Another run at motivating America? I think more effort on ethics and humanity would be important. What is the point of 300 million Indian scholars on computing and business? They have the same corrupt oligarchy as most of the world is headed towards including the US. The complexity of the real problems facing our planet won't be solved by underlying models based on greed and feeding the 'economic' machine the wealthy love so much.


The article came out just as the Prime Minister of India, Mr. Manmohan Singh, announced a Rs.2.75 Trillion investment in education, a growth of 500% in appropriations. This is on top of the current infrastructure which is poised to graduate nearly 400,000 engineers in 2009.

Here is the URL:

Here is the first line "India is expected to account for a fourth of the world's total skilled workforce by 2020 and the central government is according top priority to higher education, allocating Rs.275,000 crore (Rs.2.75 trillion) to the sector, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said here Tuesday." and it continues further "'We have significantly increased allocation to the education sector with a five fold increase to an unprecedented Rs.275,000 crore,(Rs.2.75 trillion)' he said while addressing faculty and students at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Guwahati." Five fold increase? A country that already produces 6 times the number of engineers and 10 times the number of computer programmers as the US to increase the investment in education by 500%? The investment will also be more broad based "Approval had already been granted for eight new IITs, seven Indian Institutes of Management, 16 central universities, 14 world class universities, five Indian Institutes of Science, 10 new National Institutes of Technologie, 20 Information Technology Institutes, and 1,000 polytechnics, he added." Admittedly, much of this newly educated workforce will be needed to support a projected population of 1.5 billion by 2020. At this rate, the proportion of the population engaged in high paying occupations will be way out of proportion compared to the US. Finally, Mr. Singh declared "This big and unique opportunity for India will come from an education revolution that we must undertake as our most important national endeavour.'"

Why is this country known for results orientation so inept when it comes to producing world class graduates? When you find out the answer, please let the establishment know? We need results. And fast.


The world is now looking at India as the nation of the future. More significantly, India is well on its way to emerging as a first-world economy in the fields of information technology (IT), biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and the automotive sector, pushing the thrust now on to the retail sector to facilitate the creation of a new surging modern India.

The real estate boom in India will not only propel the economy to sustainable heights, but will also generate employment for several millions. It is strongly expected that the growing Indian economy and growing opportunities will ensure that the foundation is laid for India's tryst with destiny and for it to be fully integrated into the world economy.For more view-realtydigest.blogspot.com
