Politics deserves to be accepted as a profession with a changed mind-set
"The middle class intelligent youth need to be motivated for accepting politics as a career instead of the rat race for becoming an engineer, doctor, charted accountant or a bureaucrat. The politics deserve to be accepted as a profession with a changed mind-set," opined Professor (Dr) MM Goel, Vice-Chancellor, Jagan Nath University, Jaipur while addressing the staff and students of Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Senior Secondary School here on Saturday on the topic 'Empowerment of Youth for Career in Politics'.

Time has come when politics cannot be treated as an art and science of making excuses and doing wrong things. India needs ethical politicians in power and opposition who knows to debate and discuss the issues in and out of parliament and state assemblies without war of words, said Vice Chancellor Goel.

To avoid bemoaning the low standards of politicians including history sheeters with criminal records, we need to be motivated for encouraging political morality with honest and law abiding youth to become politicians. Indian democracy needs empowerment of youth as a national issue of 2019 elections in tune with the implementation of National Youth Policy 2014, said Vice Chancellor  Goel.

The Indian youth need to become street SMART (simple, moral, action oriented, responsive and transparent) along with SIMPLE model of youth empowerment consisting of six human development activities such as spiritual quotient (SQ) development, intuition development, mental level development, love oneself attitude development and emotional quotient (EQ) development. The synergy of these six aspects is essential requirement for the youth to emerge and realize its full potential in politics as a career, explained Vice Chancellor Goel. 

Being street smart does not mean one is 'unintelligent'.  A street smart person believe that value lies in knowing things. Reading things are not street wise or wish to be more so. It cannot be denied that the books smarts are indeed smart. We find some of the brainiest and most knowledgeable people around us. They may be book smart and can be described as 'exam smart', or 'academically smart' also, told Goel.

Earlier Principal Dharminder Khera welcomed & introduced the distinguished speaker. Shri Pawan Garg President of the managing committee proposed the vote of thanks.
