By naked eye we say that India is a developing country but development is generally seen in metropolitan city. By bird’s eye areas which are unreachable to government remain undeveloped or we can say that people tries to make that particular area untraceable to government.
But government changes as well as priorities change which helps to enlighten the growth of villages. Media plays a very important role in motivating the authorities such that particular village can get importance in their eyes.
Growth of a country starts with its own people. Development helps in increasing the economy of country. India is having thousands of villages which are present between Srinagar to Kanyakumari and Gujarat to Arunachal Pradesh. Village areas majorly depend on the small scale industries like fisheries, poultry or dairy farms and agriculture productivity.
The ministry for rural development has made certain rules and rights such that villagers should get equal benefits. Government of India has introduced project Bharat Nirman in collaboration with panchayat raj and state government. Bharat Nirman is a spectacular project which helps to raise the standard of living of villagers.
Issue in villages
Villages are still lacking in getting uninterrupted power supply moreover they are unable to drinking water properly. They are using water which has been stored in wells and pond, which can create a home for mosquitoes.
Drainage system is improper as a result the stagnant water causes water born diseases. Among villagers some grow vegetable and pulses while other earns by doing small jobs like carpentry, tea stalls.
Most of them are uneducated and living a very miserable life due to the absence of basic amenities. Moreover villages born live and die in debt only. Due to certain reasons villagers commit suicide. In case of agriculture due to natural calamity or personnel issue they have to lose their crop because of which they are unable to pay the loans on time.
How to influence villagers
The youth who will become the future of this country, have an important role to play. While their growing days they know the position of village which has to be eradicated so that equality will be sustained among all citizens. Central government and state government trying to figure out the ways or schemes which will become a helping hand for villagers.
Educational facilities should be provided to village in their own village. This will help them to literate themselves and can make profit in their work. Media facilities are used by government to aware them regarding new technology or natural calamity so that they can save themselves.

Villages are nation’s backbone which is necessary for the growth of a country as they provide us the basic amenities. Villagers come to cities to do works in small scale industries and large scale industries.
India is an agricultural country which controls the 44% of the country’s GDP. Farmers are introvert and never try to change themselves. They oppose and never try to accept the new methods in industries and agriculture.
They always worship the rising sun and respect rules and regulations of a village. India remains a ground for irrational thoughts and superstitions. Because of lack of scientific knowledge, people still believes in superstitions.
Cottage industries are quite popular among people living in villages. These industries help to have a surplus occupation to agriculture. Industries provide employment during the off seasons to agriculturists and help to maintain the source of income.
These industries are basket-making, mud pot making, rope making, dyeing clothes etc. Under normal conditions these industries are not good because these are unable provide basic income. As a result villagers go to towns for employment in industries.
If we want to modernize them, first we have to educate them such that we have to describe the modern technologies and invention which directly or indirectly help them in sustaining their source of income.
Continuous efforts are needed for the development of all villages. Neither thoughts nor survey are enough, strict actions are required to motivate rural community
