For any nation to be known as 'developed' - health, education and industrial prowess are the building blocks. As these sectors are currently skewed, we have reached an impasse.
Lack of adequate infrastructure facilities and accessibility are the stumbling blocks in the health sector. While one sees many indigenous hospitals like Shankar Netralaya making good progress, there is also a dearth of good quality government hospitals.
Boosting this sector will not only address the concerns of the Indian populace, but also rake in revenues for the country by making it a good medical tourism attraction. Similarly, the education system and its poor curriculum, lack of infrastructure or good quality faculty are in desperate need of a facelift. Lastly, the industrial sector and large infrastructure projects need a strong uplift, to move the economy of the nation at a faster pace.
