India, the largest democracy and home to more than 1.3 billion people is a developing nation with a bright future.

India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 and more than 65% below the age of 35. It is expected that, in 2020, the average age of an Indian will be 29 years, which is subjected to decrease over the period of time. This tells us that India’s driving force is its youth.

 

With the increase in the number of people having access to the internet, the exposure to the readily available content can be used to solve the issues that are present in our life and make our country a better place to live. The masses are taking action to change, to make right what is wrong and the youth plays a big part in it.

The youth of India is coming forward to make a stand, be it the ‘Swatch Bharat Abhiyan’ or Digital India. With the proper knowledge and the hunger to live a better life, the people have accepted new technologies. The time after the note-ban, efforts to make India a cashless economy were accepted and promoted.

Take the example of Afroz Shah, a Mumbai resident and the man responsible for doing this

Yes, this is the state of Versova Beach, Mumbai. It took 85 weeks to remove a total of 5 million kg of waste from this beach.  The clean-up was initiated by Mr.Afroz Shah who is a common man with a noble intention in mind. He began the clean-up process alone but he was soon joined by many NGO’s and locals who shared the same goal, a better place to live in.

Mr.Afroz Shah is just one of the many people who are working for the society and inspiring others to do good for others.
