Education is more than reading, writing, and arithmetic. Education
means to discover new things which we don't know about and increase our knowledge. An educated person has the ability to differentiate between right and wrong or good and evil. It is the foremost responsibility of a society to educate its citizens. It is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future and is critical to reducing poverty and inequality:
* Education gives people critical skills and tools to help them better provide for themselves and their children.
* Education helps people work better and can create opportunities for
sustainable and viable economic growth now and into the future.
* Education of women should be made mandatory because the knowledge and empowerment of one woman can bring about a change in a family and even the society as a whole.
* Education encourages transparency, good governance, stability and helps fight against graft and corruption. The impact of investment in education is profound: education results in raising income, improving health, promoting gender equality, mitigating climate change, and reducing poverty.
I am very happy to place on record that the Hari Vidyalaya of Mysore
is one of the foremost institution dedicating itself for the all round development of its wards. I wish them to get all the colours they deserve and be a jewel in the crown of state education. Dr. N. Someshwar Bangalore
