People Democratic Party youth President Waheed ur rehman Para said on Wednesday that the youths of the state, should shun the traditional careers, chose innovative fields and explore new territories like small and large entrepreneurship.Para while congratulating the eight people from the state who have qualified the Civil Services Examinations, said these are role models for the young people, who want to pursue their careers in Civil Service. He said if the young people want to act as catalysts of change and bring in a long-lasting, then we should have experts in every field: be it technocrats, economists, entrepreneurs, or teachers or pilots or politics. “In politics Chief Minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti is the biggest role model. Her entire focus is on youth and she is pulling youth from desperation to reading Centers and working on innovative ways to meet their demands,” Para said.
He said, the young women like Dr Ruveda Salam, should become the face of changing Jammu and Kashmir as she was the first women IPS officer from the state and has again qualified the Civil Services Examinations.“Young people are the heart and soul of nation but parents should not force their children to live a dream, which they don’t want to excel in. Instead, we should encourage children to make a carrier in a filed in which they are interested and could become role models for the others,” Para said. Para was speaking to a group of young boys and girls in Srinagar in an informal interaction on Wednesday. “We should produce IAS officers every year but every one should not think that is the only field in life, where you can excel. If a society has dearth of better teacher would it produce people like Dr Ruveda Salam, Shah Faisal or Athar Aamir ul Shafi Khan. You need to have good teachers, doctors, engineers and scientists than only out society would become better,” Para said. (KNS)
