Abstract

In the film, “Dead Poet's Society”, Robin Williams said that there are two kinds of professions: one that sustains life and the other that shows the beauty of life. Science, I believe, belongs to the former category and I would like to be a part of the latter. However I am a part of the former since I am now studying commerce! I decided to leave Science when I was sixteen years old. I am eighteen now, and had I to make the decision now, it would still be the same. In school, Science was like a buffet at a seven-star hotel. It all looks delicious but, when eaten, it turns out to be bland and tasteless. I would place the blame for this 'bad food' more on the cook than on the eater. Simply because, through this analogy, I want to express my opinion that science (in school) is not cooked well; it is thrown onto platters (books) and served to us - and we look at it with fascination, but when we study (eat) it, it is bland and tasteless.
