Despite being full of energy and ideas, the youth lack avenues to channelize their energies and ideas into constructive activities.This ‘closing of minds’ has been harnessed by politico-religious groups with distorted agendas; Role of youth in the age group of 20 to 30 during 2002 mass violence in Gujarat is an exemplary testimony of that.
One step forward for the development is one step backward for the urban poor and marginalized communities in the city. The infrastructure development in urban ignores the concerns of marginalized population in terms of housing; water, electricity, roads, health and education services and public transport facilities.
