The sixteenth century proverb. Knowledge is power is a true today, s as it was in the past. In fact, it is knowledge that distinguishes man for animals. Man is physically weaker than many animals. He cannot run as fast as a panther. He cannot see as far as an eagle can. His sense of smell is weaker than that of a dog. He cannot carry as heavy loads as some beasts of burden do. He cannot fight tigers and hons with bare hands. Yet he has managed to become the most powerful creature on earth. Hs power comes from knowledge, not from physical strength. Man has the ability to acquire knowledge, preserve it in books and thus pass it on to the coming generations. This has given him the power to control the forces of nature, and use them for his benefit. It is , however, necessary for mankind to use this knowledge and power wisely. If we use our knowledge wisely, we can create a better and safer world than the world of today. Knowledge and power alone cannot bring happiness to mankind unfortunately, we have not used our knowledge for the benefit of entire mankind. Those persons and nations who happened to possess knowledge and power in the past used it for creating personal and national empires by conquering more people. Our knowledge has not enabled us to banish war that has plagued man from the very beginning. In reality, we have used the immense knowledge acquired in the past two or three centuries to make war more and more horrible and devastating. The present century that has seen man reaching the moon, and exploring the deep space has also seen two world wars in which millions of people were killed. It has also seen the Untied States of America dropping the most horrible weapon of war. The atomic bomb, on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. These wars were started by western nations. Who pride themselves on being the most advanced and civilized nations of the world.
