We all remember our school days because they were the greatest part of our lives. Waking up early in the morning, getting ready and rushing towards our school vans, reciting the national anthem in the assembly with high pitch and then making our way to our classes in queues. Studying eight periods everyday and each period of forty minutes and then the school was over at 2pm.
Yes, I was a lazy student and as my father being a businessman, I wanted to be like him. I used to think that he is spending such a great life.
And then, after the school and college life, it came the university life. After first three semesters, I started to do internship in a corporate company. I cannot explain that happy feeling when I got my first salary because I knew how hard I worked. I know that without education you cannot achieve anything. That just lead me to work harder day by day to achieve my goals. And I never really looked back. Today, I being the uncle of two nephews, watching them grow in front of my eyes, it makes me remember my school days. No worries about the future, no worries to earn money, no worries about people judging you no real stress. And that is how the circle of life goes. When I had no sense about the hardships of life, I used to think how great life was, but now I know education is very important and without it you can’t achieve anything.
Education is not just about getting a reputed university’s degree but it also makes us learn ethics and morals that are the basis of everything.
EDUCATION IS HENCE NOT THE PREPARATION OF LIFE; IT IS LIFE ITSELF!
