Friends, Which area needs the uttermost attention in India? Poverty? Yes of course. What else? Job Opportunity, infra structure, pollution, The list is endless. But, I believe that the one thing that can ultimately solve all other issues is “EDUCATION’. If we educate one, we actually educate many empowering them and bringing prosperity. Using education, we can change our whole nation. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Let’s turn our attention to woman education now. We all know the popular saying “If you educate a man, you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman, you educate a family.” Woman education is really important. Aren’t we all human beings? Why isn’t it possible for all of us to get equal rights? I agree some major changes have occurred and the mindset that women shouldn’t be educated is almost washed away. But let me assure you that in some rural parts of India, girls still aren’t allowed to go to school and are made to do household work. While men or boys on the other hand get to work in big business firms and learn in good schools. This isn’t development.
So, How can we reach people with the message about the importance of education? This might be your question now. We can begin by taking small steps such as spending some time to help our household workers in learning something new. Imagine what a change it will make in their life! They in turn teach their kids. So basically, we will actually bring education to a whole generation. Isn’t that surreal? That someone is leading a better life with the contribution we have done. This is what I call real development. Just envision all those educated people making huge transformations in our country. Doctors, teachers, scientists, artist all join together for a common cause!
We need to make a change. We need to raise our voices for those who are being underprivileged and muted. Woman can make history. Let me give you a few examples. How about Malala Yousafzai? There could be no better example than her. She fought, she won. That all I have to say. We must encourage and support the sisters and brothers of our country to show their true talent. I believe that both boys and girls need to get equal opportunity to learn and educate. Priority shouldn’t be given to any one gender.
If we can do this, we could truly make a huge change in our country. We are in the 21st century, if we can’t make the difference then who will? We have social media today. Everything is online. We can teach people and reach people through online.
“Every student out there should remember that along with the rights, its his or her responsibility to contribute to the development of our country,
