India has an unrivaled youth demographic: 65% of its population is 35 or under, and half the country's population of 1.25 billion people is under 25 years of age.
Out of such a population, it is impossible to understand that we have dearth of talent. We lack process to identifying those talent and give them platform to showcase their talent
