Suggested answer:



Illiteracy is the state of being unable to read or write. It is a curse to a society or a nation. It is evident that the nation which is more literate is more developed. So the rate of literacy or illiteracy shows whether a nation is rich or poor. It is also a curse for the human being. Poverty and superstition are considered to be the main causes of this problem. Where most of the people are superstitious and think female education to be against religion, development is not possible there. Moreover, the poor are more interested to send their children to work than to school. As a result a larger portion of our children remain deprived of the light of education which results in lower literacy rate of the country. It causes a great harm to the socio-economic development of a country. It plays a negative role in the country’s economy. Unless it is blow out from the society, it will bring out social backwardness like overpopulation, chaos, disorder, barbarism, environment pollution, unhealthiness, diseases, sorrows and sufferings and breaking down of law and order situation. To remove illiteracy, it is very necessary to take manifold attempts by the government and implement them with sincere efforts. In this case, all the literate people have also social responsibility. The educated youths and adult should come forward to educate the poor illiterate voluntarily. Thus we may overcome this problem day by day.
