Gen X: The Big Question

May 06th 2006 - Where is my life going?'That's a question that you face a lot if you are a youngster trying to make it in the madness that's today's world. The reasons that can throw you off your plans can be wide-ranging girlfriend/boyfriend trying your patience, the job not coming your way, boss just being his mean self or spouse insisting that the last 'outstation meeting'was more than just official work.

And when it starts becoming one worry too much, it is time to head to the nearest fortune teller. And if they are to be believed, the worries and concerns of the Gen Next have changed 360 degrees from those of the generation before. So none of those 'will I get married', 'will I go abroad'or 'will I earn well', for them. As Tarot card reader Bindoo Maira says, ''This is a very ambition-driven generation that knows who they are and what they want from life.


The oft asked question, in these times of talent hunt contests, remains 'when will I be famous?'''She goes on to explain how the age-old marriage question has also seen a twist these days. "The traditional question 'when will I get married'is always accompanied by 'will it last'." These quick-fix solutions have become so popular that Tarot-card readers are being seen regularly at coffee shops and other popular hang outs in the city. "There are a few questions to which I have no answer. And there is so much stress in life, so everything helps,"says Neha Rao, a DU student.

Tarot card reader Poonam Sethi feels that most of the questions are result of a plethora of choices that face this generation. "They want to achieve a lot and their parents stop them from doing that. Marriage is the last thing on their mind and that leads to problems at home and uncertainty in their lives,"she explains. Feng Shui expert Geeta Kapoor agrees with her, "So many youngsters come to me with the question that 'I am frustrated with life, what should I do?"'
