But at the same time, these children are lucky in a sense that they at least have a mean to win their bread. Pakistan is a country where even the youths equipped with high qualifications beg for jobs. What to talk about illiterate and unskilled youngsters? With their empty stomachs, it's silly to expect them to be good citizens. Consequently, this fraction of youth is left with no other option but to indulge into immoral activities and heinous crimes. It is evident from the Annual Report on Terrorism and Extremism, where 96 per cent of the criminals belong to the youth cohort. Therefore, keeping in view the dilemmas of youth, this portion of society cannot be ignored any more. Conclusion The enviable potential and unrivalled élan of youth, if properly harnessed, can bring a socioeconomic revolution in Pakistan. On the contrary, if their issues, perceptions and ideas are not assessed and subsequently addressed opportunely, it may turn into a 'nightmare on street to prosperity.' Therefore, to avoid any debacle, all the problems of youth need to be remedied at the first instance; giving priority to the above-mentioned three most burning issues. Facts 1. Due to lack of guidance and information, 250,000+ students are sufferinannually. 2. 41, 000 students appear in entry tests of medical colleges and only 5,000 of them get admission. 3. 70,000+ students appear in entry tests of engineering institutions and only 7,200 get admission (in PEC accredited programmes). 4. 150,000+ students of other groups are con fused to choose any discipline generation gap Generation gap refers to the difference in the ways of thinking and perception in the people of two different generations which results in behavioral differences and sometimes, conflict among them. In other words, it is the difference in the thinking of the people of the older and younger generation which is generally connoted with the lack of understanding or misunderstanding between them. The most common example of generation gap is seen in the family between parents and their children. It is not only because of the gap in age but also because of the way parents react to a particular situation. Children being very young and immature do not understand the way of thinking of their parents. In many cases, the parents, even if they are matured, do not empathize with the changing values and thinking pattern of the modern world. This creates a communication gap between these two generations. Another main reason for generation gap between parents and children are parents themselves. They do not talk openly to their children and take part in solving their problems. That behavior makes the impression about parents as authoritative persons, in the mind of children, because they only dictate them to do one thing or the other without understanding the problems faced by their children. As a result, the children become mentally isolated from their parents. Some
