Skill Development : India is global example

A plumber is a doctor in plumbing.
A brain surgeon or medical doctor will fail if we compare them with plumber practical skills in plumbing.

But a brain surgeon's purpose of life is brain surgery and not plumbing.
So a brain surgeon should attend new technology as well as expert & experienced doctor's skill.

Same with a farmer.
A great cardiac surgeon can not do plouging or dig the agricultural land effectively because they dont know how to do it or have skill to do it. Unless she or he had done agricultural farming in the past (not just for a day but at least a year)

A nurse can not do heart operation even if she is there in the operation theatre while operation is done.
This is because she is not skilled to operate.
Yes, both her and doctor spend same time in operation theatre. Infact she spends more time.
So a doctor has a medical skill to operate and has sufficient knowledge learnt academically about the conditions of patient, practcies to be used.
But an experience doctor has developed more skills (mainly mental skills) with experience.

So skill development is for people from all categories in all countries.
But we limit our skill development forum to only a few skills, typically for those who desparately need them for their survival. And thinking attitude of them and the world about what they can do (this is for the so called disabled which are differently abled).

There is hardly any academic school or college of skill development. Its practical experience. So there are many ways in which one can do real life skill development and we will share the efforts of NGOs which help related communities.

The insufficient skills and illiteracy compel the poor section of the society to put more physical efforts than those which really need..
So despite sweating hard, they manage only daily wage.
Because they dont have skills, they use human labour elements.
If the same person is a skilled plumber, then it benefits her or him live life and gives them relaxation time to conserve energy for tomorrow.
Its the same story for agriculture or children or disabled or women or youth or whatever category one thinks of.

Even in the films, a skiiled actor doesnt need too many shots.
The first shot manytimes is ok. It not only saves time for her or him, but for all the people associated there and it really makes economic sense to be skilled artist.

Now for some, this skill was always there but even the best artist is not a perfect artist.
She or he needs to upgrade skills, know latest technologival advances .. so skill development is like a Change which is constant.

One surely needs to know the challenges people face.
But knowing challenges is not even half the purpose.
The bigger purpose is to know success stories of how people solved challenges, get motivated to use these stories as case studies..

We know a Good programme is a Good programme and like 10 is 10 in any country, good programmes are good case studies.
They key is change the programme based on community needs or culture & political pressure or geographic pressure ... you can modify programmes, copy prgrammes, scaleup the programmes ... We completely agree that Government of a country has to address the challenges its citizens face and NGOs need to help the Government.
