The Past

To those born after Independence, the goal was survival and leading a normal life without taking undue risks & unexpected surprises. Getting a good education, having a government job with a nice loving family was a dream for many and people felt arrived when their life provided these things to them.

Technology changed everything

Post Liberalization, India saw a massive rise in the services industry and with the foreign investments grew strong as it saw a huge rise in middle class population across India.

The Present — Did Globalization make Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) so Rampant?

People want to earn their living fast. They see International Movie stars, Youtubers, Singers, musicians, magicians, politicians, entrepreneurs and athletes who are younger than them earning millions and want to replicate the same level of success.

Future — Things you will see are “Mostly” fabricated

The real life which famous people live cannot be shown by any Vlog. You may capture some Tit Bits of their life but you can never tell whether the person has good or bad motives for you.


Be careful when following someone’s advice on the Internet because most times people have hidden intentions and they seldom have your interest in mind.
