“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.

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.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
