Only the youth can lead the world and work towards ensuring everlasting peace.

Biggest obstacle: Peer pressure and comparisons.

Solution: Start from being grateful for what we have in life and by accepting ourselves.

peaceful practice: I practice gratitude and focus on the good things. Social media is for us, we are not for social media.

Be selective

Youth has the power, but youngsters today should know how to react to a situation better.

Biggest obstacle: Over-reactive or hyper-impulsive attitude; aggression doesn’t help.

Solution: Youngsters should be introduced to meditation.

peaceful practice: Social media is a powerful tool, only if used judiciously.

Divert the energy

Youth can contribute in ensuring peace by following guidelines, respecting each other; by being kind and reading good books. Youth has the power to bring about any change in society.

Biggest obstacle: Their attitude and unhealthy lifestyle.

Solution: Divert that energy into doing something good for humanity each day.

peaceful practice: I have started meditating and also perform one act of kindness each day.

Control anger

The youth should first know about the conflicts around them because without proper knowledge and awareness, sometimes we tend to voice wrong opinions and then a situation comes where we become more violent.

Biggest obstacle: Choosing violence to satisfy their egos.

Solution: When you are young, you should channelise your energy into something positive. We should also know how to control anger.

peaceful practice: I have resorted to gardening. I suggest people should bring nature home. Plants calm you down!

Non-violent path
Sneha Namanandi

Youngsters can help in maintaining peace by doing what’s right, following the path of non-violence, controlling their anger and creating awareness.

Biggest obstacle: Impulsive attitude and indecisiveness.

Solution: Focus on one thing at a time; multi-tasking is not always required especially if your goal is to bring about change.

peaceful practice: I don’t let negative comments on social media affect me. I focus on the good things and don’t care what the world is saying.
