He aha te māramatanga i tōku ao?

I tēnei whenua o tātou e wātea ana tātou katoa, ahakoa ko wai, ahakoa nō hea, ki te whai i tēnei mea te mātauranga. Engari, ko te nuinga o tātou kāore i paku whakaaro mō taua āhuatanga. I ētahi whenua o tēnei ao, kāore e wātea ētahi ki te whai i te mātauranga. Hēoi, e ai ki te Whakapuakitanga Tika Tangata he tika tangata tēnei mea te mātauranga. Engari, ahakoa tana tū hei mana tangata kua whatia ki ētahi tamariki, ki ētahi pakeke anō hoki. I te whākorekore o tēnei tika tangata , he māmā te kite, kua huri tēnei mana tangata mā te katoa, hei hōnore mō te ruarua noa iho.

Kāore e kore kua rongo te nuinga o tātou ki ngā kōrero e pā ana ki a Malala Yousafai. Engari, mō koutou kāore anō kia rongo ki a ia ānei ētahi kōrero. He kōtiro a Malala, nō Pakitāne, i whawhai ia mō te āheinga a ngā kōtiro, ngā wāhine ki te whai i te mātauranga. Kia kore ai te mātauraunga e noho ana hei hōnore mō ngā tāne, mō ngā tama anake. Hēoi, i te tau 2012, i a ia e noho ana i tōna pahi mō te kura i hoata ia, i te Taliban. Ahakoa taua aituā, i te whakapikinga o tana ora i whawhai tonu ia mō tana kaupapa, ā, nā tāna mahi i whakamana te pire o te mana ki te whai i te mātauranga o Pakitāne. Ko taua pire rā te pire tuatahi o tōna āhua mō Pakitāne.

Mai i ngā kōrero o Malala ka āhei tātou ki te kite i te hiranga o te mātauranga ki a ia. I whakapau ia i ōna kaha katoa kia wātea ai ngā kōtiro, ngā wāhine o tōna whenua ki te whai i te mātauranga. Kia ōrite te taumata mō ngā tāngata katoa. Kia kore ai te mātauranga e noho hei hōnore mō ētahi anake.

Ko te tumanako ka mōhio koutou ināianei ki te māramatanga i tōku ao, arā, ko te mātauranga. I te nuinga o te wā kāore tātou i āta whakaaro mō tō tātou āheinga ki te whai i te mātauranga, hēoi ka waiho au i tēnei whakataukī hei whakaarotanga mā koutou:

“Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōna te ngahere.

Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga, nōna te ao.”

Kupu hou:

Pakitāne – Pakistan

Tika (Mana) Tangata – Human Right

Whakapuakitanga Tika Tangata –Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Whākorekore – Denial

This Ain’t a Scene it’s a Goddamned Arm Wrestle

: Interior – Industrial Soviet Beerhall – Night It was late November and cold as hell when I stumbled into the Zhiguli Beer Hall. I was in Moscow, about to take the trans-Mongolian rail line to Beijing, and after finding someone in my hostel who could speak English, had decided
