Help the nation’s youth force

Yesterday Bangladesh observed the National Youth Day with the theme “Dakkha Juba Gorche Desh, Bangabandhur Bangladesh” (Skilled youths are building the country, Bangabandhu’s Bangladesh). There is little doubt in the reality that in the present economic achievement of the country the youth force of the country is making a great contribution by their talent, skill and ingenuity. But it is also true that a large part of the youth population do not have jobs to sustain life properly. Young people are also increasingly getting involved in destructive habits.  

The President M Abdul Hamid himself in the message of the day said that the larger part of the country’s population is youth aged between 18 and 35. The trend of numerical abundance of youth will continue till 2043. This great youth force can be beneficial for the country, if they all can be turned into a productive workforce with knowledge, education and skill. But if this cannot be done, what would the nation do?  

As many among the young generation are getting increasingly addicted to drugs and choosing a wrong course in life, this apprehension is remaining with us strongly. The decadence of moral values in our society is largely responsible for this. The young ones who have fallen in the morass and are failing to see the sunny side of life are our brothers and sons. The people at the helm of society must seriously think about bringing about a moral regeneration in society.

From the political leadership we often hear the good words that young generation will have to take responsibility of the nation in future, but before that we have to prepare them for such responsibility first. We have to give them better environment to grow and educate themselves.

Unfortunately, the atmosphere in the educational institutions of the country is not conducive to healthy development of citizens. Young people are politically used everywhere; they are encouraged to carry arms in their pockets, not books in their hands. The nation must come out of this and let our young people grow freely in sound academic as well as social atmosphere. The community of teachers and religious preachers also has a strong role here to show the young people the sunny side of existence.

The proverbial “Sonar Bangla” which Bangabandhu dreamt of building cannot be materialized if the power of youth largely remains unused or misused.
