need for rural employement guarantee: the number of unemployed in our country is around 8 crores, and every year, it is only increasing. most of them are in the rural sector. the job opportunities that have been created in the rural sector is very less thaan the urban sector. also the rural sector has to battle with seasonal unemployement as well as gross under unemployement. the rural employement as envisioned by the govt will be the largest social sector programme in the world, worth about 4 lac. crores. but the problem is that it has already been some time since the launch of the scheme, and nothing substantial has been acheived.

I think it would be better for you do a post grad in india and go abroad as it would make the path easier.

PG eco is extreemly rigorous in the US with a whole lot of math. It depends on what you want to do in life.

The top schools would be harvard, princeton, yale, etc.
