VIVEKANAND’S CONTRIBUTION ON WOMEN EDUCATION AND ITS PRESENT RELEVANCE

PROSANTA KUMAR MONDAL

Abstract


Vivekananda said ‘‘The education which does not help the common mass of people to equip themselves for the struggle of life, which does not bring out strength of character, a spirit of philanthropy, and the courage of a lion- is it worth the name? Real education is that which enable one to stand on one’s leg. Education must provide ‘life building, man-making, character-making assimilation of idea’’. Vivekananda realized that right type of education is very importance for female in our country because once they get right type of education they will be in a position to solve their own problems. He had suggested introducing subject like sewing, nursing, culinary art etc. because he believed that women should be imparted training emphasizing skill enhancement. Then, his intention and focus was on vocational skill and training, the dynamic of which changes with time and technology and also way of living. At the time of globalization, education is the key factor for the development and advancement. Today we vividly feel the importance of women education. That’s various women universities, colleges are opening. This will also help for women empowerment and make them strong and completely independent.
