What is supposed to be the most renewable resource in today’s world? It’s the skill and knowledge of people, especially the youths who are of the age group between eighteen to
thirty-five years of age. Is there any action plan to utilize this
resource? In this context, there is a most popular saying, “youths are the future of the country”.
Do you know what kind of
standard of living do these youths enjoy in Nepal at
present? Are you taking the growing number of Nepalese youths as an opportunity or a challenge for a country? Do the youths of Nepal have the progressive and future oriented value chain system to operate at full potential?
According to the recent
census, about 2 million youths are missing from our country. Did you try to find the reasons, where and why this big number of youths have left for and what type of living standard do these youths enjoy abroad? Can you feel the psychological pain of these youths, created due to their isolation from the
emotional comfort of home and the country which is best
expressed by Laxmi Prasad
Devkota, in the book named “Muna Madan”?
Have you ever analyzed what quality of life the youths inside the country are enjoying? Have you heard the real story of Nepalese parents who have
sold their child for 50 dollars,
because they couldn’t ensure two time meal for their child? Can you feel the the pain of the parents who have no choice and are left only with the option of sending their children as child labour?
Have you ever tried to find out the negative consequences of waste of youths? As a result of lack of proper education and opportunities how our youth are easily drawn to foreign countries resulting in brain drain? Have you ever tried to analyze the reasons and background of the youths who actively took part in the conflict era? Have you ever tried to analyze the faces and reasons behind the UK riots, the shootings in Finland, Norway and USA.
In the present context of our country, youths who are the
party material are either busy touting party propaganda or spending their days sleeping and spending time partying while the youths who are not the party material sought opportunities to leave the country
and work abroad. At present, youths are those who suffer the most from our system. So, in
order to ensure the prosperity of our country, most of all the right inspirational leadership is
needed which can enhance and manage the flow of Nepalese youths by creating timely plans, policies, programs and opportunities.
