Youth Getting Astray by Modern Materialistic Approach
Today, all markets are flooded with attractive, expensive consumer goods which tempt the young generation to get them, by hook or crook. Well before you start saying a ‘No’ to it lets just think about it, can you leave your Smartphone for even a day? I guess it a big no. Well then there you go you are a ‘materialist’.
The definition of being materialistic is pretty simple, when you start yourself connecting too deeply with the materials and when it becomes an inseparable part of your life, you become a materialist, for whom the ‘things’ matter more than anything. Materials actually have got imbibed very deeply in our life and it is indeed hard to live without them even for a day, but is it natural to lead such life? We rarely get to have quality time with ourselves; we keep ourselves so busy with these materials around us to run away from our crowd of thoughts in our heads, not for one second now you can sit down and do nothing at all. While the materialistic generation is growing the human contact is decreasing day by day, friends get together now and soon start checking their Smartphone and soon everybody just quietly sitting remains engulfed in their phones. It is not that those things are not important; the point is to choose correctly between priorities and to be able to decide what is more important at that moment.
Materials only serve some particular purposes and they should not become as important as life itself. The youth is getting astray by the modern materialistic approach. Try to move towards your heart rather than mind, try to feel the wind for once; it’s been long since you have done, since you have started taking everything for granted. Start living again through the heart and find the peace within.
Care and Respect
India is a land of cultural diversity. Tourism in India is important for the country's economy and is growing rapidly. Recently, I went to Gate Way of India with my friends for an outing where I observed the local guides following and pestering the foreign tourists. I could clearly see the irritation and disgust in the eyes of the tourists. It made me so disturbed that I decided to share my views and concern over the image of our city and country that is being tarnished by such acts.
The ministry of tourism is reportedly in talks with the home ministry on ways to deal with touts who harass tourists. Tourists often weigh the dread alongside the grandeur of India before deciding to visit it. The effects of our tarnished reputation are beginning to tell. The Narendra Modi government recognises tourism’s potential for job creation and revenue. The Centre is keen on developing 50 tourist circuits, increasing trained manpower, and developing websites and apps. There are several other things governments can do to improve the tourist experience. The focus on touts at monuments is overdue. Women travelling solo experience a lot of staring by men which is offensive and inappropriate. Crowd management is improving in parts but is also a work in progress. In order to show our real potential all throughout the world, we have to maintain respect for travellers from all across the world.
The Indian tourism experience is marked by a lack of civility for many. A public campaign by the Prime Minister could help in this regard. The real fix is in skilling and job creation, which will wean people away from desperate, unsavoury tactics as they make a living on the margins of the tourism sector.
