Shaping India’s future


Vinay Nagaraju

Came across this short essay about shaping India’s future. The essay was featured in an idea to shape the country’s future and the best way to go about it. Here is a perspective in the front of Entrepreneurship and this comes to light in the background of the union budget setting aside a considerable sum for Entrepreneurial ventures and self sustenance.

We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

— Franklin D. Roosevelt (Roosevelt Quotes)

Coming from a country where population is highlighted as one of the strongest challenges, I realize it is one of the greatest resources that the country has – Human Capital. It is often dubbed that a country with a huge population cannot survive strong since the resource allocation is challenged.

Although it is true on the onset, it does offer a strong perspective to move ahead. One of the strongest challenges the country is facing is to provide sufficient opportunities for the existing Human resources which has resulted in a masked underemployment where limitations exist for the complete development of an individual. If we are able to remove these hindrances, it realizes increased opportunities which in turn realize a stronger resource with greater capacities which in turn results in a huge spike in the developmental front.

The idea is to create a self sustaining system through entrepreneurship, creating more opportunities, widening the scale of education and vocational trainings which help people earn a better livelihood. A great challenge has been resource retention; one way to avoid it can be to keep widening the opportunities and increase the impact of each person on the society. The trickledown effect is bound to work creating a well rounded economy which in turn extends as an enhanced quality of life.
