Young Indians going to lead the world

So , Young Indians are not going to lead only India . Henceforth they are considered to be leading the world too . Why ? While the world grows older ,the India is growing younger . The aging population of US , Japan and china will create a shortage of skilled manpower . The shortages will be 1.7 crore for US , 1 crore for China and 90 lacs for Japan. This shortage is about to happen in 2020 .On the same time , India will have a surplus workforce of 4.7 crore . It seems that, we are going to reach our Past president’s Dr. Abdul Kalam’s vision of India becoming a developed country within 2020 , in the scheduled time.

However , this are projection about what would be happening . In addition , to take the advantage, there needs to be a lot of planning done. Some bit of these, has started also with the Budget of Rs 300 crore for skill development alone, during the annual budget 2008-09 .

A total sum of 22,800 crore also has been devoted to skill development in the 11 the Five year plan period by planning commission of India.

There is projection , there is plan ? … Is there executions also ?

This is where the education organizations around India , has to play a pivotal role on really bringing Indian skilled world force in such a manner , that they can create the future of world .

Isn’t that what our ancient gurukul’s use to do ? Creating people that could change the future of nation and world ? Are our education organization of present times, has that capability to play this role ?
