Unemployment in our country is a glaring problem. Unemployment in the educated people is all the grimmer and more serious. However, the government has miserably failed on this front. All of our plans stand null and void when this stupendous problem confronts us. The lone resistors of employment exchange are full of overflowing. As a matter of fact, the authorities feel helpless before this gigantic problem which is increasing by leaps and bounds. Thousands of graduates of graduates and post graduates come out of the portals of universities. They want a job. In fact, they want an honorable way of living. They want two square of meals. How long can they be parasites of parents? They want to be self-sufficient. They wish to stand on their own feet but the answer to it is big no.
The growing problem in India:
The unskilled labor may find a place because it is cheap and easily available. But when we talk of skilled labor and educated people, we find ourselves stupefied. We cannot give this class a responsible job. This class which has acquired education. Training and technical knowledge know how at a great personal sacrifice, feels frustrated when not offered a job. It protests. It demonstrates. And it becomes rebels. Lastly, it organizes strikes and lockouts.
It is a duty of the government to solve this huge problem at earliest. Too much of unemployment youth mean open rebellion. It gives rise to terrorist activities in a state like Punjab. There the youth is totally misleading. He is given lakhs of rupees, brand new Maruti van, and a pistol. His sole job is to finish somebody’s life.
All social agencies should pool their resources and take out the youth out of the morass of unemployment. Save him from falling a prey to undesired and illegal activities. This giant problem stark us in the face. Therefore, if an early solution is not found out, I am afraid, the country will be in doom. It will be plunged into darkness. Furthermore, it will invite a social revolution of great magnitude. It will mark the country as a whole.
