Or because others do not yet share it, is an attitude that hinders progress."
It was with these words that Ashutosh Gowarikar made Swadesh, India’s first mainstream commercial film with its heart in the right place, when it talks about serving the nation. Yes, we have heard about Shahrukh Khan’s realistic portrayal of Mohan Bhargava, the project manager working with NASA who comes back to India, only to face ground realities.
Shahrukh’s was just a role, a performance. But, there are many inspiring performances and roles played by real life heroes - Indians who served the nation to make it what it is today.
It takes just a minute or few seconds to expose intelligent humans to the most inevitable and powerful truth in life but it takes years to prove the same.
And hey, we are alive and powerful. So let’s look around and listen to that cry of mother India, which is unheard. Choose your role and act appropriately.
We all have some responsibility towards our country, which we must understand and practice. Youth and nation have to walk hand in hand. Most importantly, the youth should be honest and hard working.
Youth should stand against all the wrong doings in the country. Instead of blaming the system, young India should come together and with their toil should mould our nation for a better tomorrow. We, the youth should use our brains, strength, creativity and imagination to serve our nation. Instead of asking, "Who’s going to fight the corruption?," we should do it ourselves. Rather than fighting upon the issues and ruining the country, we should learn to develop it.
I salute all those youths of the past who made an effort to make a difference.
We need to learn from yesterday and live with hopes for a better tomorrow. So we have to do our bit for the nation and be the change that we have always wanted.
