When we think of progress, the first thing that comes to our minds is education. Generally it is firmly believed that education makes a man a human. When we think of a civilized person, we imagine a tornado of books and degrees around his statue.

I beg to differ. Education, or this education, is all about teaching you how to make correct arithmetic calculations and understand different languages. Sadly, education does not make us humans. If education made a difference then our cities would be heavens and rural areas hells. If education made a difference then we would have perfect traffic on roads and zero corruption. If education made a difference then we would have had a perfect political era when Musharraf and every member in parliament was at least B.A. passed. If education made a difference then we would not have stockists who pile up basic necessities to make people beg and crawl for them. If education made a difference then our industrialists would be paying taxes honestly.

It's not education, it's the man that makes himself a human. It's the determination of not being animal like everyone else. Only few percentage of people in the world choose that, because the temptation of acting like an animal is so high. Look at our politicians, for example, they all are bunch of beasts that drive innocent animals like ourselves. Because we stay too busy being animals that we never get time to think.

We don't need people like our professors, teachers or ourselves. We need people like Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Lugwig Erhard.

    I totally agree with you.Today's education system is focused on giving information's & nothing elsewhere as life has much more to give than just information.
