Important Note : Next Week 12 Jan 2009 , We will celebrate birth day of Swami Vivekananda in the form of national youth day.
Because of I have earlier written on the topic role of youth in national integration and role of youth in nation . Today , I am trying to write role of youth in national development ( Special indian development ) .
India is a country in which has the largest population of young people in the world . According to census there are 64 crores of youth between the age of 13-35 . The projected figure is 70 crores. According to the natioanl youth policy it is the 40% of total population of India.
The role of this vast segment of humanity for national development and international order can , therefore , be hardly estimated .
The Indian youth today is anxious to participate in the onward march of democracy and social justice, his dream is to lead a life of dignity and self respect , he wants to pendence a sin ,he wants to work , in the age group or 10-19 which constitutes 21.4% of total population , 78% of them lives in rural and tribal areas .
So , above data represents clear part of youth in the total population of youth . If they all join they can develop the following things
- Indian financial market
- Indian politics
But the problem is that how these youth will join , With ignorance they never join with each other or unite. An education is the primary ladder of all human development , the national youth policy focuses on out of school , the disabled youth , the rural and tribal youth , the frustrated and the unemployed youth , the youth with special disabilities . For such youth non formal system of education , open school and open university is favoured . The UGC has launched a large number of schemes for such youths .
According to Swami Vivekananda
- " Arise , awake and not stop till the goal is reached .
- Stand up , be bold , be strong , take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders and know that you are the creator of your own destiny.
- The training by which the current and expression of will is brought under control and becomes fruitful is called education.
- The whole world secret of existence is to have no fear . Never fear what will become of you , depend on no one . Only the moment you reject all help are you free.
- Purity , patience and perseverance are the three essential to success , and above all , love. "
If our youth can follow minimum above five thoughts of Swami Vivekananda in their life , they can easily develop not only India but whole world .
In first thought Swami Vivekananda Said about sacrifice of laziness because the prime responsibility of national development is on the head of youth So , it is very necessary for youth to leave all type of laziness , after this they can develop the nation .
In second thought Swami Vivekananda expresses his thought that only sacrifice is not sufficient but our youth must be strong for fighting against different problem of India . Today India is suffering from poverty , unemployment , violence , high population , defects in moral character , Western culture , dishonesty , corruption , black marketing , fraud , cheating . So , to fight these problems , it is very necessary to become bold , to become strong . Only you can take the responsibility , without you no body can take responsibility .
The other thoughts also support , youth for their own development and whole national development . This is the Quality of Swami Vivekananda , so as I am also youth and start some projects for the development of India . Because , if we see always to Govt that govt will do to work for national development , Govt. Can only plans but you can do . So Do like Swami Vivekananda .
There are many systems with youth can develop whole nation :-
- Making of National youth centre
Making of national youth centre is good idea in which youth can express their opinion on vital issues concerning them and the society . A national youth development fund should also be created by this centre for the development of nation.
