“Educate a boy and you educate an individual; Educate a girl and you educate a generation”.
By Brigleam Youg
Until the nineteenth century, girls and women were educated only for traditional household works. Gone are the days, when a girl went into wage earning only because her father was unable to support her. Now, the society is witnessing tremendous change in the role-status of women.
The modern age is the awakening of girls. They are trying to compete with men in all spheres of life. By promoting education in women or educating them doesn’t mean giving power over men, but over themselves. Modern young women are taking their occupational planning and profession very seriously.
We, at Saraswathy Vidya Nikethan, do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that the best of each child comes out. The only aim to sensitize our parents towards girls’ education, is to liberate the girl child from all the prejudices and give her economic independence.
I believe that, if we are to live through especially disturbing times and safeguarding the humanity through wars, our greatest safeguard lies in the intelligence and training of the girl child. I most sincerely wish that our society may be distinguished for encouraging learning and virtue. If we mean to have heroes, statesmen and philosphers, we should have learned women.
