Travelling As a Part of Education
Man wants to know the unknown and see the unseen. There is a mad desire in man’s heart that does not allow him to rest in one place for a long time. So from earliest days, he has travelled in spite of danger and difficulties. The fear of death has not been able to keep him at home.
Travelling helps us to understand the history of the past. The student who has seen the Taj Mahal with his own eyes can describe it much better than a boy who has read about it in a book of history.
The climate of mountain region or deserts can be understood only by a student who has been there for some time.
Travelling gives us firsthand knowledge of art and architecture, culture and civilization. It satisfies our curiosity, broadens our outlook and liberalizes our mind. Travelling should be encouraged to make one’s knowledge and understanding clear, complete and perfect.
