Youth power for Nation Building by GL Bajaj

          
“Youth itself is a talent – a perishable talent.” is truly said by Eric
Hoffer.

Youth power is a recognized force in the world
today.The youth are filled with tremendous energy and towering power. They can
be utilized as a constructive force and as a destructive force by any nation. India,now
aged at 65 is  one of the
largest reservoir of Youth population
. The age group of 16-30 years
constitute of more than 40% of India’s population which is indeed a large
force. Our youth are energetic,
enthusiastic and always full of zeal to do the impossible.

But having such a massive youth population in
India will not do any good if our youth population is not shown the right path.Most of the youth in India are generally without
any direction,If we can harness this powerhouse of the nation in the right
direction then the country can reach untold heights
.Being
said that we should not completely depend on our Government to harness this
powerhouse,contribution of all sides is required for this. The youth of India
needs to be multifaceted with education remaining at the core of everything.
Education empowers you with the ability to think, to tell the right from the
wrong and good from the bad. In a country like India where “traditions and
customs” is sometimes bigger than humanity itself; education is not an option,
it is a necessity.

Education plays a vital role for this,we should
be able to educate all our youth from the initial stages of their life,We
should be able to make them understand the importance of Education.Not just any kind of Education, but
the right kind of Education which makes them scientific, logical, open-minded,
self-respecting, responsible, honest and patriotic
. Without these virtues being
developed, our youth cannot walk in the desired way and they will stay in a
deep slumber of complacency.

Even education to some extent will not help as we
see many educated young population working overseas,The question is why can’t
they do it here,the answer lies in lack of opportunities which is in plenty in
other countries
. Why our country is unable
to offer such opportunities to us?Its because the Government have not taken any
initiative or we the youth have not taken any steps to make government realize
the power of youth.Have we forgotten that
today India is Independent because of the youth power in our freedom
struggle,we owe Independent India to the youth power of our past and to make it
better for our future generation we must rise once again together.

Youth of India must be able to come up with new
ideas of Entrepreneurship which is very vital for the country’s growth.For a youth
educated in India he/she must think about the development in India which now
have utmost important for our country’s development.

Let us focus on constructively using the power of
the youth for the betterment of the nation. Let us frame such policies which
aim at empowering our youth so that we can be assured of a better future and a
brighter tomorrow.
