What is meant by education?

To build character of a person through imparting knowledge to him with love and discipline so that he can act for the welfare of himself, his family, his society, his nation & the world is the actual purpose of education.

The aim of education is not to impart knowledge of the principles of the subjects like physics, chemistry, biology, economics etc. only. The real education, besides imparting knowledge of different subjects to a person tells him as to how the knowledge of these subjects can help him in realizing his goal of life. In simple words, it can be said that knowledge of all these subjects without ideals is nothing more than piling up of informations.
