Though no accurate figures are available to measure the actual extent of the problem, drug addicts reporting to counseling in the country points out that the problem has spread among various age groups, and much among youths aged 16 to 25 years. The age group in which a youth is, signifies the transformation of an adolescent to a young person, which usually is accompanied with the trials and tribulations of a ‘child’ in becoming a ‘grown-up’. A bundle of exuberant but undirected energy, he derives pleasure in taking risks and experimenting with new things.
He craves to taste the ‘forbidden fruits’ in his quest for attaining recognition and status amongst his peers. Such a behaviour often brings him in open or concealed conflict with his parents and ‘parent figures’ which leads to the much discussed ‘conflict of generations’ and ‘generation gap’. The situation has been further complicated due to the fast paced social transformation brought in the society by rapid industrialisation, urbanisation and rural-urban migration.
It has eroded the traditional, informal, social control mechanisms and has even brought in changes in the structure of the family, from joint to nuclear, or at best an extended family. The ‘media explosion’ has shrunken the world, especially for the youth, and they are now more aware of things around. This has also raised their level of aspiration and ambition. With materialism, consumerism and individualism gaining ascendancy, modern youth is drifting away from his traditional roots and finds it difficult to cope with ever increasing social pressures.
Further, the increasing economic pressures compel more and more parents to take full time employment leaving a child, more so a youth, alone in the house or in the company of friends. With no adequate programmes available to keep them busy, they become easy prey to anti-social activities including drug-abuse. There may be various reasons for a youth to take to drug abuse, from just curiosity and a tendency to experiment with. It may be an expression of his revolt against established authority, a way of gaining recognition in his group or he may just not be able to say ‘NO’, when offered.
Therefore awareness creation or preventive education programme for youth is an imperative. In build up immunity amongst them, would promote self-respect and determination, provide experiences which encourage self-respect and sense of dignity, enhances personal and social skill which are necessary for functioning in a rapidly transforming society and provide for professional skills. What is more important is that the leisure time activities of both student and non-student youth are so organised that they provide for healthy recreation and constructive work habits.
As is evident, a youth feels more at home within his age-group. Therefore, to reach them, it is but natural to take the help of more active groups among them. In Bangladesh, a strong emphasis has been placed on awareness building against drug-abuse among youth as they are considered to be the most precious asset for human resource development. Financial and technical assistance is provided by the government and NGO’s to help them undertake activities such as socio cultural programmes. Experience has shown such programmes have a salutary impact, if backed by a good follow-up programme.
It has also been realised that youth power can be harnessed not only from preventing youths from the malady of addiction but also by improving the environment they live in. One such example is the “Rainy Day” concert organised by Prothom Alo to observe the International Day against Drug Abuse and Trafficking. Some 15000 youths saying ‘No to drugs’ vowed to launch a nationwide movement against drug. I take my hats off to Anusheh who had the gut to narrate her once drug addicted life. Anusheh, you can be a good ambassador to help the drug addicts return to their original track.
Such activities/programmes help to identify addicts in their own peer groups. Dare devils as the youth are, they prove to be an asset in reaching rather inaccessible areas of the community, such as, pockets of addiction. Many a time, due to their connection with traffickers, pushers and pedlars, it becomes difficult to impress upon addicts to leave their habit. It is here that the youths, voluntary organisations have not only been able to create awareness but also have been able to muster support for combating trafficking, pushing and peddling drug. About The Author Billy I Ahmed Quatation
It is the nature of ambition to make men liars and cheats, and hide the truth in their breasts, and show, like jugglers, another thing in their mouths: to cut all friendships and enmities to the measure of their interest, and to make a good countenance without the help of a good will. – Sallust (Caius Sallustius Crispus) Ambition breaks the ties of blood, and forgets the obligations of gratitude. – Sir Walter Scott Ambition is no cure for love! – Sir Walter Scott, The Lay of the Last Minstrel (canto I, st. 27) O fading honours of the dead! O high ambition, lowly laid! – Sir Walter Scott, The Lay of the Last Minstrel canto II, st. 10) It is the constant fault and inseparable ill quality of ambition never to look behind it. – Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca) Take away ambition and vanity, and where will be your heroes and patriots? – Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca) When once ambition has passed its natural limits, its progress is boundless. – Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca) Ambition’s like a circle on the water, Which never ceases to enlarge itself, ‘Till by broad spreading it disperse to nought. – William Shakespeare Dreams, indeed, are ambition; for the very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream.
And I hold ambition of so airy and light a quality, that it is but a shadow’s shadow. – William Shakespeare I charge thee, fling away ambition: By that sin fell the angels. – William Shakespeare Lowliness is young ambition’s ladder, Whereto the climber-upward turns his face; And when he once obtains the upmost round, He then unto the ladder turns his back, Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees By which he did ascend. – William Shakespeare Vaulting ambition, which overleaps itself. – William Shakespeare Who soars too near the sun, with golden wings, melts them. – William Shakespeare
Which dreams indeed are ambition, for the very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream. – William Shakespeare, Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Guildenstern at II, ii) But ’tis a common proof That lowliness is young ambition’s ladder, Whereto the climber upward turns his face; But when he once attains the upmost round, He then unto the ladder turns his back, Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees By which he did ascend. – William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar (Brutus at II, i) Ambition’s debt is paid. – William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar (Brutus at III, i)
The noble Brutus Hath told you Caesar was ambitious. If it were so, it was a grievous fault, And grievously hat Caesar answered it. – William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar (Antony at III, i) Ill-weaved ambition, how much art thou shrunk! When that this body did contain a spirit, A kingdom for it was too small a bound; But now two paces of the vilest earth Is room enough. – William Shakespeare, King Henry the Fourth, Part I (Prince Henry at V, iv) Virtue is choked with foul ambition And charity chased hence by rancor’s hand; Foul subornation is predominant And equity exiled your highness’ land. William Shakespeare, King Henry the Sixth, Part II (Gloucester at III, i) I have no spur To prick the sides on my intent, but only Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself And falls on th’ other,– – William Shakespeare, Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) By that sin fell the angels. – William Shakespeare, The Life of King Henry the Eighth (Wolsey at III, ii) Mark but my fall and that that ruined me. Cromwell, I charge thee, fling away ambition! By that sin fell the angels; how can man then (The Image of his Maker) hope to win by it? – William Shakespeare, The Life of King Henry the Eighth Wolsey at IV, i) Farewell? a long farewell to all my greatness! This is the state of man: to-day he puts forth The tender leaves of hope; to-morrow blossoms, And bears his blushing honors thick upon him; The third day comes a frost, a killing frost, And when he thinks, good easy man, full surely His greatness is a-ripening, nips his root, And then he falls as I do. – William Shakespeare, The Life of King Henry VIII (Wolsay at III,ii) Ambition is like hunger; it obeys no law but its appetite. – Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)
