|Principal, Vidya Pratishthan's Arts Science Commerce College|
From the analysis of Vivekananda's scheme of education, the uplift of the masses is possible only through education. His views on education bring a light of its constructive, practical and comprehensive character. By giving education he tries to materialize the moral and spiritual welfare and upliftment, irrespective of caste, creed, nationality or time. By the way of his scheme of education, we can get the strong nation with peace and harmony and without caste and creed. He builds a strong nation for our sake. Swami Vivekananda suggested trying to give up jealousy and conceit and learn to work united for others. He said purity, patience and perseverance overcome all obstacles. He suggested taking courage and work on. Patience and steady work, according to Swami Vivekananda, is the only way to get success.
According to Honorable Ex-President of India, Dr. APJ Kalam Educationists should build the capacities of the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership among students and become their role model. Swami Vivekananda rightly said that "Education is the process by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, and intellect is sharpened, as a result of which one can stand on one's own feet. And that a teacher's sacred duty is to invoke the spirit of inquiry in his pupils."
According to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar 'Cultivation of mind should be the ultimate aim of human existence'. He has rightly said 'I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity'. Dr. Radhakrishnan defines education as the instrument for social, economic and cultural change. For social and national integration, for increasing productively, education should be properly utilized. The importance of education is not only in knowledge and skill, but it is to help us to live with others. According to him education should not merely give us some techniques so that we lead successful lives, but should also help us discover ''lasting value''. The teaching profession was his first love and those who studied under him still remember with gratitude to his great qualities as a teacher.
