Future is in the hands of youths

The youths are an important asset, more than any other age groups as they determine the future of our society. It is believed that developing countries with large youth population could see tremendous growth, provided they invest in young people’s education, health and protect and guarantee their rights. Being a democratic nation and largest democracy in the world, India is still lagging behind in achieving socio-political and economic equalities, which were dreamt by our predecessors. The pivotal role of youth who are afresh with ideas and not ideals, will help in stirring a positive movement towards a transparent civil society structure which can influence the political administration for the benefit of the society. It is only through a strong system of representation that democracy work and it is only through a strong youth representation that the dynamism and vigour of a country be maintained.
The youths are problem solvers, have a positive influence on other young people and the nation, and are extremely ambitious. They have the ability to create an identity for themselves and move the nation forward. However, they will not be able to do this without the support of family, community, Government and fellow youths. Then the youth can make their beautiful land flourish and shine in success. There are so many reasons why many Indian youths are not looking at this country as their own and are looking for their home in other countries. First, it’s the quality of education, and then comes power politics, not many sectors to broaden their careers, etc. The biggest contributor to empower the youth’s success is its education. Most of them manage to navigate through a tough and complex education system, but many young people are excluded from completing their education.
There is a need for early reading and supporting the development of the role of youth. Those who are already in the education system must see what support can be provided to them. We should ensure that young people are supported to stay in schools and what skills they need to navigate the complex system. If the youths hold the future, parenting has become important now more than ever.
