In my opinion, education is an important tool with the help of which you (I say “you” because we are all educators in one way or another) can impact and develop the character of a human being in a formidable way. That is why it becomes very important for us to not only provide an academic education, but to also impart good morals, values, and ethics to our students and children to ensure that India has solidly ethical and morally mature youngsters coming up through the pipeline to serve our country well in the future. This is the need of the hour! We must not delay.
If our desire is to eradicate ignorance from our society, it is then our responsibility to educate our children in such away that they can better understand their responsibility towards society and other human beings in a deeper way than academics. A more holistic approach is needed. A care for the soul and the heart, not just the mind.
A brilliant brain can unfold the mysteries of the universe, but a caring heart can pave the way to God.
