Educated illiterates or Uneducated literates?

This is something very close to my heart. Very often I am left thinking about this topic when I come across people of good homes and best degrees succumbing to low standards. We all have an opinion about things however; flexibility to new ideas and situation is the key to a better world. This also happens to be the distinguishing factor between the literates and the educated.

Education for me is a never-ending process that helps me grow spiritually and mentally whereas literacy is mere talk about degree. Literates talk about things directly from the books even if it is irrelevant in today’s context whereas an educated person does not have same rule for all. Each situation and a person is a new challenge with a different approach.
