I was born in a city in india.Though it is a big city areawise it still lags behind when compared to other cities in india.If I were given a chance to change one important thing about it,I would do something about the lack of opportunities for qualified professionals.
My hometown has everything that a city would need to prosper,except that there is no improvement whatsover in the employment opportunities.The city is well planned,has wide roads,has good schools and colleges,has an industrial area in its outskirts,has a vast stretch of empty but fertile land and the people are very helpful,peaceloving,hardworking and enterprising.
But inspite of all this,the city does not get much attention from the state government as it deserves.Hence,inspite of the potential the city has to offer,it is given a stepmotherly treatment whenever the annual budget is announced or the government plans to launch some project.
Thus,inspite of having brain power the city is where it was a decade ago.It is only expanding and not growing.All the qualified professionals have to move out of the city after their education to seek jobs.In this way the city loses its brain power.
So,if i had a chance to change one important thing about my hometown,I would definitely do something about the lack of opportunities for qualified professionals like information and technology consultants,doctors,therapists,architects,lawyers.
