There are a lot of hitches in today’s world. People are so toiled and hustled in their own work that they don’t have time to heed on the problems of the world.But there are
some people, especially the adolescents who are perturbed about the problem of the world. Many organizations are especially working to bring changes in the world and make it a better world.
Global problems affect the modern world.Change is a characteristic of the world. No place ever remain perpetual. It is a different matter, whether they change languidly or experience a rapid change. When it comes to my country “INDIA” ,since time immemorial it has promoted peace and now lives with the “LET IT BE” attitude. So, anything wrong does matter much to the residents of India whether it is related to government, corruption, poverty, population, pollution or anything else. Activists are there to lead the crowd and enlighten the society with the harms of these issues but most of the times they do not get good response and those who get are not worthy of it. Though India need several changes at present there are few important one they should be immediately tackled.
The change I would like to bring in INDIA is the removal of ILLITERACY. Illiteracy in India is a problem which has complex dimensions attached to it. It is defined as lack of sufficient education. It is mother of all the issues as it gives birth to issues like poverty, unemployment, child labour, female foeticide and many more. It is emphasized by wide gaps between the urban and rural population. Illiteracy in India is more or less concerned with different forms of disparities that exist in the country. There  are gender ,income, state, caste and other imbalances .The rate of illiteracy in women is more than that of women. This is because of the dependency of women on men for activities that require them to read and write. It is no new concept that the rich people will have better access to educational facilities as compared to the poor people. One of the main reasons for dismal literacy rates is inadequate school facilities.The  teaching staff of government schools is inefficient and unqualified .Another reason is shortage of teachers as well .
According to me, there are some steps that can pave way for higher and better literacy .First and the foremost is free education. THE RIGHT TO EDUCATION ACT has ensured that children between the age of 6-14 should receive free and compulsory education. As a result, there has been some improvement in the number of children within this age group gelling education. But the also, the children of this age group are captivated in the clutches of child labour. They sometimes do child labour willingly because of their family problems but sometimes are forced to do so. So the government should make sure that the children of this age group get compulsory education.Free education is provided in government schools whose condition is very poor and pathetic. The infrastructure is very bad. The classes do not have proper furniture and students are made to sit on floors. The teachers employed there are not well qualified.
There should be strictness that no child performs child labour. There should a regular check at under construction building by the police that no child labour is taking place. And if any person see such activity going on, he/she should immediately inform the police. Another thing that we can do to remove Illiteracy is that every literate person be it a child or a teenager or an old person should take the initiative to teach one illiterate person. If every literate teaches one illiterate than one day no one in the world will remain illiterate and illiteracy would completely vanish from the world.

  1. I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
