Recently a survey was conducted in our college to hold a discussion on sex among youth. Questions such as- whether you would prefer to be in a live-in relation or not? and Will you ever loose your virginity before marriage? were being openly discussed. The students were asked to come out and involve actively in such survey. The result was quite surprising as 70% of the population said that they won’t mind loosing their virginity before marriage while 30% of the people were against it.
But the main question is that will our society be able to accept such reactions coming from the youth ? We asked this question from middle-aged people and their answers to both the questions were clearly in contrast to the ones given by the youth. 98% of the middle-aged population said no and only 2% voted for yes. The said that this westernization means disrespect of our culture, our beliefs etc. The youth is enjoying what all their parents dislike.The real question is whether this is right or wrong? For youth it is right but it is not for the ancestors This fight will be on and it is a never ending fight as the youth and the elders can never settle on the same terms. They will never accept it. Today the fight is on living relationship or having sex. Tomorrow the fight might be on having children without marriage or a single parent having child. No conclusion can be drawn out of this yet but the truth today is that our youth has accepted this westernization with open hands. — About the Author: The article has been contributed by our intern, Ashima Sachdeva.
