Unlike today. Through impartial and intensive observations,Unlike today. Through impartial and intensive observations,

Unlike astrologers who need the relative positions of celestial bodies to predict future, one only needs the characteristic tendencies of the nation and the psychological bent of the minds of the youth to predict how a country will be in ten years from today. Through impartial and intensive observations, it can be said that India, by 2028, will change and it will change for good. With the perils of the prevalent Indian education system coming into limelight, the standard of schooling will improve. From the exam-centric culture of education, which is indifferent to the uniqueness of a child, it will witness a shift towards learner-centric culture. People will dare not frown at others for following their passions. They will understand how choices lie much beyond being an engineer or a doctor. The subtle wave of change can already be felt brushing past with parents enrolling their children in vocational courses like patisserie, gardening, shoe designing, cosmetology and more. However, by 2028, it will be in full swing. Further, feminism from the urban social platforms will jump into the minds of rural women, making them socially and economically independent. As a result, the concept of matrimony will evolve. With both genders equally ambitious, they will consider marriage more liberally. Live-in-relationships will be a common scenario and it will not be looked down upon by people as it is today. This will bring mass awakening to methods of birth control. The sacred nuptial bond will not be tied before mid 30s and once it is, “Hum do, Humara ek” will be exercised to improve the standards of living and to promote a healthy life. The inclination towards capitalist economy and emphasis on entrepreneurial development training programs will give rise to ample enterprises leading to copious employment opportunities. The social aspect of human life will also turn 360 degrees. The number of Indian globetrotters will multiply. The society will also become more tolerant towards LGBTQ community. However, it is hard to say whether the Tom and Jerry relationship between the media and the B-stars will cease. In my opinion, ten years down the lane, media will still be running after Taimur and the Khans with their heirs will still be competing to release films and join the 100 crore club. But I don’t really mind this, until I, a self-confessed aficionado of cinema, is provided with thought provoking movies. Therefore, India by 2028 will be a better place to live in or so I like to believe.
