A brilliant article. Without the grace of art the future seems to be bleak. Be it mathematics or history, literature or geography–art is everywhere. Because art is essentially a sensitivity, a way of doing things with beauty, harmony, rhythm and grace. If in the name of ‘success’, ‘utility’ and ‘information’ we miss it, our schools and colleges would be transformed into mere ‘learning machines’ with the logic of industry–‘input’ and ‘output’, ‘investment’ and ‘marketable product’. Keep publishing good articles. Because there is hardly a forum that generates good ideas in the real of education.
