KNOWLEDGE BEGETS KNOWLEDGE
Knowledge begets knowledge in the same manner as money begets money. The first million they say is the most difficult, then lots is taken care by interests, fixed deposits, mutual funds, shares, derivatives et al, complete the picture. The asset called knowledge is allowed to fritter away, if we base ourselves in comparison to money and care, time and application of mind that goes into. New areas of money generation is also thought about, generated & added accruing cumulative gains. This pattern is not perceivable in case of knowledge, when in reality it can be done more efficiently.
In the economy we see consolidation & one success adds to the other & overall impact is so visible, evident sector after sector. Though we are moving towards a knowledge economy, yet this trend is unseen in the knowledge sector, in the quality of our faculty in professional institutions & by the practicing professional free lancers.
The adage Knowledge begets knowledge, it seems lacks social and professional acceptability. The value adds are not visible. Might be over a period of time the principal amount also goes on dwindling, unused. Money can have a planned growth as well; in knowledge it is dynamic & real time, the pace of knowledge acquisition should match its growth, based on the requirements thereof. It you outpace it, you become an intellectual; a practitioner with wisdom, very rare to find.
As we move further, the concept of knowledge as a basic capital should emerge, which will not only propel further knowledge but would become the main ingredient of our country’s growth. Just because we have not used knowledge in a productive manner does not in any way devalue the utility of knowledge. Knowledge only can transform us into a knowledge economy. Mechanical, conventional usage of knowledge is totally insufficient for the present times.
KNOWLEDGE PROPELS KNOWLEDGE, USED PROACTIVELY, IS THE DRIVER OF THE EXPONENTIAL AGE.
