Food for thought

Interviewed few ppl for jobs in tier 2/3 cities

They said they would rather work in Bangalore/Mumbai/Hyderabad than stay back in their villages

They said- they wanted to work with the best

Then ppl blame politicians for not providing jobs to Tier 2/3 cities
Then majority of the ppl from Bangalore always tell

Ultimately We want to work in Bay Area or May be HK, SG, AUS, UK, EU, NZ, Dubai etc

Reasons

Commute : I don’t want spend my life in traffic jams

Employers: who don’t let us take vacations

Infrastructure: bad roads

More 💰
Ppl working in central London

What would be nice is

- Working from home in a country side
- More time with family
- More time with nature
- I want to grow vegetables whilst I work for an investment bank

Back to country side
This mad rush from a village to city to high skilled ppl emigration etc wont stop

Main problem for #Entrepreneurs to go to a village & open up opportunities is not because of lack of govt initiatives

It’s the local ppl

who do not like/wont adapt to the idea of #entrepreneurs
The average age of country side/villages are two extremes

@HarshaKallapur in his kannada blog captures this city to village side conundrums!

In simple words - there is no UPTAKE for jobs which ain’t traditional in nature

Politicians can’t solve this cultural logjam
What do you need as an #entrepreneur to set up a company & produce jobs in a countryside or village?

- Ppl willing to stick
- Electricity
- Internet
-Localities should feel it’s benefiting them
However, An important moral & ethical issues #Entrepreneurs generally face when they venture into these areas

- What If the uptake is negative
- What if the localities misconstrue this as some kind of exploitation shop
- What if Gender related issues prop up at work place?
Most importantly biggest fear #entrepreneurs have is

What if localities don’t like the idea of milieu getting introduced to a city or international services kind of culture?

Is culture uptake the main issue then?!
But an #Entrepreneur can never stop romanticising about jobs being executed from people’s natives than forcing them to come to cities !

Seeing 1/3 time of one’s working career spent on understanding complex local culture one would wonder

was it worth leaving everything behind?
How long do we have to LIVE in the guilt that we left everything for “a bloody job”!!!

Good news is : in #DigitalTransformation world. The country side & village side need not go through a drastic cultural shift. Unlike manufacturing factories
The #IoT #DigitalTransformation #Digital job opportunities means ppl don’t have to leave their home towns.

Yet be connected with the entire world.

Yes with same salary. Power of spending increases.

Something to ponder isn’t it?
Unless as a society #entrepreneurs don’t take the jobs to villages or country sides - stress on cities will never stop

It’s not an Indian problem. It’s a global problem.

Do Governments give subsidies etc?? What can govt do?
#entrepreneurs want good
- power supply
- infrastructure
- Internet
- Banking

No local red tapes or local permissions related harassments.. making sure police to panchayats don’t poke their nose

For this localities should see the value what these #digital jobs bring with them
It’s just unimaginable that India took 70 years to bring electricity to all the villages!

Easing taxation confusion arising due to federal and central laws via GST

As an #entrepreneur I honestly feel the dependency on accountants for KYC to GST returns should reduce
In so far as #Economy is slowing down

When The economy slows down- 1.3 billion will find 1.3 billion more ways to crank up the economy..

There are plenty of job opportunities & next oil is DATA & #DigitalTransformation jobs

Ppl should look beyond govt jobs, manufacturing jobs
As a society we need to create jobs

In a digitally connected world Ideas & service opportunities are infinite.

Govt cannot ensure campus placements. We are not like communist countries

Govt should focus on
Security
Easing taxation rules
Infrastructure
Banking
Cutting red tape
Just like swacchata Abhiyan

@narendramodi should start a campaign to create #digitaltransformation jobs

The colleges are unfortunately doing just enough to make ppl get degrees but they are not tuned for producing ppl for #digital economy
This emigration life cycle from

village -> city -> developed country

Can be turned on it’s head to make it

Developed country-> city -> village

Time for #entrepreneurs & ppl to make this reverse osmosis happen..
