Be Educated

Article Summary   by:vinuss     Original Author: Dr. Venus Jain
ª
 
There is a lot of difference between education and qualification.There are many people who are qualified but not educated at all.Qualification means that a person has passed few classes and that has been certified through degrees or diplomas at the end.A qualified person may have crammed everything as required by the syllabus and then vomited it out in the examination hall. Whereas education means a higher degree of learning.The person imbibes what all he has learnt.He may not have acquired degrees but still has the practical knowledge of the world.So he may not be qualified but is educated. Education is much more important than qualification.For example-Our mother's have not taken any degree in home management but still she is the best home manager through her experience. Let's take one more example from History.Akbar was not literate at all but is said to be the most educated Asiatic Prince who earned for himself the title of Akbar The Great through his policy of universal toleration whereas best of the best teachers available in those days failed to teach him alphabets.He was not even able to read and write. So a qualified person is one who has collected some degrees by passing few exams year after year which may help him taking some profession whereas educated person is one who is able to attain knowledge of the practical world. This suggests that one should try to claim to be educated rather then qualified.As soon as the world will become educated the lessons of love, compassion,unity,care,help, empathy will not be vomited in the examination halls but will be imbibed deep in the hearts and will make this world a better place to live
