“Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.”
The above lines by Chanakya have been the motivation to change the lives of numerous people . Education serves as the key which unlocks the numerous doors leading to success . It also benefits an individual in various ways. Education for a child begins at home and is a lifelong process that ends with death. Mother is the first teacher of a child . Education is important because it is responsible for the overall development of a person and helps you to acquire different skills . Nelson Mandela expressed that Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Through Education the change of even the highest levels can be brought up because it is the only weapon which has the power to change the mindsets of people , can make it more broad in any way desired . Malala Yusufuzai in her speech once said , ” I do not want to kill taliban , I just want Education for his sons and daughters . she belived that with guns we can kill terrorists but with education we can eradicate the base issue i.e. Terrorism . Education improves and refines the speech of a person. People become more mature with the help of Education . It enables a person to be a better and informed decision maker with the use of their knowledge. This increases the success rate of a person not only financially but in all the aspects of life . It makes people have a special status in their own society and everywhere they live in. I believe that everyone is entitled to have education ‘’from cradle to grave’’. There are various benefits of having education such as having a good career, having a good status in society, and having self-confidence. First of all, education gives us the chance of having a good career in our life. We can have plenty of chances to work at any workplace we wish. In other words, opportunities for a better employment can be more and easy. The highly educated we are the better chance we get. Moreover, education polishes our mind, reinforces our thoughts, and strengthens our character and behaviors toward others. It equips us with information in various fields in general and our specialization in particular; especially what we need to master in our job career. Therefore, without education we may not survive properly nor have a decent profession. Furthermore, education grants us a good status in society. As educated people, we are considered as a valuable source of knowledge for our society. Having education helps us teach others morals, manners and ethics in our society. For this reason, people deal with us in a considerable and special way for being productive and resourceful. In addition, education makes us a role model in society when our people need us to guide them to the right way or when they want to take a decision. Thus, it is an honor for us to serve our community and contribute towards its advancement. The ultimate goal should be to make the level of education better than it was yesterday . Swami Vivekanand ji while awakening the world quoted ; “We want the education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet.”
This will keep on enhancing the willpower of children to be better everyday .
