Our young citizens today are facing several challenges. These challenges are new to our society and thus very few people are equipped to cope with them. They are however, taking a very high toll on the budding generation. In India, one person kills him/herself every five minutes and majority of these victims range from age 15 to 29. India ranks amongst the top countries of the world for incidents of student suicide. Added to this is the fact that more youngsters struggle with addiction than ever before. Statistics reveal that the use of illicit drugs is on a constant rise; numbers report around 3 million victims. In Punjab alone the numbers are shocking! 75% of its youth are severely addicted to drugs that are 3 out of 4 children

Peer pressure, Depression, Stress, Career indecision, unemployment, Competition etc. are just some of the issues that doom our youngsters towards a life of suffering and regret. If this is not enough appalling enough, there is the ever increasing number of rapes, violence, and other forms of anti-social behavior by our young citizens. We are in a situation of crisis to say the least.
