VALUE OF EDUCATION
When I was studying, I wondered what is education? why do we need it? what is the importance of education? what is an education in early life?
What is education?
The act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life.
What is the importance of education?
Every human being needs oxygen to survive in the world. Education is as important as this because education gives people the knowledge and skills they require. Education is important to people of all ages and it has no limit.
Children require education for them to learn how to speak and to write. Students in higher education levels require knowledge to gain valuable information regarding what they are studying. Managers in companies require education to improve them in decision making and adapting to the changing environment. One cannot say that they do not need any further education no matter how smart they are because the quality of education is always improving.
Education in early life
Starting in about 3500 B.C., various writing systems developed in ancient civilizations around the world.
In Egypt, fully developed hieroglyphs were in use at Abydos as early as 3400 B.C. The oldest known alphabet was developed in central Egypt around 2000 B.C. from a hieroglyphic prototype. One hieroglyphic script was used on stone monuments, other cursive scripts were used for writing in ink on papyrus, a flexible, paper-like material, made from the stems of reeds that grow in marshes and beside rivers such as the River Nile. The Phoenician writing system was adapted from the Proto-Canaanite script in around the 11th century BC, which in turn borrowed ideas from Egyptian hieroglyphics. This script was adapted by the Greeks. A variant of the early Greek alphabet gave rise to the Etruscan alphabet, and its descendants, such as the Latin alphabet. Other descendants from the Greek alphabet include the Cyrillic script, used to write Russian, among others. The teacher(guru) won't come to the school or our house to teach us, we have to go to his house or gurukulam and do the work that the teacher(guru) says and also study what he teaches, it is almost like the residential school.

Experience in online classes
I wonder when this lock-down come to an end. The lock-down was due to COVID-19, it has been four months since the lock-down started. We had online classes from April to May, then we had holidays.
In the middle of May to July, we again had online classes. Then the terrific month of August came. In the previous months, we had one lesson to complete in a month, but in August we had to complete two lessons, that's why I called it a terrific month. Then the live classes started, it made us understand more. I have been spending half of the day sitting in front of the laptop and concentrating on the online classes. The online classes are new to me, in some schools they don't explain with animation or graphical representation, but in my online class, the teachers create graphical images to make us understand more, but when we compare to the normal schooling, I am missing my friends, physical activities and my teachers because of no direct interaction with them. I am so familiar with online classes because I have been seeing the online class for the past four months, so now I'm happy with online classes and don't want to go to school.
