Fading flowers: The youth of Pakistan is in peril

Fading flowers: The youth of Pakistan is in peril


Someone has rightly said that if anyone wants to damage a society, firstly he should make its educational system ineffectual for all and then make the youth unemployed, all of which our society is facing right now.
Pakistan’s history begins from 1947, when this nameless region of South Asia appeared as a country over the map of the world and we were introduced as an independent nation.  Since coming into occurrence, we have continuously faced an assortment of crisis till today – after completing 70 years of independence.
The age group, which has suffered a lot of difficulties, during this worthless journey, is the youth of the country. Improper education facilities, unemployment and disgraceful social behaviours are the mainstream causes, which have restricted the youth of our country prospering in any field of their lives.
Undoubtedly, in many countries of the world, youth is called the pillar of the nation, as they hold capabilities of performing the duties and responsibilities of a mentor in society. Those communities, where youth are encouraged, are among the most prosperous and developed communities of the world our society is exactly contrary to such types of well off societies.
From birth to marriage, a young male or female endlessly faces troubles step by in all aspects of life. If they belong to a very deprived family then they might not even obtain proper primary education, which is one of the main reasons behind the increasing illiteracy rate in the country. If fortunately they get primary education, they are unable to afford secondary higher education as they are part of a family where earning is an essential facet for everyone and resources are limited for everyone.
In case, they strive hard to complete higher studies, they are caught in the whirlwind of finding a job and this is the very last step of their struggle for knowledge. There are innumerable educated youth in our country, who are unable to take any advantage from any of the government schemes that are assembled for providing the youth a comfortable life but sorry to say, all these efforts by the government will not be able to overturn the doom of our youth.
Basically, our government has never fashioned any appropriate and fair mechanism of facilitating the youth. All the schemes and programmes, which are initiated to promote the youth are established to give them an opportunity to engender livelihood resources, and are bleak because the purpose behind the making of these schemes is actually to offer benefits to government officials.
No one can envision the impacts of unemployment in our societies, a large number of youngsters are committing suicides and sometimes killing all of their family members and then committing suicide. In many cases, jobless people in Pakistan have started selling their body parts and even their children to amass fundamental needs of their innocent families.
Negligence of concerned authorities has led to inept people using illicit means to acquire key posts in almost every government department, which causes difficulties for the deprived but more competent youth of our society to come forward and get the job on merit.
Our leadership knows better about the deficiencies of our educational system but chooses to ignore the drowning state of this sector. Until they take the right decisions and kick off sincere efforts timely, no one can change the condition of our society.
Moreover, we the youth need to accelerate ourselves by making progress in the field of science and technology and make national level forums for the entire youth of the country to promote and strengthen genius and capable youth of this land.
