But education is often kept on a lofty position which sometimes deteriorates the value indoor and outdoor games or any activity for that matter.
Power of being educated
Education can basically help one do anything and everything. It makes one feel vigorous. It shapes the personality of an individual. It also helps one make rational decisions and take a stand for oneself. A student in his late teens doing internships and jobs makes him feel independent and proud.

The growth and development of people is directly related to the growth of the country they live in. Educated individuals know about their rights and can stand up against social conflicts with veracity. An educated person helps in the decline of social constructs and stereotypes like racism, sexism, gender inequality etc. which gradually helps in the growth of a country. People henceforth become more aware about outdated concepts like beauty standards which we are made to believe since a very young age. Educated people influence the ones around them.
Education does not include textbook knowledge
Education is not specified to attain the knowledge of books. Everything that you come across in practical life, can be considered as a constituent part of your knowledge. Some of the examples are as follows:

- Learning art helps to expand one’s creativity.
- Doing physical activities makes our reflexes better.
- Flying kites makes one’s eyesight sharper.
- Playing Golf increases the strength of both eye and mind.

One should always be filled with music in them. Knowledge is the ultimate weapon as it is more powerful than the one rich and tough. The only that cannot be bought with power and money is knowledge.
