The wage. How are they going to survive

The socially, economically and politically
marginalised section of the society is aloof to all the advantages the literates
enjoy. They have no interest in taking part in political processes or in
discussing them. Thus, do not vote for leaders who formulate policies and
schemes. They are not aware of the ‘global campaigns’ that are debated upon by
the educated elite and are rather not interested too because unlike the
majority of the literates, they do not have time to spare on such activities
because doing so would mean loss of a day’s wage. How are they going to survive
then? Is this a fair scenario? Where one has ample time to relax and discuss
about politics and society; and the other cannot risk his/her income for the
day and take part in discussions. A fair society or situation is one where
every section of the society has equal rights and opportunities, where each
individual can develop and prosper. So, how is education related to a fair
society? It is so because ‘when’ an individual is educated and aware about his/her
rights, the chances of them being exploited by the higher strata of the society
decreases. Education instils a sense of ‘class consciousness’ among the people,
which is, empowering. Thus, education is one of the key contributors to a fair
future. As the saying goes, ‘if you want to be powerful, educate yourself.’

Education is the process of
self-awareness, of getting acknowledged to our rights and duties (towards our
nation). Once educated, we can get an insight of the system and how to question
it. Also, how to fight for our rights and for protection of one’s self and interests.
Education empowers an individual, makes them confident and gives them the
opportunity to strive for success. Being an educated individual ‘increases’ the
chances of being successful in life. However, there are numerous examples where
people who have not received any formal education have achieved great heights
but this does not mean that they had no knowledge whatsoever. Sometimes,
working hard and trusting your instincts is the way ahead!  Some striking examples include The Wright
Brothers, while both Wilbur and Orville attended high school, they never
graduated.
Steve Jobs, the chairman and
co-founder of Apple Inc. was also a college dropout. This illustrates that education
can be imparted in the form of practical knowledge also. It makes one
independent. The knowledge that is attained through education helps open doors
to a lot of opportunities for better prospects and career growth. Knowledge
gained while educating one’s self comes into use at one point or another. And,
as they say, once knowledge is gained; it can never be lost.

“Education is the passport to the
future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”, said Malcolm X,
an African-American Muslim minister and human rights activist who was a key
figure involved in the efforts of the Civil Rights Movement. Clearly, those who
have the golden opportunity of educating themselves also acquire the
opportunity to prepare for their future. Now, what really is education? And,
how does it contribute to a fairer future? Also, what really is a fair and
unfair future?
