KAKKANAD: Youngsters must have a clear view about the future of our country and they should have an aspiration to lift India to an envious position, said writer and critic M K Sanu.
He was speaking after inaugurating the International Youth Day organised by the District Youth Welfare Board in association with the Ernakulam district panchayat at the panchayat hall on Tuesday. Adding further he said,”youth have the responsibility to mould the future of India through political, social and cultural interventions.”
He also pointed out the history of nationalisation of banks in his speech. According to him, the socialist attitude adopted by Jawaharlal Nehru resulted in the nationalisation of banks. “The impact of globalisation and cyber revolution is immense as they have altered the basic character of communism, socialism and the world nations. In this changed scenario, the youngsters should have a clear picture about the future of our nation,” Sanu said.
Concluding his speech, he also asked the youngsters to stay away from panparag, ganja, tobacco and other intoxicants. The youngsters should possess the attitude to involve creatively in the social issues, he said.
