Hello everyone, I'm Asaraful Shaikh.

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

First, see how Indian villages are our strength:

Villages are the backbone of India because most of the food crops come from the villages. So literally, villages are feeding everyone.

Indian villages are repositories of India's rich cultural heritage. They are home to various art forms, crafts, music, and traditional practices that are an integral part of Indian culture.

Around 43% of the Indian population was employed in the agricultural sector as per 2020-21 data. 4. Also agriculture sector generates 33% of the GDP. That is the third highest GDP generator after the service and Industry sector.

Now, See the weakness of Indian villages:

Education and Literacy rate: Education makes people independent, and builds confidence and self-esteem, which is very important for the development of a country. In India, the Literacy rate among persons (aged 7 years and above) is about 77.7 percent. In rural areas, the literacy rate was 73.5 percent as compared to 87. 7% in urban areas.

Economic Challenges: Indian villages face significant economic challenges, including a lack of access to quality education, healthcare, and employment opportunities. This leads to poverty and underdevelopment.

Conclusion :
Indian villages play a crucial role in supporting the country's population through agricultural production, preserving cultural heritage, and being a significant source of employment and GDP generation. Uneducation is the only thing that prevents India from becoming a developing country. As I said in rural areas the education rate is low as compared to urban areas. If a good quality of education is not provided to villagers, definitely, Indian villages will definitely become resistant to the development of India.

Hello Everyone,

Today our Group discussion topic is the INDIAN VILLAGE'S OUR STRENGTH OR WEEKNESESS?

I'm talking about both aspects because of the villages are the powerful backbone of India. India has more than 70% we can say the raw material providing the villages with farming, the maximum level of farming in the villages. In the village, agriculture is the first Preference will be given to the farmer because they don't have other options so when they have developed the farming like organic farming but they will be selling in low of cost prices they don't have any Infrastructure so this is the major issue of the villages lack of infrastructure they can't increase their income in villages there are not proper internet connection and hospitality Best of educational facilities in compare to city's but the major fact is our India's population our Country in the world 2nd number so with the help of people we can develop our village like "smart village" when our village will be developed then our country will be full develop country.

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.
