British rule in India has brought us from the gurukuls (a school)
of 200 B. C., the ancient Bhuddist viharas, the medieval maktabs
and madarsas to present day modern system of education. After
independence a large number of people were floundering in the
darkness of ignorance, but today 52% of the population is literate.
The current figure of literacy in Kullu is 73.36%. In the past,
Matriculation level was considered to be a sufficient qualification
for the people of the valley but today the level of education
has raised to acquiring a Master's degree.
The number of graduates from the Himachal Pradesh University's
two government colleges at Kullu district is increasing every
