    Its a common belief that with education, people reform. However, there are exceptions. For MCPs like Amit Nigam, even education doesn't help. God knows what he is doing in the NAP, how he is performing when it comes to society.

    I wholly agree with the comment given by Jennifer. Even though we are getting higher and higher levels of education, but our beliefs about dowry, rape victims, domestic violence, LGBTQ, Inter caste/religion marriage, casteism, gender bias, religious bias, intolerance of others views, and many other such issues have not changed.

    Our education lacks value. We see many educated becoming crooks, indulging in violence etc.

    Many a times we see uneducated are better than educated as they possess some values which come from their family and the society they live.
