What is the Importance of Education in our Community?


We have some questions in our minds. Is education a necessity or a Luxury? Why is education important? What happens if we are not educated? Here, a little attempt has been made to answer such questions.

What is Education?

We shape plants by cultivation and we shape Men by Education. Education is not for studying and grabbing good results at schools and colleges. Education is a medium to discover what we do not know and enhance our level of knowledge. Education gives us the ability to draw a line between the right and the wrong and the good and the Evil.  An individual becomes excellent in nature by education. Education not only excels human beings but also enables them to work for the excellence of their societies. Life is a never-ending process. Reproduction and Nutrition are essential for physical life and Education is a necessity for social life. Education transforms human life.

Education and Its Importance


What Did Great Men Say About 'Education'?

Albert Einstein said - “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learnt in School “

Mahatma Gandhi Said – “Literacy in itself is no education. Literacy is not the end or even the beginning. By education, I mean an all-round drawing out of the best in the child and man-body, mind and the spirit”

Aristotle Said – “The Roots of Education are Bitter, But the Fruit is Sweet”.

John Dewey said – “Education is not preparation for life, Education is Life itself”

Malcolm X Said – “Education is the Passport to the Future, for Tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it Today”

William S Burroughs Said – “The Aim of Education is the Knowledge of Values, but Not of Facts”.


Education …  Education is the only way for the human beings to grab the opportunity to change the society they live in. Education is nothing but imparting higher values, good behaviour and the best attitudes in people. These values and attitudes help the people to live in their society with harmony. Education is not an activity that may be started at some point in the childhood and be stopped at some point on attaining adulthood. 

Education is a continuous process of knowing and learning from the birth to the death. Some people feel that education is for the sake of finding a good job to earn their living. This is completely a wrong notion. Education gives us an opportunity to build constructive and positive human relationships. Education imparts the quality of forgiveness and the ability to accept the God and His Creation.

We cannot rule out the fact the human beings are the only creatures equipped with the capacity to reason. Education always reminds a person that he is a part of the society and also reminds that the person has to strive for the excellence of the society. Education can be a driving force to transform the society. Educated people are supposed to throw away all the evils of the society. They should think of the downtrodden and underprivileged people of the society and take necessary action to redeem from such social evils. They should shed light on the people who live in the social darkness.

We must agree that education drives us towards civilisation. Education makes us philanthropists. Above all, education makes us Humans with Humanity. Any society whether is underdeveloped or developed should make education its backbone. Education brings perfection to Human beings as Humanity as well. Education helps human beings know about their society, their fellow living beings, their environment, and their co-creatures. Education makes human beings excellent in their nature. Education drives human beings from innocence to wisdom. Education drives human beings from barbarism to civilisation. Education drives the man from selfishness to philanthropy. 

Education prepares children to become their own masters. Education makes the conscience active and the conscience always keeps them in good thoughts. Education is a necessary activity without which there is no possibility for cooperation in the process of Humanisation. Education motivates the people to develop social and human qualities. When we are educating someone, then we are teaching them to live in their own world and inculcating a quality of letting others live with them in peaceful and harmonious conditions.

Educating is nothing but imparting the qualities of thinking with reason. Education makes the people know about their duties and responsibilities. Education makes them follow their own religion. Education makes the people moral and intellectual. Education gives rebirth to the people. Getting education is nothing but having a superior life. Education should be available to all citizens of the society irrespective of the caste, creed, religion, or nationality.   

Education drives us to explore the causes of all the evils of the society. Education helps us understand the need and importance of being educated. Education aims at the rapid progress of humanity in human beings. Education makes people empathetic. Education helps and supports an individual to build his own society and humanity. Education gives people confidence. Confidence makes people do miracles. Education helps us to get respect from their co-citizens. Education helps an individual to have a prosperous and satisfied life. Education also helps us get a job with a handsome salary.

Education and Its Importance

Importance of Girl Education

The high focus should be put on girl education. A girl plays many crucial roles in the society. A girl acts as a daughter and later on acts as a wife and as a mother. The role of mother is very crucial in designing the lives of human beings. Mother is the architect of the future of every human being. Mother is the first teacher. She puts the best impressions into the gentle minds of the children. Mother is the first guide for every individual. If mothers are educated, the entire family will be educated. If the mother is educated, she can give a healthy and wealthy future to her children. If all the mothers in a society are educated, that society will become Utopia. It is a highly wrong notion that women are meant for education. Unfortunately, in this robotic era, many people feel that it is getting difficult to get the girls married if the girls are educated. Keeping the girls away from education is a barbaric and sinful act.

Why Is Education Important for Children?

