No nation can make real progress keeping a full half of its population in the dark. Again without education women cannot be elevated. So all out education should be imparted to the women folk so that they may come forward and work for hand in hand with men in all development programs.
Mother’s women play an important role in molding the character of their children. There is a saying in English that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. So every woman is a potential mother.
A mother exercises an undeniable influence in the formation of children’s character and in shaping their future destiny. Lives of many great men of the world show that their greatness was due to their mother’s influence. The things that they learn at home take a firm root in them. And it goes without saying that this learning they get mostly from their mother as they live under her direct supervision and constant care. If a mother fails to bring up her children properly, the mother held responsible for this failure, not the child. So it can be said that it is a mother who plays a vital role in forming the character and deciding the future of her children. From this point of view, an educated mother is an asset and it is more necessary to the educated womenfolk.
An educated husband can never have a free exchange of ideas with an ignorant wife. Life would be dull and unhappy for them. Frequent quarrels may result from such a lack of understanding. So, female education is essential from this point of view also.
All necessary steps should be taken to encourage universal female education. It is happy news for us that our government has recently declared free and compulsory education for rural girls up to S. S. C. A country can not prosper if its women are kept ignorant. We need good wives and good mothers to make our nation great.
