It is an indisputable fact that today’s younger generation has to lead tomorrow’s India. But does our young India understand this seriousness? If not it is important for every one of us to discuss this issue on a variety of platforms so that the message reaches our youth.
Leaders are not born. We can create leaders in any field. To be a leader education is not a mandatory element. We can find out leaders from among the urban educated till the alienated working class in rural India.
Notwithstanding the above fact, it is indispensable on the part of educational institutions and parents to identify their children for their talent and mentor them and lead them to be the leaders of tomorrow.
It doesn’t mean that the youth will need handhold at every step. It becomes their reciprocal responsibility to pursue the following course of life to become true leaders of tomorrow.
