Governor’s message on International Literacy Day

Srinagar, September 7: Governor Satya Pal Malik has greeted people on the occasion of the International Literacy Day, observed every year on 8th of September.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

In a message, Governor said that this Day provides us an opportunity to reinvigorate our efforts in continuously raising standards of education, providing learning opportunities to people  through out their lives and introspect on challenges that persist in our way to achieve 100 % literacy rate.

Governor observed that the theme for this year, ‘Literacy and Multilingualism’ exhorts all of us to devote enhanced focus in adopting linguistic diversity for literacy development with a purpose not only to combat illiteracy but also to promote literacy as a tool that could empower individuals as well as whole communities. He has urged the educated people to highlight the role of education in understanding one’s rights and privileges and in improving quality of life.
