Strategies of youth empowerment
[ February 26, 2016 ]
There is no denying the fact that youth is the Vital and vibrant phase of human resource- and the human resource development is the most instrumental factor of the development of any nation. Convincingly, the importance of capacitation of this vibrant phase is of paramount importance as it leads to empower our youth to be productive and participatory in our phenomenon of development.
The success of a nation has its significant indicator in terms of human resource development index, which is majored in terms of how far our youth is empowered and skilled enough to participate in the development process. India is at its stage to enter the club of developed nations but the only deficiency is the difference in the youth empowerment factor as compared to Europe & the china. If we analyze the mechanics and the dynamics of the development in Europe and Japan the largest contributory factor is participation of youth equipped with professionalization, insight, commitment, sincerity, honesty and integrity in addition to community oriented approach. The development scientists in our country have found that our development model is not comprehensively convergent and integrated with participation of all the stakeholders to the satisfaction of desired results. This is why the government of India has emphasized upon participation of the people in the process of development to its maximum. 73rd constitutional amendment bill extending governance to the gross root level is one of the important disposition in this regard.
The government sector is working in alienation and the community in its divided and unconscious mode with no initiative and enterprise in the development, political leadership in its design of opportunism.
The perspective/vision envisaged in this novel disposition of handing over governance in the hands of people equipped with local knowledge, commitment does not reach its satisfaction because of the fact that our youth are not empowered/ skilled enough to deal with it as conceived by our lawmakers. We are still faced with fractious democracy, age-old mindset of dependency syndrome among our youth and there in accessibility to new ideas and areas of knowledge with conscious attitude. The government sector is working in alienation and the community in its divided and unconscious mode with no initiative and enterprise in the development, political leadership in its design of opportunism. In this connection, as a member of voluntary sector I suggest that Government should put together all the stakeholders on a common table to discuss and decide on integrated interventional enterprise to the satisfaction of evolving a program of developing and deploying employability and fruitfully doing away with the age-old mindset of government Nokeri and syndrome.
