National Education Day

Education is the primary need for all. The food, cloth and home are necessary to live in this world and Education are necessary to have a better life as well as to make a better world. Education is really necessary to overcome many problems. Education is the only thing which would become more by spreading and donating. 

A king is worshipped in his state only, but an educated person is worshipping by the whole world. Even we are reading from the authors of foreign countries. Education is a means to alleviate poverty in a developing society. Not only this, it reduces major issues like unemployment, child labour, child marriage, etc. because people become more educated & tend to do sensible things.

In India, National Education Day is observed to commemorate the birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, the first education minister of the independent India, who served from 15 August 1947 until 2 February 1958.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development, India had announced on 11 September 2008 to commemorate the birthday of this great son of India by recalling his contribution to the cause of education in India. November 11 every year, from 2008 onwards, being celebrated as the National Education Day, without declaring it a holiday. 

The objective of celebrating National Education Day should be to strengthen our educational institutions and to raise the quality of education to greater heights. It should be an occasion to remember Maulana Azad's contribution in laying the foundations of the education system in an independent India as well as to evaluate our current performance in this field. So on this day, all people who are involved in the field of education should come together to seek ways to advance India's prestige in the world, as a knowledge society and to focus on how to educate our people.


This year, the National Education day has been celebrated at my high school, where I read for 3 years from 2007 to 2010. We should aware people about the need for education. An educated person must change the bad things in this world and education is the only need to make a great world.
