Indian Success Stories
Chapters 5 and 6 illuminate two major life decisions which in the past were made by parents or elders: education and marriage. They were of major concern to young people who negotiate ways to participate in the decision process. Chapter Five explores the nail-biting, agonizing importance of education for the middle class in India. More often than not, young adults pursued the careers that their parents had chosen for them. Education was a means to an end. But the young generation increasingly considered education and career a means to self-fulfilment. More and more young adults were struggling with their parents to follow their hearts while preserving close family ties.
