Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan has conveyed his greetings to the youth on the eve of National Youth Day (January 12) and said it is time the youth of India built an India full of freedom and opportunity and without fear or prejudice.

 

Dr. JP pointed out that 73 percent of Indians are below 35 years of age and the youth account for 92 percent of person years. “The youth today have idealism, passion and ability. The present generation is second to none in its capacity to build the country. And for the first time in human history, the present generation has the resources and technology to realize its dreams. Building a society that ensures opportunities for every child to realize its potential and eliminates all avoidable suffering should be the duty and responsibility of every young India. In the present age and day, there shall be no discrimination against any child on the basis of its birth circumstances or its region or religion, caste or language or even nationality.”

 

The youth, Dr. JP said, should take inspiration from Rabindranath Tagore, who said, “Let my country awake into that heaven of freedom, Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments By narrow domestic walls”
