Our Chosen Path

India, at its present stage, demands a wide range of services, for, the challenges faced are many, the needy sectors are many.  Social Service encompasses a large canvass from orphanage to hospital, from providing scholarship to Annadhanam, from environmental care to economic well-being.

Often many mega services are possible only at the effect level, i.e. when certain malady has happened, the remedy is provided.  These services are important, but they do not address the root cause of the disease, but apply medicines after the disease has arisen.

வருமுன்னர் காவாதான் வாழ்க்கை, எரிமுன்னர்

வைத்தூறு போலக் கெடும்

–          Says Thiruvalluvar.

“Prevention is better than Cure” is the proposition of Thiruvalluvar, the great Tamil poet.

For effective prevention from any epidemic, we have to understand the root cause and address it thoroughly.  Again Valluvar says,

நோய்நாடி நோய்முதல் நாடி அதுதணிக்கும்

வாய்நாடி வாய்ப்பச் செயல்.

Such a measure is possible only at the cause level, i.e. we have to find out the basic reasons for the ills inflicted on our Indian society and take steps to eradicate them.  Only then, we can have a healthy nation.

Endowed with enormous resources to which no other country can match, if India has not yet become the Global Guru – a Guru who is capable of guiding the World, we, the people, alone are responsible.

Yuva Shakthi feels that Deficiency of Clarity, Deficiency of Character, Deficiency of Confidence, and Deficiency of patriotism are the four major reasons for the present situation.  Haunted by several deliberate designs, neither we care for the deficiency nor we realise our caliber to evolve better.

Clarity leads to conviction, conviction leads to concerted action and concerted action yields constructive results.

Yuva Shakthi has therefore thought it fit to address these cause-level issues and is precisely engaged in:

  • Providing the clarity of thought
  • Imparting high moral values
  • Making people understand the strength of the Self and the nation so as to have confidence
  • Highlighting the glories and greatness of India and
  • Identifying our role in nation-building

……….. Patently a simple affair but practically an arduous task. Unless this task is undertaken, the issues are addressed at the cause-level, in future we may have to face the effects which will be more serious and dangerous.

Having chosen to serve at the cause-level, Yuva Shakthi has chosen the young minds to be the targets of our mission.

Why Youth:

Youth in the age group of 18-35, constitute over 50% of Indian population. Today’s youth form a great pool of strength to India and are fondly recognised as Demographic Dividend.  A majority of them are vibrant but vulnerable, dynamic but distractible, energetic but easy-going, talented but tense. If their potentials are channelised and oriented towards better values and patriotism, India can achieve more through its youth force.

So Yuva Shakthi has chosen the “Road less travelled”, so that the path becomes practicable and also we can reach the destination of India becoming the Global Guru forever.

With the firm conviction that Better India can be built only by Better Youth, we have been undertaking this journey and the feedbacks of each year confirms our conviction and firm up our resolve to work more in this direction.
