A great historian and socialist thinker Howard Zinn once said,
“Protest beyond the law is not a departure from democracy; it is absolutely essential to it.”
Youth-led movements have increased tremendously in the recent times. But its not just today’s world where youth-led movements and protests have become so important. Even years ago there were many movement led by the young souls of our nation. One of the best examples is the 1974 Railway Strike led by George Fernandez.
The voice of the youth is crucial for the effectiveness of service by the government. It has a powerful impact on the politics the country.
Here’s what the youngsters feels about politics in India.
“I feel there’s nothing more influential than politics. For me, especially, it reflects the moral ground of people. In India, sadly, politics is overpowered by the fuel of caste and religion. Here, it’s tangled with ethnicity and creed, which is manipulated and overused by those who come into power. It’s about the ones who govern and how they make it. It’s no more about justice, equality or even mere humanity, in the current times. So be that Akhlaq, Rohit Vermula or a bazillion others, all struggle to still seek justice, under the scenario of Indian politics,” says Debolina, a journalism student at Bennett University, Greater Noida.
Abhay Sharma, another student at Bennett University says, “Politics in India is simply based on religion and corruption. But all this cannot be hidden from the eyes of this generation. Youth is playing a very important and crucial role in controlling the corruption done by politicians. Mostly if we see, the people who raise their voices against the bad done by the government are usually under the age of 30 (ignoring the opposition parties), because we belong to a major population.”
Abhay also feels that since this generation is being well educated they have a better vision and understanding about the politics in the current scenario.
“No country is a perfect country. As citizens of a democratic country, it is our duty to challenge the wrongdoings of the government and that is the first step towards bringing change,” says Abhay.
“Youth is definitely becoming more aware and woke but at the same time the extremism is rising. Country looks united and divided at the same time,” says Radha Vekhande, a copywriter for an e-commerce app named Bulbul.

It is pretty much clear that the youth understands the manipulation done by the political parties in our countries. The youngsters being the future of our country are the only reliable changemakers and they are living for it.

Inzamam feels that the Virat Kohli-led India have a greater chance of winning the trophy as the conditions in the Gulf nations are similar to the subcontinent, which makes India the most dangerous side in the event, according to Inzamam.
"In any tournament, it cannot be said for certain that a particular team will win' It's all about how much chance do they have of winning it. In my opinion, India have a greater chance than any other team of winning this tournament, especially in conditions like these. They have experienced T20 players as well," said Inzamam on his YouTube channel.
He said more than the Indian batters, the bowlers have a lot of experience of playing in the conditions. The Indian Premier League (IPL) was played recently in UAE and most of the Indian bowlers did well in that leg.
Inzy heaped praises on the Men in Blue for the confident manner in which they chased the target against Australia on a challenging track without needing Kohli's batting prowess.
"India played their warm-up fixture against Australia rather comfortably. On subcontinent pitches like these, India are the most dangerous T20 side in the world. Even today, if we see the 155 runs they chased down, they did not even need Virat Kohli to do so," he added.
Though he did not pick any favourite, Inzamam termed the India-Pakistan clash in the Super 12 on October 24 as the 'final before the final' and said the team winning it will go into the remaining matches high on morale,
"The match between India and Pakistan in the Super 12s is the final before the final. No match will be hyped as much as this one. Even in the 2017 Champions Trophy, India and Pakistan started and finished the tournament by facing each other, and both the matches felt like finals. The team winning that match will have their morale boosted and will also have 50 percent of pressure released from them," Inzamam added. (IANS/JB)

Take a look at the ideal times to moisturise your body shared by Kimi Jain, Head of Retail, KIMRICA.

Research has shown that the skin effectively repairs itself from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. That's why you should always make sure to moisturise your skin on or before this time. Also, it has been observed that the skin's trans-epidermal water loss increases during sleep which takes away plenty of moisture from the skin. So, all these reasons make it quite clear as to why you should always moisturise your body before going to sleep.
Workout sessions are often sweaty and tiring but preparing your skin before stepping out is very important as exercising outside often leads to dryness. Applying light-weight body lotion before your session is recommended. (IANS/ MBI)
