A friend sent a link to a video that shows 2 girls smoking smack and cigarettes in what looks like a hostel room. Neither this is something totally new nor as a man, I have any right to say that girls shouldn’t do this. When boys are doing all this why not girls ? But something visual like this does make an impact and makes you think like where we are heading ?
The reason why I think it marks a new low in our society is something else. Alcohol and drugs related issues are not very new to Punjab. It was there since our grandfathers’ generation or even before. But even in those times women were the members of the family who saved the homes and families even in the cases where men of the house were drunkards or drug addicts. They worked hard to save whatever little they could. They would work in the fields, do small house hold jobs and what not. Aim was to keep the house running. But now when women have taken to drugs like this, it makes me really really sad about what our future holds for us.
Not sure how much one can do as an individual but most certainly all these things aren’t good signs.
May God save us from this disaster.
