Freedom has given us a new status and new opportunities but it also demands that we should safe guard it by our efforts. Students have a lot of energy to do the social services. Also they can indulge their free time in this. They can be easily enlisted to bring about social reforms.
India is a developing country. There is a lot of illiteracy backwardness in it. The highest sufferers are the villagers, they live in poor sanitary conditions and do not get proper facilities. They remain deprived of all the dexterity that can help them to lead a quality life. Students can help them in these situations. During long or short vacations students can help them to aware about importance of sanitation and maintaining small families. Students can organize adult education education class and teach them three things i.e Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. They should accuant people with welfare schemes that are introduced by the government. Students have endless fields to render social service. Our society is based on old traditional and superstitious believes. There are a lot of evils in it. Students might en light people about various social evils like dowry system, child marriage, ill-treatment of lower class and many more.
Medical students can help in a large way. They can teach people regarding the proper ethics of diet and medical facilities. They also help them by educating them about the deadly diseases like AIDS, Malaria, Dengue, etc. They can engross with some NGOs and can put up awareness and blood donation camps, as they can tell them the symptoms and treatment of diseases and can tell them the importance of donation. Coming forward,, Agricultural students can help the villagers by telling them about the crops, fertilizers, new way of production by which they can get quality crops. Economic students can help villagers by telling them how to recognize the right price of their livelihood, the new insurance schemes and can aware them about the financial help schemes introduced by government. We believe that youth has ability to change the conditions of the society.
The lack of awareness is the main cause. So the combine effort will surely improve the country. It will be a two fold. At one side they improve the country and on other side they find fruitful occupation and knowledge.
But these services must held every year in such a way that one hand must not know what other hand is doing. As GANDHI JI aslo said that “SOCIAL SERVICE SHOULD BE SELFLESS AND WITHOUT ANY NOISE AND GAIN”
