Role of Youth in Nation's Building
 Instead complaining on the topic,
“Why India is Still an UnderdevelopedNation?”
I thought it would be better to discuss the role of youth in nation’s building.
 According to me,
“Youth is that spark which needs no ignition”.
Youth is thatclay which can be molded in either shape one wants. In my belief, this is the sole reasonfor both exploitation and utilization of youth in the destruction and construction of any nation respectively.It is a fact that, the nation
’s building is highly dependent on youth. Youth is that
powerful resource, which can either construct or destruct the whole nation as already said. According to everyone, youth should step forward to take up on the responsibility in developing the nation. Yes, I agree that, youth is not given a proper chance to provetheir potentials in countries like ours, but,
“The young”
, according to Pearl S. Buck, (aNobel Laureate in literature)
“do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore
they attempt the imposs
ible, and achieve it, generation after generation”.
Isn’t this single quotation of her is sufficient to motivate the whole nation? Or do we still
need motivational quotes like the one above to recall our own potentials to attempt theimpossible and achieve the success? It seems highly surprising that,
 we, the youth fail
to display the same enthusiasm in nation’s building which we often display 
for getting ahead in traffic?
Have we really forgotten our responsibility towards ournation or that we are knowingly skipping the tasks to achieve development? It isobserved that, the youth who always fight for enjoying their rights, never wish to take upthe pains of responsibility. According to me, Indian youth is socially responsible and moreover is workingdedicatedly to see India attain the developed status. Many educated youth had already realized the necessity of utilizing their skills for the betterment of the society but at thesame time, the youth is also misguided to a larger extent by some evil sources makingthem irresponsible towards the society they live in. It is pathetic but true that, due tomany 
problems that exists in today’s world, youth is highly attracted and/or fancied
towards evil sources. As a result, a huge destruction is occurring all over. It is true that, youth is highly amendable, but one must show the guts to take up the challenge to guidethe youth to a correct path as Swami Vivekananda and other eminent persons did in thepast. But, speaking frankly, one must never wait for any as it damages the power of self-confidence and courage.
Luxuries, evil habits and societal commitments also gain youth’s attraction to a greater
extent. In search of the above three, the youth is losing its identity and goals in no timeas said by one of my friends. I already stated that, I am not against self-prosperity, and Ialways feel happy for the youth who is self-
reliant in nature. (In my article, “How to Achieve Personal Freedom”, I stressed the necessity of self 
-reliance.) And of course, Iam completely aware of the Indian Society and Culture, where more number of parents
doesn’t wish to see their children working, as they think that, at least their children mustnot suffer. It is one point of view, where parents think of their children’s growth in eve
ry aspect and on the other hand, the youth (to a greater extent in India), which isdependant on their parents, will never wish not to work towards attaining self-reliance.It not only showcases the laziness of the youth but also the irresponsible behaviortowards their country.It always hurts me, when I see some youth taking wrong steps and/or directions toattain luxuries viz., by corruption, dowry, all kinds of malpractices like treachery,
plagiarism, etc., It sounds true, as said by my friend’s grand
father that,
“ModernEducation ruins Moral Education.”
People, at the present date are completely neglecting the ethical values and ruining the moral education they had had learned intheir childhood. This may be the reason why, people (World has 6.66 billion populationamong which 27% constitutes youth) are residing mostly in many-an-old age homes,orphanages, homes for the destitute, juvenile homes, individual families, and jails. Youth must take necessary steps and find new methods or revive old methods to avoidthe above problems.
Evil habits, is a hip in today’s world. It is impossible for anyone to escape from these
until and unless they are self-confident to control themselves. Self-Controllability is theonly measure to save oneself from evil habits. Drugs, Alcohol, Smoking, undesirable
sexual activities etc., also hinder nation’s building. If the youth gets addicted to any of 
these activities, one can easily predict that, the destruction has started not only as theperson but also harms the nation which needs young blood to run and/or construct it.One has to realize the necessity of being healthy in almost every aspect of life.The statistics prove that, India stands second in the most populous nations, third incorruption, fifth in unemployment, twelfth in poverty, etc., It seems funny but true that,even after sixty years of independence, the country has a tremendous growth only in the
population and not in all aspects and/or sectors to an expected level. Isn’t that making
