India's unique advantage of a large young population is widely recognised. The potential advantage of its demographic dividend for the country and the youth can be reaped provided it looks into its policies and programmes on education, health, livelihood and citizenship, with a view to empower its young population. Some of the leading educators, civil society leaders and policy advisors look into these aspects and provide insightful suggestions. The book is enriched by four case studies from Punjab, Rajsthan, Kerala and Odisha, focussing on the specific problems of the youth in these states and the approaches to resolve them. Universities and institutions teaching development economics, social relationship and political empowerment of youth will find the book very useful.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Consultations, conferences and seminars are rarely held with prior homework and also equally rarely is there any follow-up. The Ajit Foundation's Consultation on Youth Policy was exceptional on both counts. The organisers had commissioned papers by experienced and thoughtful practitioners and researchers. The resulting volume is a very useful compendium of what has been tried, how it has worked, what have been the shortcomings and why and how things can be improved. This will be very useful to both policymakers, practitioners and researchers"". - Vijay Mahajan, Founder-CEO, BASIX; Founder, PRADAN

""A deeply thoughtful study on the aspirations of youth, their ground reality and where are they heading. Case studies from Rajasthan, Odisha, Punjab, and Kerala bear out the conclusions which are based on scholarly papers written by those who know. As we face the formidable challenge of using our demographic dividend lest it becomes a demographic disaster, the book is a must read for policy makers, parents, students and academics."" - Syeda Hameed, Chairman, National Foundation of India; formerly, Member, Planning Commission

""This book, based on a dialogue with youth, is a very important and timely initiative. India is counting on its young population to deliver a "demographic dividend" but not many have bothered to take the time to actually have a conversation with young people and find out what issues are of concern to them and what their dreams are for their future. Engaging with them on values-based conversations is the need of the hour of the country. This book will be a very important addition to our very limited knowledge about young people in India."" - Nisha Agrawal, CEO, Oxfam India
