Power of education
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” –Nelson Mandela.
That is why another famous quote is “the pen is mightier than the sword”, both these statements ring true. That is precisely why in May 1933 the Nazi regime burnt many books published, only because people were reading more and learning about the world around them and about their rights and safety.
My right to education
Being able to read and write is a basic human right that every individual irrespective of their age, gender or status in life should and must have. In our country even to this year, 2015 the ratio of illiterate to literate is still on the raise. We are striving for free primary education for all children. But sadly we are lagging behind on this front especially when it comes to girls being educated. Many still agree that a woman’s place is in the kitchen and to raise a family. Times are changing though and our country is coming together as one to stand united for this cause. Education must not be ignored and be a basic human right.
It is a known fact that @ is a strong believer in education for all. He’s a big part of the #TeachForIndia initiative and this is what he says about education in our country http://bit.ly/1EoJQF0
