Learning is a continuous process in life.  It has no ending.  An individual begins the process of learning, the moment he begins to breath.  Mere Academic reading only, not considered as learning.  In all walks of our life, we learn.

Still, there is a common notion,  that once an individual settles in a job or starts earning, he or she considers learning does not have meaning.  They should understand, that the real meaning of learning begins only after settling in the life, that is once commercially comfortable, learning continuously provides an individual eternal pleasure, besides he could please others also.  The real purpose of learning understands ourselves.  Once a man understands, the real purpose and meaning of his life, he becomes matured mind.
