New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged youths especially the neo-college goers to focus on learning new skills but also counseled them to be calm and enjoy inner peace.
In his monthly radio broadcast ‘Mann Ki Baat’ over All India Radio, Mr Modi said the months of July and August are crucial for farmers as well as the youth.
This is the time young students move out of schools and join colleges and the youths become
their own ‘sarthis (self motivators and guide)’, Mr Modi said.
“Be calm, enjoy your inner peace,” he said.
To move out of home, out of own village and to move away from “protected environment”
has its own excitement as this is the time young people take first step to give ‘new direction’ to their lives, Prime Minister said.
Referring to works and achievements of younger generation in various parts of the
country, Mr Modi said youth are contributing towards creating a ‘New India’.
Prime Minister also said that the teachings of saints continue to inspire millions of countrymen
in the fight against social evils. He also paid rich tributes to Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak.
