Ludhiana: The youngsters are the future of the nation and to simplify, it can be called as that the future of the nation is in danger.
The youngsters are more inclined towards adapting the western culture and seek high living standards for themselves to live. The impact of westernisation is so profound that without giving a single thought, they are crazy to imply that pragmatically to the lives of their own. They are more into their fantasy world than realising the reality and to some extent social networking sites are responsible to drag them to this very level. Such reasons make them indulge in substance abuse. The students face stress because of poor educational reforms and structure is another reason for them to indulge in drug abuse.
According to Dr. Ajaypal Sandhu (a medical practitioner from Fortis Hospital) more cases of school going students are coming nowadays. These cases are based on drugs mostly. The reason behind it is that the students are facing more stress of studies these days and due to which they start taking drugs as they are misguided that it will bring them that needed relief.
Initially, the cases were more of college going students that they are addicted of hard drugs but now according to the record, hard drugs are commonly taken by the school going students, he revealed.
Ajaypal added that earlier, there were joint families, which helped the kids to embibe with moral values to them. But now, more nuclear families exist and are not able to provide their kids the knowledge to choose the correct pathway to follow on their lives.
Experts claimed that concept of neighbourhood has not seen among the children though students do not share their sorrows and happiness with each other. With the effect of this, children are having low confidence level and less decision making power. Parents are more worried about the future of kids and keep on pressurising their kids to work hard and give more and more time to study, which further results in depression in kids.
Experts also revealed that the pressure among students makes them helpless and they commit suicide most of the times. As more suicide cases of students are observed in the hospitals. The kids are also misusing the social networking sites these days. The reason found behind it by the experts is that they are given least time by their parents. So, they adapt such habits, which then result in negative addictions in regular life.
