Good Essays
It is said that the real strength of a nation depends not so much on its natural resources or on its uniformed men or on its military capabilities but rather on its students. They constitute the backbone of a nation as well as the pillar on which the national edifice is built. They are the real wealth of a nation.

Therefore, students can do wonders in removing the various bottlenecks that retard and strangle our society, economy, and the nation. Students can also play a significant role in helping out the less fortunate members of the society by fighting against racial discrimination, social inequality and economic disparity so prevalent in the Indian society. They can render valuable services by extending their helping hands in promoting mass literacy programmes, public awareness schemes, forestation projects, and by undertaking social work for the upliftment of poor and the economically backward people of the society. Social work and community service must, therefore, become part and parcel of present- day education. Students can also render valuable services to the nation at the time of natural calamities such as, earthquakes, floods, drought, and accidents. Students ought to take leadership in organising quick rescue work during these national
