To put it in plain words, in order to proceed with the idea of writing on the topic of youths, it is better to elucidate their inherent energy, strength, ability and power, so that none can confound about the capacity of youths even at this time of scientific innovations in the world. Politicians do not waste time in recognising their power and that’s why they move with their association.
Of course, it was required to jot down this piece at a time when the right to freedom of expression allows this endeavour. It occurs because I know how many of us don’t like hyperbole. I also know that is one of our tested trends, so, willing to write it down because all confidence comes out as it happened.
None of the factual facts, thus, get missed, which is another element of our tendencies, and I hope that you see this as advancement as well as me evolving with the stimulus of the least dexterity in writing.
“Nahin Tera Nasheman Qasr-e-Sultani Ke Gunbad Par, Tu Shaheen Hai, Basera Kar Paharon Ki Chatanon Mein (Thy abode is not on the dome of a royal palace; You are an eagle and should live on the rocks of mountains),” writes Allama Iqbal addressing the youths.
If we count the total tally of mountains in the whole world, its number comes at 10,00,809. While the total number of youths in the world are not worth countable. However, this attention holds important value if it is searched or counted country-wise. Could the UNO give the figure about the tally of the world of the youth-wide? Surely it can, as there exists the tally in this regard.
Though China is the world’s most populated country, the number of youths can possibly not be higher than in India.
According to one reference, the global number of youths is the highest ever. As the world is home to as many as 1.8 billion young people between the ages of 10 and 24 years, nine in 10 of the world’s young population lives in less developed countries. Young people are without a doubt the innovators, creators, builders and leaders of the future.
Youths represent hopefulness. It is they who can change the course of history. They have the power to sway. What they need to apprehend is that life has a purpose and it should be used in a purpose useful for the impressive cause of humanity. If they renounce the glitter of artificial life, they can do what appears extremely difficult due to their weak willpower.
What the great poet emphasises is living a life of simple living and high thinking. Life on the mountainous rocks where life cannot be luxurious but can be heroic. In the poet’s view, youth is like an eagle, more powerful than a buteo. An eagle may resemble a vulture in build and flight characteristics but has a fully feathered (often crested) head and strong feet equipped with great curved talons. An additional difference is in prowling habits: eagles subsist mainly on live prey.
