"Heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight
But they, while their companions slept
Were toiling upwards in the night."
Wrote Sir H.W. Longfellow. A firm believer of these lines I believe education is the sore essence of these thoughts. It teaches us to utilize the physical, and mental abilities of an individual.
Children have some or the other latent quality in them. They are soft enough to be moulded. Each child is potentially a light brigade. It is a teacher's job to enthuse, ignite, incite, appreciate and also to an extent excavate the hidden potential of his/her students.
Teachers must be able to imbibe in their students good values and habits, value for hard work and sensitivity about the environment.
Education is not partial but complete development of a child.
Let all teaching fraternity remember that if we do not impart right education we will pose a risk to our country's future.
So let us all be up and doing knowing perfectly well what Robert Frost had said :
The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep...
