Literacy is not just the only long term solution to all the ailments the country is facing, but is also beneficial in making the country rise as a superpower in 21st century. Needless to say literacy starts right from the primary school education. While higher technical learning is desirable but a basic school education suffices for a large majority. India is lacking even in providing basic schooling to all its children. Then how can we expect to solve the problems and become the next knowledge superpower? The state government is requested to compulsorily provide at least primary schooling to all children, especially in rural areas.
