It has been rightly remarked, “Education is regarded as the most crucial investment in hygienic, demographic profile, productivity and practically all that has a bearing on the quality of life.”
Annual HRD (Human Resources Development) report (educational status) issued by UNDP (United Nations Development Programs) state that the largest number of adult illiterates are present in India. This is something that needs to be changed. The prime question in front of every Indian is about reaching the aim of 100% literacy. This goal needs to be determined on the basis of allocation of resources. Proper and concrete steps are supposed to be taken in securing the desired goal of literacy empowerment. M. K. Gandhi has apply remarked, “Education is an all round drawing out of the best in the child and man body, mind and spirit.” This leads to a wide disparity between ‘haves’ and ‘haves not’ where ignorant people are exploited in the clutches of poverty and other social problems that need to be overcome. India is spending very less on education as compared to its south Asian counterparts. Poor implementation of policies and non-judicious uses of resources have added further woes in his problem of literacy.
Literacy is the basis of a nation’s development delay in illiteracy may lead disastrous consequence of a country can deal with this problem of illiteracy nobody can stop that country to achieve success if literacy rate increases education, health, sanitation and empowerment of villages can happen in a better way. The problem of caste difference and ill – treatment of low caste people can also stop in one go. Educate people can look for changes like commercial cropping, rational cropping, horticulture, floriculture and intensive planting of crops with other options to increase the productivity. The problem of population explosion can also be curbed by educating the masses. As an old saying goes, “Education can’t make us all leaders, but it can tell which leader to follow.”
