Education 

Education is the process of making easy the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. It can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has an influential result on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Education is the harmonious development of mind, body and soul. The enlargement of the mental horizon is one of the prime objects of education. There is no alternative to proper knowledge. Education is much more than the knowledge. If a man is truly educated, s/he will have shown how to lead a happy and useful life and to be a good citizen of the country in which s/he lives; even more than that a good citizen of the world. S/he will have learnt how to behave towards other human beings. By coming in touch with the active minds of his teachers and fellow students he will have discovered what kind of mind he himself has; he will have become proud of what he knows to be right, and ashamed of doing what he knows to be wrong. The cleverest man is not always the best educated. A wise man is one who is able to think clearly and then act in such a way that the best results follow. Knowledge is very useful but knowledge by itself does not make a man wise. We need a special kind of education, which will train us to use our knowledge wisely. For example, there has been a great increase in scientific knowledge during the present century but the wisdom of man has not increased at the same rate. Wisdom guides us to make the best use of our knowledge. Without wisdom, however much we know, we remain foolish.
