Subject: Role of Youth in Eradicating Social Problems
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of the youth towards the problems of poverty, unemployment and corruption, which are constantly gnawing at the roots of our country.
It is because of them that our country is still considered a developing country and not a developed one. The youth too has a role to play in the country’s development process. Therefore, the youth must participate in the eradication of such problems.
The youth of today has a broader outlook regarding issues concerning them and their country than their previous generations. The young adults are passionate, enthusiastic and quick at expressing their opinion about what pleases or displeases them. Their active participation in protests, demonstrations, candle light marches, etc. to fight injustice or for any social cause has been tremendous in the recent past. However, the youth has the potential to do more.
The youth is the hope of the nation. Therefore, they should come forward and shoulder more responsibilities. They must raise their voice against corruption and raise awareness whenever it seems necessary. The youth today is a ‘start up’ generation. Hence, they should encourage selfemployment amongst the less-privileged so that the latter can earn their own living.
If the youth really commits to the eradication of the problems of poverty, unemployment and corruption, they can strive ahead and bring an economic revolution in the country. Hence, I request the young adults to play their role, take the responsibility in bringing a change in the system so that others are inspired. Only the collaborative effort of every citizen of India can lead our country towards prosperity.
