Mangaluru, Feb 25: The 12th DYFI state convention, focusing on the theme of Harmony, Employment, and Dignified Life, was inaugurated by retired High Court judge Justice H N Nagamohan Das at Unity Hall on Sunday, February 25.

Retired Justice H N Nagamohan Das addressed the audience, stating, "By looking at my hair, you can understand I'm 73 years old. For around 40 years, I was a youth, and I've roamed the whole country. The 3/4th of our population is youth, and people forget to count women when counting youth. Young people have sacrificed and given us a lot. They have sacrificed themselves and have been to jail. They left everything they had for the cause of independence. Youths are the true indication of development. Youth is a rebellious person, and I'm really happy that I've inaugurated this event here today."





He further added, "There have been many wars, and people died for reasons not that simple to explain. During WW2, all countries joined in and they killed people and destroyed other people's property. Hence this was certain at the end that this should end; hence UN was formed. According to a study from 1947 till now, nearly 300 wars have been going on. In India, 6,50,000 crores have been spent on the defense industry. We are in such times that if someone far away presses one nuclear button, the whole world is gone. Youths have lost lots of life to war; my only request is to stop the war and spread peace. We got independence and a constitution, and from then we have progressed a lot. The achievements of India are that India was never United under one person from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, and only when our constitution was made that was possible. We have not just used Democracy; we have also brought significant changes in society. All of our sectors are improving, and it's all because of our constitution. All religions have their own book, but to be an Indian, you need to believe in the Constitution. The people and youths have started to read construction. We don't need educated people; we need people who care and protect, and this can be made possible only because of DYFI. Youth is facing problems; they don't have education, they also have family issues and mental pressure, and no job, no opportunity in sports, and there is no place to enhance and grow their minds. In 1947 when we got independence, our education rate was less, and since then we have improved, but there is no quality education and equal education. If we think all kids are god's kids, then why is education different? Although we have lots of educated people, we lack Quality of education. The government should make sure that youths should be given employment. When you cannot use youth for the development of our country, at that time someone else will use them in the destruction of the country."

Honorary president of the 12th state convention AB Ibrahim welcomed the gathering and said, "I'm concerned for the future generations, and there is no clarity. This land has lots of traditions, and people are educated here. This is the land of Rani Abbaka, where Tipu sultan fought. Abbaka came from a patriarchal society and yet made her name famous. In many places like education, the human development index is growing in this district and we should be a role model for the country and our state. But when an outsider sees Mangalore now he is shocked and wonders why so much hate against other communities. The attacks on poor, women's, children's, etc have raised, and still, the problems are there. Unemployment problem is riding. All communities co-living together for generations then you should ask yourself why this hate started now. Regarding this, we must be aware of the public, and this is not a laboratory of hate politics because they have been successful till now. This place should be a place of education and awareness; we should fight for women's rights and against hate politics, and we also have to fight against social evils."

On this occasion, Munner Katipalla, State president, DYFI, said, "you have heard all the speeches and when this programme was planned to be made in Mangalore. This event is not just for Mangalore but for the entire state. This land is the land of Rani Abbaka who fought bravely against the Portuguese and Tipu Sultan who fought against Britishers. Our poster has Karl Marx, Che Guerrera, Kuvempu, Bhagat Singh, Koti Chennaya, Narayan guru. We faced lots of problems and criticism for this poster yet we had to show whom we support. When police inquired and informed us that banners should be removed, we said no. And Tipu Sultan has fought bravely, and he even liberated the women of Kerala from their issues. These individuals have been inspirational and have sacrificed themselves; we might not be in power, but we are in the hearts of the people of Mangalore."

B K Imtiyaz proposed a vote of thanks.

The cultural events by PYM troupes Bajal are scheduled for February 25th, followed by a Souharda Gayana on February 26th by Ekathari Haadugaara Naada Maninaalkur and team. Additionally, an Amrutha Smarane will be conducted in memory of Dr Amrutha Someshwara by Mime Ramdas, Meghana Kundapura, and team.

The final day, February 27, will feature a Youth March from Kutthar junction to Unity ground, followed by a formal function chaired by CPIM central committee general secretary Seetharam Yechuri. The event will also include the presence of film actor Prakash Rai, Akhila Bharath DYFI president AA Raheem, and the presidency of DYFI state president Muneer Katipalla.
