Education has endorsed the view of the
Working Committee of the National War Academy that residential
schools, where boys may obtain adequate facilities for developing
the character and powers of leadership, should be started by
Provinces and States to act as 'feeders' for the National War
"The Board is of opinion that the new type of schools contemplated in the Scheme of National Post-war Education will provide the necessary training for the leadership, character, intelligence, courage and physical fitness required by the military authorities for the Army, Navy and Air Force.
