In one of his Mann Ki Baat episodes Mr Modi had talked about the synergy between skill development and gainful employment. Ground reality is that lots of Indians are have no means of earning their living whereas lots of people who can afford to give employment to housekeepers, drivers, electricians, plumbers, tailors, cooks, etc. (part time as well as full time); do not get long lasting employees of their choice. One can engage these people in such skill and personality devp. Ventures.
