True. Youth are the wealth and light of our nation.
Unless they are properly energized and inspired in direction, they really become a valuable, dumped or hidden treasure.
In fact, we are spending lavishly on oil imports by sacrificing a considerable portion of our national exchequer. If we save at least 50% from expensive fuel imports, by applying a new concept in our vehicles, we can have enormous funds to encourage and employ our youth power, to see the real light.
This also will help the land transportation to keep face with the revolutionized telecommunication.

Well said Mr.Prasheesh Kumar S,Mumbai.Nicely worded comment about our today's youth's wealth and it is being misused/misinterpreted by some people for their selfish gain.All the youth of the nation should understand the meaning of WEALTH.It is not material/monetary wealth.Read between the line.

YOUTHS ARE NATION'S WEALTH. What is said by Dr. Heggade is quite true.
But, Some times some people who do not know the value of the WEALTH spoil the HEALTH of the Society by misusing this wealth, say for moral policing or Terrorism.
