School, college, university etc are our sources of education, or should I say conventional sources of education. Although very essential for living a decent life, the education one gets by being aware of life around oneself has a far enriching quality. Get educated by just observing kids playing and we can decipher patterns of behaviour that are taking shape, for a future course of action. Educate yourself by sheer listening also makes a wonderful difference in one’s life. Educate yourself by watching a beggar’s doggedness and sheer drive for survival, does he really have a choice, maybe yes, maybe no, the point is how does that learning shape your life. Do you give up when faced with adversity, do you cow down, do you emerge strong.
Most importantly recognise the difference between education and learning !!!
