Students’ Role in Nation Building
The future of any country depends upon its students. A country’s name and fame rest on the educated youth. In other words, the students are the real treasure of any country. They are more important for a country like India. If the energy of the students is directed to constructive purposes, the whole country will taste the all round development. Some great man has rightly said,” Give me the children and I will change the nation.” A nation can progress if its youth is sincere and educated. So most of it depends upon the students.
India is fortunate that more than 60% of the total population of the country are young men. And most of them are the students. These young people can do a lot in the development work of the country. They can do a lot of tasks for giving their contribution to this development.
There a large no of illiterate people in the country. Students can teach these illiterate people of their neighborhood, nearby localities and in the villages. They can start many awareness programmes in the country. They can tell the people about the importance of cleanliness in the life.
They can become the role model in this connection by demonstrating it in their own life. They can take out rallies to create awareness about many issues such as Drug Addiction, Save Daughter- Educate Daughter, Crime against Women, Corruption etc.
Our PM Narendra Modi is talking about Skilled India, Digital India, Make in India etc. Students can do a lot in realizing this dream and making India technically sound. The students have natural instincts about the latest technology and its use. These technically-savvy students can help the grown-up people in using the latest technology such as Internet, Mobiles etc.
The expectations from the students are very high. In order to meet such expectations, the students will have to be morally, mentally and healthily sound. Weak students can’t do any thing for themselves, what will they do for the country? They need to be ideals – ideal students, ideal doctors, ideal lawyers, ideal teachers, ideal leaders and ideal citizens.
The students must follow suit of great people of all countries and all ages. They must get inspiration from them. The people like Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose, Mother Teresa must be their role models.
The students must also know that honesty is the best policy and hard work is the only key to success. They must adopt such ideals in their lives. They must always bear it in their mind that if they are good, the country shall itself become good. Their country has given them everything, in return they will have pay back something. For some dollars, don’t leave your country. Stay here, serve it and do your duties toward it. In short, students are the real future of the country.
