Hello Friends,
Recently I am asked to address the management students of a B School. I took some slides out of the presentation and giving you as attachment. Please lend me your comments.
You will here now and then the great achievements of school children, or college boy or girl. But by and large, majority of the youth is going undirectional. They are expected to lead the country and rule the country and create a dream world where peace and prosperity is present. But the way they are going now.. how to correct the situation? can we discuss...?

Dear Rao,
The slides have started off very well.It would be nice if you can add more slides to it on how they can be contributing members of society and what responsibilities they have towards family and nation.Can also add what would be their personal benefits if they focus on goals which are worthwhile..
its a nice thought!

Thanks Dhanya, I did that. As told, this is a motivational speech I made to MBAs. Now, in this context I just deleted because I just want to hear from the youth also. Thanks for your comments.

I am amazed at the provacative message in the slides. I am sure K S Rao's idea is to trigger a debate. I have been away from India for over 40 years. However, I have been visiting India every year for the past 10 years. I do not get the impression that all young people fit the picture depicted in the slides.
Even 50 years ago we had students coming from other states to Bangalore to study Engineering and some of whom gave the impression that they had come to drink, eat masala Dosa and enjoy movies.
If our intention is to ensure that the youth grow up to be responsible citizens then we (parents, teachers and the media) have to take the right initiatives and pursue the right path.
Have a lovely day.

Hi Mr. Simhan,
Thanks for the comments. I really don't mean all the youth is the way I depicted. But majority is like that. I wish and dream majority should be achievers and some may be like the ones in my posting. Then only, the India, Super Power dream come true. As you said correctly, this provocation is only to trigger a debate. Regards,

Dear KS Rao,
You have asked to address a very good topic. The Youth of India is really going undirectional; that is because we dont have right leader who can take all the youths to right direction. I would say for a while we had Abdul Kalam in the recent days; who was showing the sense of direction to the people of India.
The first and foremost the political system we have to change. Youths should cultivate the leadership qualities and work sincerely to lead the country. It should come from each one of Indian Youths.

Dear KS Rao,
Add some slides of people who have achieved great things in their youth life like Bill Gates, Tendulkar, So that the message which you are going to convey them will enter into there minds very strongly

Youth of India, in majority, has lost the values and the direction. The blame is not only on the leaders (so called) but also on the shoulders of their own family from where they get the values. What we preach, as parents, is not heard by youth, rather than what they see us live. We are giving them much freedom at the cost of morals & and values and this is the real culprit. The youth desire to be counted as "Forward" in the society. And to be considered as a "Forward" they need to be "Experienced". Without experiencing the so called High society activities - Partying, Boozing, Relationships and many more things, they find they will not be considered Mod enough.Easy money easy riches is the desire, Fashionable looks, apparels, accessories, gadgets, bikes & autos, satisfying the needs of g/f & b/f are driving youth crazy and to resort to so many evils & crimes. News papers are filled with news of such crimes by highly educated guys & gals. Why they indulge in such crimes ? Have they witnessed their own family elders earning money through unfair means??Lets all, as parents, elders, leaders, teachers ponder over these thoughts and join together to give direction to our youth.

Ur presentation is incomplete. wat exactly are u tryin to convey? it wud be great if u establish the purpose of this presentation.

abt the discussion goin of here..... i think the main reason why youth is goin inthe wrong way cud be the imitation tendency technically called as "demonstration effect" . the middle n lower class tryin to imitate the upper class. this has led the youth to be loan bearers in the young age itself. guys n girls , they take loan as soon as they get a job and spend it on bikes, jewelleries, designer dresses , cars, trips etc, IT culture is another issue. working lik a donkey for 5 days a week n then allowing themselves luxury thru booze n parties is the trend. the peer culture forces others to be involoved in such activites. u dnt do all these then u r considered old fashioned or conventional which is not a very "COOL" image. most of the youth tries to grab attention by involving in such activities n by attending parties. they r forgetting the fact that the personality n character is the most imp aspects in lyf.

hello jaison,
thanks for triggering the debate. I made the presentation containging 45 slides giving direction and solutions to correct the youth.This is a presentation which I made for the students of a B School. Intentionally, I omitted because I want to gather public opinion and then refine the presentation. Any way, thanks for your comments. regards,
