Indian villages are definitely our strength if appropriately utilized. I will explain to you how:

1. Companies like ZOHO have started their operations in villages and become a huge successes so what is the difference:: People like Sridhar Vembu who are from villages and well-educated wanted to start their dream companies in their villages. Yes, turning a village into a commercial business hub is hard but not impossible. Commercial means it can happen in agricultural commodity business for ex: Honey, Fish farming, and export of Agri commodities directly from village to port with no intermediaries.

2. Education may not be reaching many parts but in most rural areas today education is accessible what's happening is people are leaving for bigger cities so the government has introduced many schemes for MSME and small-scale industries. So if tailor-based education is given to the graduates of villages regarding business and Mentoring needs to happen to such graduates regarding useful schemes and loans then yes we can definitely see change.

3. AMUL started its operations in a village now we can see where its conglomerates are. I mean there are many such instances so if we utilize villages properly let me tell you the advantages:

A. Less cost of capital compared to cities.

B. Reduced Pollution in villages when compared to cities.

C. We can beat economies like china in terms of the small-scale industrial revolution.

I want to conclude by saying that if villages are utilized properly then yes they can beat urban GDP and they will really become the backbone of the country.

Hello everyone.

My name is Rajdeep Kumar.

Today, the given topic is Indian village our strength or our weakness.

In my points of view, the Indian village is our strength not our weakness, most of people lives in villages in Indian economy Indian village plays a important role our economy,

1. Our economy engaged in primary sector in comparison to two other sectors secondary and tertiary.

2. Export agriculture products world wide.

3. Increase employment in primary sector.

4. They are hard working compared to people in urban areas.

Conclusion:- in my opinion Indian village is our strength it helps to growth of GDP, but villages are not devloped in comparison to urban we need to educate people of village we need to built some instafructure in villages areas now a days India growing up day by day because of main reason Indian village if village devloped well then one day India will also became devloped country.

Thank you.

Hello Friends,

In my opinion, of course, villages are our strength as our economy is primarily based on the Agriculture sector and Agriculture along with fisheries and forestry account for about one-third of the country's GDP.

And instead of looking at our villages as weaknesses, we should see them as a field where we do have immense opportunities for development. If we succeed to bring our villages into the ongoing start-up and business boom they could prove to be the best asset to the Indian economy.

Besides this Indian villages also possess rich cultural diversity with so many customs and traditions being practised in a beautiful way.

Village are definitely our strength. But because of less support for agriculture, village people are migrating to cities. Government should provide loans and insurance for agriculture. Government should provide them chance to sell their product directly to customers and government should concern about education and basic needs to village people.

Thank You.

Indian villages definitely our strength because 90% of aggriculture is in villages. M.K. Gandhi said one word about villages that is If you target to see real Indians then just visit villages of India. But it also has weak points but nowadays it reducing. The Indian villages become our strength when we give strength to villages.

Than you.

Hello friends, I'm Nish Babar.

According to me, Indian villages are our strength as well as weakness.

First, we see how Indian villages become a strength for us:

1) Our economy engaged in primary sector compare to other two sectors like secondary & tertiary.
2)Raw material production.
3) Export agriculture products worldwide.
4) Increases employment in the primary sector.
5) Promote self-Help groups.
6) Become people self-reliant.

Now how Indian villages are a weakness of our economy-:
1) Lack of education.
2) Rural development is a major challenge facing our country.
3) Poverty.
4) Lack of awareness about government schemes so no development.
5) Infrastructure not developed.
6)Old culture and tradition so no modernization & increases superstition among people.
7) Population increases

In my view, villages are our strength and weakness. It's our strength in the way of doing agriculture, producing 90 per cent of the food our country needs. It's our weakness when coming to education and health perspective. Due to lack of education, they lack awareness about government Schemes, facilities and also the existence of superstitions. Due to this they are backward and strive hard to live life. But when the villages develop the whole nation develops from a developing country to a developed country.

Hello, friends good morning to all of you.

According to me, our villages are the strength of our country but definitely, our villages need more funds.

From our government so that basic infrastructure can be built for education and health. Because as we all know education is the most important thing in everyone's life, so our villagers should have the opportunity to get an education. I think our villages have enough government school but what our village's schools are lacking is a quality educator.

Also, there are many superstitions in our villages.

All these things vanish from our villages ones our villagers get educated. What I mean by education is not only bookish education but also moral education.

Instead of having all these lacking, our villages are still the backbone of our country's economy. Besides these, in villages, you find a true sense of peace. In villages, you will never feel lonely because people are very social in villages. Also living in villages is economical than living in cities. In villages, you find everything in very pure whether it is water or air, fruits or vegetables.

Finally, I would like to say that our villages are our strength provided the government should focus more on villages education.

Thank you.

Hi everyone,

In my opinion, villages are a weakness of our country. Because villages have no facilities like medical and education. That's why our country is a developing country not developed country. The reason behind it is our government. They do not pay attention to the village's problems.

Thank you.

According to my opinion.

The villagers in our country should always look at it with respect, because if they stop working, then within 1 year the entire Indian economy can suffocate. Some people still look at the village people with small eyes. Which is totally wrong according to me.
