In the rapidly-advancing world of science and technology, what is needed is well-educated and english-speaking agricultural workers and managers. English is the language of science and technology. It is also the language of law. it is also the language of business.
If a community fears that its girls are marrying outside, then they have to adopt change and move to the world of english, science and technology. It is not something which is impossible. Every community has had engineers and doctors in the 50s and 60s who have come to the cities and made successful careers. However, for every one person thus settled in the cities, there are 100,000 people still in the villages. These people in the villages should take those in their communities who left the village in the 50s and 60s as inspiration and join the global stream of science and technology.
Being fully involved in agriculture is not a good reason for avoiding higher education. The government must deliver the highest-quality english training either as a part of the regular syllabus or as an activity. The DMK needs to adopt this and implement it in its manifesto. The DMK created Anna University campuses across the state and improved the spread of engineering knowledge.But, the visionless, clueless and hopeless Jayalaalitha nullified this step of taking education to the people.
For a girl in the village, the agricultural society with its total resistance to change will appear as a prison and she will prefer to live in the cities, not only to experience a modern society but also to experience a free society.
It is possible to be a part of the global information stream and a farmer at the same time. When this new thinking is seen in the villages, no girl will want to leave the community and village. And, when a girl falls in love with someone from another community, it will not appear as a threat to the community.
