Every 6th person in the world today is an Indian. Our country supports more than 17 of the world's population. This is one of the biggest challenges but also contains a hidden opportunity for our country. If this large manpower is converted into human capital i.e. human resources it can prove to be an asset for the country rather than a liability. Human resource means the size of the population of a country along with its efficiency, educational qualities, productivity, organisational abilities and farsightedness. India has been categorised by the Human Development Report of 2020 as a medium human- developed country. There is an urgent need to take care of our large manpower otherwise the problem of hunger, malnutrition, poverty and unemployment will multiply. These chronic problems can be tackled to some extent by providing proper health care facilities and adequate educational facilities. Unfortunately, our education system has become a factory of producing degree holders. There is a dire need to reconstruct our education system. Dr. S. Radhakrishnan said “The three things-vital dynamism, intellectual efficiency and spiritual direction together constitute the proper aim of education. Moral and spiritual training is an essential part of education.” The education we provide should help them to appreciate our cultural heritage and values to develop their values and the value system will guide them in their personal and social life and will form the foundation of the society we dream of. This paper attempts to highlight the importance of education more specifically value education in making this world a better place to live in. By enriching human resources in this way a humane world can be created where we can realise universal sisterhood and brotherhood i.e. Vashudhaiva Kutumbakam.
