Few medals at the Olympics by a country of 1.4 billion is not enough, we must train rural youth to become big game changers through sports. Words of wisdom and foresight, spoken by R Venkataram, member Advisory board TRIF, former managing trustee Tata Trusts at the India Rural Colloquy

Words of wisdom, and foresight this concern for the aged the population of rural India comes from Dr Sanjiv Phansalkar, chair, TRIF, fmr program director, Tata Trusts. He was one of the three panelists at India Rural Colloquy, the one-week long Zoom sessions which started off on Sunday evening.

It certainly could not have been put together more coherently and more emphatically. Unaccounted, invisible women can never be part of any government policies. In order that India’s gender equality graph grows it is important that women are “Counted In”.

“Women must assert themselves, reclaim their spaces from men keeping in mind that those enjoying power for so long will not give in easily,” said Prof Sanjay Srivastava, Professor of Sociology, Institute of Economic growth.

We must discourage this mindset in our youth that aspires ‘only’ for government jobs as such jobs are few and when a Youngman fails to get one he loses all confidence and self labels himself a failure.
