Even this challenging situation would ease
A complete ban on narcotics and drugs that destroys the lives of children who fall into abuse. It is a mense that has demolished peace of families and left them astonished and appalled. We can't expect such children involved in drugs bring prosperity to a nation. Better education and better direction are a backbone for the upbringing of a child.
Sometimes, they lack proper encouragement from the different sources causing frustrations sometimes. The employers can take leading roles in this direction. Simply serving appreciation letters on the eve of their commendable performance would go a long way in boosting up their esteems. This would create confidence within themselves and the tasks undertaken by them can be accomplished brilliantly.
But these days there is a change in the attitude of the parents. They love their children so much that they are keeping silent even though their children are getting out of control. This attitude may be due to the planning of their family. When any commodity is rare, the interest towards that commodity will increase. Same is the case here also. Couples are having either one or two children. So they don't want their children to be unhappy. So they concentrate more on earning and leave the children. That is making a big difference. So I feel the role of parents is more than the role of the government in this case.
That is why we are seeing very good and prospering young people also today in society and also the other type. The difference is due to the way they brought up, I think.
The second query is what should the government do. The Govt., if I am not mistaken, does have vocational skill development schemes in place to help the youth to get gainful employment, but these seem to be mainly focusing on trades. Besides, is it necessary to always depend on an authority to do something? Why can't the educational institutes take some initiative and not stick to merely the curriculum as laid out by UGC or the university to which they are affiliated? They can come up with some kind of training modules that will give students some actual skills that would help them in a later career. At websites of the colleges, you will see how they have a career counselling cell or a placement cell and how students attend workshops to understand how to face an interviewer. Similarly, there can be arrangements to organize really relevant vocational or other skills as well that are related to the course already taken up or not necessarily so to give students flexibility. Such workshops can be scheduled twice a week or so with guest faculty coming in who have real expertise.
