BEHAVIOUR CHANGE IN TODAY’S YOUTH (Opinion)


Read Time2 Minute, 47 Second

IT HAS BEEN TRUTHFULLY ASSERTED THAT YOUTH IS HAPPY BECAUSE IT HAS THE CAPACITY TO SEE BEAUTY. TODAY’S YOUTH WITHOUT A SHADOW OF DOUBT IS REGARDED AS THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF OUR NATION, YET I WANT TO RAISE A QUESTION THAT “DOES THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR NATION IS ONLY DEPENDENT UPON THE SUPERFICIAL SKILL SET OF OUR YOUTH??”

I know a lot of us to possess numerous number of questions regarding our youth like for instance-

*Nowadays our generation has become more susceptible towards resorting their depression and anxiety issues by consuming various sort of drugs what’s the reason behind this?

*Will they are able to manage their professional as well as their personal lives in similitude?

*Why does this generation succumb against the pressure they’ve been involved in?

Yeah, I know a lot of questions can be permuted from the above-mentioned title and why shouldn’t they? after all, that’s one of the most talked-about topic globally (According to various reports) 

Change is the law of nature and it is inevitable,  but too much magnitude of alteration has it’s own repercussions. Let’s roll back our timeline 10-20 years ago,  it probably was our parents or elderly people’s youth days so we are acquainted with our parents current status and life long journey.

Me myself being an engineer would like to compare the situations of now and then, UPSC has been conducting the same examination (IES/IAS) from a long time the number of available seats in a particular year is literally diminishing gradually and so does the confidence of many aspirants.

Undoubtedly many engineers aspire to procure this prestigious occupation but not every runner running in a race has the same speed yet they play and work hard to win a single race and it’s hard to accept the defeat after investing a lot.

Not only this engineering sector but many more areas are enforcing an immense amount of stress on our generation so they are liable to give up after receiving a lot.

So far we’ve only talked about the academic change of behaviour of our generation but what about other psychological aspects nowadays “Social media is considered to be a necessary evil”, now what’s with this notion? Apparently it has played a crucial role in bridging the long-distance amongst the people.

But let me tell you something I’ve seen my closed ones texting each other and quarrelling over petty things even when they are surrounded by the same four walls of a room I mean can’t they just talk verbally? does texting to someone can ensure that they’ll comprehend the feeling behind it?. Thus, that essence of realistic understanding surely is degrading.

Oh Yes! when we talk about today’s youth the word relationships come hand in hand.

I can go on record and state that the number of love marriages and probability of sustaining those relations was more in former years well I don’t intend to subdue the status of today’s love lives, after all, there are many platforms available digitally which connects various ladies and gentlemen, but still, there is vast difference in “recognizing and knowing.” The materialistic affection surely has vanquished subjective affection.
