In the 21 century, as India enters the age of computer, we would be able to solve various problems as a result of which India would appear for more glorious than the present state.
After Independence India has been on the move politically towards stability, socio-economic progress, scientific and cultural achievements. The U.N.O also wanted every country to achieve the goal of “Health for All” by the beginning of 21st century.
A number of problems of india, expected to be rooted out speedily after independence, have lifted their ugly heads even after 60 years of independence. Regionalism, separatism, terrorism are on the rise with a fiercing mood.
Unemployment ,population explosion, illiteracy, poverty, health and housing problems appear as the stumbling blocks that we are facing now-a-days. Above all, we bear the heavy burden of population and the sense of cultivating moral values has been eroded. It is a shame for us.
To provide for the basic necessities of such a vast population remains a difficult task, and there is no sign that the problem of food cloths and shelter will be solved by the start of the century. So a large section of the people will enter into the new century with poverty as their bosom friend. Another of her major problems is illiteracy. Since India has not succeeded in making education free for boys and girls ups the age of fourteen, it is unlikely that she will be able to arrest her trend of illiteracy.
Another notable problem is the condition of health of her people. So there is no chance of the fulfillment of the hope of “Health for All” programme even after passing some years of the 21st century. Scientists and technically skilled persons reflected the idea of welfare through proper distribution system. Then the poor will find themselves in the main stream and our policy on globalization and open mark economy. Active participation in the group of nations will open up new issues with the new Indian spirit in a body for advancement and set reliance. Though the Government announces various measures to tackle these problems there is no indication that the century will see proper implementation of those.
India is fast changing. The rapid growth in the field of Information Technology has opened up new avenues of employment.
The present age is the age of technology, electronics and internet. There is presence of technology in every spheres of life of Indians. We cannot spend a day without our mobile phones.
There there is surge in e-commerce marketplaces. People can buy goods from the comfort of their homes. These e-commerce companies are competing with the local business. On one hand, these online companies are sources of employment for many people. On the other, due to stiff competition, the local businesses are finding it very hard to grow their business.
Illiteracy is still a major problem for India. With the introduction of technology, most businesses are looking for educated people with some skill of computer and related technology. Illiterate people are experiencing difficulty in getting respectable employment.
Youth population should also consider joining Vocational Training courses. These courses are designed to develop skill for a specific trade. In the present age of specialization, there is surge in demand for skilled people.
Lets hope the 21st century India will solve the various prevailing problems.
