Permissiveness should not become arroganceTalk of Gen Y and their expensive spending habits. Talk of their obsession with electronic gadgets that is now becoming a Pan-India problem. Talk of their engagement with a 72 year old Superstar called Rajnikanth, and their obsession with loud music of all kinds ( the latest craze is the Tiger Ka Hukum song from his forthcoming movie).
Increasing permissiveness takes many forms. The Gen Y think that anything associated with old people or any advise from the elders is just not worth taking notice of, or even listening to. They are fed with stories of how to become independent, and are quite well aware that Engineering or Medicine are no more careers where one can make huge money.
While their awareness and confidence is fine, their obsession with matters related to their own worlds, does create a situation where the "Only Me" attitudes quickly take over, particularly before the age of 14.
This kind of development is not metro or big city specific. It is common to the developing small towns and cities as well. Parents are having the toughest of times relating to such children.
