      You are correct sir, at present the economy of India is increasing but the way it is increasing is also good, but the unemployment situation is under control. I think if this situation of unemployment will go down then only India will obviously become a Develped country. and thanx again Pramod sir for commenting myour views.

      Good topic and once again i admire you. India is a country of vast potential and opportunities and democratic set up with mixed economy , fertile ground for investment.

      If we keep our manufacturing growing then we will have key of global economy in our hand as China did.At present Indian youths are more inclined to IT and service related jobs but we need core sector of manufacturing to enhance so we can boast self reliant in advanced technologies.( Recently launched Indian make Cryogenic rocket, technology denied to us we made it)

      We have talent but we lost it to west, Satya Naddela of Microsoft is an example.

      To make India powerful economic bloc, then first we search our own innovative people and investment then only we will yield results.

      My last comment on your article election-2014 , my opinion, do not take it seriously.

      I am reading your other articles and will leave comment later.

      thank you
