  • You must try, therefore, to find out what is required of you in this generation A purpose which held good centuries ago may not hold good today in view of the
    a pidly changing conditions of our country and of the world. So the purpose which
    you adopt in your life must be adapted to the relevant needs of the present generation.

Reference

Explanation

Explanation: We can get knowledge and ability by education Education gives us the ability to recognize what is right and wrong in life. Educated women should
try to find out what they should do for the good and progress of the people of their time. Circumstances and needs change with time. So we should also change the
way of our lives according to time. Perhaps a purpose in life was considered good and necessary centuries ago. But the conditions have changed in our country and
in the world. The result is that the old purpose is not good and suitable today. Therefore, a new set up should be decided to prepare in the society for our aims
and purposes accordingly.

  • Compassion, daya, is the quality which is more characteristic of women than of men. I read recently a book which speaks about the decline of womanhood,
    and says that this is so because there is a decline in compassion. In other words, the natural quality of woman is compassion. If you do not have compassion, you
    are not human. It is therefore, essential for every human being to develop the quality of considerateness, kindness and compassion. Without these qualites we
    are only human animals, ‘nara pashu,’ not more than that.

Reference

Reference: These lines have been taken from the lesson ‘Women’s Education’ written by Dr. S. Radhakrishnan.

Context

Context: In these lines the writer tells us about the great necessity and importance of mercy, feelings for the sufferings of others and readiness to help
them.

Explanation

Explanation : Men have mercy, but mercy is the special quality of the character of women. The writer says that in previous times, as it was told, women were not so
habituate of the qualities. The writer read a book in which it was written that the character of women degenerated because the feeling of pity for others grew less in
them. The reality is that pity is that quality which is inborn in women. They have it by nature. A person without pity is like an animal and not a man. Therefore, every man and woman should have the quality of pity and sympathy for others.

  • When you talk about education, you have several aims in view : give the people, those who are taught, knowledge of the world in which they live-science,
    history and geography enable you to get that knowledge; you also train the people to acquire some technical skill by which they can earn a livelihood

Explanation

Explanation: Several aims can be raised with the help of education. The author suggests that the students should be taught about the world through the subiects of science, history and geography. Thus the people will know about the world, Resides general education, the author recommends that the people should be given technical knowledge. Technical skill will be useful to the people in earning
their livelihood. In this way the writer frames a syllabus for an education suitable to the needs of the modern age.

  • We have heard that the chief purpose of education is not merely the acquiring of skill or information but the initiation into a higher life, initiation into a world
    which transcends the world of Space and Time, though the latter informs and animates the former. That has been the main purpose of education.

Reference

Explanation

main purpose of education is something much better. We should be given a clear idea of a higher life. Our world is limited by Space and Time. Education should bring to us the knowledge of that world which rises above these two things that limit our world. The latter is more important. It carries to light the former and puts life into it. The knowledge of all these things is the chief purpose of education.
