International Literacy Day

Date Written: September 9, 2017

International Literacy Day


Literacy means ability to read and write

In the darkness of ignorance it is the ray bright

It teaches now and then how to put up brave fight

It is the oar to sail life’s boat with all possible might


Literacy exhaustively means having education

It marches on knowledgeable path with erudition

Adult literacy, digital literacy, environmental literacy

These are the modern forms to establish supremacy


The literate bird has wings of fire

Fluttering them it conquers the sky entire

A literati person is a gem, like sapphire

It ignites minds, as does sacred fire


After ignorant night, breaks knowledgeable day

Let’s celebrate whole heartedly International Literacy Day

    Great poem, awareness through education not literacy, our basic structure is we lack education in every field. Cannot say the period of time it is going to take in educating the mass. Good poem
