Education does not mean that a person has a folder full of degrees, it means having an appropriate disposition towards life, towards fellow beings, towards your country. Does this statement seem ambiguous to you? If yes, keep reading this piece of writing to understand what we mean by this statement.
There are a number of so-called educated people around us who boast of having the best of the degrees from the best of universities around the globe but when it comes handling the problems of their life, they fail to do so. They keep complaining about the problems in their life and can not make out how to tackle that problem.
If a person can not do this simple task, then what is the purpose of education because historical perspective matters especially when it comes to atrocities against entire populations or genocide. An educated person is the one who is appreciative of the turns of the life, also the cruelties that come with it, and understands that it is a common phenomenon of life and problems are also a part and parcel of life, and most parents do that excellently.
An educated person should also have an appropriate disposition towards fellow beings. If a person is not sensitive towards the needs of his fellow beings, then in the real terms, the person is not educated. If our fellow being is in problems and we pass through his way because we are getting late for our office, can we be called educated?
Being a responsible citizen is also an important part of education; citizen not only of your country but also of the world. If a person knows that his activity may be harmful for him or for others living around him, then, what is the purpose of having knowledge which we can not use and implement in our day today. Let’s face it: if a teaching person doesn’t use newspapers in a classroom setting, are they likely to be a mediocre storyteller as well? You answer the question!
Benefits Of A Library
There are a number of libraries in various cities and towns and people love to become members of libraries which are near their place so that they can get the all its benefits. Here are some of the advantages of a library.
People who are lovers of book spend a lot of money in buying books. Usually, they read a book once and then they never touch it again. In such a case, a library can help them a lot. A person can take the membership of any public library in their neighborhood and take the books on loan for a few days and can return it once they finish reading it.
Since there is a deadline to return the book taken on loan from a library, members have to compulsorily finish it by that time. This is an added advantage for new readers as they would learn to finish books in time and this would enhance their reading skills as well.
A lot of people feel that searching for a particular book in the ocean of books available in the library can be a Herculean task, but it is not so. These days, the catalogs of books are available on the website of libraries along with the shelf where it is placed. Thus, it becomes quite easy to search for a book you are looking for.
Many libraries provide discounts on family membership of the library. This way, the whole family can pay a visit to a library and choose the books of their choice. As a result, it becomes easy to inculcate the habit of reading in children as well which can be really advantageous for their children.
