The Role of Students in Removing Illiteracy
Illiteracy is a blot on the face of independent India. Illiteracy in the twenty-first century exemplifies the failure of India in reaching to its masses. It’s a shame that even now about thirty-five percent of India’s population is illiterate. Education makes a person enlightened and creates conditions for his/her overall development and prosperity. A literate person is like a treasure for the society for he/she can better the society by his/her wisdom and intellect, whereas illiteracy is a curse that hinders the overall development and progress of society.
Therefore, the removal of illiteracy is a must and India should focus on achieving total literacy. Students can play an important role in achieving this goal. Since they are in the process of receiving education themselves, they are the best persons to achieve the goal of attaining total literacy. They should carry the lamp of knowledge by organizing events such as ‘EACH ONE, TEACH ONE’. Every student must resolve to teach at least two illiterate persons in a year during their vacations. The government should render full support to students in terms of infrastructure in their contribution to the Indian Literacy Campaign. If we all try to achieve this goal, then that day is not far when India will join the league of countries that have attained hundred-percent literacy.
