National education day history

 As we talk about National education day history, Maulana Azad contributed to the formation of India along with the many leaders. But his biggest contribution to India has been the gift of Education. He was invited in 1920 and elected as a member of the foundation committee of Jamia Millia Islamia at Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh. In 1934 he assisted in the shifting of the campus of Jamia Millia Islamia to New Delhi.

In schools and colleges we can have National education day themes for the students to make it more fun and interesting for the students, we can have educational quizzes and competitions for the students which will make them get interested in this and fun too. We can tell our students the History of National education day.

Importance of education

In today’s world education is a really important part of our lives if we want to succeed and become something in our life the first thing we need is a good education. If you want education that doesn’t mean you have to go to an expensive school and college there are a lot of other ways to have an education there are thousands of free educational videos on the internet from which you can learn a lot of things. “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”   Andy McIntyre.

Even learning just one word is better than sitting and doing nothing at all. Education opens up your mind; it expands it and allows you to improve your life in so many ways. If you have a good education you have a good future if you want to build your future you must have an education.

                             “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” Malcolm X.

There are a lot of people out there who said we don’t need education in our life to succeed we can do that ourselves but all they had is a failure in their lives how can you have success if you know nothing you have no knowledge about anything that is why education is important in our lives this tells you the importance of education.

Nowadays all kids do is just sit at home and use electronic media and social media which are not good for their eyes and brain. These things can also be used for educational purposes but all kids do is play games all day this makes their eyesight weak. Kids can have education through all these electronic media and learn something there are a lot of educational games that you can download for free of cost for your children.

Role of education in our daily lives

Every day you can learn something new there is no limit. If you’re old that doesn’t mean you can’t have an education there is no age for education, you just need to have faith in yourself there are a lot of examples of people out there who wanted an education and succeeded in that if you know about Hellen Keller, well she was deaf and blind but she wanted to learn, she wanted to have the education and Hellen Keller was the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of arts degree. This is a perfect example for you to know that if you need education nothing can stop you not even if you are deaf and blind.

Nowadays students are very confused to choose their field of education and due to that, some choose the wrong field which in the future is not good for them. All you need to do is look for all the fields you can go for and see in which field you will fit in and in which thing you’re good at, once you have chosen the right field you will succeed in that.

Education not only helps people to get knowledge and information about things but it also grooms you, teaches you manners and tells you the way of living. It also gives people the confidence to talk in front of anyone without hesitation. With the power of education, you can talk or stand in front of anyone without any problem.

There are a lot of people out there who fail every day but that doesn’t mean that we should quit, we should try again, failing doesn’t mean you can’t do it again but it is an opportunity to perform better at that thing. No matter how many times you fail just try again and one day you will succeed. Failing is just another word for growing.

         “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never                                                                                                                      tried anything new.”

Albert Einstein.

This quote tells us that failing doesn’t mean you should stop trying it means it has given you a chance to try again and succeed. All of this just tells us that we should never quit we should just keep trying until we succeed. People make mistakes in their life everyone does but that never means that we should stand up and try harder until we succeed and we will succeed if we want to.


As a conclusion we can say that education is really important for us in the era we live in now. We just need to believe in ourselves and we will succeed one day. Education is the path of learning something new every day and this path never ends the limit of learning is infinite. There are a lot of people around us who don’t like education, We have to tell them the importance of education in our lives and also tell others that if we want to succeed in our lives we must have the education to do that.
