The late American singer Kurt Cobain once said, “The duty of the youth is to challenge corruption.” When it comes to Indian politics, the youth has to challenge the corrupt. Most believe that the system is rigid and cannot be changed and we can only face what’s destined for us. However, the truth is, the real power lies with each one of us. In the world’s largest democracy, it’s a shame that we’re still struggling and still asking for basic rights.
“What’s the problem?” This is one question no one wants to think about. People just want to go with the flow.
Nowadays, even the highly educated don’t apply for white collar jobs but people with little to no education can become ministers and run the country! There’s a dearth of active young ministers and politicians in the country.
As the Nobel Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi said, “the power of youth is commonwealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present and our future. No segment in the society can match with the power, idealism, enthusiasm and courage of the young people.”
Young college students should be aware of the political situation in the country as they are the future leaders. The nation’s progress depends on them. The youth can envision a better future for the country.
Younger politicians should be given the space and the responsibility to take the country ahead with their vision and energy. They can always consult the older politicians for their experience is invaluable.
As the future of this country, we must realise that we can bring about change in the country. The better tomorrow is in our hands!
