Why should youth participate in politics?

It has been lately observed that after the independence of our country, the sail of the ship was taken by the old and experienced generation which was definitely important at that point of time however, it is sad to see that the trend is still continuing. While some wants to be a doctor, engineer, fashion designer, businessman there is a dearth of young bloods that are vocal about the fact that they want to be a politician.

When someone says – Politics, even though the word has a literal sense but all that we have grasped over the period of time about ‘politics” is – corruption, scams, and fake promises. However, don’t you really think that even the word has its right to have a true meaning? Can we take politics, beyond? What it is perceived as? May be we should. So, why should we really take the charge? Here are the answers.

Vocal about youth – A youth would understand the youth, and if you truly seek for development in service sectors of private spheres, you have to get into politics. There are issues about youth, that go unheard and if you want to give that strata of the society a voice, then this is the way.

Fresh blood – The roots of politics are rotten and you can be that freshness to drive the rot away. Fresh blood in the system means, aliveness, energy, fresher ideas, fresher talent and most importantly fresh moves towards the development.

Education – Now, education is one of the crucial elements that our representatives on the panel of politics lack. But if the younger generation decided to enter politics, we can expect decency and moreover educated leaders taking the country to another height. Education in a way plays a huge role in shaping the perception, and if we are aiming towards growth our leaders must have broader perceptions that would match at the global platform.

Role model – We admire actors, actresses, cricketers, writers, anchors, and so on but very less of us actually admire a politician. Entering of youngsters into the politics can certainly give us a role model to look upon. He or she can inspire million other youth to change the system by being into it. Our country needs a young leader terrible to guide us and make the Adeline rush to be felt once again.

Nurturing talent – There is no equal distribution of development and opportunities in our country however, there is somewhere a hope that if youth began to enter into politics the scenario might change. They will be able to channelize the talent of younger generation in a lot better away. Lots of people, especially youngsters fly abroad because of dearth in scope and opportunities and who can understand this situation better than the one who belongs to the younger crowd?

We definitely want to see the change in this system which is on the verge of its death then why can’t we be the change that all of us in longing for?
