PRLog - Feb. 25, 2012 - PILANI, India -- Transformation of the individual by education is precursor to social and economic transformation of society at large. With more than 50% of current population below the age of 25 and 72% of the population living in over 600 thousand villages no one has doubt that the real potential of India lies in its rural youth who are seen not only as a great hope but blessings for the global future. If India today gets it right by empowering the youth with the right education, it will benefit from its demographic dividend with a young, productive workforce that will propel economic growth for decades.
