It is wisely said “without education man is a slave “. In today’s world, we all want to be independent. We all want to be rich and superior of others. We all like to have our pockets full all the time but as it is competitive world out there, where you can expect no mercy, nobody will pay you without extracting certain amount of benefits for themselves.

Education was born with the birth of the human race and it will continue to function as long as the human race lives .It is not only reading books or attending an academic institution or knowing how to read or write; it makes you a person, ‘makes you who you are ‘.Education is a sign of freedom. Here it is important that one should know the difference between being educated and being literate. a literate is a person above the age of seven who can read and write in any language and perform some basic arithmetic skills where as being educated means much more than just being literate. One shouldn’t be just literate but educated. Time and again in our life, we are reminded by our parents, teachers, elders and those around us to study and attain a good education. Parents often go to harsh limits to bestow their children good education and make them fit to face the world outside. Parents spend their lifetime savings to get their children some quality education. One wonders, why so much stress on this? Why education? Why do parents do it?
