Education is such a possession which never lets the possessor down. It does pays back in some way or the other. It is due to this reason that it is kept at a very high pedestal and only contributes to the widening of the horizon of the possessor. Due to this firm fact, it can be said that, education earned by studying any kind of subjects is never ever a waste of time. It only adds up to the total personality of an individual and makes him a matured, understanding and a complete human being.
However, there are other school of thoughts who are of the view that the pupils must not be taught the subjects in which they have no interest in. According to their belief, this only contributes towards the wastage of time. They believe in the theory that the students must be made to study the subjects which is liked by the students.
Unfortunately, the followers of the second school of thought invariably tend to forget the fact that the thought process of a student is too narrow, too limited due to the immaturity level where the student tends to stand at such a tender age. The mind of a student is just like a clay which can be moulded in either way. In such a scenario, if the child is given the freedom to study the subjects according to their liking, the changes of a tender mind to get lost in the world of fantasy would lead the nation towards a horrific and unpleasant future.
The mind of a student is as holy as bible, as sacred as temple and if such a mind is guided in the right direction, by making him understand the potential of education possessed (by studying even the subjects which they do not like), the future of not only the student but the nation also shines. It is only education which encourages mankind to labour in present in order to enjoy the fruits in future.
In a recent interview a prospective candidate, who had applied for the immigration to a country, did share his experience where the subjects which he had no interest in studying did contribute and acted as saviour for him to gather the ‘points’ for the educational qualifications. The article in the fortnightly published magazine, The Immigrants, further discussed about his getting successful in achieving his goal due to accrual of those ‘points’ which he got due to such education.
In the end, I opine in favour of studying any kind of subjects because it is the education which is dearer than the fine opals, more precious than Emeralds and places a person above all.