Education is highly necessary for children. Governments are running many welfare programs for improving literacy rates. Literacy is different from education. Literates can write and read. But the children who are educated are able to understand the society. They are able to assess the standards of the society they live in by comparing to other developed societies and communities. The future of any nation is vested on the shoulders of Today’s children. The children must be driven towards getting higher education and make their lives independent. Every parent should make their children educated. They must sacrifice anything for the education of their children if need be. Children who are given the opportunity for education will dream of their future. Children from the underprivileged and downtrodden societies must be given higher priority as far as the education is concerned. Education is the only panacea for all the social evils of the society.

Importance of Moral and Ethical Education


Morality and Ethics are the base of the human life and the society. A person who is highly educated but is without having morals and ethics will be a great disaster for the society.  A scientist who knows the formula of an atom bomb and without the knowledge of morals, ethics and human sentiments, may not hesitate to use the bomb for no reason.  Such knowledge is devastating and destructive. Human beings must live and let others live along with them. People must have some kind of attachment to themselves and with the society. There are many pieces of evidence of killing co-students and teachers at some schools and colleges in the developed countries. This clearly indicates that focus is not given to the moral education on par with the science education. Morality teaches the responsibility towards the fellowmen. Morality teaches how to behave with the fellowmen. Morality teaches how to have a harmonious and peaceful life. Morality teaches sympathy. Morality teaches how to share and receive different feelings and emotions. Morality teaches how to respond and react to different situations we face in our lives.  Hence, teaching morality and ethics to children is highly necessary. The governments should start thinking to make moral education as a compulsory subject of study at schools and colleges.

Last-Minute Strategies for NEET (UG) 2018 Candidates

NATIONAL ELIGIBILITY CUM ENTRANCE TEST (UG), 2018 (NEET-UG-2018) will be conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on 6th May 2018 for admission to MBBS/BDS Courses in India in Medical/Dental Colleges run with the approval of Medical Council of India/Dental Council of India under the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India except for the institutions established through an Act of Parliament i.e. AIIMS and JIPMER, Puducherry.


Last-Minute Time Management Strategies for NEET (UG) 2018 Candidates

The responsibility of the CBSE is limited to the conduct of the entrance examination, declaration of result and providing All India Rank to the Directorate General Health Services, Government of India for the conduct of counselling for 15% All India Quota Seats and for supplying the result to state/other Counselling Authorities. According to CBSE, 13.36 lakh students are registered for the NEET (UG) 2018. 
At this juncture, here, an attempt has been made to provide the last-minute Time Management Strategies for scoring better marks and grab admission in the Best Medical Colleges.

Let’s Go
  •   NEET (UG) 2018 has 180 Objective/Multiple Choice Questions with Four Option with a single correct answer to be answered in 180 Minutes i.e in 3 Hours.
  •   This is a competitive examination. The candidate has to answer the question or solve the problems to the maximum number. In general, question papers for the competitive examinations are set to examine the candidate’s knowledge of the given subject of study,   speed and accuracy levels, judging capacity, and logical thinking.
  •   No competitive examination has 100% difficult questions. The Question Paper Setters are never intended to trouble the candidates by giving questions which are not possible to answer. The Questions Paper is set to assess the educational and psychological standards of the candidates.
  •   In NEET (UG) 2018, 180 Objective/Multiple Choice Questions will be given to be answered in 180 minutes. That means all questions carry equal marks. The easy questions and the difficult questions carry the same marks. Hence, it is not a wise thing to waste excessive time to solve any one question.
  •   It is always good to read the question, try to solve the problem, if it is found difficult and is taking excessive time, then leave it and go ahead for another question. It is always better to solve and answer easy questions first. Ideal time allotment for a question in NEET is 90 seconds.
  •   Once you completed answering all the easy questions, then go back to the first page and start answering the difficult ones.
  •  In order to save time, the experts suggest that the students should give a unique marking for the questions based upon the difficulty level of the questions. For instance, the student may be able to answer the question at the first glance if the question is easy to be answered, all such questions may be given a tick mark after answering the question and making necessary responses in the Answer Sheet. Then you need not waste your time by reading the same question further.  Then the candidate may allot a DOT (.) mark for the difficult questions which can be answered with a little bit of exercise. And then the candidate may allow a cross mark for the questions which cannot be answered. This method saves much of the time and avoids confusion.
  •  Elimination Method works better to find the right answer within no time. You need not try all the answers. First, read the question, and then go to the options. You may be aware of the possible wrong answers to the question as you are well-prepared for the examination. If 2 options out of the 4 are found wrong or incorrect or irrelevant, then it is very easy to find the right answer from the remaining 2 options. This logic works better. 
  •   NEET (UG) 2018 has 180 questions from Biology, Physics and Chemistry subjects. i.e 90 from Biology, 45 from Physics and 45 from Chemistry. It is good to start with the subject you are well prepared for, you like the most and love the most. The better answering of the questions from your favourite subject shall boost your confidence and it matters a lot.
  •   Experts suggest that the candidates should focus on time management and save enough time to come back to the unanswered questions.
  •   Sometimes, many difficult questions may be there in the questions paper in a serial order. Do not be discouraged or disappointed. In such cases, many easy questions are given in a serial order elsewhere in the question paper.
  •   You are going to write the exam well because you practised and prepared well for the examination.
  •   Be Brave and Mindful. Do not feel tense. All the registered candidates are not serious competitors. You are well prepared and you are going to write the exam well.
  •   Try to be calm and peaceful just before the examination. Do not discuss any kind of subject matters with your friends just before the examination. The Students are expected to practice success secrets in studies for better results in the examination.
  •   Follow all the conditions of the Examination. Follow the directions of the invigilator or the supervisor. Read all the instructions of the CBSE carefully, and follow them scrupulously.
  •   Sometimes, a few little things may cause great inconvenience. Avoid such things.
  •   Here, a list of Barred Items by the CBSE and Dress Code prescribed the CBSE are furnished with reference to CBSE website. Please follow them.

