sad but true, but we need to no so dat ....


71% or 742 million people are below 35 years of age. Indians are young

29 million people are born every year


94% drop out rate of children between kindergarten and 10+2
6%, which is our so called educated youth, go in for a regular college degree which may not be very relevant in today's context for employment generation
73% of all graduates from colleges are Arts graduates

While 95% of the world youth between 15 to 35 years of age learn a vocation, a skill or a trade, with a choice of 3000 vocational education & training programs, we in India have only identified about 171 trades so far after 57 years of Independence and hardly 2% of the population goes in for formal VET training!
We can get engineers in India but no carpenters, plumbers, drivers and other skilled personnel as per international standards! I. T. is the only exception
I.T. is only 1.5% of the world GDP. India's present share is about 3%. We need to concentrate on the balance 97% of the Economy & Enterprise and make it world class, for rapid economic growth and employment generation
300 million unemployed* and only 45 million have actually registered with employment offices with little or no hope of getting employment (our estimates)*
Of all new employment generated, 1% are Government jobs, 2% are in the 'Organized sector' and the balance 97% in the 'Unorganized sector'

Out of our 409 million workforce, 93.5% work in the unorganized sector and about 6.5% in the organized sector
1.7% of the entire population, viz. 18 million people work for the Central & State Government; another 9 million work in the 'private organized sector', total 2.6%

All the Labour Laws are made to protect, at any cost, the above 2.6% of the Indian population. Article 311 of the Indian constitution

i have just one question...
Why this progress? so that we can wake up on pills, sleep on pills, get up to see a crowd that cannot see, wake up every morning to see that the city shrinks and the poor and miserable increase? is that what your fucking progress aims? or is it the gucci, prada and barneys your eyeing?
