Subject– The curse of illiteracy.
Hello. How are you? I hope this email finds you healthy and happy. By God’s grace I am also well. For the majority of us, attending school and studying are such routine activities that we occasionally forget what a blessing we have. In some areas of our nation, children still don’t even have access to a basic education.
This has contributed to India’s high percentage of illiteracy, along with other aggravating causes. India’s high rate of illiteracy hampers the country’s economic development. A few factors contributing to illiteracy in India are poverty, a lack of high-quality education and illiteracy among women. Although there are government schools and laws stating that all children should receive a free basic education, these laws are frequently not followed.
Even in remote areas where the laws are followed, parents from low-income households put their kids to work to help them accumulate more money. An additional factor in illiteracy is a lack of social awareness. Many individuals do not realize the effects of being illiterate. They solely attribute blame to their fate and hold superstitions. Numerous additional issues in our social and political life are exacerbated by illiteracy.
As a result, there is an alarming increase in superstition, population growth, poverty, starvation, unemployment, and terrorism.Making people aware of the value of education is the only way to find a solution. Literacy among the populace is crucial if we want our nation to advance significantly. There is an awareness program this Sunday. We will be visiting slums and inviting people to enroll in education programs. Let me know if you wish to join.