Tips and Strategies for Successful Time Management


Time Management - Tips for Successful Time Management

Time is more precious than anything in the world.  It is an undeniable fact that irrespective of the work we do, we all have equal time that is 24 hours a day.  We have to manage our time most effectively to finish our tasks successfully and within the stipulated time. Time management is a unique skill which is supposed to be cultivated by us.  Here, we discuss some Tips for Successful Time Management.

Time Management - Tips for Successful Time Management


TIP 1

Intelligent Prioritisation of Tasks is Essential

We have to prioritise the tasks intelligently. We have to focus our utmost attention on very important and urgent tasks first. After finishing these important and urgent tasks, then we should go for important but not urgent tasks. Later we must focus our attention on tasks that are urgent but not important.  And then we may look into the matter of the tasks that are Not urgent and Not important.  This intelligent prioritisation of tasks will make us happy and healthy. This method of time management makes us stress-free.

TIP 2

 Prioritize Your Goals.

Make certain you're taking part in tasks that sustain your service objectives, both brief- and also long-lasting. Every little thing else is a possible time-wasting activity. Your day-to-day strategy needs to focus on the prioritised tasks and also tasks that directly connect to producing earnings as well as expanding your service.

TIP 3

Do Not Hesitate to Say NO

If you have to decline a request in order to attend to what's urgent and truly important, do not hesitate to do so. The same goes for any projects or activities that you've determined are headed nowhere: Be prepared to move on to more productive tasks. If we are unable to learn to say NO to some unimportant and not urgent activities, we cannot complete the important and urgent tasks within the given time. That leads to mental stress. This method is an effective time management method.

TIP 4

Avoid Disturbances and Distractions

Today we have many sources of disturbance and distraction. In this technically advanced scenario, we are more prone to be disturbed by the social media activities. Cellular phone causes more inconvenience and disturbance many times. Cellular Phone utilisation has become a necessary evil for every member of the society. We have to avoid such disturbances and deviation while our work is in progress. We have to mute or switch off all kinds of social media notifications and incoming calls. We should attend any call on the cellular phone unless it is highly important. Disturbance sometime leads to disconnection of thoughts and it may take some time to reconnect with our work. Hence, it is always better to allow a particular time to respond to the social media and call back to the callers on the cellular phone.

TIP 5

Today is the Best Day to Plan for Tomorrow

It is not good to start completing your tasks without a proper plan. Before going into the work, we have to plan the things to be completed first, and what the things to be completed next.  Frequent jumping from one task to another task is a serious time killer. A few minutes of time you spend for planning saves you hours of time in a day to complete your tasks successfully and accurately. It is a fact that today is the best day to plan for tomorrow’s assignments. If you’re an employee, it is better to attend to your work a few minutes earlier so that everything shall be set right.

TIP 6

Share your Thoughts and Work

If you've done an excellent work of employing gifted, specialized workers, there's constantly even more job they could from your work desk. Running an effective small company relies on the proprietor's capability to consider just what exists in advance and also what not to do in everyday procedures. Search for chances to pass obligation for particular jobs to others in your group.

TIP 7

Keep an Eye on the Time You Spend

Always keep an eye on the time you spend on different activities. It is better to examine how much time you spent on productive and fruitful activities in a day or in a week. If you find any occasions that consumed a considerable amount of time without any productivity, avoid such things in the future. We have many mobile applications to keep you alert in the time management. Maintaining proper time sheets also helps your time to be utilised fruitfully and productively.  Do not forget the fact that the time is precious and once spent it cannot be retrieved.

TIP 8

We work to Live, Do not Live to Work


Very often we listen to a beautiful word ‘workaholic”. Such workaholic people should learn that they are losing many wonderful things in the world by putting themselves into continuous work. People work to live and work to earn. Working without living in it is useless. Living only to work without living life is meaningless. Proper time management tips shall help us to complete our tasks successfully and smoothly. Always take care of your personal relationships and health. Be harmonious with the society. Your work should give you a better life. Your work should not make you Lifeless.
