It is amusing to see the number of youths ready to bring a change for the love of the nation. So much energy and so much potential with the youths of today!

If given the platform and opportunity, maybe the youths of today can change Nepal in a better way. Maybe if we trust our young ones, we can fight the COVID pandemic in the future. Maybe we become much stronger as a nation.

And maybe it’s time to trust a little more on the young ones.

Do you think the youth are the hope for Nepal? What are your thoughts with NAST’s attempt?
