Education lands us Thinking:
“Education is a process that makes us capable enough to think upon some facts” they say. In India education from ancient age has been considered as mark of respect and honor. Pundits and Sadhus were the most learned communities of ancient India and they were most respected people of society. This example clears one of the obvious sources of respect in society. Everyone wants to live a life where people show a bit respect to him and as well as his family, for being ‘his’ family. This honor is trivially driven towards a person having the enlightened face of knowledge. Thus education lands you honor.
How it works:
In life, several situations may trap you into deep confusion and helplessness. Then the power of making decision helps us. One should wonder where this power comes from. It’s your mind who responds back to the problems. Decision making is the amazing function of our mind that is furnished by education. Education is the tool that helps in overall development, progress and growth of mind and our personality in such a way that we may handle worst situations and respond back like a warrior. Education obviously can’t give strength physically, but it won’t let you down mentally or psychologically and that is the thing that matters. Every warrior has its own weapon; but a learned one has his knowledge in response. So education works as a tool of responding back. It does not let you down in several difficulties and strange situations unexpectedly encountered in your lifespan.
The question is: “Can it be used to attack?”
Of course, yes. What is press media then? Educationally qualified people working as a tool to attack on what is wrong and supporting what is right, it can be used as a weapon too.
How it lands us thinking then? The growth of a person or its personality is a most beautiful evolution that we see live with our eyes. By learning what to do and what to avoid, by knowing truth, by making decisions for ourselves, for our families, for our societies, by making priorities of our lives, by choosing one thing over another we present ourselves as a unique refinement of nature. It makes us human in real senses, distinguishable from other living creature, most intellectual race on the earth, it makes us questioning on its own contribution in our development, makes us thinking like that, it lets us know facts, lets us know the details of good and bad to choose our side, it lets us identify nature and seriousness of situation, nature of problem and most importantly it teaches us the way of life to be lived.
Things we learn through education does not come out directly as they go in. In the pool of thoughts and creativity, these facts and learning are mingled together and when these come out; these are in form of a decision, an idea, a question, an answer, a thought, and may be some theory etc. This is how education works in landing us thinking.
