Skill India or Reservation- What’s Your Take?

Skill India or Reservation- What’s Your Take?

Wisdom is in guiding the youth towards the right path. The next thing that comes to our mind is the channel to escalate the right movement. With population soaring high and opportunities stuck to limited, only well-planned action can save our youth. In the scarcity of employment, basic needs of food, shelter and clothing are not met; competing with world powers can occur only in dreams.

Training Human Power

The ‘Skill India’ campaign was launched by PM Narendra Modi in 2015 with an aim to impart skill training to 400 million Indian people by the year 2022. The step is in sync with the policies of many developed countries.

These are the various skill development schemes launched by the Indian government.

1.Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana

2.Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana

3.Financial Assistance for Skill Training of Persons with Disabilities

4.National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme

5.Craftsmen Training Scheme

6.Apprenticeship training

7.Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra

8.Skill development for minorities

9.Green Skill Development Programme

The sole aim of Skill India is to direct the nation in the right direction. Development of skills not only imbibes confidence in the candidate but also prepares him to earn respectful living. Reservation is similar to giving alms to the person in need; appears more like begging if the person at receiving end is not deserving. I want to stress on these words. Demanding reservation is like begging if the person is not worthy of the position.

  • To me, the idea of Reservation is not relevant after the point when fake identities sprout up to enjoy the benefits meant for the needy.
  • People seek reservation for being what they are for generations. Nobody wants to lag behind in the crazy race for prestigious positions.
  • Our population is so high that getting into a good educational institute or securing a dream job is quite difficult. Students prefer to grab the opportunities in other countries.
  • Imparting skill training to the youth of the country is a thoughtful step. The reservation has a few limited benefits while Skill India is aiming at long time achievements.

In my opinion, skillful training for young people is better than reserving seats for them. Inculcate the habit of earning through decent means and stop feeding them with alms of reservation.
If we want to build the nation of strength, promote talent and not the reservation.

Must have read this proverb:
β€œGive a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”
