According to a survey conducted by Ipsos MORI, a London –based market research firm, India has the "dubious honour" of being the second most ignorant nation in the world after Mexico.
The survey polled 25,000 people from 33 countries posed questions on issues like inequality, non-religious population, female employment and internet access and found that while people "over-estimate what we worry about", a lot of major issues are underestimated.
The rankings of the nations were based on the "Index of Ignorance" which was determined by questions about wealth that the top one per cent own, obesity,immigration, living with parents, rural living and internet access.
As BW Businessworld surveyed youth, we found a mixed bag of reactions. While some are happy with the security, a few are still not satisfied with education and awareness among Indians.
