Let us understand and discern what population of India can deliver.
As of 2016 our population is 1.324 billion which translates to 132 crores(approximately).
Adult literacy rate is 72.1%(2015), assuming this population can do basic reading and writing.
Keeping the same percentage for 2016 would translate to 95.17 crores. If we consider 10% of this population to be the cream i.e. approximately 10 crore Indians would be the think tank of this country.
India is a mouth watering market for any tech company/startup today because India offers a sizable population to operate for these companies and also provides the demographic variety. So any company, if not now probably in the coming days would first want to test it’s product here before launching it globally.
Let us look at the sectors which offer opportunities :
There are industries which give abundant opportunities upfront such as agriculture, education, FMCG, etc. The above mentioned list of industries are for an individual who wants to unlock potential with increasing population.
As a society, we are evolving from a large sized group to nuclear groups which is a necessary and more viable option in an urban mindset. It is more to do with can do approach rather than what if.
Population proliferation can be beneficent if acted upon now. That does not validate the fact that this trend must continue. There needs to be more opportunities for people who want to take risks by giving creative freedom, irrespective of results. This attitude will bring upon a change in how younger generation perceive their world within and outside themselves.
