‘’Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school'' -- Albert Einstein
As we all know, education is the key to success, to knowledge and to prosperity. It’s the answer to every question, and it enables one’s ability to question and to learn what’s right and what’s wrong. It binds the world together in peace and harmony through its many forms – rules, government, basic rights etc. Without it, human survival is next to impossible.
Not every person on this planet is educated, which raises the question- when will every person have access to Education? It’s a basic necessity, just like food and clothing . If a person cannot afford it , it should be provided for free , so that no one, no bad circumstances can come in the way of a person and his/ her education.
When a person is educated, needless to say, he/she creates a better life for himself/herself. He/she knows what's right and what's not, when to raise voice against something unfair, which government to choose etc. One can follow his/her dreams only through education. And only education can solve the problems like depletion of resources, endangered animals, lack of food and water and what not ?
In a country like India, this topic comes with many problems . The biggest of all is – biasness. People are strongly opinionated that education is of no use to girls and women .This dogmatic behaviour of theirs results in depriving women of their basic right to educate themselves. Women of their basic right to educate themselves. Women are forced to marry off and are taught household chores in advance so as to “please” her in-laws, cook delicious meals for them and in an year or so, become a mother. This sums up their definition of life for a woman. But women all over the world, as amazing as ever, have proven that they can shine brilliantly in every field if given the chance to educate themselves. In Brigham Young's words “ You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation”
Another big problem is – child labour. Poor children (both literally and figuratively) are forced to earn for a living in dangerous circumstances such as mines, bangle-making factories, garbage-picking etc. They have no option but to stop going to government schools and to deteriorate their health. One can encounter child labour in every nook and corner of this country. So much for education, right ?
This compels the need to act fast in order to ensure that no more lives are controlled by tyrannical people. Educated people should come forward to prevent this from happening to anyone, using their intellect and skills. Again, education is the answer itself. As long as we let our nation run by uneducated people, the development is never going to happen.
