A lot has been said about India’s demographic profile in terms of youth population.
As facts go the India’s Census 2011, Youth (15-24 years) in India constitutes one-fifth (19.1%) of India’s total population.
A report by UN in 2014 and a recent report by Livemint in 2017 states that India is a very young country and half of its population is under the age of 25.
The youth in India has the ‘power’ to change. To bring this change a lot of pressure from the ‘state’ & ‘society’ is seen all around the country. Popular culture too in some way impacts the youth of the nation.
Therefore, young people choose to move within their home countries as internal migrants or beyond their national borders as international migrants. Majority of migrants stay in their own countries as internal migrants.
The reasons for youth migration may vary from person to person and region to
region. A combination of several major factors leads to the decision to migrate.
Personal considerations, socio-economic circumstances, political situation in
the country of origin, academics & employment.

Make your own decisions
You can’t rely on your parents to tell you what to do anymore. You have to start making decisions on your own.
