Youth is all about the Youth factor

What exactly is youth? Is it merely a term used to address someone who is young? Is being youth an age specific thing? What are the attributes of a youth? What are the things that don’t tantamount to being a youth? What does the Youth factor stand for? In a larger perspective, what are the expectations from the youth? On this day of Swami Vivekananda Jayanti, which is celebrated as a Youth day, this blog is an attempt to define ‘Youth’ from my point of view.

Youth is about confidence, youth is about positivity, youth is about energy, youth is about hope, youth is about dream, youth is about openness, youth is about freedom, youth is about revolution, youth is about courage, youth is about enthusiasm, youth is about zeal to learn, youth is about passion for excelling, youth is about commitment, youth is about dedication, youth is about happiness, youth is about faith and youth is all about liveliness.

Youth is not about drugs, youth is not about alcohol, youth is not about participating in crimes, youth is not about disrespecting others, youth is not about running away from the problems, youth is not about losing hopes and committing suicides, youth is not about suffering and tolerating the wrongdoing, youth is not about hatred, youth is not about show-offs and youth is definitely not about forgetting the real world by getting engrossed in the virtual world.

According to me, “Youth is the Youth factor in You”. Now you must be eager to know what does this Youth factor actually means. Well, the “Youth factor means believing in the You that is in You”. It’s all about self-belief. Youth has nothing to do with the age. It’s our belief that makes and keeps us young. “Be young in your thoughts and let the age envy you”. Till the time, the flame of all the essential attributes is ignited within us we are youth, “irrespective of our age”. The day these characteristics die inside us, we cease to be a youth anymore. So, it is totally a self-choice whether or not one wants to be a youth.

Many a time, we come across people who are young at age, but, at the same time, they are also a pool of negativity. Now, will it be right to denote such negative souls as Youth? And, then there are a lot many of senior citizens, who bring with them an electrifying energy of positivity. So aren’t these senior citizens still young, in spite of their ages? Hence, it’s all about one’s attitude that keeps them young until the time they want to be like that. It is rightly said that age is just a number.

It would not be wrong if I say that “Expectation and Youth are like synonyms”. A youth is an arrival of a new dawn of hopes and aspirations, a youth is expected to make the dreams come true, a youth is a means to achieve the ends, a youth is looked upon as the source of energy, a youth is a medium to bring about the positive changes in the world, a youth is a helping hand for those in needs and an armour for the sufferers, a youth is an opportunity for the elders to witness the fulfilment of their wishes.

The world has a lot of hope, expectations, and confidence on the youth. Let the dreams come true by our hard work and let us all work together to make this world a peaceful, progressive and a happy place to live in.

At the end, I would like to express my heartfelt wishes to all of you on this occasion of Swami Vivekananda Jayanti and Youth day. Do ensure that the ‘Youth factor’ inside you never fades away.

Be Young, Be Lively! God Bless you all.

A writer at heart and creative at art. Someone who wants his words to leave an impact. Someone who is hungry for genuine feedback and not the number of likes. The thought behind my writing has always been to revolutionize the thought process which is overpowered with the set obsolete parameters, as well as, to bring into life, a new perspective towards everything around us. When I am penning down these lines, the beautiful composition by Mr. Dushyant Kumar Tyagi strikes my mind, "Sirf hungama khada karna mera maksad nahi, Meri koshish hai ki yeh soorat badalni chahiye; Merey seeney mein nahi to terey seeney mein sahi, Ho kahin bhi aag lekin aag jalni chahiye". The meaning of this verse (in my words) is that - My only motive is not of rabble-rousing, but my efforts are directed towards bringing about a change; I want the fire of awareness to lit somewhere, if not in my heart then maybe in yours, but the fire has to lit. Readers are a writer’s strength and one of the motivating factors that keep the writer always alive. All the honest readers are undoubtedly the unbiased mirror of a writer’s content. Hope the readers like my blogs and could correlate with them. It will be an honour if the readers are able to gain something worth from my write ups. At the same time, it will be my pleasure to know your honest views. Each and every single feedback is highly appreciated. So do not hesitate to comment with utmost truth in your words. Keep reading and keep learning. I wish you all a very healthy, happy and a prosperous life. Love to all. Be in touch. Take care and God Bless!
