“A well formed mind is better than a well informed mind”
The preferred subject for respectable Bengali girls was Literature and humanities.
Literature shakes man out of his slumber in relation to the world of reality. Literature enable us to see the mental and moral void in our character and it given us ability to shake off our inertia both objective and subjective. The great joy that emanates from this emancipation is the soul force of any creative literature.
However with commercialization of education more and more girls are going for professional courses which do not make them good and refined persons.
