  1. 1. 400 million people in India still live in poverty –this makes 1/3rd of the poor’s in the world Many of those who have recently escaped poverty (53 million people between 2005-10 alone) are still highly vulnerable to falling back into it. While India’s average annual per capita income was $1,410 in 2011–placing it among the poorest of the world’s middle-income countries– it was just $436 in Uttar Pradesh (which has more people than Brazil) and only $294 in Bihar, one of India’s poorest states A pictorial graphic released by various United Nations agencies on the occasion of International Literacy Day accords India the dubious distinction of having the maximum number of illiterate adults in the world-a staggering 287 million, a number that is nearly four times the population of France. India has the second highest unemployment rate after South Africa. Countries such as Pakistan, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, and Sri Lanka have a lower unemployment rate compared to India.
  2. 2. These are itself the reasons to various other problems and are highly interconnected as illiteracy leads to unemployment and finally drives the fatal force in the world-poverty. In on way illiteracy is the mother of all problems in India
  3. 3. But statistics , facts and reasons cannot bring smiles on those 400 million faces , so how can we do that?
  4. 4. Volunteer     Teaching has turned to be a rare profession these days and also half of the illiterate masses do not have money for a formal school , if every youth of India volunteer for an hour or two even in a week illiteracy will be an unknown word. One more problem in India is that people do not understand the importance of education , as a volunteer , on can spread awareness. Help the poor in setting up small scale enterprises for self-earning. Now , what part can government play is that they can make social service a part of curriculum of the students.
  5. 5. Revolutionize education    The education system in India was built to train Indians to serve as clerks for the British government, this system of education has to be revolutionized to the purpose of independent India. Statistics say though there is large unemployment in India still the industrial sector lacks in skilled manpower, why such a gap? We need a more industrial friendly and updated education system, that works on personality and skill development rather than rote learning.There is no point in teaching a bank P.O. Science and literature when all his work is to count money , deal with clients and update records, he should rather be taught better communication skills.
  6. 6. Promotion of SSIs   According to the statistics more than 40% of companies income come from SSIs,they not only serve to increase the gross domestic product of the country ,they also help the country to get rid of poverty,but still all the economic policies of the government are in favour of big enterprises. The government should focus on these small establisment,providing them loans at low interest rate ,reducing tax rates for such companies etc.
  7. 7. Basic Education necessary   Though Indian government is focusing a lot on adult and primary education , yet after all these efforts ,there has been no much changes in the country , then what is to be done? The problem that the policy makers do not understand is that most of the children do not go for higher education in India, nor do adults study for years , nor do they need to read all the poems of Greek and Roman mythology , what they need is basic education –to read and write ,know the laws and regulations of the country, etiquettes, their rights ,their duties ,the policies of the government and few basic skills to earn his living ,so special curriculum should be prepared for all seeking primary education
  8. 8. Reduce the income gap    The rich is becoming richer and the poor becomes poorer. Our country can learn from Finland ,there every man pays a tax according to his income and in return all are entitled to basic facilities for free, where even fines are charged according to the income of a person. Nepotism and favourism should be done with.
  9. 9. Traditonal sources of income   Every family has some skills that they get from their ancestors ,many families come to the verge of poverty when those skills are no longer valued. Government should promote such skills ,provide subsidies on traditional handicraft and other ancestral things and also helping them to improve their technology side by side so that they can stand the test of time.
