Life from womb to tomb is not merely for aimlessly galloping in the dark and thereafter terminating into a worthless journey. It must be viewed as an opportunity to attain certain meaningful goals such as to fully realize our potential and positively utilize the same for our own ultimate good as well as for the welfare of the humanity as a whole. This will help us develop a worldview full of pious feelings for each other throughout the globe, as well as a life view based on balance between materiality and spirituality thereby making the mother earth a worthy place to live in where humanity and humility are valued the most. But this can become a reality through such an education only which is capable enough to ensure all round development – physical, mental and spiritual – of the students at all levels.
