The President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, addressed the students and faculty of Bapu Gujarat Knowledge Village and Samarpan College in Gujarat on Sunday.
In some years from now, he said, India would have the possibility of having a demographic dividend with a large young working force.
However, this opportunity could turn into a liability if we cannot provide the necessary skills and training to our youth as per requirements of the job market.
The President said that it is essential that students realize that they have an obligation towards the society to which they belong.
The objective of education is to build citizens who can contribute to the well-being of society. The responsibility of socio-economic transformation lies on the shoulders of our youth. Therefore, he said, it is essential for our youth to have a sense of equality, equity and propriety.
