“Youth is the most precious thing in life; it is too bad it has to be wasted on young folks” -George Bernard Shaw
I liked the definition of “Youth” given in Collins dictionary which is “Youth is the quality or state of being young.” When you are a youth you are full of energy, excitement, hope and dreams. In India 65% of the population is youth. Imagine the reservoir of youthful power India holds. The Youth is contributing into different areas whether it is Agriculture, Art, Science and Technology, Environment Protection, Power sector, Health, Business and building the Nation into a powerful country.
Today’s youth is well informed, aware, questions dogmatic ideas and ready to initiate.
Garvita Gulhati and Pooja Tanawade were in school when a presentation from Reap Benefits, NGO brought in the attention of water wastage in Restaurants. They took initiative and started addressing restaurants and brought attention of water wastage. Many a times they were discouraged but they did not give up. Garvita Gulhati’s efforts has been recognized and has received the title of “Global Changemaker.”
Unfortunately, today’s Youth also experiences many fears which were not there earlier like cyber bullying, fear of not getting employment due to economic instability, fear of violence, discrimination, fear of conflict, War. It is important to address your fears and voice it otherwise it can pull you down. You become your own advocate, make efforts to resolve your fear/fears and conquer it. Speak up, have dialogue and seek support. Don’t live in fear!!
Augustine “Og” Mandino, an American Author and write of the bestselling book, “The Greatest Salesman in the World” said, “Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. “
Recognize your fears, recognize your dreams, recognize your potential and take action now. Your life is precious and you have lot to offer to the World.
The World is waiting for you to “Rise”
