Drug abuse in youth ” A huge threat to any nation”


June 26 was celebrated as International  Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. On that day i researched on the drug abuse problem and  I was shocked to see some facts on the subject “Drug Abuse”. Last week we also see a controversial release ‘Udta Punjab’ which was also on the problem of drugs problem in Punjab. Punjab is a state in India having highest number of drug addicts. There is no part in World that is free from Drug trafficking and Drugs addiction. And in a last few decades India is showing significant increase in the number of drug addicts. A fresh study shows that every day 7 peoples commits suicide due to drug addiction in India and there are around 5 million people who are inhaling heroin. That figure is really concern to any Nation. For any country youth are assets for their country and they can’t see youth falling to drug abuse.

So, what do you think the cause of this problem?? Any Idea??  In a survey made by me I found some interesting result.   30 % people think that parents are very much cautious about their child and their needs. They provide full facility to their child even those which are not essential to them. 20% people think that young generation wants success in a short period of time without any hard work. And if not then they gets frustrated and start taking drugs. And 50% people or youth told that they were taking drugs as a modern trend. Because if they do not take it then their colleagues or friends will make mock of them. And to look or act as cool boy, they starts to take it.

My personal experience also agree with last result as I have seen 90 % of youth falling in addiction of drugs due to their friend circle or for showing off that they are cool guy. My question here is that a person who does not takes drugs is not a cool guy ? Is he only for the mockery of the others. I am not able to give the answer of this question because I am also the person who does not take drugs. But I will say that I am happier and healthier  then those who takes drugs. There are 90 % of families who got troubles due to their youth.I have seen a lot of them and  My family is also not the exception.

Drugs problem is spreading everywhere day by day in a very fast speed. If we take a moment to think about the future of our country then we will realize that whats going on. It must be stopped. And I think this is the most crucial problem for any country. For this youth should come forward and only they can stop this problem. No one else can stop this without the effort of the youth.

At last I would like to share thought of Swami Vivekanand jee “I have faith in my country, and especially in the youth of my country. My hope is in you. With an immense amount of feeling and enthusiasm in the blood, will come heroes who will march from one corner of the earth to the other, preaching and teaching the eternal spiritual truths of our forefathers. 



Success is not final and failure is not fatal .:

winstonchurchill124653Because of stiff competition, world is running after success. And my country is not the exception. Here everyday in newspaper there is news about students committing suicide. Because he got 96% marks and not 98% marks for which he was preparing. Does getting 98% or 100 % marks is success? Only a man who got the merit  will be successful ?? My answer will be a Huge “NO”. And another Question : Does Getting failure in exam or in your life means “End” ??  Still my answer will be “NO”. Life is full of opportunities. Life gives us so many opportunities and getting success or failure is just one of the opportunity that we just used or missed. There are a lot of opportunities left in our life. We should not ruin this beautiful life just because of one opportunity that we missed.

Lets take an example of cricket.Does Having missed the first ball mean that its end and you cant do anything? probably “NO”. Its just one opportunity that he missed. He can make 4 or 6 but he just missed that opportunity. But that does not mean that he can’t do anything. There are still many balls(opportunities) left. Lets think that he missed again 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and  5th balls(opportunities). Then should he stop playing ? “No”. and now think that at last ball he makes “6” and thus he came at the state of Equilibrium.

Therefore we should not stop working whether we are getting success or failure. Because life is full of opportunity. And getting success today does not mean that it will remain forever, and getting failure today does not mean that its end. So we should work continuously and take advantage of opportunities that life gives to us.

At last “ success and failure are part of life. without failure you will not enjoy the success. so live this beautiful life no matter whats happening, and i am 100% sure you will never be depressed and upset”. 

With love,
