Poverty is one of the most attention-able situations of any country. Poverty means living the life below the poverty line. If a person is having difficulties in survival and is struggling for the fulfillment of the basic needs (food, water and shelter) then he/she is said to be facing the situation called poverty. Poverty is a shameful situation for any independent country whether the country is industrial or non-industrial.
BHUTAN is the worst effected country of the world having difficulties even for survival. Such countries have to depend on other nations for the survival.
Talking about INDIA, No doubt, INDIA is developing day by day and joining hands with the most economical and industrial countries but it is also not left behind for facing such a situation.
After getting Independence, poverty is obvious but after 60 years of independence, how one can still imagine the poverty and lack of resources.
The main cause of poverty is illiteracy. INDIA is a rural country and villages are not yet developed in India; especially women are unable to get education. Second main cause of poverty is the population which is increasing day by day and India ranks on second number in this line and I would say that the population is the major problem and the root cause for any nation to be poor. China has world’s highest population but they are now putting a check on the growing population and also, their land area is also very huge as compared to India. In a poor nation, middle class is also unable to fulfill all their requirements as compared to high society.
UNEMPLOYMENT also paved the way for poverty. Although all the political parties and even the government promise to provide employment to all but still unemployment virus is prevailing in our nation. Once, Indira Gandhi government gave slogan “Garibi Hataoo” (Remove Poverty) but it did not help anyone. Congress party always promise to provide 1 crore jobs every year but it does not work at all.
Poverty can be removed by awareness so that they can themselves make a check on increasing population. The only thing which is required is to keep a check on increasing births in the nation. People must know the value of education and political parties must be honest so that the future of India can be secured and INDIA must join hands with the developed and modern industrial countries.
