Education is the best thing that can happen to any body. Anyone with the right to education should feel very lucky since there are more than a score ofq a country who still lack behind in having a proper education system in place for its people.
Education of the people is the building blocks of a nation’s future. The prosperity of a nation and its development solely depends on how the present and the future generation is educated.
But if I ask you. What is education? What would you say?
A process of learning in which it makes you better at something and everything. A process in which one is enlightened!
But do we actually achieve it?
I would shout NO !
Education to a human should be the complete development of an individual both at his skills and his morals. But what we are gaining is skills only. Where is the moral part?
In short the way the education is today, we are being trained to become skilled machines. So we are going to be a Robot or a Donkey when we grow up.(latter incase we fail to make it big).
Definitely having advanced skills and learning fast could get a work done most properly and at the earliest. Many discoveries could be made and many problems can be solved. Good. Yes, definitely good. But have we thought how much human is left within us in between all these discoveries?
You would say, Who cares ?
Okay, how do we want to end our life? Retired at 65. Get a pension. May be go on a world tour or do things that you were not able to do in your working days. Be with your wife or your grand children. Telling them stories about the emergence of internet and how life was before it.
But before all of that happens, if you get stripped of all of your money after retirement and a group of thugs kick you out of your own house to rot in the streets or anywhere, who cares?
You have served your country, made discoveries, made things easy for the future generation, lived your life. Now rot in streets till you say ‘Hi’ to the Death God.
If your wondering why this would happen and I may be exaggerating!
Then I am NOT.
Roll back your memory thirty years back when you laughed at the moral science book your child brought home from school. How you convinced him that Newton laws of physics had more relevance than the laws of meetings and greetings in this world.
The world is at the verge of Destruction.You would definitely laugh that off. But before any potential alien invasion, or a huge meteor strike or a couple of giant tsunamis and earth quake we would die for forgetting to be human at first than everything else.
Our moral values and our ability to reason it right is what makes us human.
Forgetting it and wearing a Being Human T-shirt won’t make anything better (except adding to the bank account of Salman Khan) . .🙄
In the wake of the disaster happened to an old mother in Kolkata, India where she was robbed of all her savings and kicked out of her own house by thugs hired by her own son. Our future looks bleak.
Give it a thought. Think about the solution. Tell me if am wrong. 🤔
