There is wisdom quote from American native Indian culture. It says:
“Before you take any decision, consider its effect on the next 7 generations!”
Native cultures were dharmic. They teach to take care of cyclic nature of the universe. Opposite to it, our modern culture wishes to put full stop on future of mankind.
In sane cultures of the world, life is never lived by considering selfish pursuits of self. There is always a thought behind actions. Carefully crafted beautiful lives. Unlike such ideal societies, we now have highly self-centered living. And self-centered living starts very early in life now!!
Even a 10 years old school going kid would walk with an idiotic arrogance! “Come what may! I live on my terms!”.
My friends in education industry shocked me when they told me that their students invite them (yeah teachers) to have drinks with them on birthday party!!
Sharing meaning of the word “Binge” as it may be new to many in India. Beware of it. It is changing cultural paradigm in teens. Even in teetotaler by law state Gujarat, I see easy access to drinks for teens!
Read it to realize : act so that your kids don’t turn into zombies! Act before it is too late. Share this with them!
Repeated binge drinking during adolescence can affect brain functions in future generations, potentially putting offspring at risk for such conditions as depression, anxiety, and metabolic disorders, a Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine study has found.
“Adolescent binge drinking not only is dangerous to the brain development of teenagers, but also may impact the brains of their children,” said senior author Toni R. Pak, PhD, an associate professor in the Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.
Sane culture = dharma aligned culture.
