It has become a norm to associate two things, that are just based on assumptions and not on hard facts,while here may be individuals who are ‘old and wise’ or some who are ‘young and carefree’ , there also exists a group who are both young and wise.
And today I feel honoured to speak for such young and wise individuals who are not able to realize their full potential and serve their nation just because some 70+ leader is not willing to say goodbye to politics.
Today, youngsters rule the world metaphorically, of course. There are more yooung people in leadership position today than ever before in organizations like these , young leaders bring a fresh energy and are better qualified and are also motivated to do something new for a change.
If a young leader comes to power, he would be able to energize the political processes. He would be more likely to embrace new ideas than older and established politicians would. You may not want to accept it but the young generation , the one that grew after 1991, the era of gobalization, is more expressive, smart, capable and better at making decisions.
Do you seriously want to trade a young energetic leader for an old, tired one still living in that good old times, reminiscing without actually doing anything about dreams and aspirations of the youth, the actual building blocks of this country. The choice is quite obvious!
Keeping everything aside, just ponder over this question, the leader we choose will go to parliament and make laws that we will have to abide by. The ones who support the old “experienced” leaders. do you guys really think that the leaders that are old enough to be your great grandfathers , and can barely walk without a cane can fully understand the mindset of a 20+ something individual ?
