JAWAN PAKISTAN (Young Pakistan)

JAWAN PAKISTAN (Young Pakistan)

Pakistan we have an amazing chance to make our country a top global leader, or we slip into an irreversible decline. Read the article and decide which direction you want the country to go!

Let me start with a powerful inspirational story.

This short story is quite simple yet delivers a powerful message.

A professor once asked his students to prepare for an unusual surprise test. The students got excited and waited eagerly for the test to begin. The professor distributed test papers with the text facing down. Once he handed them all out, he asked the students to turn over the papers. To everyone’s surprise, there was just a black dot in the center of the paper and rest of the paper was blank.

The professor then demanded, “I want you to write about what you see there.”
The confused students then began on the inexplicable task.

At the end of the class, the professor read all the entries, and made these sage observations:

  • Everyone focused on the black dot
  • People obsessed over the size and location of this dot
  • No one wrote about the white space that is the rest of the paper
    We are all given a blank sheet in life, yet we always focus on the
    dark spot.

Even though the paper had a tiny black dot, everyone focused their entire energy on it. Unfortunately, this is true about our lives as well. We get so down and depressed over a small detail of our lives, and we often overlook how great our lives are in general. Sadly speaking, these black dots deteriorate our minds, and people tend to focus on the negatives rather than the positives.

Pakistan faces many challenges these days. Instead of a single black dot, there are several black spots constituting challenges such as unemployment, economic crisis, corruption, and disunity. Despite all these issues, many people continue to say that “Pakistan’s has a very bright future due to the overwhelming population size of our youth.”

The world is in a continuous process of change in which modernization of a nation’s youth becomes a prime importance. The youth of a nation can shape the future if trained, educated and informed in an optimum style.

The youth of a nation can shape the future if trained, educated and informed in an optimum style.

I strongly believe the 3E’s will mark the future of youth’s peaks and troughs:

  • Quality education
  • Gainful employment
  • Meaningful engagement

If Pakistan can provide these basic building stones for our youth, then our children will be empowered to reach their full potential. If we as a nation deny these foundation pieces, then our youth will turn to anger, anguish and lose hope for a brighter future.

We all believe in this simple, unequivocal truth: the youth are a powerful force, possibly the most powerful force for transformational change. With their demographic size and their fresh ideas and energy, they can lead the way to sustainable human development if provided with a conducive environment.

There’s a very famous quote by Mary Kay Ash:

In the world, there are three categories of people:

  • Those who ‘make’ things happen
  • Those who ‘watch’ things happen
  • Those who ‘wonder’ what happened.

Those who ‘make’ things happen are the doers. Those who ‘watch’ things happen are the wishers. Those who ‘wonder’ what happened are those who are indifferent about the happenings in the society; anything goes for them.

The successful ones are those who make things happen. Passion drives them, and their dreams fuel them. They are determined to take action and make a difference.

There is no doubt that Pakistanis are well known for their hard work, but we are also notorious for having little “balance” in our lives. Each child needs to create a balance between his internal dynamics and external influences.

The monumental challenges our youth face in education, employment and engagement or not entirely insurmountable. However, no single silver bullet leads to significant changes. We have to engage in a swarm of small steps that will add up to shift and transform the direction of negative trends.

The young professionals working across Pakistan have more innovative and novel ideas than our mature professionals. Their excellence is due to the rise of technology in Pakistan. The youth are excelling in films, engineering, arts, medicine, and politics. It’s hard not to find a place where our youth is not shining. Pakistan must do everything in its power to reinforce this positive direction and fund more educational opportunities for so many more children to reach the same levels of success.

We absolutely must take our need of the hour seriously. Our thoughts and actions today will shape how Pakistan will be in the future. Our children depend on us to make the right decisions NOW to develop their generations and future generations in the right direction.

In today’s Pakistan, the youth has an opportunity to prove their worth; however, they MUST:

“Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.”
~Clint Eastwood

Let’s infect the world with our passion and courage. Be proactive. Stop procrastinating. Take action to achieve your dreams. Start now.

    Sensible! This article offers an insightful and thoughtful perspective. Certainly, we humans think like that “black dot ” because of our mental limitations but neglect that the Universe in which we are living has no boundries. On the contrary, there are some factors which are influencing the overall personality of an esucated, employed and engaged youngster of Pakista. Soon I will reveal as I am the part of this society. Regards!
