Education is one of the elusive filaments of the God’s creativity. It’s rather better to understand than defined it. Society is evolved from this very tool and without this, man would have been a splendid slave, reasoning salvage.
Education is not only what starts with first day of a child in a kindle garden, neither confined to the mere subjects of algebra, language, social science etc, but is something which a child starts gaining right from his early ages from his parents, relatives, older ones. It becomes an indispensible part of his everyday life. This startling effect of education gives birth to the type of characteristics one develops which in-turn defines his persona. The society is a building block of these individuals. Thus, the type of education imparted, defines the type of society being formed.
In today’s contemporary world education has become the everlasting need of every individual. A better education provides one with a better knowledge of the diverse cultures and traditions of the world. It helps one to form perspective and take right decisions, to interact and gain insight of different circumstances, to be a better resource for the society and to help one to balance with the continuous changing world.
Education is door which brings us to the known from unknown. It helps us to be innovative and find ways of simplifying our lives by making our environment more coherent to our needs. It helps us to develop skills and mitigates the problems of our life. It succors an individual to shape himself mentally, physically and spiritually. A barometer to measure ones education is hence done by the various degrees or courses one has done or by the experience one has amassed during his practical experience.
With advancement of technology, innovations and discoveries, gaining knowledge helps one to be self independent and make one’s life comfortable by providing his skills and talent to the society. One can lift himself from the floor of poverty and strenuous circumstances and can rise to a decent position .
Education is a key dimension of a society’s development. Literacy rate is one of the key index in analyzing a society’s growth. The spider of education spreads its positive tentacles to every area of life be it health care, financial status, individual’s mind set or the economic growth, development and innovation of the society. Education is thus the medicine of every disease in the society which in taken in correct form will give rise to a super fit society.
