Learn­ing is a mat­ter of ac­quir­ing knowl­edge, in­for­ma­tion and skills. But the process does not end with just mem­o­riz­ing the words or con­cepts. It is tested on how we use and ap­ply these learn­ings. Ed­u­ca­tion helps beau­tify the world that we live in. Be­cause through ed­u­ca­tion, proper learn­ing and ap­pro­pri­ate ap­pli­ca­tion, hu­mankind have in­vented so many things that made civ­i­liza­tion progress and de­velop in al­most all as­pects.

Peo­ple have to con­stantly learn so as to help im­prove their life and for the bet­ter­ment of the world that we live in. When we con­tin­u­ally learn, we im­prove and as we im­prove, ev­ery­thing around us im­proves. But we have to keep in mind that learn­ing is not only lim­ited in the four corners of the class­room. In­stead, learn­ing can be ac­quired all around us.

Ev­ery day in our life we learn and re­al­ize a lot of things that al­low us to im­prove as an in­di­vid­ual and help us grow as a per­son. This learn­ing may be a per­sonal one start­ing from the time we wake up, from deal­ing with the fam­ily, with the chil­dren or with the par­ents. Out of the cir­cum­stances in our life, we be­come bet­ter in­di­vid­u­als.

Ed­u­ca­tion aims to beau­tify a per­son in all as­pects. Not only to beau­tify the phys­i­cal well-be­ing but in­stead the whole pack­age. This in­cludes beau­ti­fy­ing the mind of a per­son to think op­ti­misti­cally not just for per­sonal ben­e­fit but for the ben­e­fit of all. Ed­u­ca­tion beau­ti­fies the heart of a per­son to give hope to hu­man­ity that every­body can be­come bet­ter than be­fore. Ul­ti­mately, ed­u­ca­tion is the beau­ti­fi­ca­tion of the in­ner and outer fea­ture of an in­di­vid­ual.
