I occasionally wish to understand why i was sent to the school in my childhood. This practice continued and the very ‘question of why ‘brought me to the learned scholars of my time. Perhaps, the fulfillment of some conscious or unconscious desires is the foundation of my academic endeavor. The society helps me in fulfilling my desires by establishing formal educational institutions. I am not separated with society. I am a unit of society and it consists of individuals like I am. The society keeps watch my aspirations and makes necessary arrangements for the fulfillment of these aspirations The aspirations of the society and mine are, in fact, the objectives of education for which a formal and organized system of education is developed.
