rya11111 posted a topic in GRE Analysis of an IssueTopic: "As we acquire more knowledge, things do not become more comprehensible, but more complex and mysterious." ESSAY: The statement here linking complexity to knowledge playson the experimentation of humans with the strangeness of nature from thefarthest past as we know it. Since ancient times man has been curious about thenature around him. From the invention of wheel till the modern day nuclear weapons,man has been moving forward in the field of science. It is true that when one question isanswered, it gives rise to a number of other questions and so it can be saidthat the field of science is becoming further complex as time passes, but ifone has the true knowledge of the subject, the science becomes simpler. Even inthe midst of complexity, it will be wrong in our part to tell that it becomesincomprehensible. Considering the field of medicine, in olden days,there were no proper doctors. People relied on so called “witch doctors” tocure them of the disease, which rarely happened. The medicine to which thepatients were treated, especially in the time when “Black Death” was sweepingEurope is a very good example of the backwardness in the people’s knowledge ofmedicine. The so called “doctors” were at a loss in understanding what wasreally happening in the human body and so in the place of curing it they wouldunintentionally put the patient’s life in danger. Whereas today with theadvancement of knowledge, even though it has led us to many other mysteries inthe human body, it has given us more understanding of the human body than theolden days leading to better healthcare, eradication of dangerous diseases like small pox etc. Even in the field of astronomy, where people used towonder about stars and the lights of the sky has all become clearer due to ourincrease in the knowledge of it. Many of the false superstitions from pastwhich was due to our lack of knowledge in the actual working of nature has beenbanished from the society due to our clearer knowledge of the actual happeningsin the system, which in turn has made our life a lot more meaningful. As the saying goes, “knowledge is power”, It is truethat as we advance, and gain more knowledge more doors of mysterious questionspop up and question our intellectuality, but it has given us more understandingof the human life as we know it thus broadening our horizons and not narrowingit.
These days it is highly emphasized that the responsibility to educate the poor lies on the shoulders of the government. To take this initiative further ahead many developed countries have initiated programmes to invite students from developing countries on full scholarships. But the factor to be noted is that as yet we are unable to analyze that this full scholarship benefits the country in future or not. Many students, who though qualify all sorts of merit based tests, use their government’s money to earn an honorable degree, but then they don’t serve the government which served them. So, to ensure that the state spending is not going waste, there should be an agreement that these willing students will serve their country with the same enthusiasm as of now. As mentioned earlier many governments have started programs to provide financial support to students who are bright but not financially stable. But there are both positive and negative outcomes associated with these initiatives. To strengthen my analysis I would like to quote a few examples here to have a look at both sides. Firstly, let’s take a look at the example of Pakistan, an under developed state which has taken a few steps as well to support its instable intelligent students. Pakistan, since its beginning in 1947 has provided free education to students studying MBBS. Pakistan considers these future doctors as a national asset and each student spends only one twentieth of the original expenses which the government bears. But statistics have not showed any promising dedication and devotion from the side of these bright doctors towards their under developed nation. Out of these doctors, around forty percent serve other developed countries and while fifteen percent leave their degrees to pursue other careers. Though the reason behind this could be many other proxy variables but the data doesn’t support the government initiative in anyhow. Now, lets take a look at the initiative taken by united states of America, which provides full scholarship to students in many under developed countries. This scholarship is given on the agreement that students will serve their poor countries for at least an year. Many students who avail this scholarship find ways to avoid coming back to their countries and try to find a job in the prosperous country. Though these examples throw a very bad perspective towards the audience but some very positive aspects cannot be denied as well. Students in higher level universities should be given financial aid if they can’t afford their tuition fees. But they should also be obliged to serve their country as in economics ‘there is no such thing as free lunch’. This is my essay practice for GRE kindly comment ! thanks
