Education

Everyone likes to be educated. Moreover, being educated is what counts in today’s life. It is difficult to survive in this competitive world without education. Unfortunately, some individual among us don’t have the fate to get education or they are not access to education. And there are multiple reasons for that, for instance, the poor are not able to proved education to their children. Also those who are physically challenged have difficulty in getting proper education facility. Especially to those children who are blind, handicapped / disabled or mentally challenged and many other such cases find it hard read and write. These were some of the cases where individuals can’t avoid it and have to live with it but in other cases the society doesn’t allow individuals to get education though they have the ability, capacity and right to acquire education. What I am talking about is the issue of females not allowed to educate themselves. We see in some communities where the daughters are considered to be the ones who stays at home and does the house works, whereas the males are provided education and other facilities. This does not happen in each and every family but in those families whose parents are uneducated, the society who believe that women are considered the weak gender, in these areas females lack education. For example, in the Transcript Wideangle  provides an example, in the tiny desert village in Rajestan, Neeraj had to work during the day and go to night school where as her brothers went to school in day. Moreover, she was intended to have early marriage, which was common in her area.

Another example provided in the film transcript Wideangle it reveals that not only poverty but the disease that a child hasn’t been directly infected nor are his/her parents, but they are still being indirectly affected by it. As mentioned in Wideangle, Joab, a boy from poor family in Kenya joins a school. Unfortunately his mother dies at the age of 28. The reason for her death was unknown, since AIDS was common in Africa, rumors spread that she died of Aids. Because of that Joab faced problems — the society started avoiding  him assuming that he was contagious to the disease plus he dropped  out of the school—“When my mother died, nobody wanted us, even as friends. Not even when we were playing with their children. They were chasing us away” (6). After a month of being on the streets he joined the school back only after being rescued by the teachers.

These kinds of issues should be thought deeply and the responsible authorities should come up with best solutions for them.
