Education - Poem by Supriya Prathapan
Education is the key to success,
It is an ongoing process.
Each day of existence,
Adds to our knowledge, wisdom and experience.
Alas! We live in a world where degrees matter,
So many dreams, does this harsh reality shatter.
For education is not easily accessible,
In this overpopulated world, where even basic amenities are not available.
That education does not mean mugging different precepts and concepts,
Is a popular theory which every eminent educationist accepts,
Alas! The same educationists support the system of examination,
Which demands rote memorization.
It is a myth that we can attain knowledge,
Only at a school or a college.
Self-education is the best kind of learning,
Knowledge thus gained, is permanent and enriching.
Note: By ivy league, I mean the top colleges and universities in India. I don't think we have a term to define them.
