65% of Indian population is below the age of 35, making us one of the most potent countries with room for exponential growth. Even with the availability of such potent working members, we are not growing as fast as we should. Reason? Lack of exposure to high-quality education and lack of hunger for success.
Those who have high-quality education at their disposal lack the hunger for learning while those who do have curious minds often don’t have means to learn. This creates a wide gap in the demand and supply of quality education as well as a substantial inequality of resources available to various groups of people.
Moreover, with the overwhelming growth and availability of entertainment content on OTT platforms, most of our youth is spending hours and hours of their precious time on non-productive content.
Amidst the pandemic, the OTT sector in our country witnessed a 30% rise in the number of paid subscribers, from 22.2 million to 29.0 million
Indians spent more than 4600 crore minutes a day on OTT platforms in March 2020 and this numbers skyrocketed to more than 6000 crore minutes in lockdown period.
These numbers clearly point out where most of our youth’s time is spent currently and speaks a lot about a habit that needs to be changed.
