Are drug addicts at fault?
On one hand, the human race is on the peak of development. Besides the Moon, Mars has been grabbed under technology. New hopes and discoveries are emerging. Robotic technology is on the way to take place of human intervention. Artificial Intelligence is in a fast developing mode and there is much more to come at a faster rate.
On the other hand the future of mankind is at stake. The uses of drugs, tobacco, alcohol and other drugs have put the society in deep slumber. The track is leading to disaster of the future generation besides wars and global conflicts. The morality has taken a vanishing mode. The long old traditional, social and cultural ethos has become a disgrace before the modern youth.
The relations have lost their fervent and feeling. Even blood relations fade especially parental relations are losing its sanctity. Now old age homes are must to be established besides the western countries are establishing these from a long time ago. It is a clear sign of moral bankruptcy.
The women folk are at risk. The cases of domestic violence and rapes have taken a daily routine. Flesh trade is at peak and there is no barrier of ages. Thus the gap between the relations of human race and the animal race has come closer.
Now the question arises as to why the new generation is leaning towards this menace so quickly and easily. Is the young generation responsible? Are the drug addicts at fault? Are the parents and teachers responsible? If not then what is the reason ……???
I think that the whole of our society especially policy makers are mostly responsible. Our education is not full filling the demands that youths need. Our system is mall functioning. Our policies are not perfect to fulfill our future requirements. We are scattered having individual selfish thoughts and deeds.
We are in competition without a worth. We are resourceful but having no access to utilize our resources. We are indulged in non profitable developmental programmes and running our race without aim and hope. We are not dedicated to ourselves even. We have disowned our society, our own language, culture and all other traditions resulting in our divergent fragmented look on targets and aim.
We need the best education rather than improving on our literacy rates and seeking degrees. Education system needs a priority which gives remedy to all aliments of social disorder. We need best political system which can frame best policies. We need good departmental and social relations to save our resources leading to our prosperity. We need a work culture in society rather than competing our lively hood for false egos. We need best policies to handle our backbone resources especially agriculture which can sufficiently feed the society.
We need to learn as parents and new parenthood methods need to be applied while dealing with the kids. Parents should not push their wards to become money making machines and forcefully make them to compete under stress.
The teachers should not use tough rules and tactics to mount pressure on student performance which instead results in overloading of students capacity creating tension. The social stigma especially found in females compels the families to withstand the challenges of falsehood to maintain the decorum among others.
In all circumstances the people need to be handled with patience, sympathy and counseling to lead their lives in a proper way.
Now-a-days it is not only the male young who indulge in disaster but young females also have followed the path and taken the lead. It is the super modern age and new methods of drugs have been discovered, by which the involved persons satisfy themselves.
This leads to the physical as well as mental agony in the youths and gives rise to the crime rate in the society.
In reality the menace of drugs and other such abuses is the result of tension, anxiety, high competition for low resources, injustice, and lack of work culture, bribery, unemployment and frustration.
These drawbacks lead the youth to use of drugs for relieving their burden. Thus the drug addicts are not at fault but our wrong policies and faulty systems of the society push them to this menace of drugs.
We all have to think, plan and work together to have an end to this disaster.
