Who is really educated?by Pawan Kumar Jha Writer. Blogger. Freelance
The meaning of EDUCATED is not associated with the academic excellence of an individual but it is actually associated with a person's COMPLETE AWARENESS of what he wants to do from his life to attain his DREAM in its physical manifestation.
That being said,
William Ford, the father of globally esteemed Ford Motor Company, was said to have possessed moderate education about automobile engineering, and so intricacy of automobile manufacturing was beyond his ability to understand and manage.
However, history remembers him as a tactful owner of Ford Motor.
Simply because he was not oblivious to his dream and necessary workforce (team of competent engineers, for instance) to have his dream of manufacturing the best automobiles in the world materialized in its materialistic appearance.
Therefore, when his business acumen was called into question by the PRESS outlets, most of them in unison questioned his competence to even think of running Ford Motor, Mr. Ford, in the court, told the lawyer, (after the latter tried to embarrass him with so many stupid questions) that -----
HE MAY NOT KNOW THE FULL EXTENT OF KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED TO MANUFACTURE THE AUTOMOBILES, BUT HE KNEW HOW TO PICK THE BEST TALENT TO HANDLE THE INTRICACY OF THE SAME EFFICIENTLY.
That's what defines EDUCATED MIND.
To have COMPLETE KNOWLEDGE AND AWARENESS of what you want from your life, and what resource it involves to bring your desire/want to its realistic manifestation is what underscores you having an EDUCATED MIND.
People are not called EDUCATED because of his abundant degrees, certificates, and scholarly achievements. For a long time, I also held this misconception and thought that being educated was all about being in the possession of best academic knowledge coupled with degrees and similar things. Glad I was wrong.
