“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for.” – Nelson Mandela
Education plays a vital role in an individual life. It helps in shaping future and earn Livelihood for one self. It is used in the contemporary world to succeed. Knowledge of Education helps in opening doors of opportunities for better prospects in career growth.
In all parts of the world, many initiatives are taken for empowering education. Such great step is taken by Indira Gandhi National Open University, India which claims to be the largest university in the world with over 4 million students. They have taken a progressive step by announcing fees exception for Transgenders in all programs offered by the university. Recently, Kochi Metro has provided employment to Transgenders, thus becoming the first government-owned company in India to formally give appointment to Transgenders.
Such progressive steps aid in providing an acceptance message to the society. It helps in spreading awareness about the power of knowledge. If we provide them with job opportunities, they need not beg or do any anti-social activity as they are generally accused of it.In spite of being a digitalized nation, girls still drop out of school in several parts of rural India due to narrow-minded thinking of people. With such a situation in India, Acceptance of Transgenders in society is still a big question. Education will provide a path to live the life with dignity and respect in India. With the help of education, Transgenders can work towards their dream, which will help them to be a part of this competitive world. Also, with the help of education, their source of income will be fixed, which will help the individual in their livelihood.
Hence, I would like to say, irrespective of gender, education of an Individual should be given more weightage in India which will help India to be an educated India.
