Youth is hope for a developed Bangladesh

If a country is compared to a moving train, the youth will be the fuel of that train, which can make a regular contribution to keep the country operational. It is said that the youth determines the future course of a state. The country will move forward along the path that the youth of the country will walk in the future. The history of change, innovation and overcoming adversity has been written all over the world, all in the hands of young society.
Cricket is currently the most popular sport in Bangladesh. Bangladesh has achieved unimaginable success in cricket for more than a decade. Bangladesh has won against a number of strong opponents at home and abroad, including the quarter-finals of the World Cup, the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy, and the loss of superpowers such as Australia and England in Tests. Not only that, the list of achievements of Bangladesh in the world of cricket is longer. The world's best all-rounder in three formats of cricket has been born in this country. Our cricketers are constantly breaking records in the history of cricket and setting new records. The success of these self-confident youths has made the countrymen dream too. So the countrymen dreamed of winning a World Cup trophy. The national cricket team in Bangladesh is a team full of youth. But Bangladesh's first World Cup trophy came in the hands of relatively young people. The youth of Bangladesh won the Under-19 World Cup title in February this year. Bangladesh won the 'Little Boys' World Cup' trophy before winning the 'Big boys' World Cup' trophy. And this success has come from the hands of the youth.
In the last few decades, the youth of Bangladesh have achieved unimaginable success in the country and around the world. Just as Shakib Al Hasan has become the best in the world of cricket, so too have many youngsters proudly represented Bangladesh in various competitions and world events. In recent years, several young people from Bangladesh have received numerous prestigious accolades, including Queen's Young Leader, Forbes 30 Under 30, Princess Diana Award. The discovery of young entrepreneurs in Bangladesh has spread to different countries of the world. Young people are leading to build the future of Bangladesh even within the country. It is worth mentioning the contribution of the youth especially in the IT sector.
Historically, the youth of Bangladesh have a very confident, independent and protestant attitude. They have been leaving proof of this for ages. At various stages of the anti-British movement, the youth came to the fore. If we look at the language movement known as the 'Seed Sowing Movement' for the Establishment of Independent Bangladesh, we can see that the movement was started by the students and they organized this movement. The majority of the martyrs in the great language movement were the youth. The youth of Bangladesh have made a significant contribution to each of the movements that have taken place in the subsequent period towards the independence of Bangladesh. Even in the great liberation war of 1971, the spontaneous participation of the youth was noticeable. Later, the youth of the country also came forward to rebuild the war-torn country. The youth of this country has always been vocal against irregularities, injustice and corruption.

Young people are the main driving force of a nation. The future of the country will follow the path that the youth will follow. So if the path of the youth is bright, if their steps bring the message of the new horizon, then that message shows the country the light of hope. The huge youth of Bangladesh has immense potential. If the youth can be guided through effective and right direction, it will bring good for the country. For this, the government, the state and the society must come forward from now on.

Sixty percent of the current population of Bangladesh is between 21 and 35 years of age. By 2030, it will increase to 70-75 percent. This huge population will one day lead the country in all areas. So from now on they have to be prepared for the future. Long-term planning is needed to harness this large number of able-bodied young people. Literacy rate is increasing in our country. The rate of higher education has also increased at a significant rate across the country. Thousands of graduates are being produced across the country every year. But it is not possible to create equal employment opportunities for all of them. So some alternative measures need to be taken. In addition to formal education, young people need to be educated in technical education so that they can earn a living after graduation. Many young people in our country migrate abroad at the end of their higher education and settle there. This damaged the country's human resources. Young people need to adopt effective action plans to curb this trend. They have to find out the reason for this tendency and try to keep the country's resources in the country. We have to create opportunities for the youth of the country to participate in international standard education and research work from within the country. Therefore, it is necessary to increase investment in research. At the same time the government needs to focus on creating young entrepreneurs and, if necessary, provide special incentive packages.

In the context of Bangladesh, drugs are one of the main reasons for the decline of the moral values of the youth. The omnipotent effect of drugs is misleading the youth of the country. Therefore, the anti-drug movement must be turned into a social movement and the free spread of drugs must also be resisted. In addition, institutional counseling for young people also needs to be arranged.

The lazy brain is the devil's factory. We see the real proof of this proverb among the young society of this country. Due to lack of work or education, many young people are involved in various immoral activities including social crimes. In order to bring the youth back from this path, it is necessary to create workplace and healthy entertainment system for them. Libraries, social clubs need to be established for the youth in every neighborhood, ward and area. Initiatives should be taken to involve the youth in social work like planting trees, distributing relief among the helpless, teaching street children. As a result, just as the leisure of the youth will be cut positively, so will the society benefit through all these social activities.

In order to use the youth of the country as manpower, it is necessary to identify the problems of the youth and take effective measures accordingly. If this is possible, Bangladesh will be on the list of developed countries in the next few decades. If the youth is guided in the right direction, the country will benefit in all fields including education, industry and economy. National Youth Day is celebrated in Bangladesh on the 1st day of November every year. This is the expectation of all of us on Youth Day so that the youth of the country can be guided in the right direction and can make the country a prosperous one.
