Swami Vivekananda said that “The education which does not help the common mass of the people to equip themselves for the struggles of life which does not bring out Strength of Character, Sprit of philanthropy and the courage of lion – is it worth its name? Real education is that which enables one to stand on one’s own Legs”, it meant that education should enable one to stand on one’s own legs not only in terms of materialistic needs but by spiritual and human needs also. A combination of these two will be beneficial to mankind. So we should strive to evolve a sound education. The progress of Science and Technology is such that there is no alternative to peace because a war by Nuclear arms will annihilate the whole humanity. Hence the importance of value oriented education needs no special emphasis but rather a necessity and the rivalries arising out of anger, greed, jealousy and hatred must be replaced by love, respect, tolerance and service. Wars are fought basically in the minds of men and therefore defence of peace must also built in the minds of men. The means to do this can be provided by education.
