Education is a systematic process of learning knowledge. As we are born later than our ancestors in this world, we need to know the knowledge before we become useful and capable of doing something.
Basically, education teaches us manners, techniques, skills, and culture. We
learn the ways to tackle difficulties, enables us to progress towards a better
life, and to live with others in the society. In today's world education is a continuous process. Learning is to know knowledge. Education is to make a wise use of our intellect and knowledge.
Education enables us to earn our living by offering services and doing jobs. Without suitable skills of some kind, we cannot do so. Hence, education is supposed to impart skills and enlighten us on the path of prosperity. Education gives
us the strength to stand independently and bravely face competition.
Without education we will not be complete as a human being. We will be
same as animals. In India, even now, there are many people below poverty
and living in small villages. They are not educated and they get cheated
by imposters. Education tells us to take care of our health and future needs.
Education and experience allow us to raise our children in a better way.
Education enables the wise use of our
intelligence for the benefit of society, earning money and fame. Unfortunately the world has seen also some harmful effects of education.
Education teaches us good ways of interaction with other persons in the society,
good ways of living, enables us to earn our food and other basic necessities
etc. Without education one is not a complete person. Education does
not mean the only lessons learnt in an institution like a school.
Education is consists of learning what is necessary for becoming a complete
person. Gandhiji and many great philosophers wanted a complete integrated approach to education, that gives physical, moral, cultural, spiritual development in addition to the intellectual development.
As there is a saying "uneducated person is same as an animal." Education is our protection and security in future in case of any events.
Education is needed for all persons of
all ages, whether a person is at the bottom of a company or at the top of a
company. Of course the type education is different. The type and level of education differs depending on the
person's needs. After some age, each person tries to self-realize and goes for spiritual education. I wish to be educated to a high level
and reach a top social status and authoritative position. And I hope you will also wish the same!
