“Privilege labour over letters”: Kancha Ilaiah

Kozhikode: Thinker Kancha Ilaiah exhorted students of CREST to grasp the concept of dignity of labour, of those employed diverse valuable skills like farming, weaving, cobbling, herding, etc. He urged them to be proud of their ancestors whose skills enriched India, since “without mud there is no food,” and whose labour fed the ‘leisure’ class. He crticised our educational system, which privilges letters over labour and wanted lessons on the dignity of labour to be introduced in the curriculum from the 3rd standard. Had the significance of sweeping been recognised ‘Swachh Bharat’ would have been redundant. The lower castes should eagerly embrace English and shatter societal barriers
