Can we utilise youth as agents of peace build and culture of nonviolence

Youth is a great power which shapes any country. Culture, Education, Jobs, Business and Thoughts, accepted by young population of any country decides the current and future condition of that country. Today India is the youngest country. Aprox. 21% of world’s youth population is in India, which is a huge percent. Youth constitute 41.05% of Indian population. This is highest population of youth than any other country has. Today India has tremendous source of potential and energy. Youth has zeal to initiate and be a part of change. This means an opportunity  to initiate steps for world peace and that through teachings of Mahatma Gandhi lies with India. 

 So why not divert emotional youth, why not utilize their impatience, why not answer their curiosity and why not make a way for their rebelliousness in a nonviolent process? Youth will decide the future of our country. They will build nonviolent, secure and peaceful society. Youth if educated and trained properly will make it happen.

Kirti welcome from Australia, my name is Garvin. I like your words.

Gandhi showed the World what Non-Violent Rebelliousness can achieve in the Dandi Yatra. The world sat up and took notice of the little man in the loincloth. As you say it certainly rests with the Youth of today. We saw a glimpse of it though in the world OCCUPY movement recently. Any Movement to go forward however must be based on Persistence..Persistence and a never give up mentality. (Gandhi certainly never gave up) I have been coming to India for the last few years, mostly in Assam where there is a Youth Uttam Teron who singlehandedly built up a School in a small Village Pamohi. He started from his family home with about 3 or 4 pre schoolers and now the school Parijat Academy has around 500 students up to Class 11. I live at the School inside Uttam,s office and we travel all over Assam to raise awareness of conditions of children and women. I have walked in many places of India to raise awareness of Gandhi and his methods of Satya and Ahimsa. In 2005 I walked in the 75th anniversary of the Dandi Yatra.

I am planning to come back to India in around October this year and I would love to assist you in a ground breaking rebelliousness of youth as per Gandhi's methods.

Please don't give up on your idea BUT it needs utmost Devotion and Persistence... Persistence

Sincerely

Garvin

You can utilize it, but in a proper way. It is so easy. First you conquered his faith, then you say for it. For this you must do it on proper way.

we can utilze it definately and it's a need for today

YOUTH IS THE BACKBONE OF THE NATION . THE PROGRESS OF FAMILY, SOCIETY,COUNTRY,AND THE WORLD DEPENDS UPON THE YOUTH  BUT ITS FOUNDATION LIES IN THE CHILDHOOD. IF WE ALL SHOW THE RIGHT PATH TO OUR CHILDREN THE PATH OF TRUTH ,NONVIOLENCE, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE OUR YOUTH POWER WILL GO TO THE RIGHT DIRECTION WHICH LEADS OUR NATION ON THE PATH OF PROGRESS

i fully agree with you on this issue as it is a huge opportunity that we have and we can certainly make use of this huge pool of youth available withus.have you got any concrete ideas as to how to go about it?

Namakar, Kirti Gunale ji. very excellent. I fully agree. Some days back i visit Gandhi Museum at Madurai. http://www.gandhimmm.org/ Discuss to concern Officer. Regarding Gandhian Peace Commando Force to Spread Peace, Sathiyam, Dharma. Based on Our Vedas, Spiritual, Gandhian Methods and etc., Youth have such power. we already done research about Potential of Youth Mind. wow Really Great Powers. Most of the achievers, Innovation happens during Youth time only. Now we are making methodology for this peace force, soon we start at Gandhi Museum at Madurai. Om Shanthi. 

1st thing we should change our education system,then 50% of the problem will be solved...

development in any country is recognized by tertiary education or higher education. India is far behind in this case.. according to  education statistics of tertiary enrollment (most recent) among 150 countries, India stands at 94 rank with 10.5% amount..India is a populous country..but the quality of of its human resource is low..to take the advantage of this growing population,there is the need of vast change in education system,,which should be based on quality dimension in place of increasing enrollment.,,then it will turned in to 'demographic dividend'.
