Education is an important factor in a person's life. Especially for women it is a must. It is very much essential for women to be literate and to be able to read and write in order to be able to live life with dignity and self-esteem. No matter if we have stepped into the 21st century then also still a woman is treated with contempt and dis-respect. Even today she is considered a chattel something which is there for the enjoyment of men and hence it becomes very necessary for women to educate themselves in order to survive and fight all the obstacles that she has to face.

"Literacy is pivotal to human progress. All agree that the single most important key to development and to poverty alleviation is education. Adult education, literacy and lifelong learning must be combined with the fundamental recognition that education of women and girls is central to development". World Bank President, James D. Wolfensohn, while speaking on the occasion of the World Literacy Day - September 8 , 1999.

Did you know that India still has about 300 million illiterates out of a global illiterate population of around 1 billion. This means that around 1/3rd of the world's illiterates live in India! That is shameful. India is the second most populated country in the world. We have the infrastructure and the resources. We have given this world so many great scientist and great personalities then it is shameful for us to be rated so low as far as the literacy level of the world is concerned. Why is it so? Has any one ever wondered?

Education is important not only for ensuring that you make a great career, but also for inculcating accepted values and principles in your life so that you can lead your life as a person and you learn to respect and love fellow humans. Respect for elders and love for your young ones, knowing about your country and your life, knowing about the mystical world of science is all possible only if education is a reality in your life. As a person you have to see that you help other also acquire this great power. Try to contribute.

Thus if you want to see your country progress and be the most successful country in the world you have to be educated and also try to educate people. Make the best use of the facilities given to you and pass on the legacy to the coming generation - that it is education and nothing but education that will pave the way for a better future for mankind. Make it a point to educate at least 12 illiterate persons in a year and thus contribute towards eradicating illiteracy from our country. Women who have free time should devote their time in educating illiterate persons and you can begin by teaching your maidservant to read and write. Tell her; enlighten her why it is so important to learn to read and write and advice her to send her children to school if still she hasn't. This is your chance……so don't waste it. Do something for your country. Help India eradicate illiteracy and strive towards success.
