Home The Relevance and Need

India is a country known for its plurality in religion, language, culture and tradition. The people of India take pride in its cultural heritage, traditions and unity. It is also a country taking prominence in the world, by its rapid growth and development in its economy. Yet it remains an eye sore to see the growing gap between the rich and the poor, as the wide between them increases day by day, in spite of the progress the country achieves. The rich become richer and the poor become poorer as equal opportunities are denied to the poor in the society. Ultimately the nation suffers even though it can present itself as growing and its rich men compete with the world’s greatest businessmen and industrialists. What India needs is a uniform growth and the empowerment of the poor and their youth. There are many voluntary organizations both in India and abroad, deeply involved and committed to alleviate this alarming reality of the Indian society. One such organization is Ilanthalir, working in the southern most part of India.
