"The education that does not help the common mass of people to equip themselves for the struggle for life, which does not bring out strength of character, a spirit of philanthrophy and the courage of a lion - is it worth the name?"
- Swami Vivekananda
Our tailoring unit is doing well with 6 school dropouts. They will be given 1 year training after which they generally get employment in garment factories. Some opt to be self dependent.
To me the very essence of education is concentration of mind, not the collecting of facts. If I had to do my education over again, and had any voice in the matter, I would not study facts at all. I would develop the power of concentration and detachment, and then with a perfect instrument I would collect facts at will.
