He spoke on World Literacy Day organised by South Zone Board of Continuing Education and insisted about the importance of Literacy and Mr.M.Ramachandra Reddy appreciated the initiatives of NGOs Forum South Zone Board of Continuing Education for the development of poor and needy. In his address:Literacy Day is normally celebrated at National and International levels every year on 8th Sep. I am very happy to participate in the Literacy Day Function very grandly organized by the South Zone Board of Continuing Education at Tiruchirapalli today. Today marks the birthday of Pandit Deen DayalUpadyaya who served for uplifting people and India. It is highly appropriate that South Zone Board of Continuing Education has organized this important event on this notable day of great Upadyaya’s Birthday.
I appreciate the efforts of the Organization in recognizing reputed individuals who have selflessly served the community for long periods. I am also happy to find that several Awards in the name of one of our great Former Presidents Dr Abdul Kalam are being conferred upon distinguished individuals. This kind of recognition will serve as great encouragement to all the awardees in their works in future.
In a country like ours, development can take place easily only when all our people become literate. There are still large sections of the people- mostly in rural areas and women in the population - who are still outside literacy coverage. It is true that Governments take efforts to build schools and help primary school enrolment. That alone may not help. We all know that poverty eradication and good quality of life will be possible only through success in literacy efforts.
NGOs and all sections of the society should also participate in spreading literacy. Such participation will strengthen Governments’ efforts and will also help reduce the percentage of illiterate among the population. Let us all-in all possible ways- help spread literacy among rural population, women population and those who are not able to have any benefit of schooling. A literate nation will be a powerful nation. Help build such power in our country.
