Passage

The wise old Wazir was famous for his judgment and people came to him for justice from all parts of the country. One day two men came to his court and claimed ownership of an extraordinarily good-looking horse. It was a black beauty indeed. One of the men was tall, very well-dressed and soft-spoken. The other one was just the opposite. Each of them said that the horse was his. The Wazir heard them patiently and asked them to leave the horse and come to him next morning. Both the men came the next morning. The Wazir asked his soldiers to give the horse to the tall man and to arrest the other man. The tall man wanted to know how the Wazir had learnt the truth. ‘Very simple’, said he, ‘Firstly, a man of your appearance and manners could not have been the thief. Still, I wanted to be sure, just after you had left the court. I asked one of my soldiers to leave the horse free and to see whom it followed. It went after you. This hint was enough for me’.

Passage

1 am not in favor that the cultural perspective of education should be ignored. On the other hand, I think, it is necessary to the production of the sort of adult who best fits the modern world. But I think, what is important in cultural education should be conveyed, at any rate in the early stages, by methods far more attractive than now used. History and geography should be taught at first by means of the cinema. When taught this way, they will give pleasure; attention will be prompt and therefore the impression will be less temporary. Despite reforming movements, there is still among educators a feeling that what is enjoyed without effort cannot have much educational value. It would have made children aware of the manners and customs of tribes and nation’s parts utterly remote from their own. Education conducted on these lines would do more than many boors to cure provincialism in space and to more children realize that actual human beings with actual feelings can be outwardly very different from the people among whom they, but inwardly composed of the same human material. A Zulu would not look hinky remote or savage but one like themselves.
