These illiterate people do not know how to cultivate their land through scientific methods. They are ignorant of the methods of population control. Again the percentage of male literacy is 31. 0, while that of female literacy is only 16. 0. The woman folks suffer both in the houses of the parents and the husbands. They also do not know how to take care of their children. Education for all, male crimkisamutin our country.
