Villages remain valuable and critical for India's growth and development. Ignoring village will be counter-productive for the nation and urban India. Rural India needs empowerment and skilling to use the large manpower resource available with the villages. Agriculture needs reinvention and redefinition to make it more productive and for bringing more dividends. Villages need to be planned and designed with all basic amenities and services so to make them self-reliant and self-sustaining to enable them grow as inclusive human settlements. Villages offer enormous opportunities to leverage the growth provided they co-operate, collaborate and come on the same platform of thoughts and action . Most of the rural ills have genesis in the rural population which remain self-created and self-imposed. Solution are obvious with the villagers themselves. Time is ripe to empower Rural India to overcome those problems through its own innovations and actions to make India global leaders and to make urban India more effective and efficient, clean, green and sustainable.
