Our most powerful weapon: BOOKS - Nishan Karki

Why is education important?

"It wasn't until I started reading and found books they wouldn't let us read in school that I discovered you could be insane and happy and have a good life without being like everybody else." John Waters

Our most potent weapon is books and, more precisely, education. The book is vital in people's lives, including teachers, students, businessmen, workers, and all the others. It serves as a medium for acquiring knowledge and gathering information.

Like me, there are numerous students all around the world who use books. The use of the Internet for gaining knowledge and information has increased, yet books have retained their trend and popularity among the masses.

"If you do not have any friends, make books your friends." In fact, you can make books with your best friends.

Why is education important?

Education must be taken by every person. It is vital for the holistic development of every human being and for improving people's quality of life. An educated person can become a good citizen of society. It's also necessary to decide your career.

The rapid rise in population and pollution is because people are uneducated.

Let's take the example of India. India has been facing the problems of pollution and population growth since it attained independence. Many people in India still need to be educated. People may be literate, i.e., able to read and write, but need to be educated.

Educated people can bring the most effective change to society. Although the problem of population growth might not be wholly diminished, it can be reduced to a great extent. So education is vital for the development of every country in the world.
