Young people in any country represent the future of that country. They have a vital role to play in the development of the country a duty they must perform.
There are many ways that youth can contribute to national development.They can do so by working hard in any field they are involved in, be it the teaching, mechanic, or farming field.
Working for one’s nation with total devotion and commitment is an obligation for every citizen thus the need to have orientation events for our youth to teach them what national service is all about.
However, to ensure the active participation of young people in national development, they need to be supported and encouraged by the government, the private sector, the civil society and their parents.
One does not need to belabour the point that there are many young people who if given the required support can contribute meaningfully to national development. But bringing such youths onboard the development wagon becomes the responsibility of those in authority.
Having said that, it is also essential to note that young people must also believe in themselves; that they can become a big asset both individually and collectively to national development if they work hard.
The continued over-dependency phenomenon cannot take our youth anywhere, nor can it help them to meaningfully contribute to national development as expected.
It is true that today’s youth are facing many challenges, such as HIV/AIDS, unemployment and drug abuse, but there also exist opportunities to gradually overcome some of these challenges.
In a situation where opportunities are limited – like nowadays – youth seeking jobs must avoid the habit of pick-and-choose; instead they should learn to take what is available till they get what they want.
This country needs more qualified engineers, plumbers, tailors, economists and journalists, etc to lead us to our developmental aspirations.
However, to help our youth get to where they want and enable them become effective contributors to nation-building all hands must be on deck in achieving this objective, as the youth need support and motivation.
Also to enhance the participation of youth in national development, they must be given the opportunity to effectively participate in decision-making processes, especially on issues affecting their lives.
“Let us acknowledge and celebrate what youth can do to build a safer, more jus world. let us strengthen our efforts to include young people in policies, programmes and decision-making processes that benefit their futures and ours.”

The bud of nation’s future finds a fragrant blooming in the hands of its youth. It’s the time of culmination when the youth must realize and individually shoulder the responsibility of resuscitation of India in every aspect viz. social, economical, political, administrative etc. Development of a strong nation demands youth possessing steely will power, mighty determination and tremendous grit. For this, the youth itself must be fully sound and armor itself with all essential qualities so that modern India sees its unprecedented growth and development by skilled finishers. Youth are the real sculptors of the nation and Swami Vivekananda rightly called the youth “The Real Power of the Nation”.
What is actually required in the present scenario is to unleash the immense latent patriotism and chauvinism among youth, which will lit the fire of responsibility and will dedicatively involve them in the upliftment of the nation. The primary factors inhibiting the growth of the modern India are:
3. Communal Disparities
Albert Einstein once said ,”Problem cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them”. So in order to eradicate these crux youth with double toughness are required. The main motto of the youth should be” to nip the evil in the bud”. Our political system is governed by desperados, hooligans and such miscreants of society who have attired themselves in the robes that presents them as the saviours of the nation. Infact they are eating away the nation like worms slowly and gradually. Criminalisation of the politics has infact obfuscated the image of fair play in government. So this is now a “Wake up Call”, for the youth of the modern India to wake, rise and move ahead and prove their hegemony over such corrupt leaders and take the command into their hands to run the government.
