If you look at the current Lok Sabha its average age is 53yrs and this is a matter of concern because such leadership can hardly be expected to address the aspirations of a country which has got the largest youth population in the world.
Let me make it clear here that neither I am against these oldies nor I am questioning their administrative qualities and abilities, undoubtedly most of them are well experienced and highly qualified. In fact we should not forget that these people have the biggest thing to provide to the youngsters and that is their experience but what they lack is the desire to change attitude, where as our youth's biggest strength is their desire to change attitude.
Now if there are only youth in politics then things are going to suffer from lack of experience and hence repeating same mistakes that had been made earlier..... On the other hand if there are only old people then we may have to face a "No Action" like situation where lot of ideas may dwell upon problems rather than taking action with full of energy and determination.
Hence instead of arguing for youth or old, it has to be both...... The plus point in proper combination of both into governance can have two kinds of people working together.....i.e
1 ) YOUTH : Full of energy and enthusiasm to take any action with full determination.
2 ) OLD : Having heaps of experience from past events.
Therefore for the upliftment of the nation, the old age people as well as youth should work together. They should co-operate and understand one another.
In fact its not only the Lok Sabha but we should have a right mix of young people in every department of the government organisations, because the old people can provide inputs and give feedback on how exactly the system works and the young can implement the same and take risks as they have age on their side.
Moreover by having proper blend of both, at least a signal would be sent across the youth of this country to come forward and take steps in the right direction to lead the country.
