First of all we have clear about the term literate.As in India more often we resemble a literate person to a person who having degree rather than who having knowledge.so our moot question is that how to equipped our citizens with knowledge.?The only answer to above question is that good quality of education using a communicative medium which is most familiar to a local person and that is its vernacular language. A person is not able to gather knowledge until or unless who is not comfortable with communicative source.so as per my perception mode of imparting education should be synchronize as per the audience.

of course..education in one's vernacular language will surely have the potential to increase the literacy rate not only in india but in other parts the world...as learners will be familiar and comfortable with the local language and can easily understand subject comprehensively

The human mind works at its fullest potential, when it is not confined under boundaries. This is true with a growing child also , at the growing stage when the child is grasping each day many new things about the world including the medium of the communication , the language of the primary education at school,if is in congruence with the things he is learning at the home... then his mind would better adapt new things and grasp them faster. He will probably be able to relate the two domains. Also it will encourage the weaker sections of the society to get their children admitted in the school , as the mental stigma of being not well versed with the medium of language would be taken away. It will also help to reduce the drop-out rates in the schools as children will not feel additional burden of learning a new language as medium of education. Hence the primary education in the Vernacular language can help in increasing the literacy rate in the country ( and surely it will when the definition of literacy is merely confined to being able to write and read one's name).However the importance of the common medium of communication can not be ignored , when it comes to interaction with the outer world.

knowledge is independent of language so education in english is important but not only way to get literate. vernacular language is used by people from childhood there understand the language is very easy so to make people understand is easy in case of vernacular language.

Education comprises the complete package of wisdom imparted to human, not only to increase his potential but to help him distinguish between right and wrong and confining this knowledge with the chains of particular language is not right .Giving a common platform would result in bringing people from different dialects close to each other . Every state in India or other countries have their own treasure of knowledge which should be shared but that would be possible only if we have a common mode of communication otherwise we would be stuck in dialect problem. People in India are not illiterate but rather ignorant of the potential they possess. If we look at earlier generation they never went to school but had tremendous wisdom and knowledge . All this wisdom can bloom among us if stop binding them to vernacular language . Its 21st century we need to shed off this thinking of keeping the knowledge chained in a particular culture . Give it a chance undoubtedly numerous people will be benefited by this especially the coming generation . Now the question would arise what about the people in far flung areas ? how will they be educated ? stop and think for sometime if we educate them in their local language how will they come out of their shells and communicate with other people who may not be knowing their local language . Wont that be injustice towards them and education . so all in all i feel give one platform, educate people in common language boosting their confidence for this competitive world . Its hard but the results are favourable for every one.

I want to correct some of data which i used in my above write-up.I wrote that there are 29 official languages but there are only 22 regional languages in India.

In a era of globalization ,there is no worth of imparting education in local language.If we only take India into account itself there are 29 officials languages and thousands of dialects.so there is no any reason to impart education in these languages . There are many reasons why i m totally against this,few of these are as follows First of all if our mode of education is confined to vernacular language only then our working zone is also limited to specific region.second one is its definitely increase regionalism and badly impact our unity.we isolate ourselves to our specific region and treat other regional guys as alien. There is no means to increase only literacy rate on paper ,we have to strive for quality of education ,which can help us to nurture more ,explore more and compete more, all these happen only when are impart education to all in a mode which is internationally recognizable. Yes i know its not a bed of rose so should have to plan well ,organize ourselves and implement effectively.
