The contribution that Dr. Radhakrishnan has made in the field of education will surely be unforgettable. They were rich in versatility Although he was a well-known scholar, teacher, speaker, administrator, diplomat, patriot and educationist, however, working on many high positions in the latter part of his life, continued to contribute in the field of education. They believed that if properly taught, many evils of society can be erased.
Dr. Radhakrishnan used to say that mere information is not education. Although information has its own importance and information about technology in the modern era is important, however, the intellectual inclination of the person and its democratic spirit also have great importance. These things make the person a responsible citizen. The goal of education is the sense of devotion to knowledge and the tendency of continuing learning. It is a process that provides both knowledge and skills to the person and paves the way for them to be used in their life. The development of compassion, love and best practices is also the purpose of education.
He used to say that good education can not be imagined as long as the teacher is not committed and committed to education and does not believe education as a mission. He taught for many years All the properties of an ideal teacher were present in them. He said that teachers should be made up of people who are most intelligent. The teacher should not be satisfied only by teaching him properly. He should earn affection and respect of his students. Being a respected teacher does not get enough, he has to earn.
The teacher’s work is to collect, acquire and then share knowledge. He should radiate his light all around as a lamp of knowledge. Simple life should be the expression of high opinion in its own life. His knowledge should continue to flow through the Ganges. He should show ‘Gururabrah Gururvishnu Gurudev Maheshwarah / Guru Satak Parabraham Tasam Shri Guruvayamah’ with a high level of shloka. In this verse, the guru is said to be like God.

They used to say that the University is like the confluence of the Ganges-Yamuna, and the holy confluence of teachers and students. Large buildings and equipment are not as important as the great teacher. The university is not a shop to sell information, they are such places of pilgrimage, where bathing is a person’s rituals of intellect, desire and feeling and conduct. The universities are the gods of intellectual life, their soul is the discovery of knowledge. They are the fortress of culture and fortress of freedom.

Mahatma Gandhi had a great effect on the life of Dr. Radhakrishnan. In 1929, when he was at Oxford University, he wrote an article titled ‘Gandhi and Tagore’. He was published in Calcutta’s Calcutta Review. He also edited the Gandhi Abhangandan book. For this book, he received articles from peak scholars like Albert Einstein, Pearl Buck and Rabindranath Tagore.

His lectures were hn Spelling was also heard. He was so influenced by his personality and scholarship that he established a one-chair on the subject of religion and ethics at Oxford University and invited Dr. Radhakrishna to beautify him. In 1939 when he returned to Oxford from Calcutta, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya requested him to beautify the post of Vice Chancellor of Banaras Hindu University. Earlier, he expressed his inability to come to Benaras but now Malviyaji repeatedly urged him to accept his opinion. Malviyaji’s attempt was lauded all around.
