We will Dekode this and a lot more in this episode of our new series, DEKODED, where we Dekode things from the everyday world.
The Indian millennials of today are a product of a time when India was gradually opening up to the world. Education slowly has reached the remote corners of the country, but redundant policies and age-old education practices have led to a rising number of unemployed individuals.

We focus majorly on education, jobs, and the rising information gap amongst the Indian millennial in this episode, trying to understand why are the millennials so badly hit during these tough times. And what can be done, so that we don’t make the same mistakes with the generations to come! This, and a lot more, in this episode of DEKODED.
