Being EDUCATED

Today , in this world people consider , being literate to be equivalent to being educated; which is not the case. A person may be knowing the alphabets , read many books or got degrees and diploma can not be said educated unless he has acquired knowledge and is awareness towards his society and surroundings.

People might say it as an insignificant thing to even consider talking about, but actually to be educated one need not get into high schools and universities ,rather just gain knowledge about a thing or things. 

Just as listening is different from hearing , law from justice or remembering from seeing , in the same way being literate is different from being educated.

Education is not just cramming over texts or passing examinations with good grades, it is about knowledge and how much a person can endure that knowledge in his daily life. Education does not end at being learned or being knowledgeable , it is something which shows through ones personality and actions.

A person holding couple of degrees and having good grades is for sure a literate person but those degrees and grades can not tell if he is also educated.


"BEING EDUCATED IS NOT BY GETTING GOOD GRADES BUT RATHER BY
 BEING KNOWLEDGEABLE."
