National Youth Day

Every year 12 January is celebrated as the National Youth Day, being the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. In 1984 government of India declared this day as National Youth Day and 1985 onwards we celebrated this event in India.

Swami Vivekananda’s lectures and writings, deriving their inspiration from Indian spiritual tradition and the broad outlook of his Master Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa. These were the source of inspiration and have motivated the youth.

Swami Vivekananda created a great impact on Youth. His words were simple yet very powerful. He said, “If you think yourselves weak, weak you will be; if you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.” He also said, “See for the highest, aim at that highest, and you shall reach the highest.” His messeges gave a boost to the youth.

As Mitochondria is the power house of cell. Youth is the powerhouse of a country. Youth plays a vital role in shaping the future of a country. It has the power to help a country develop and move towards progress. It is also responsible for bringing social reform within a country. The youth brings revolution.

In our Indian history there are many examples that justify the contribution of the youth towards the progress of the country. That how the Youth of India fought to bring Independence in the country.

In our country half of the population is youth. If they will take proper action towards the problems occurring in our country, it will not only benefit the country but will also inspire young ones. Like many youth are running campaigns and organisations on various things like
Many are cleaning the garbage near the seaside or in a land, some helping the poor children in studying, some protesting against child labour, also against rapes, etc . Active participation of youth is hence very much important. It can spread the message of national integration.

Youth should not keep their energies and enthusiasm inside. It should go out in betterment of the society. Many are unware of there potential and their capabilities. Sometimes youth undergoes through a lot of problems at this time the rest people should encourage and motivate them. And give them equal opportunities so that they can succeed in life. Motivate them to take challenges and achieve their desired goals in life.

The prior duty of youth is to encourage others to join a youth organization. Inspire and teach young people to take responsibilities and volunteer for a social cause and bring some social changes. Various organizations and charities recruit youngsters and motivate them to get involved in social cause.

The youth should ask young people to join campaigns or organizations to raise awareness for a social cause. Teach them to take a stand against something wrong and help them transform their ideas into reality. With their active participation we can bring some significant social changes in the country that are mostly overlooked. Therefore, do not wait for anything and join a campaign or any organisation and raise awareness about it among people.
