What are the priorities before India?
What is the way out?
• For this, India need to work simultaneously on both
Quantity and Quality
in the process of Massive and Intense expansion of base
of Higher education embedded with research as an
essential factor. But, how???
• That itself is a challenge… Think +ve
But India is heading towards it.

“Agriculture can be turned as driving force in
………….But we need to know its shortcomings
and think to address them
1. Slow agricultural growth where two-thirds of India’s people depend on rural
employment for a living.
2. Current agricultural practices are neither economically profitable nor environmentally
3. India's yields for many agricultural commodities are 30% to 50% than the maximum
4. Poorly maintained irrigation systems and lower efficiency in using available water
resources. Scientific cultivation is not happening
5. Inertia of Indian agriculturists for adoption of modern technology
To Turn Agriculture as a driving force in
We need to know …realities and work on them
6. Lack of good extension services and marketing knowledge
7. Poor roads, market infrastructure, middle man’s exploitation, excessive
8. No match between Growth in agriculture produce and population
9. The low productivity and lack of efficiency due to large agricultural
10. Inefficient Public Distribution System adds inflation and increases burden on
SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES
What we do after comeing back from
•Youth should take part in making NGOs for the
development of agriculture.
•Government should develop agricultural industry
in villages for better employment chances for
Rural Youth and Agric production
•Youth should fully concentrate on their study.
•Highly educated peoples should stay in their
villages and should not migrate to cities.
•Government promote positive activities so that youth should not
involve in bad activities.
•Rural youth should help their parents in agricultural activities and take
interest in getting more agricultural knowledge
•Government should start still more various developmental
programmes for the betterment of Rural Youth.
•Technical and vocational agri institutes should be established in
villages for the training of Rural Youth.
•There should be good transport facilities for Youth so they go easily to
educational/vocational institutes which are far from villages
Let us have small talk,
• smart, confident and focused
• which we can “Walk the Talk”
