    Deeper learning means to understand the concept and become wise so that the learner never fails at any stage of his life.
    Its neceaasary to go through the concept because so many words provide us double meaning but it depends up on the reader whether he takes it positive or negative side.
    Its very important to understand the scene and situation of the author in which he is writing about so that the reader will able to understand the actual meaning.

Never Stop Learning.
