According to an article Published in “The Nation” Newspaper by Mr. Inayat Atta in April 2016 “our education system has to be transformed along the lines which inculcate lifelong learning habits among the students. We need to distill the wisdom from words of Thomas Carlyle, “What we become depends on what we read after all of the professors have finished with us. The greatest university of all is a collection of books.” We need to realize that those who study only the course books or professional texts may succeed in getting good marks or a job, but those who read beyond these formalities will eventually lead more fulfilled and productive lives. The need of the hour is that both the state and society must encourage that ethos where progressive elements such as intellectual cut-and-thrust, freedom of discourse, and research and learning are encouraged. Till then goals such as progress, development, pluralism and enlightenment will remain  forlorn dreams
