Indian youth is the going through life on autopilot. Why? The main reason for this is that they are blindfolded by the system. Education should open up the minds of the people, instead of that it is putting pressure to pass the paper. But this article doesn’t have to do anything with that. It is to make youth know what they are dealing with in their life. So, here’s a little hard truth for you.
Firstly, be happy with what you got, because the owners of this country don’t want that. I am talking about the real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. What? Did you think politicians make all the important decisions? In reality, the politicians are just put there to you give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. Well, you don’t, you have no choice. Like it or not, you have owners.
These business interests own all the important land. They own and control the corporation. They have long since bought and paid for the members of parliament, the state houses, the city halls, they got judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies so that they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want!
We know that, they want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But, do you know what they don’t want? They don’t people which are capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They want obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.
Look around, they’ve turned this beautiful place into what it is today. A shopping mall, mile after mile of mall after mall. And what do you see in between these major malls? You see mini marts, and in between the mini marts you have car parking, gas stations, cheap hotels, fast food joints and dirty bookstores. And how does people think about all this, they think it is as cool as it can be. Indians love the malls. That’s where they get to satisfy their two most prominent addictions- Shopping and Eating.
So, don’t you think all these people actually made you a person who is just good enough for the paperwork? What are we actually doing today? We are focusing on getting that 75% attendance (which is actually hard, jokes apart) and cramming to get 60% marks. People now are just creative when they work on their resume. Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is? No, either you want that government job or you want to be rich. It seems like people have accepted this form of living. I am not here to judge you but i think you are better than that. This is why the title of this article is Indian youth is going through life on autopilot.
India is the greatest country among all, but it’s value is degraded because youngsters doesn’t focus to end this system and continue to follow rat race. Just for your concern, India is 168th in literacy, 125th in life expectancy, 113th in infant mortality and 21st in exports. We lead the world in one category which is having the largest livestock population. Felt bad, right? Things are changing fast and the sad part is, people are losing integrity. I still remember the time when people used to stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reasons, we struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty not poor people who sacrificed. We cared about our neighbors. We sure used to be the greatest.
Now who is going to change the system? It’s your turn now. It’s time for you to take the responsibility of your circumstances and your country. Most people will find it hard to accept but the truth is, you are lying on your bed complaining about the system of India and blaming life for not giving you an opportunity. Time for the excuses are over, it’s time to wake up.
You don’t have to do anything heroic for the country. All you have to do is make yourself push out of this system. Don’t just settle for that job. That’s what they want. I know that you have to pay the bills. Create a plan now and decide where you want to be. Just work on your passion. It won’t take long until your “passion income” far exceeds your “have-to income”. Do whatever you have to do until you can do what you want to do. That’s the change we need. Figure out what you love, make an idea to put it into existence and do whatever it takes to make it work. This is time when youth should start working on their dreams in order to bring India to the top again!
And if you think that you need a perfect idea to start something, then you are wrong. Things don’t always go as planned. But the most important thing is to just start. And in the mean time when you start exploring things, i am sure your purpose will begin to become clear. Many people have a fantastic idea in the evening but in the morning they go the office again. Just quit the system and make better one. That’s what our nation needs the most right now. Be the Change.
So comment down the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about your purpose. It’ll help other people to help figuring out what they want out of life! In the end, i just want to say-
