42.6% of young, urban Indians believe corruption is the biggest challenge - Hindustan Times
the spirit of community service is not completely lost among the youth; 42.2% of the respondents said they had donated books or clothes to the poor. One-third of the respondents from Kolkata have given food to the homeless. Delhi’s youth came out on top (32.3%) among those who had participated in a cleanliness drive in the past one year even though almost 40% of Kolkata’s youth confessed to having littered. Only 11.8% of the youth said they were guilty of drinking and driving while 21.6% confessed they had broken traffic rules in the past. So while serving society may not top the agenda of the urban youth, their acknowledgement of what they are doing wrong is a sign that there is hope for change.
