India is called a country of youth for known and multiple reasons. The country has the highest number of people in the age group of 15 to 29 the world over. This is why India is called a Young Nation. The youth of the country have brought glory to the name of India on the global map and in the entire world with their talent, creativity and dedication. The country is for the youth; the future is framed by its youngsters. The foundation of the golden India is its elite, well informed, educated, skilled, alert and capable youth. Today’s youth is alert. Today’s youth is well informed and aware and present youth is also an entrepreneur.
Indian youth are skilled in the highest and most modern and latest technology and management skills. Every year in India, about 15 lakh young and fresh engineers are graduated by 2,969 enterprising institutes. Indian engineers are in huge demand abroad.
Making a Mark Abroad
According to a report of the National Center for Science and Engineering, the number of Indian scientists and engineers is 10 lakh absorbed and employed in developed countries like America. Besides, there is an enhancement to this figure by 80 to 85 per cent every year. About 90 thousand doctors emerge out as MBBS graduates every year from 595 medical colleges in the country. In addition, every year 60 to 65 thousand students from China, Russia, Ukraine, Bangladesh, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan are foraying into India post their completion of medicine academics.

These figures certify as to how much power the Indian youth have. If we had got a favourable and enabling environment hitherto, we would have hoisted the flag of India in the world. But after 2014, youth in India are getting congenial and enterprising environment where they can dream and work on fulfilling their dreams. This will enable the world to recognise the potential of Indian youth in the field of engineering and management. An MBA is often accredited as a guarantee of success, at least when it comes to earning a lucrative pay package and upstaging to the top position in a company. As such, 40 per cent of the 6.1 crore Master’s degree holders in the world are young Indians.

The youth who used to go abroad in search of work and jobs are now staying and flourishing in India. The biggest reason for this is that the youth is getting ample opportunities in our country itself. India is moving in steps with the world in the physical and digital infrastructure. The youth of India is proficient in using latest technology. Digital revolution in fact, has ushered in India since 2014. According to the data of 2013-14, e-transactions in India were only aggregating to Rs 220 crores volume wise, which was a very small part of the e-transaction in the entire world. If we look at the figures of 2020-21, India topped transactions worth Rs. 5,554 crore through digital payment, while if we look at the figures of 2021-22, it crossed Rs 7,422 crore. It is estimated that by the year 2025, digital payments in India will be 71.7 per cent. India accounts for 40 per cent of global real-time online transactions and has toppled China in real time online transactions.
Accessible to Bharatiyas
Since 2014, when the Government was formed under the leadership of Narendra Modi as PM, the digital payment ecosystem in the country has rapidly increased. Efforts have been made to make digital payments accessible to all sections of the society. The results of this effort have been amazingly good, today the digital payment is the most popular method for Indians of all classes. Strong options like UPI, Rupay card have been created for digital payment.
The youth of the country are playing an important role in infrastructure development. Be it a multi-storeyed building, expressway or highway to be built in the country. New world records are being created in infrastructure development by our own engineers, workers. Not only this, India has become self-sufficient even in train coach manufacturing because of the youth. Vande Bharat trains are the world’s unique trains made in the country itself. A new parliament structure is being evolved. This is the biggest construction work after independence. Today we are building state-of-the-art flyovers, tunnels and airports. India has matured as self-sufficient in the field of energy development. This newly build infrastructure is helping youth procure required accessibility, to health, education, market and opportunities to dream big and achieve them.
