We should make each and every people of our country educated before we think of making our country grow and develop in any other ways to get ourselves into the list of developed nations. Education is a very important factor which can help in the development of the nation. There are many states in India where the literacy rate is not even 40%. But there is a reason to be proud of our country India, in the past ten years India has achieved some major factors which helped us to go some steps up in the list of developing nations.
India has managed to stretch its literacy rate from 12% which was during the independence of India, to 74% which is at the present. At the time of independence people were not aware of the importance of education, but now every alternate person have an enthusiasm to study and help in building the nation properly. Education is a very important factor to form an impactful society which will help in making the nation both economically and socially.
High literacy will help us to define our culture and customs in a very beautiful way and help in developing the nation altogether. There are some states in India which are known around the world for their high literacy rate which ideally means India does have the potential to provide literacy uniformly and this indicates that India as a whole will also someday lead the chart of literacy.
