Indore, Feb 03(Agencies): Low literacy in rural areas and scarcity of teachers may be a concern for the government but Kudana village here is a rare exception which raises hopes of a bright future.
    
Despite having a population of just about 5,000, the village accounts for 300 teachers who teach in Kudana as well as in the neighbouring areas.

No wonder then that the literacy rate of the village is almost 90 per cent.
    
The figures came to light when some officials,including District Magistrate Raghavendra Singh, spent a night in the village, about 50 km from here, and spoke to villagers about implementation of various government schemes, officials said.
    
The officials were collecting information on various things like availability of drinking water, electricity supply and health, they said.
   
The villagers have asked the collector to set up a high school for girls in Kudana.

The collector has directed officials to submit a proposal in this regard to the state government, the officials said.
