    While we bragg about how some elites of our society are doing so well in US.It does not change the fact that the entire education system in India is in turmoil.An average Indian cannot do basic algebra or write a single line correctly which has been proven time and again by various international standardized tests.Schools in villages do not even have basic infrastructure and teachers remain largely absent and those who do come are of extreme poor quality.Last month i read in the news that thousands of teachers themselves could not even pass class V level subjects.

    Higher education in India is totally non existent. Hilariously i leaned more about my engineering topics in one year of GATE preparation than in 4 years of engineering.There is hardly any research going even in elite institutions and whatever that is happening is of low quality.Thesis copying/stealing is rampant amongst PhD pursuers.No doubt why only 6 Indians have got the noble,half of whom as foreign citizens.

    And those who do get out of this shamble of education system face a new challenge of joblessness.Apparently India a country of young people has no job for it's youngsters.Apart from some availability in IT and Banking there is hardly any job in other sectors.According to research conducted by various international agencies close to 90% of Indian graduates are unemployable.
    This extraordinary focus on service sectors like I.T has lead to transformation of Indian society into a plutocratic society rather than an egalitarian one.And when you have a country with millions and millions of jobless youngsters, you can very well imagine what would happen next.


    India's superior economic growth of last decade has hardly benefited the impoverished masses. The statistics that defines India closely resonates that of a failed states than that of an emerging power.So without a trickle down effect 9% growth means nothing.
    India a country of 1.2 billion people produces an economy smaller than 30 million inhabited Canada speaks volumes on India's economic incompetence and it's geopolitical irrelevance.


    While we celebrate that poverty has fallen to 22%,can any one imagine living in 20-30 rupees a day in this era where prices of average vegetables has crossed over 50 Rs.Even in the poorest parts of the country living under 100 Rupees a day is a massive challenge considering that in today's age one needs education,healthcare,clothing and a roof over head and not just food.Majority of India's population live in Rural areas where living standards are primitive and with a cultural mindset of neanderthals.It's disgraceful than in this era of advance science people live in such undignified condition.


    Where was India growing ? If it was growing as stated in various media outlets why is it not visible ?

    India is growing and the lifes of majority of Indians have changed in many ways but here i am not saying its up to the full extent . During the time of independence we were having limited sources and even the educated numbers were way less nor we were having a single millionaire from the ordinary masses , there was no electricity and majority of them just use to dream about going to school but now education and awareness is there more in our masses . We have uplifted ourselves and we can do more and for this we need some more time .

    These are invalid arguments. Does it take 60 year to invest in health and education?Indian people are not demanding obamacare or any life insurance or banking service and all those 21st century things.They are demanding basics required to for a human to live a dignified life and it's disgraceful that the country fails to give that even after 60 years.

    Indian government has mastered the art of cutting it's own leg because of which the entire country is suffering.

    What kind of explanation can you give when even the likes of Bangladesh,Bhutan and Nepal are doing better than India ?

    In just 20 years China has transformed it's major cities from an urban fishing village to cosmopolitan cities where as India has turned it's cities from small slums to a massive slums.

    You can't go on giving explanations for sheer incompetence.

    First thing , Cold war has kept not only Indians but all the other nations backward and this is the reason that second and third world countries were not able to develop themselves and it was only after 1992 that India has started to change under P V Narishma Rao and from that time till now many things have been achieved by the Indian nation . Only in India , people can get cheaper surgeries and even the Government has introduced so many schemes for the welfare of the people and on that even private hospitals are not behind .and even the cost of medicine is not much and here only Indians are not only uplifting themselves but even many other nations in nominal prices.

    India started to reforms after 1992 and only after 2000 , things started to come out . 80% of Indian villages are having electricity now and just ask to those people what is means when they use to study under street lights .
