Definition of literacy has been changed by the advancement of the contemporary era. Everything has changed more rapidly including the process of acquiring and applying the knowledge. In ancient times, people often believed the same things their ancestors believed because at that time knowledge was changing at a slow pace. Today learning new skills became necessary due to innovations and change in technology. One must adapt themselves according to the changing environment. So I believe that one must not only know how to read and write but also need to know how to learn, unlearn, and relearn.

Competition in today’s market is getting tougher. Reluctant people face more problems to unlearn and relearn. For instance, internet friendly people get a job very easily because of today’s need in every workplace. It is difficult for those who don’t use the internet. There is another example, a computer operating system started with Pentium & recently the latest update released which is “Windows 10”. So one must unlearn Pentium 2 & 3 and relearn new windows to stay updated with the modern technology.

Only reading and learning cannot solve all issues. A person has a capability to tackle various situations in the society at every stage of life. A person should stay ready to solve these problems which are possible due to practical knowledge of unlearning & relearning.

In nutshell, learning is simply a process of acquiring knowledge and a person without knowledge is illiterate. In the 21st century, those open to learn, unlearn and relearn will be the new literates.
