The pulse of life throbs in the ignited minds of Youth. The tainted old windows of the convention are thrown open by them to let in the vibrant breeze of change. Their perspective of looking at the world is, thus poles apart from the grey world.
They are born into a world aided by technology at every step. On the other hand, the aesthetic sense of the old world has diminished inversely. Yet, the Youth are not to be blamed. We have failed in preserving the inheritance of Earth that belonged to the Youth. War, displacement, human rights violations, and increasing crimes against women and children have scarred the world.
However, the undaunted spirit of Youth shines through every misery and burden. Their resolve and cheerleads way to evolve avenues to harmonize art with joy. Such an art form that has evolved in recent times is open word poetry which transcends all cultural barriers.
Poetry has nothing to give in return but love and contentment of the soul. Therefore a young generation that writes poetry assures us that the world will be all right.
