Today we are talking about the youth of the country, the millennials or gen Z who are often dismised by the older generation as self-involved, interested in gadgets, the good life and films, entertainment - who have actually taken the country by storm, showing us they will not be dismissed, they will voice their concerns, they will make demands and they will dissent. Over the last couple of weeks, from the end of 2019 into this year, the youth have enthralled us. They quote the Constitution, the Preamble, Mahatma Gandhi and Dr BR Ambedkar with ease. It began with campus protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act and the brutal police crackdown in Jamia University on December 15, which sparked anger and protests across campuses in the country. Then the January 5 attack by masked men in JNU, which again saw a strong reaction among the youth with more angry demonstrations, even in St Stephens, in IITs and even the scientists in IISC in Bengaluru were chanting azaadi slogans. Today, on the show we're discussing India's youth and dissent - we have representatives from student unions who may one day become big leaders in their own right.
