Youths are frequently considered to represent a country’s face. Every year on the 12th of August, the globe celebrates International Youth Day. It is mostly held to raise attention to a global concern. To raise awareness of the problems that others suffer as a result of a lack of facilities. This day is particularly noteworthy because young children are taught how to make a difference.
The overall theme of the event is youth and mental health. Even though it is 2021, mental health is no longer a taboo subject, it is still spoken about in hushed tones and as something that may pull a person’s image down in front of others.
The United Nations General Assembly designated August 12th to be International Youth Day in 1999. The day is used to honour men and women from all across the world who have achieved success.
The following is a list of Indians who taught people that the sky is the limit, not age:
Neeraj Chopra – India’s 1st Olympic Gold Medalist In Track & Field

His tale has also influenced many young people in India. Neeraj was an obese child, and his family forced him to exercise in order to maintain his health. While he was on the ground, he noticed others throwing javelins, which piqued his curiosity. He’s gone from being the fat one to becoming “the one” for the country.
