Use youth power

Bhutan Times - - Editorial -

Even though youth forms the ma­jor­ity of the pop­u­la­tion in Bhutan but still they are lack­ing be­hind in terms of any­thing. The world is chang­ing fast at a rapid speed and the youth has to keep paced to do some­thing for the coun­try or for them. It’s a 21st cen­tury and it is the youth that is con­sid­ered the cream of the so­ci­ety.

Tech­nolo­gies which are more ad­vanced are com­ing up ev­ery af­ter year; to make work eas­ier and pro­duc­tive. Youths are wanted to do some­thing but are re­luc­tant. They say to­mor­row but re­mem­ber to­mor­row never comes. It’s to­day that youth need to show, use tal­ent for the good of the coun­try.

Youth are the fu­ture of our coun­try. They are very lucky enough to be born in Bhutan where our kings have im­mense wis­dom. Drugs are the main fac­tor which has now a day has mar­ket and youths in­dul­gence. “Say No to drugs young peo­ple”.

What peo­ple of de­vel­oped coun­tries have are with us and it’s just that they are de­vel­oped and we are in de­vel­op­ing stage but noth­ing is im­pos­si­ble. Please break the im­pos­si­ble word in three words it be­comes,” I’m pos­si­ble”. Mark this word. Never feel shy or hes­i­tate to do any kind of job whether it is blue col­lar or any.

It’s an ex­pe­ri­ence that counts; at least if youth has ex­pe­ri­ence do­ing some­thing, they will be rec­og­nized. Bhutan has just about 7, 50,000 pop­u­la­tion which is very less com­par­ing to other coun­tries. Youth it’s high time we make our coun­try more pro­duc­tive.

We have re­sources, ma­te­ri­als, etc. but no one is us­ing their so called brain for what is to be done. Many youths find them­selves play­ing video games; in­stead of that why don’t you in­dulge learn­ing pro­duc­tive ideas which could be more ef­fec­tive than play­ing games.

Youth’s also dropout from their school and waste time and re­sources. Youth should do some­thing pro­duc­tive work it’s only for our own na­tion. Our coun­try is fa­mous for Gross Na­tional Hap­pi­ness but many peo­ple are aware of it.

We should urge youths to do some­thing even not for a na­tion but for them. Thim­phu is grow­ing city which will be one of the most beau­ti­ful cities in the world and our youth should be ready to carry out any kind of task. We don’t have even cloths man­u­fac­tur­ing fac­to­ries which are very sim­ple if we try it out.

Our neigh­bor­ing coun­try such as Nepal, In­dia and Bangladesh are now in the run, let’s make our na­tion on top of the world. Bhutan is con­sid­ered as a na­tion where Bud­dhism is revered. Youth must take in mind the phi­los­o­phy of GNH and be a pro­duc­tive cit­i­zen.
