    but still people will say that, “Aane kehvay Vikas”. as per my opinion gujarat is in deep deep sleep because of sleeping pills given by our politicians with development hype. I don’t know much about other areas but education sector is totally collapsed in gujarat. we have lots of degree holders but don’t have enough opportunities for them!!!!
    God knows where youth of gujarat will go?
