Objective

    Less than half of India's children between the age of 6 and 14 go to school. A little over one-third of all children who enroll in grade one reach grade eight. At least 35 million children aged 6 - 14 years do not attend school. 53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate. (Source - Indian Statistical Organization)

    Is this the India that our great martyrs sacrificed for? Wasn't 60 years enough to educate the masses despite the Right to Primary Education? Aren't we ourselves responsible for this inglorious condition? The answer to all these questions put our heads to shame. Illiteracy has been the root cause of innumerable socio-economic plights like poverty, unemployment, crime, low self-esteem, poor health, drug addiction etc. 

    Now is the time to act upon, to vocal your voice and embrace the urgency to remedy this grievous situation, which is being a major roadblock to the development of our economy.
