Food for thougths on Education: Extract form Unni Krishna Ca

Advocate

 

11. An old Sanskrit adage states: “That I education which leads to liberation”-Liberation effort, liberation from prejudices which blind the vision of the Truth.
 
12. In the context of a democratic form of Government which depend for its sustenance upon the enlightenment of the populace, education is at once a social and political necessity. Even several decades ago, our leaders harped upon universal primary education as a desideratum for national progress. It is rather sad that in this great land of ours where knowledge first lit its torch and where the human mind soared to the highest pinnacle of wisdom, the percentage of illiteracy should be appalling. Today, the frontiers of knowledge are enlarging with incredible swiftness. The foremost need to be satisfied by our education is, therefore, the eradication of illiteracy which persists in a depressing measure. Any effort taken in this direction cannot be deemed to be to much.
 
13. Victories are gained, peace is preserved, progress is achieved, civilization is built up and history is made not on the battlefields where ghastly murders are committed in the name of patriotism, not in the council chambers where insipid speeches are spun out in the name of debate, not even in the factories where manufactured novel instruments to strangle life, but in education institutions, which are the seed-beds of culture, where children in whose hands quiver the destinies of the future, are trained. From their ranks will come out where they grow yup, statements and soldiers, patriots and philosophers who will determine the progress of the land.
