I had typing as a subject in class 10. Later in 2000 when I did my medical transcription course, again I had typing as a subject along with strong emphasis on proofreading documents. Much later, when I started blogging my typing and proofreading skills helped me a lot.
When we learn something, often we feel what will be the use in the future? Well..you never know, kab kya kaam aa jaye! Education is never wasted, life skills learnt are never wasted, discipline and manners learnt are never wasted, any skill learnt at any point in time in life is never wasted..
