What is thinking? There are at least 3 elements that takes place in the human brain . The first is the ability to receive messages , thro' the sense organs andinterpret them. These messages reach the brain in the form of nerve impulses, the eyes , the ears, taste and smelland the various sensatrions of mthe skin aeb all conveyed to the brain in c ode form
Hnce we can see that thinking is already in every mind and so the aim of education should be to guide us in what direction we should think for a successful life.

Both - the "HOW" and the "WHAT" are necessary to be taught !!
The HOW is the mind but "WHAT" is the "HEART" / "SOUL" !!
Respect to Elders / Common Good / Social Responsibilities - all come in the "What" category !!

How to think to sikhaya nahi jata. Thoughts to hotey rahatey. How wala koi nahin sikha sakta. What to think. Jaisa kahan se naukri milega? Kaisa paisa banana chayiye. Ye sab sikhana education ka aim hona chayiyeh.

The famous Sanskrit saying " Vidyai dodati binoyong " means Education gives politeness . It gives you attitude for continuous search for quest and Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.It is no longer enough to be smart -- all the technological tools in the world add meaning and value only if they enhance our core values, the deepest part of our heart. Acquiring knowledge is no guarantee of practical, useful application. Wisdom implies a mature integration of appropriate knowledge, a seasoned ability to filter the inessential from the essential.... and that's the holistic education
