Youth’s role in progress of Balochistan
For sure, development is the basic criterion of every nation as nobody wants to go backward or remain the same. So like-wise everyone wants development, achievement, improvement and growth in their lives. And the most responsible and essential agent of progress are youth. They have the power to bring changes in their country, they have the ability to confront challenges and problems and they have the ability to lead their nation into the right direction. Beside these, they are also considered warriors born to come up changes in their respective walks of life, in the framework of their society and that of their country, over all. By Bahram Sayad
Once a great writer said that ‘’development is the basic criterion of every nation as nobody wants to go backward or remains same. So like-wise everyone wants development, achievement, improvement and growth in their lives. When there is development in the lives of people then that country will itself get developed. It is not because of the country but the people of it who bring progress and improvement in the country. All the people in the country are responsible for its development but the most responsible and essential agent of progress are youth’’. Well, before going to the depth of the topic I would like to define the word ‘’youth’’. This is the age of discovery, dream, determination, confidence and courage. They have the power to bring changes in their country, they have the ability to confront challenges and problems and they have the ability to lead their nation into the right direction. Beside these, they are also considered warriors. Because they fight against inequality, poverty, unemployment and for other problems which their nation faces. However, when we see the title of the topic then we can have several points to write on this.
Anyhow, Balochistan is the most neglected and underdeveloped province of Pakistan. Because in 1948 the Army of Pakistan has forcefully taken over the control of Baluchistan. They have done this in order to exploit the natural resources of Balochistan and from till the day today, the residents of Balochistan are in deep trouble and they are also deprived of their basic rights. So now everyone is responsible for the development of Baluchistan but the most responsible agent of change are the youth of Baluchistan. As once a great philosopher and a Balochi poet explicitly said that youth are the hope of tomorrow. Youth of Baluchistan have to play many roles for the progress of Baluchistan and also they have to face various difficulties and hardship. They can play a significant role in the development of Baluchistan not only economically but also morally and physically. We are in the know that Baluchistan is in extreme danger and in a tough situation. I guess the first step that the youth as a whole have to take is to educate themselves and their all nation. If youth can be motivated and educated in the right way, they surely can spread the progress of a nation and make their province developed and a better place to live. So when they are educated and civilized then they can easily unite the people and they can keep peace in their nation.
So, for this there is dire need of Government help but unfortunately we don’t have that. We are on a hopeless journey but still we have to try to make efforts for the betterment and development of our society, nation and province. For example, there are many great leaders who used their abilities and skills by showing extra-ordinary courage in order to come up with a tremendous transformation. The youth of Baluchistan also need to use their skills, courage and ability to make their nation and province developed.
Deep-down, youth are considered problem-solvers in true scope and our nation needs them to resolve most of our problems. Our nation is facing a lot of crisis, and I just believe that only the youth are capable of solving them. There are many problems, namely, the rapidly growing terrorism which has a lot of adverse effects on our province. All over the province poverty has increased and people do not have any basic necessities of life. It is estimated that more than 10,000 people die in Baluchistan because of poverty. There is as well a shortage of educational institutions and students are in trouble. And racism is another ongoing issue in our nation. People are fighting against each other owning to the cost, color and shape. And radicalization of religion is the biggest issue that our nation confronts today. So, to shine as a problem-solver, the youth are the only one who can convince the people to live with peace and love. They have the ability to create an identity for themselves and move the nation towards development. In conclusion, I just want to say that now we must not wait for the government that she will give us our rights. Now the time has come to make Baluchistan a developed province and lead the province towards a stage where it will be able to provide all basic rights of life to everyone. And for this everyone in the province has to play his or her role.
