Education is a lifelong process. Education is life and life is education. Education starts from womb to tomb. In the process of education, there are four main elements such as Student, Teacher, Curriculum and Educational Institution. The process of education cannot be effective without these elements. These elements are playing an important role in the process of education. Education plays an important role in our life. Not only that it is one of the keys to modernisation. It is an instrument of social change. So far as individual is concern, it helps in the modification of human behaviour. It helps in the development of a nation. The present system of education in India is an evolution of past system of education. It does not come at once.
