Importance of human values

Academic qualifications, be it Masters or Doctorates, may enhance the doing capabilities of an individual but never the quality of his being.

A school principal, who survived a Nazi camp, wrote, ” I am a survivor of a concentration camp. My eyes saw what no person should witness. Gas chambers built by learned engineers. Children poisoned by educated physicians. Infants killed by trained nurses. Women and babies shot and killed by high school and college graduates. So I am suspicious of education. My request is help your students to be humans. Your efforts must never produce learned monsters, skilled psychopaths, or educated maniacs. Reading, writing, spelling, history and arithmetic are only important if they serve to make our students more humane.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba always has emphasised the need or human values through the HUMAN VALUE programs for children where it works towards bringing out the true meaning of “End of Education is Character”
