Youth Migration:

Today, most of the youth all over the world are leaving their country's land in view of luxury and convenience and going to another place, due to which there are problems in nation building. Youth is the power of any nation and especially the energy of a great nation like India lies in the youth. In such a situation, if there is a large number of migration of youth, then it not only shows the incompetence of that nation, which cannot provide adequate resources to its youth, but it also destroys the strong foundation of the country's development.
