Illiteracy means not to be able to read and write. Illiteracy is similar to darkness. No nation, no country and no society can progress without education. Illiteracy is a curse which hampers even destroys the developed nation. It is the main drawback that causes the destruction of the morality as well as personality. Only for illiteracy and lack of proper education chaotic situation in the society is created. To build up a developed, civilized and a prosperous nation eradication is a crying need. No development is ensured as far as it is not removed from the society and is spread the light of education throughout the people because education is the backbone of a nation. Illiteracy is of course the gigantic problem of the country and it is also impossible to eradicate from the country by the government alone. Educated people should also come forward to solve this problem in all. Government should take necessary steps to overcome this great and mammoth problem otherwise it will be more dangerous day by day. Government should undertake some important projects to spread the light of education through the society. In this case men and women should be provided proper and real education so that all types of chaos can be removed from the society and they can be independent on themselves. Because of only illiteracy and lack of proper education a vast amount of people are unemployed and burden for the country. In this case up-to high school education should be made compulsory for all. We should Al-together attempt and work for solving this problem to make an enlightened society.
