Let’s Ignite a Spark.

In 2016, China changed its One-Child Policy to Two-Child Policy. But Why? Why Do giants like Apple, LG, Samsung make their products in China?

The Reason is, China has an amazingly low labour cost and this labor is well-skilled as well as hardworking. But through the course of time, they have realized that with the passing generation young labours are becoming older and less productive. What is the leading cause of this deterioration? One Child Policy. Due to One-Child policy, They will not have enough population of young individuals resulting in less and less productivity. That’s the major reason, they have changed their policy.

What about India? India is the youngest country in the world, in terms of average age. We already have 63cr young people, who can change the country.
The task we have at our hand is to Ignite a spark in them, motivate them to keep going and do their great things. So, Here I would like to share three quotes said by legends with stories related to it, Which Ignite the spark in youth to cross the ‘Aukaaat’(Limits).

1. Short Story Of Mahabharata.

Who was the most unique character in the Mahabharata War? Maybe all have different opinions according to their perspective. But Somehow, I strongly believe that “Karna” is a perfect answer to that question. If you don’t comply, then here’s a thing, think, why did Duryodhana give him a state, where he was not even willing to give a piece of lands to his brothers? Why Had Even lord Krishna ordered Arjun to kill him when he was trying to pull-out stuck wheel of his chariot? Why didn’t Bhishma allow him to fight in the initial days of the war? And even think why did he waste his achievement ‘Brahmastra’?

Everyone knows, Karna was born to Kunti as a bless from Sun, But Unfortunately, he had to grow up in Sooda Family. His father was the chariot driver of Bhishma.
Maybe Karna was the first one, who did his study in Self-Financed Institute, “Parshuram University”, instead of the Institute operated under the state of Hastinapur, “Drona University”.

During the official competition of Hastinapur between Kauravas and Pandavas, Karna entered on to the ground and asked to take a part in that competition. Drona strictly said that it is the competition of Princes, not for the son of chariot driver.
At the time, Karna replied Drona. And this is the first quote of Our article.

He replied.

“दैवायत्तं कुले जन्म मदायत्तं तु पौरुषम्.”

that means, “Whether I am a weaver or his son, whoever or whatever I am, the birth in this family was given by my Daiva or fate. But the prowess and power I have accomplished are by my own self.”

The moral of the sentence is … it doesn’t matter whether you were born in the rich family or poor family, as a black or white, male or female, privileged or unprivileged; what matters is what you make of the life you are given.

2. Story Of Dashrath Manjhi.

Dashrath Manjhi, widely known as the “Mountain Man”, was a poor laborer in Gehlaur village, near Gaya in Bihar, India.

In the 1960s Dashrath Manjhi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) lived in a small village Gehlaur near Gaya, Bihar, India with his family including his wife Phaguniya Devi (Radhika Apte) and his son. There was a rocky mountain near his village that people either had to climb across or travel round to gain access to medical care at the nearest town Wazirganj. One day Manjhi’s wife (when pregnant) fell while trying to cross the mountain and eventually died giving birth to a girl, after which Manjhi decided to carve a road through it. When he started hammering the hill people called him a lunatic but that only steeled his resolve further. After 22 years of back-breaking labour, Manjhi carved a path 360 feet long, 25 feet deep in places and 30 feet wide.

During the days when he was carving, Media and Politicians also noticed him doing this. When he had carved the mountain, and made a way for people, one politician asked him to say something about his feeling of success.

Manjhi replied,

“ भगवान के भरोसे मत बैठो, क्या पता भगवान तुम्हारे भरोसे बैठा हो |”

Translation :

“Don’t count on God to make things happen, what if the God himself is counting on you.”

3. Story Of Edmund Hillary.

Who were the first persons to climb the Mount Everest? Of course, one is Edmund Hillary as the title. And the other one was Sherpa Tenzing. Climbing the Mountain is not a piece of cake. Even they hadn’t made it to the top in the first try.

In 1953, Hillary already had become an experienced climber, and his next aim was to climb on the Mount Everest. He met a local mountaineer Sherpa, decided to climb the mountain Everest along with him.

Hillary was not successful in his first attempt as we think. His first attempt was a failure. But When He was going back to home after had a failure. He had written in his diary a sentence. This is our third Sentence of this article.

He wrote ….

“You are the mountain, You can not grow from here. But I’m a human. I can grow.”

Conclusion :

During his Farewell speech of Loksabha, Javed Akhtar said. Currently, India is the youngest country in the world with 50% of the total population are people at working age. That means We have almost 630 million people of young age who have an ability to conquer the world and make India the superpower.

He also added, “Currently India is in the position, from where it may become a superpower Or may fall 200 years back in the upcoming time. It totally depends on our youth, On Us.
