"We are unnecessarily wasting our precious resources in wars... if we must wage war, we have to do it on unemployment, disease, poverty, and backwardness." -Atal Bihari Vajpayee

The problem of unemployment is the most serious problem facing our country and all over the world. A large number of educated and uneducated people loiter about in search of some job. They are willing to work but they cannot get it. There is unemployment in cities, towns and villages. An empty mind is the devil's workshop. An unemployed person is a nuisance to society. A hungry man can do any wrong. therefore, It is our government's duty to solve the problem of unemployment as early as possible before it becomes severe. 

There are many causes of unemployment in India. The greatest cause of unemployment is the overpopulation of the country. The population of the country is growing fast but the jobs cannot be increased in the same proportion. So a large number of skilled and talented people remain unemployed.

Another cause of unemployment is our defective system of education. The present education is bookish. It must be job oriented. Our current education system is not preparing students for life and every young man of today is only running for a white-collar job.

Machines are also responsible for unemployment. A single machine does the work of hundreds or thousands of people. So the labour remains unemployed and their mind redirects that population into offence, annoyance and trobles. Mahatama Gandhi's idea of replacing unemployment was "Not mass production but production by masses."

To solve these problems, there should be a regular check on the rapid growth of the population. The program of family planning should be more active in rural areas. The system should be more focused on technical and vocational education. Importance should be given to practical knowledge rather than theoretical knowledge. The government should create more jobs for the educated unemployed. Cottage and small scale industries should be developed. The government and banks should support the youths to set up cottage industries and start-ups.

To Conclude, we can say that our government is trying to solve the problems which are taken as a very serious matter. Efforts to control the population are being made but still, the government has to put more effort. Irrigation and multipurpose projects are increasing. Technical and vocational courses are being provided by many institutes. Small scale businesses and start-ups are being encouraged by the government. Last but not least, in the words of Lal Bahadur Shastri, "We can win respect in the world only if we are strong internally and can banish poverty and unemployment from our country."
