After a keen observation of today's society particularly youth he concluded that the present system is producing a consumerist personality, concentrated on self only. It has lost volunteerism totally. The only way to sustainable development is an accurate infrastructure at every level or voluntary involvement of masses especially youth in every kind of development system, that needs an integrated personality but the circumstances are producing disintegrated personalities considering all the dimensions and the features of the age.
