Youth advocates discuss ‘youth unemployment’ as a global problem. I always wondered why people said so because unlike the developed countries in our country a job is not a compulsion for girls. But after doing a micro research about youth unemployment in my own college & society, I found that ‘unemployment’ is the major problem in my society too. I surveyed with 50 youths in my class & street passersby in Hetauda Municipality, which is a very negligible number in...

Youths are the most responsible age group of the world. About one fifth of the world’s population is supposed to be composed of youths between 16-24 years. So, we youths must be responsible for our living planet; for its peace, prosperity, & sustainability from our own level. It is true that we can’t make donations of millions but we can bring change in our societies by the action of volunteerism. Today I want to request every youths of the world to do at least one acti...

We lose, break ourselves & shed into tears Lots of difficulties around covered with fears. We just cry & cry but show fake smil...

Humans are your little kids mother, Being factors for you to bother. They cut trees & make you naked, By global warming earth is being baked. Mountains & oceans are your scenic view, Glacier outbursts & tsunamis are hurting you. Humans are being cruel, rude & selfish, Extincting are valuable plants,wildlife and fish. Teach humans mother or scold or slap, But let our offsprings play on your lap. As your kid & youth, promise I make, T...

Climate in a wider sense is the state, including...
