This blog is dedicated all the young guys and girls around the globe.
"Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society's margins, all of us will be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies."-- Kofi Annan.

Suresh Ranjan Goduka
With forefathers who migrated to Assam from the erstwhile Rajputana a century ago, this Marwari youth could teach Raj Thackeray a thing or two about cultural assimilation. Among the leading Assamese poets of his generation, he gave up a documentary filmmaking career in Delhi and went back home in 2004 to startJeevan, a monthly Assamese magazine, which seeks to explore the diversity, beauty and infinite possibility of life. "The media here carries only news of oppression, corruption and lack of development," says Goduka, who used own bank balance, his father's savings as well as a loan to fund Jeevan, which now sells 5,000 copies a month. Its perception, awareness and aspiration surveys conducted among the youth, a first in the region, have shattered many myths. This year, he founded the Jeevan Initiative, an NGO, dedicated to youngsters.
