Much has been said and written about how the youth today is far removed from the values that make a good human being. While the elders continue to fret over the loss of values and morals among the young, they, on the other hand, are treading on a path, unaware of the consequences.
The Page 3 culture, which has become the hallmark of this generation, is being adopted by almost everyone.
In their bid to be counted among the 'in' crowd, youngsters have failed to see the good and the bad of this phenomenon. They consider it 'cool' to be seen at the most happening parties in the city. At parties like these, alcohol flows freely and all inhibitions are shed. Unfortunately, we are bracing this culture with open arms.
The generation Y seems to have lost respect for elders. They are blindly aping the western culture where elders are considered to be the interfering radical. Massive cultural erosion is corrupting the innocent minds of the young. They seemed to have lost sanctity for all relationships and are leading a self-conceited life.
The young brigade lives for itself and throws everything else to the wind.
For them, life is a huge party and in their bid to party hard, they are, unconsciously ruining their life. No matter how much the parents try to ward them off the bad track, the peer pressure is so much that they succumb to it and follow the herd mentality.
