Value of traveling

 More than fifty years ago, traveling was dangerous and difficult because modern means of transport such as trains, buses, cars and aeroplanes were very rare. But with the advancement in the means of transport, traveling has become a means of education, and is no longer limited to books or the teachers.

Education here does not mean purely bookish knowledge. Education here is referred to in its wider sense. It means the complete understanding of the different ways in which our society and the world work. It includes the field of industry, commerce, agriculture and thousands of other skills. It is only by coming in contact with larger sections of humanity, in different parts of the world, that we can receive the right type of education.

Bookish knowledge has its own importance. It give us the basic knowledge of human activities. We learn the theoretical details. But that knowledge becomes complete by gaining practical knowledge. It is, therefore, quite essential that we move from place to place. Only traveling can help us give a practical shape to the knowledge we have obtained from books. Therefore traveling is essential for the development of intellectual, moral and even commercial aspect of our life.

Students must travel now and then to know for themselves how the world is going. Businessman also have to travel to acquire knowledge of the business techniques. It also helps them to establish contacts with their colleagues at other places. Even doctors and lawyers must travel to improve the quality of their work.
