People living in the cyber age expect much more from life. There were times when Kulluites were bothered just about their bread and butter. Time wasn't spent in reading books or watching television, but in the orchards taking care of the crops and rearing sheep. With passage of time knowledge spread all over and people awakened.

From mere 10 schools in 1948, Kullu now has a widespread network of 958 schools. A number of vocational institutions are there to provide job opportunities to people and a large number of computer centres striving to acquaint people with the wonders a computer can create. People go in for jobs and look out for new forms of business.

According to 2001 census literacy rate in the valley is 73.36%, out of which the number of males who are literate in the valley are 84.55% and women are 61.24%. It has been observed that in the last decade i.e. from 1991 to 2001 the growth rate in literacy has been 25.60%. There has been an increase of 19% in literacy in proportion to the growth of population, which is 69 people per square kilometre. All that can be said is that the condition has greatly improved in the past few years. The spirits of people of the valley are enlightened and their outlook has broadened. Kullu has found a place on the world map as a centre of tourist attraction and it couldn't have been possible if the people here wouldn't have realized the importance of the place they resided in. This has only been possible after people gained education.
