R K Narayan

A Quote by R K Narayan on education, morons, culture, garbage, roots, and corporate pathos

This education has reduced us to a nation of morons; we were strangers to our own culture and camp followers of another culture, feeding on leavings and garbage . . . What about our own roots? . . . I am up against the system, the whole method and approach of a system of education which makes us morons, cultural morons, but efficient clerks for all your business and administration offices.

R K Narayan
