The difference between being literate and educated.I used to think that both the words have the same meaning until I googled it out. It says that being literate means to be able to just read and write which a kid starts at the age of 5 years whereas someone who is literate doesn't mean he or she is educated as he may not know the basic things in life. A simple example of the same is, at the age of 5 years one may know how to write "what to eat?" but may not be educated enough to know what and when to eat. He may not know about the calories intake, bodily requirements etc which one may learn with experience only.
I believe that one should spend his whole life continuing to educate himself - even on the simple things in life.
What's your perception about both the terms?
