‘Youth, phases of childhood life’
Youth is the time of life when one I young or we can say that it is the phase of life between the childhood and adulthood. When we talk about youths, virtual image irritated our mind that is future of the country.
There are three phase of life childhood, young age and old age. These ages reflect time as past, present and future. Youth is like a present moment of life. The United Nation defines youth as persons between the ages of 14 to 21.
Youth is a worthwhile phase of one’s life. The age where the age group is no longer of a child but yet to turn out to be a grown-up is the youth age. It is a golden phase to achieve the dual goals of intelligence and character. It is a critical age of growth, a period of uncertainty when everything is in uproar. Youth is neither a child nor an adult, the personality possesses a combination of both stages. He can be self-seeking at some times or turn out to be self-sacrificing the very next day. He may also turn out to be disobedient one day.
Youth is the hope of tomorrow. This is because people belonging to the young generation are full of life. They are inquisitive to learn new things and ready to explore the world. They are extraordinary on energy and do not want to conform to the customs and traditions set by the earlier generations. The human development has evolved over centuries. Each generation comes up with its set of ideas and opinions and contributes towards the development of society. However, while the human mind and intellect has developed over the time people have also grown quite impatient. The youth today is keen on learning and exploring new things. Now, while they may seek the word of advice from their elders they do not want to be guided by them at every step.
Youth develops a repellant personality and thus we can see conflicts in thoughts between the families. It is also a major cause of worsening of family relations. Youth, being argumentative in nature, develop an attitude of apt rationale and judgment. Modern youth does not conform to the rules set by his elders. He wants his parents and guardians by his side but doesn’t want their guidance at every step.
It is a well-known fact that the youth of any country is a countless asset. They are indeed the future of the country and represent it at every level. The role of youths in nation-building is more vital than you might think. In other words, the intelligence and work of the youth will take the country on the pathway of achievement. If the mindset of the youth in the country is correct and these potential talents are driven they will certainly do well for the society. With appropriate knowledge and the right tactic, they can excel in various fields including technology, science, medicine, sports and more.
Today they might be our partners, tomorrow they will go on to become leaders. The youths are very energetic and enthusiastic. They have the ability to learn and adapt to the background. Similarly, they are willing to learn and act on it as well to achieve their goals.
We see how the development of any country entails active participation from the youth. It does not matter which field we want to progress in, whether it is the technical field or sports field, youth is wanted. It is up to us how to help the youth in playing this role properly.
The youth these days have become so engrossed in their mobile phones and social media that they have forgotten that there is a life outside of it too. The youth of today is self-obsessed and wants to show off anything and everything he does by way of social media. Instead of enjoying the moment.
There are many ways in which we can help the youth of our country to attain their latent. For that, the government must introduce programs that will help in fighting off issues like unemployment, poor education institutes and more to help them flourish without any hindrance.
Furthermore, equivalent opportunities must be provided for all regardless of caste, creed, gender, race, religion and more. There are numerous issues of nepotism and favoritism that is eating away the actual talent of the country. The government must take steps to avoid and totally end these issues as soon as possible. It is the responsibility of the government to ensure that every youth has the chance to prove themselves worthy and that must be offered equally to all.
Youth is the golden period to cherish a big dream full of passion and energy. Although, the period is also full of adventures yet they have to be looked for with the eyes open. It is the time when we can provide shape to our ideas for the economic development of society.
In short, our youth has the power to build a nation so we must give them the opportunity. They are the future and they have the perspective which the older generations lack. Their zeal and enthusiasm must be channelized properly to help a nation prosper and flourish.
