International Literacy Day is observed on September 8 every year. After the pandemic, as the medium of education changed to online, learning itself became a matter of privilege. As a result, the theme of UNESCO is “Literacy for a human-centred recovery: Narrowing the digital divide.”

Literacy plays a huge role in the development of a nation. It makes us aware of ourselves, and the world around us. With several initiatives, the literacy rate in India has increased in the past decade. As per the 2019 census, the literacy rate in India stands at 69.1 percent.

On this occasion, CitySpidey captured a few glimpses of learning in progress:
