It is a huge mistake to refer to such a man as an illiterate. Most of us the so-called educated men and women of the world today,
Not so many people know and not so many people understand why because the few who know do not share and the few who understand do not explain and so the story continues but in silent dreams, dreams full of several "whats" and "hows".
