Hi Friends, Last week we all cousins had gathered at my masi's place and chit-chatting we landed on the topic on the life that the current generation leads. We get to hear so much these days as to how good or bad the kids are and how irresponsible they are acting. I think it has a lot to do with their upbringing as well...even thou it may not be the case always. Here is an example of how irresponsible adults are in order to have fun in life they forget that they are setting wrong examples to their kids (I hope they know who is the father of their child) This incident had happened to my cousins BIL about 10-11 yrs ago in mumbai. He was invited to dinner by a friend of his. The trend in many of the friends groups is to gather on weekends have alcohol, non-veg talk all nonsense, crack non-veg jokes etc. and when it is time to call it a day is when the actual fun begins. All the male members throw their car keys in a bowl then close their eyes and pick one each. The lady of that car spends the night with whomsoever gets her car keys. Today in india we see lot of live-in relations even in graduating kids and those who are out of their hometown on pretext of working in a different state/city. People look down on prostitutes who are maybe forced in the profession or doing it out of necessity. But what do we call these so called high society people who indulge in such acts. Not that i am against it ...but are these the values that we want the next generation to imbibe?? Indians have aped the west but not inherited any of the good qualities of the west. Roopa. No offence meant to anyone.
