Young Indians conducts webinar in association with Confederation of Indian Industry and The Bhawanipur Education Society College.
A recent virtual session of The Future Youth Conclave 2021 focused on how to bring the youth in India together and employ them in productive work to shape the country’s future.
The session titled ‘India at 75 Transiting to India at 100: Road Ahead for Youth’ was hosted by Young Indians, an industry-led youth movement in India, in association with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and The Bhawanipur Education Society College.
On the panel were Rajan Navani, chairman of the CII; Arun Maira, management consultant and a former member of the Planning Commission of India; and Shankar Vanavarayar, joint correspondent-president of the Kumaraguru College of Technology.
Highlighting how young people act as drivers of change, Navani said, “The mantle keeps moving from one generation to another. Only the youth can drive the country forward. They have already brought new energy to the start-up ecosystem of the country.”
He emphasised the importance of a nationwide youth movement to create a youth culture in the country. “It takes a small number of people to start a movement and that is what we all need. The social sector should be repowered by committed people coming from the ranks of young people in India,” he said.
Ruing the lack of social and economic freedom even after 75 years of independence, Maira said only the youth in India could resolve the situation. “Many Indians don’t enjoy social and economic freedom. Young people must dedicate themselves to ensuring social and economic freedom for everyone,” he explained.
He also said that India was blessed with the largest number of young people in the world. “Our youth must be able to earn for themselves before providing service to others. They should create a new India,” he added.
In his speech, Vanavarayar stressed how the future actually reflects the past. “We should acknowledge the struggles and achievements of the past. It’s important to imagine the future. What happens between one August 15 and the next August 15 actually builds India. We should selflessly work for the country to ensure better tomorrow,” he said.
