means young people between the ages of 18 to 35 years. These age grades of young men and women have certain qualities which make them stand out in the population of any given society. They are also more critical in their society than other age groups and are full of vibrant ambition and ideas. The men and women who belong to this youth’s age bracket are primarily responsible for the difficult work.
