5 Things You Can Do to
Make India Unstoppable

Tue, 15/08/2017 Bangalore, India

This independence day, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar shares 5 things you can do as an Indian to make India unstoppable:

#1 Take pride in your roots

The youngsters today should be proud of their roots. If they are not proud of their roots then that will show up as a weakness in their personality. So, take pride in your roots and your self-esteem will go up. If you have a good self-esteem then you can do anything in the world. In India, many people suffer from a lack of self-esteem.

#2 Stay away from intoxicants

The province of Punjab has been destroyed by drugs from across the border. It is such a sad thing. There are people in India, and many youths who don’t want to do anything because they are so addicted to drugs. Not just the province of Punjab, but the same is in Kerala, Mumbai and in Bangalore. It is unbelievable. We must chuck the intoxicants. I request the you to stay away from all types of intoxicants. Drugs and alcohol de-addiction is a must for a progressive country.

#3 Participate in social service

Engage yourself in some form of social activity, at least for one hour a day. Give one hour to the nation.

Even if you are a housewife, you can contribute. Women love talking, you should go and talk to the people on the streets, in the slums, and to the under privileged people. Go in groups to areas where there are underprivileged people and sit with them, talk to them, and give them some solace. Just by talking you can reduce the burden and worries of many people. You can bring down their tension.

#4 Do some random acts of kindness

Emotion is in the very core of every human being. It just needs a little nurturing through random acts of kindness. Take a sankalpa to do one random act of kindness every now and then.

#5 Improve on your talents

For the youth, this is the time to improve your talents. This is the time to be creative and multi-dimensional. You have to be multi-talented. Though you may pursue one line of education, do not ignore to equip yourself with others skills. You may be studying for engineering, but also learn some cooking. Suppose you don’t get an engineer job at least you can cook somewhere.

When I was a youth like you, I use to think, what else can I do? I thought I was anyway going to do spirituality. So, I used to put my hand everywhere. Even if you are not a master it is good to be a jack of all trades. Explore your ability to be a multi-faceted personality. So, it is very important to improve your personality by engaging yourself in many areas.
