It’s the year 2113. A major museum is running an exhibition on life and culture as it was in 2013. You’re asked to write an introduction for the show’s brochure. What will it say?
2013 was the year power changed hands. Not from one party to another but it was the most important change that ever happened. Power transferred from the old to the young. The youth were standing up and were taken notice of more than ever. This marked the beginning of progress in the 21st century and that is what has brought society to the flourishing year of 2113.
Communication was faster than ever with instant status updates, photo sharing and chatting. But these were not merely means to keep up with your friends. Facebook and Youtube users had the potential to change the world and the young ones began cleaning up the world using this opportunity. Being in the prime of your youth in 21st century was a privilege- they were opening up channels of peace, standing upto terrorists and promoting inter cultural relations.

A sixteen year old who stood up to a terrorist organization along with her millions of supporters led the movement to find lasting solutions to terrorism and enable equal opportunities to education to children all round the globe.
As youngsters took to the streets in India, they convinced those in power to pass women’s rights bills and now India is the safest country for women.
Those who were once seen as children merely capable of playing with toys and fooling around, proved that their young ambition could in fact move mountains. The youth have set records, beaten the records and set more, removed corrupted and formed honest governments and brought us where we are today!
