"Indian civilisation today is stagnant. It is duty of youth to convert this stagnant pool into a moving stream. the test of youth is action, rebellion in every sphere. Every youth must rebel. Not only in the political sphere but in social , economic and religious spheres also. I have not much use for any man who comes and tells me that such and such thing is said in Koran. Everything unreasonable must be discarded even if they find authority for it in the vedas and in Koran. I know there are dificulties in pursuing this path but these difficulties are infinitely better than inaction."
[On the mission of youth - Jawaharlal Nehru, 20 May 1928]
Happy B'day India!
