More Than One Billion Indians: a Gigantic Problem or a Sea of Opportunities
If the 2011 census is to be believed the current population of India is around 1. 21 trillion plus or minus a few millions and we all get to which side the scale is going to tip. The Indian population is varied non only on the lines of religion, region but also on the terra firma of thought process. While on one draw we are face up the problem of land acquisition from the poorest of poor farmers, on the new(prenominal) hand luxury car maker brand Mercedes has shown a sales offset of 67 percent.The huge population of India provides a large service firmament which plays a crucial role in developing the economy of a nation. Moreover, 30% of the population is between the ages of 10-24 years which clearly shows the amount of untapped energy that India has. If used and guides correctly this can be used to kick upstairs our industrial and structural sectors.The brain drain that India has suffered since last two decades clearly shows that Indians form huge potential and they are j ust looking for the the right way niche to develop themselves. Indians have raised themselves from all walks of life and do a mark in fields from astronomy to yoga. On the other hand, the resources that the country has are limited and therefore a burgeoning population restricts the per capita availability. We have seen an increase in the crime rate due to the unavailability of scour the most basic amenities.The government has clearly hit the mark by creating employment opportunities for the rural masses through programs such as NREGA, NRLM, etc. But even creating such employment opportunities costs the government a lot of money and resources. The glass can be half put down or half full. We may say we have more than a billion mouths to feed but we forget that we also have more than 2 billion hands to make such a big task possible.
