Let us demolish this "somehow" culture of Indian youthSocial media and the internet have taught Indian youth too many good things. But the same things have also taught them all the bad and unhealthy things. A couple of weeks ago, I was stumped by one mother who explained that her twenty-year-old son, now just into the second year of college, was "somehow" interested in getting married to his classmate, who not only belonged to a different community but was extremely rich. She complained that the boy was so much distracted and did not attend the online classes at all. His father tried to discipline him but has failed.
He is not alone. The "somehow" culture, is a big menace. Statements like "I somehow want to become very rich", "I somehow want one crore rupees in ten years" are so common. Parents have a crucial role in explaining that there is no free lunch anywhere in society. Every young man needs a good education and a good job. Only after he has settled down should he even think of marriage. And positively not at the age of twenty, when he is just a student.
Whether it is love or making money or getting married, everything should be earned. No girl can be forced to fall in love. The ridiculous ways in which this is often shown in the movies should never ever be copied. Every single day, every human being has to do his or her role. Everything depends on hard work. And dedication. And sincerity and commitment. Nothing else will work.
It is high time that we, collectively do a lot about demolishing this "somehow" culture of Indian youth.
