digital revolution

There is light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel with the digital revolution that has taken over the world. Here are ways to use it for future jobs. The Covid-19 pandemic has pushed India to the brink of crisis, with unemployment rates hitting a record 27.1% last year. Now, if we look at the data, we can see that the population hardest hit by this crisis is: the country’s youth under the age of 25 who make up more than 50% of our population.

The proportion of females in the country has seen their income fall sharply by almost two-thirds more than men, and they have lost their jobs more severely than men.

The country’s rural population, with over 65% of the total population of our country spread over 680,000 villages.

How can we help our country’s youth, women and rural population recover? What can we do to ensure that this pandemic does not accelerate and exacerbate existing divisions?

In other words, can we use this as an opportunity to empower people to break down existing inequalities and reduce them instead?
