The Ocean in a Drop: Inside - Out Youth Leadership Paperback – 22 Jan 2013
About the Book: The Ocean In A Drop: Inside-Out Youth Leadership The Ocean in a Drop explores how young people have contributedsignificantly to society in the past, and suggests ways in whichthey can take centre stage again. Traditionally, society haslegitimized four spaces for young people: the family, friends,education/careers, and leisure. The book introduces the concept ofthe 5th Space-a space that goes beyond the commonly used terms ofvolunteerism and Active Citizenship and focuses on three criticalaspects of youth development: understanding the Self, buildingmeaningful relationships, and impacting Society. By facilitating young people to connect their selves withsociety and by developing skills, values, and attitudes that enablethem to impact the world around them, 5th Spaces become a criticalstrategy for renewing society. From the lessons learnt from the Indian Independence movement,theories of youthhood, interviews with key stakeholders, andPravahs own experiences of working with young people, the bookargues that youth once again need to be at the forefront of nationbuilding.
