3 IDIOTS – The Message We Never Received.

A must read

Every Ghanaian who has watched this movie (‘3 idiots’) will definitely smile and admit that this is an awesome movie when he or she hears the name.

There is no doubt that this movie has a moving and fantastic story and one that will have a significant impact on you anytime you watch it.

I watched this movie for the third time with a friend, I learned something I have never realized.

Rancho is the lead character and constantly has problems with the educational system, something he believes produces only Machines.

There is, however, one actor who loves the system; Chauver! He is the exact opposite of Rancho. Chauver is great at memorizing long definitions and long essays without bothering to know the meaning not to talk of how to apply them. Being Engineering student meant that he could only pass exams but not fixing generators nor producing touch lights. Does that ring a bell?

My friend asked me a question, do you know this movie has a message for Africans?
Of course I didn’t know that and my response was swift. He smiled and asked, where did Chauver say he comes from? I quickly responded Uganda and it became clear what he meant.

How accurate the producers were in using someone from Africa (not necessarily from Africa but in the movie he is) to play such role! It was perfect; Chauver represents the educational system in Africa where we heavily rely on bookish definitions but can hardly apply a thing. We are encouraged to memorise and produce during exams and we are certain to receive awards for that. Those who cannot learn by rote are left frustrated like Joy(the student who committed suicide), the system doesn’t allow you any breathing space.

Chauver represents you and I; constantly hoofing and puffing to become first in our class rather than enjoying what we are being taught.

We do not care whether we understand or not once we pass our exams we are the heroes.
That is our Africa, that is what Chauver represents.

Until we learn to be like Rancho we will never be our bosses but screaming and shouting out our peasant achievements.

I really have to go because the educational system will not allow us to do other things but I promise I will not stop writing. You should not stop doing what you love to do.

Like Rancho, I will live every moment to the fullest. I am certainly not dreaming to be like Chauver, it should not be your dream too.

Chauver is Africa, Africa is Chauver but Africa must be Rancho. ‘3 Idiots’ sent us a message about the flaws in our educational system. We may not have realized but it certainly gives us some solutions we can use to build Africa. Africa must be Rancho.

I am an African.
