Editor's Letter Quoting one of the most famous sayings “A pen is mightier than sword”, this has always been my vision in life. I want to touch hearts through writing. I want to empower youths through writing. I want to CHANGE the world through writing. Welcome to the first issue of the Jaago Punjab Youth Magazine (JPYM)! When I was thinking about how to involve youths in creativity; the first thing that came to my mind was through writing. Writing is expressing your views. Your opinions. Your crazy ideas. Your thoughts. Your freedom of speech. Your desires ...and the list is pretty much endless. The first issue dishes out a diverse range of topics- from eminent New York writer Navdeep Singh Dhillon who talks about what’s wrong in today’s Punjabi Music Industry to bloggers who write about how the practice of meditation can overpower the addiction of drugs. In addditon to that, we also bring you a crazy and bubbly psychiatrist Rishika Sharma who gives realistic advices on drug abuse. We also bring you helpful tips from a psychology student - Sneha Kukreja who conveys the message And most importantly not to forget our artist of the month- Ikdip Kaur Brar who has contributed to our cover photo of the Magazine and is our Art Editor. We look forward to hear more from you! I ENCOURAGE YOU ALL TO CONTRIBUTE TO OUR MAGAZINE! This is for the youth and by the youths! If you are artist, a photographer, a writer, a poet, a singer or a healthcare professional or even a Punjab lover: Then please send us your contributions to punjabjaago@gmail.com I dream of a drug-free-state-of-Punjab. Do YOU? Anureet Kaur Founder of Jaago Punjab
