Today’s youth is tomorrow’s nation. And today’s youth are our students. Students do pay a vital role in the society and how a society is shaped generation after generations. The formative period of an individual is during the student phase and hence it is known to be the crucial time of life. What is being sown today is what shall be reaped later. Education is where a student gets formed from. Education is in-fact character building in students. It through education that he understands the facts and figures and how things ought to be sorted and what is the current scenario and many other relevant important factors. Based on these factors are what he redesigns his thoughts and ideas and this is what helps him in due course when being an adult. Education enables the student to understand within himself his strengths and freedom in his life. Education starts not only at school, but from every home. A child learns from his home, school and then from the society and thus every individual that a kid interacts, influences his life later on.
When students are being treated with due respect and responsibility, they have also lived up to be responsible and respect in return to the society. When being recognized, they have the acceptance to work for a better society through hardships rather than giving up in between. Today, there are many activities that students take initiatives for the betterment of the society. We have seen that students of the younger classes taking steps to plant tress and thus promoting awareness programs on protecting tress and the importance of planting trees for the coming generations, rather than felling trees. There are activities where students promote for the awareness of old age and rescue shelters. College going students take the initiatives to help the old and abandoned people on the streets and get them to a rescue shelter or homes that provide proper food, clothing and medication for them. Apart from these , when there is a natural calamity in any part of the globe, schools across the globe contribute to the affected people and place what they can and this kind of programs would help realize young children the importance of brotherhood.
At schools there are the NCC camps and Scout troops that have been trained and in such situations they have been of immense help and have done real commendable services to the nation. Apart from services, we have political arena where students are seen. With the right kind of motivation and guidance, they could become the most trustworthy, most accepted and sensible leaders for tomorrow. However, if exploited, they could become the worst and corrupt leaders. It is we who bring the good and bad out in our students. We have seen how the youth stand as one against the negative aspects like corruption, violence, terrorism and fight for the peace and security of the nation. However we see that there is a lack of patriotism in the youth slowly coming up which destroys the harmony and peace of the nation.
Students act as bridges between two generations. They need to realize and understand the happening of today and eliminate the bad and extract the good and implement for tomorrow. For this understanding , the right education with the right involvement of the happening is a requirement and the education system should see to it that are being equipped for a better understanding rather than classifying education as elementary, secondary or higher education. The syllabus and the activities should be framed in such a manner that it is interactive and interesting so that students understand and signify the importance of what they learn.
If we do not mould our youth today, we may have to regret tomorrow as tomorrow’s nation is in the hands of our upcoming youth and they in turn would pass on what they have acquired in a better format to the forth coming generations, thus enabling the nation to grow in all sectors and make is one among the most powerful and harmonious nations of tomorrow. Set an example for your young child and he will make sure that he lives up to your expectations for tomorrow. When every family sets an example, it would grow into the society and thus grow out to the nation. So let us join hands now for a better tomorrow through our youth who are budding students now. India needs us and we should stand for HER…
