Youth can bring change in Pakistan

Farheen Sagheer

Pakistan is a developing country and youth in Pakistan makes up about 35% of its total population. In the midst of crunching times, when Pakistan is facing severe issues such as terrorism, economic crisis, target killings, corruption and disunity, besides intrigues and plots being perpetrated by anti-Pakistan forces to destabilise Pakistan, the burden to take the country out of the whirlpool is upon its young people. The Pakistani youth have embarked on the train of destiny that takes its passengers on the path towards development. Alongside the changing trends in 21st century, problems of Pakistani youth have started to dwindle.
The world is in a continuous process of change and so it brings with it distinctive features in which modernization in youth is of prime importance. As globalization took place, it became harder for teachers, leaders and parents to further hold back youth in homes. These students found their way to their demands. The supply had always been short but this time these young Pakistanis created their own demand and became their own suppliers. They have started to negate the old irrational conventions that have been down streaming their lives. Through the use of media, internet and self right realization; these rising humans instilled with great zeal and zest, have found a common point where they could lead their lives with cultural and contemporary trends.
Talented Pakistani youth has started to bring in more innovation and novel ideas than those given by the matured ones. The science has led older people to understand that after living a life of forty years and above, the brain gradually loses its potential to produce something new and revolutionary. Now we see the youth working and excelling in almost every field in Pakistan. From education to performing arts, to fine arts, to medicine, to engineering, to politics; you would not find a place where these young talented people are not functioning. Every day they bring in new ideas such as street art competitions, sports events, debates, magazines, public relations and the list goes on. A new trend has started to emerge in Pakistani youth i.e. the power to speak. About a decade ago, young people were shy to express their ideas and initiatives. But nowadays, the youth are more confident and are participating in every walk of life more enthusiastically than the previous generation. The elders of today also appreciate talent, the potential and initiative of the youth and encourage them. Talent, potential, energy and latest skills acquired by the youth supported by the experience of the elders can make real miracles, in leading the country towards new heights.
