Half of the Indian youth want to leave the country for better avenues elsewhere for they find their native country deprived of educational, employment and gender equality opportunities.
This has been revealed in a survey conducted by Hindustan Times –MaRs across the country. This is damning indictment of the “ demographic dividend” that the leaders of this country had been boasting of. Half of the Indian population of 1.2 billion is of the age group below 26.
The youth do not believe “ India is their irrefutable homeland, and will be more than happy to live elsewhere.”
The survey conclusions were summed up by the newspaper on its Front page , “ An overwhelming percentage , about three-fourths say they find this country at best “ acceptable.” Most of them rate it poor on gender equality , employment opportunity, educational opportunity and freedom enjoyed by the youth .”
According to this survey, it’s not just the national sentiment has weakened ; the concept of true , everlasting love has also taken a big beating . Just about a fifth of men and women think their current relationship will go the distance ; more than half think it will not.”
The survey has observed that , “ optimism is not running high .A high percentage of men and a higher percentage of wmen-62.8 %and 66.1%, respectively – have no hope that something good is going to happen to this country soon.” They want a superman as Prime Minister to set things right.
