Even this challenging situation would ease
I feel the main reason for this is the disparities among the rich and the poor. The wealth is getting accumulated with the people who are rich and the poor are remaining poor. Another reason I feel is that agriculture is not getting the boost required and industrialisation is given more importance. But sincere entrepreneurs are very less. Many of them are using this as a tool to enmass their wealth.
I feel our country is mainly an agricultural based country and the backbone of the country is the farmer. But a small farmer is suffering a lot and nobody is thinking about his fate. Whatever benefits the government is giving are North reaching the really deserved cases.
The government has to change its outlook and focus should be kept on increasing the wealth of downtrodden. There should be some novel schemes to be brought in to improve the village life and urbanisation of villages is to be thought of.
WEF added that the GDP measures current production of goods and services rather than the extent to which it contributes to broad socio-economic progress as manifested in median household income, employment opportunity, economic security and quality of life. The performance of India on social parameters is not good. As per the report India slips 21 slots on Gender Gap index 2017 . India has failed to tap its human capital, ranks 103rd . India ranked 108th Global Gender Gap Index .
This raises many questions in my mind. if we are ranked below our neighbors despite progress and achievement broadcasted, can someone tell why? Is it something that we need to worry about, how much is the rich vs poor gap impacting the IDI score. If the figure is true then are we receiving selected information that we like to hear and feel better.
I hope the policy makers and the Government wakes up to this and give the public details and the plans to improve the IDI.
