Illiteracy Paragraph: Illiteracy is a curse for human beings. Poverty and superstition are the prime causes of illiteracy.
Most of the people of the villages are superstitious and they think that female education is anti-religions. Besides, poverty-stricken people engage their children for earning. So, they do not allow their children to go to school. As a result, we have got innumerable illiterate people.
As most of the farmers are illiterate, they are quite ignorant of the latest technical and don’t know new method of production. As a result agricultural output is very small. In mills or factories, illiterate and non-skilled workers can’t ensure full capacity production.
The illiterate people are to work and live under the cover of darkness known as illiteracy. They have eyes but they can’t read the black-inked letters like the bogus-boo- an imaginary creature. As a result, basic human rights like food, housing, clothing, education, health and medicine are Greek to them.
Our family planning program can’t be mobilized in degrees because of illiteracy and ignorance of the couples. Illiteracy plays a negative role on our economy. So long as illiteracy is not driven out from the society, chaos and confusion, increasing population, barbarism, break down of the existing law and order, environment pollution and leading life in an orthodox manner will continue.
To eradicate illiteracy the educated adults should take up the task of teaching the illiterate with the motto of ‘each one to teach one’. Then we will be able to eradicate illiteracy step by step.
