We all are living a busy life , for us making money has become goal of life and because of that mindset ,we hardly spend any time with family and friends.Some work hard while some work smart in the race of life and motive remains same i.e how to earn more and more wealth. Children’s ask money for tutions or other things , and most of the parents without enquiring just give money to them ,because they trust them blindly in return what a child nowadays do they misuse the money / amnt of fees that is given to them . Who is responsible for all this ? Child comes to his parent ” Papa my friend , suppose, got a jacket for 10k ” , parents nowadays are like , don’t worry my child , will get a jacket that will cost more than 10k .Instead of making him understand the value of money , parent is encouraging his demand . Time doesn’t remain same , sometimes a person can afford everything but the other time he wont be having enough to meet the luxurious demand of their so called children . And if a child feels that his demand is not fulfilled he finds unfair means / ways to get his demand / wish fulfilled which his parents lately couldn’t meet . But who is responsible for all this ? Child ? Parent ? Society ? Nowadays smoking and drug addiction is so common, and the highest hit community is the student community . They feel consumption of heroine, cannabis or any other substance give them freedom from stress , freedom from anxiety, freedom from worries , unfortunately they are just spoiling their life , also they are just playing with expectations, dreams of their parents a lot of youth is getting involved , when a parent is asked , where is your child ? He proudly says tutions, school, college , in actual kid is on bund consuming heroine . Please do not do such kind of injustice to your parents . Let me give you one little example in order to make even layman understand, Person A is involved in drugs , He gets a lot of money from parents, person B is not able to afford, so he/she will try to loot whatever comes in his/her sight . Drug addiction results in crime . Our parents just served their whole life to meet our requirements and what we are doing ? Consuming drugs , smoking cigarettes. A lot of people compare drug addiction with unemployment, their thoughts are like , unemployed youths consume drugs , but that’s not truth. Our society is suffering and reason is society itself . I was walking on a busy road , I saw a under age kid smoking, I didn’t paid any heed , i walked away and that encouraged the kid .If i had made any step against that underage kid , it would have saved his life but I was busy in my life , with my earnings , tomorrow my son/ daughter will be committing crime , on seeing it people won’t mind , because our care is only for our own child and not for others . Drug rate is increasing day by day , in coming years crime will be automatically on peak . I need money for drugs, once my pockets are empty I will loot people, even I can murder people , for me drug is everything. I request Lt . Governor sahab , Administration to look into the matter. I am having a proposal for govt , and that proposal will definitely help in decrease of drug abuse in our state as well as it will help in tackling unemployment. Prepare a unit (Anti Drug squad) 10/12 (Anti drug station) in every district, with a total no of 40-50 youths .
50×12= 600 youths per district . 600 youths × 20 Districts = 12000 youth will get employment . If you really want to tackle the situation, kindly think on my proposal. Our police is not enough to win the war against drugs , our police is having a huge work load, stress . We need a Anti Drug squad that will help a lot in decrease of drug addiction in valley. Keep a regular watch on your child in order to save their future from spoiling . Nowadays lot of NGO’s , social activists keep on hosting Anti drug rallies, Debates, programs , for me it’s just waste of time and waste of money , it’s easy to speak prepared speech in audience in order to get popularity, better to work on ground . War against drugs seems easy when we say it , unfortunately it’s out of mind and most difficult phase .
