PERUSING HONOURS IN PSYCHOLOGY,
CHRIST UNIVERSITY BANGALORE.
“The foundation for future prosperity is
build on the bedrock of a great school “
Viveka Foundations as the name suggests ; This school builds an underlying basis and principles of “SWAMI VIVEKANANDA” in each individual . “ The school with vision and a board of wisdom “ , The motto of this school aptly reflect the work of it . It strives toward excellence and knowledge . I have experience an immense difference in myself over the span of three years in this school . This school coerced me to push my limits . Honestly , from being a comfortable audience ; I saw myself being a confident participant . The opportunities provided to develop yourself in this school are enormous. The passionate principal Mrs. Kusum Rana and her hard working staff leave no stone unturned . They all are supportive , encouraging and understanding . This school pushes the students out of their comfort zones and persuade them to succeed in every sphere , be it studies or sports . Viveka Foundations has made me a complete different person . It helped me clear my vision for future and gave me wide and diverse perspective about life . This school helped me in ways my previous six schools could not . Today , I am proud to be a vivekian .
“Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten ”
Quoting the most prominent psychologist and behaviourist , I want you to draw your attention to the most happening and knowledgeable social institution; Education . When people think of education , they tend to think of facts and figures learned in school . As many educators might suggest, however, it is often the method, principles and inquiry process that lie behind knowledge that really matter. As B.F Skinner says, the sum of our knowledge goes far beyond simple textbook learning. While the information learnt in class might not be retained in long term memory after taking an exam, the critical thinking skills acquired while pursuing an education will last a lifetime.
Recalling my time in school, I remember the day when I had to choose a stream after 10th grade. My parents persuaded me to opt for non-medical and I was ready to take it. I knew I wanted to pursue civil services later, even an engineer or a doctor could become one. The ongoing parental pressure and society’s hierarchy on streams felt like a burden. I was convinced to finish my 11th and 12th as a non-medical student. Something within me did not settle, I grew anxious as day to choose a stream drew closer. Before the day of choosing, a carrier counselling was conducted by the Principal and school coordinators.it turned out humanities was an appropriate stream for my purpose. I put in all my force to convince my parents for my decision and they were supportive. The subjects were interesting. I always found the concept of behaviour and human mind interesting .I wanted to find answer for my behaviour and thinking I wanted to find answers for people’s behaviours and thinking. In this fast paced world with news of increasing number of suicides, depression and genocide; I wanted to find answers for these miseries.
I completed my 12th, planned on pursuing psychology as my major. I looked up for colleges best for psychology. I saw colleges of Delhi University, colleges of Pune, Mumbai, and then found Christ University, Bangalore. Christ University offered an opportunity to major in 3 subjects. I opted for psychology, sociology and English. In my interview for Christ university, they asked me “Why did you choose these subjects and How will they help you later? “ . The thought when I was choosing the subject for my 11th and 12th grade clicked me there. I replied , “ Psychology is the study of mind and behaviour . Sociology is the study of society . English is a medium of communication and analysing a concept . World is a collection of society and cultures ( sociology will help to understand them )and a society is a collection of individual , to understand an individual you need to understand psychology and to understand , analyse it well you need English . In this fast- paced world with news of increasing number of suicides , depression and genocide ; I want to find answers for these miseries and do every thing . I could to make it a better place .” So may be this landed me in Christ university Bangalore pursuing B.A triple major in psychology , sociology and English .
People frowned when I choose humanities as my stream and they frowned again . When I choose B.A over B.A (hons) ditching DU . I learned you can never please any one other than yourself. Yes , We are the product of society but we are not the puppets of it . Be courageous enough to sale through opposing winds and storm , you are stronger than you think . Enjoy what you do , learn and aspire . “Life is a process , not a state of being. it is a direction , not a destination . “
All the Best !!!
