We grew up observing our elders underlining the importance of education from long ago. They were wholly right in putting up these statements.
       Education lays the foundation of a human career where success is assured now or later. We tend to explore our potentials through the wisdom it gives in the form of intellectual, scientific, and artistic words.
       It shapes our personality, builds our character, strengthens our interactions, and foremost enables us to be the significant yet honorable part of the society. In today’s times, there comes another parameter that defines or intensifies the persona of any human being. Where we consider education the significant element, the same way skill-set adds to the first element’s significance.
       A skill-set paves the way for the already laid foundation and makes it pretty smoother for the long marathon. A marathon where you encounter twists and turns, holes and bumps, and feel abandoned long for miraculous happenings. A skill-set you acquire would stand among these miraculous happenings and would smash these troubles while getting you out of it.
