Towards the close of  this wonderful discussion, I wish to highlight the issue of migration and youth.

 I am a native of central Himalays, where from most of the youth have migrated, leaving behind women to toil in farm lands. I wish this report addresses the plight of young women, who struggle to  earn their living under difficult circumsantces.

Some links dealing with youth migrations are given here under:
