India’s Opportunities and Challenges

India is the world’s second most populous country, and the largest democracy. In a series of video commentaries starting today, I’ll take a look at challenges India is facing both internally and externally. Today, the gap between the people we have and equipping them with the skills they need to earn livelihoods to be productive.

Next week and thereafter, I’ll take a look at education; relations with Pakistan and the U.S.; and India’s nuclear policy.
