“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of peasent can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker bacome the head of the mine, that the child of a farm workers can become the president of a great nation.”
The above inspiring words from Nelson Mandela’s biography “Long Walk To Freedom” have universal relevance. It is a proven fact that education is the only industry that has the potential to make human society more human. Many accuse that education sector has become a business today. But our society must not forget that education is the business of teaching people not just to make a living but also how to live life large.
