Dr. Kodur Venkatesh, pp. 56, Rs. 75, Niruta Publications
A Literate Nation speaks of its Culture and Prosperity. It is a pity that the evil of illiteracy in our country has lead to lack of social awareness among our people leading to their exploitation by most sections of our society. I believe in the concept of `each one teach one` and it takes less than six months to turn an illiterate into a literate who can read and write. More than Adult illiteracy the Child illiteracy could pose a very difficult situation for the society and its overall health. We are a country with extreme diversity with scores of castes, languages and dialects and Literacy would be the only medium to unite the country and appraise every citizen about what is happening around him.
I have seen Dr. Venkatesh, the author of this book working to set up various Adult Literacy Centres, in remote centres, needs to be emulated and supported. I am sure this book brought out by Dr. Venkatesh would help every agency involved in eradicating illiteracy, raise their hopes and meet the challenge.
