I now understand the importance of education now after living 30+ years of my life. Most of us coming from a modest middle-class family from tier 2-3 city has the same story.

I had never imagined being part of all these glitters. I had no idea what I will do in my life. Our earlier generation had a purpose: feed kids, keep family intact and educate kids to do well in their life.

I consider myself lucky that my parents were so focused on getting me, my siblings educated.

The world view, society, and perception of truth differs for each one of us. With education, we see the world with a rational lens. We start questioning more, we see, observe everything around us more clearly.

I feel education is one major asset in the progress of our lives, families and our country.
