I went to the Gurdwara last Saturday, and the kirtan is still playing in my head. It is that powerful.
Amrit sahey, Mithi jyot jalawe....
Kirtan sahey, Satguru miliya, sahej basawe
Through sweetness, light the Sweet flame
Through kirtan, I found God, who leads the dance of life...
I woke up thinking maybe the government should offer , especially to young people, Studentships. Maybe at a cost of 500 per month, this will give people focused activities to lead them to future gainful employment. So this people can learn through Distance Learning, through use of multi-media at home, or libraries or internet cafes.
This will give a boost to the economy, at a nominal cost, leading to future creation of wealth by developing a more-focused knowledge base.
Such an activity should have the inclusion of work-based placement one or two days a week. This would be most effective in schools, hospitals, City offices, design workshops and factories.
People who are being laid off from work could also find this a good alternative to just being unemployed.
What do you think of this idea?
