Speech on Literacy and Its Importance
Respected Mr. President and my dear fellows, today I am on this stage to share my thoughts with you. There is one word which instigates many of us almost all the time. That is “curiosity” curiosity to know the unknown, curiosity to discover that is uncovered yet, curiosity to share what you have learned. This curiosity takes human being from grounds to sky. This curiosity distinguishes us from all other creatures and makes us superior. Seeking knowledge satisfies this curiosity. What we do when we get knowledge? We satisfy our mind which is full of questions. The power of learning, reading and writing is the ultimate weapon of human being and is the only way to survive in this global village and to be in the race of diversity. A single pen can do that a sword cannot do. Knowledge is like a river and anyone can satisfy the thirst of learning from it. If we talk about the society today then it can be stated that success is in the hands of an educated person only.
Lack of education not only takes you away from the success and from the educated community of society but also through you in the darkness of superstitions and takes you away from the reality and not only this but also affect your social, personal life. People start believing unrealistic things and then act accordingly without analyzing what is wrong and what is right. Education tells you the difference between the wrong and the right. Education should be given regardless of gender. One more draw back of the society is that it is believed that education is confined to male gender. No, it is not. Once a wise man said, that only educated mothers can raise an educated family, if the mother is ill literate that their whole family is going to suffer the darker side. There are many societies working for women education and creating awareness in the society especially in the ruler areas where women are still being treated in inhumane way. On this international literacy day I would like to spread the awareness of getting education and to see the right path for you and for your upcoming generation. Thank you so much
