10 Things Our Generation Needs To Leave Behind


10 Things Our Generation Needs To Leave Behind

“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” – Edmund Burke
Most of the people who are reading this post were born in a free, economically resurgent and
forward looking India. Our parents’ generation is responsible for having gotten us this far.
But while they have achieved a lot, they could not succeed in solving a host of
extremely pressing problems and dilemmas facing us today. The baton is in our hands now.
We can choose to maintain the status quo or take a stand and change the society
we all crib about. Here are a few things our generation needs to leave behind.

1. Letting society dictate our lives.
“Log kya kahenge?” This phrase is probably the bane of a young Indian’s life.
For too long, we’ve been letting others tell us what we can or cannot do.
Over time, this has resulted in whole generations of “Yes-Men,” “Pencil-Pushers” and
“Head-Nodders.” Our parents tell us who to marry, our relatives tell us where to work and
our peers decide whether we’re good enough to hang out with them or not. I say, fuck that.
Let’s be comfortable in our own skins, love as we like and work where we please.
As long as you’re a decent human being, it shouldn’t matter what the hell you do.

2. Patriarchy.
We need to get rid of this. We need to get rid of the notion that a man is
superior to a woman and that the latter is the former’s property. This is the mentality
that makes people kill their daughters in the womb. This is what makes assholes think
that they can rape or molest a woman and get away with it. And to get rid of it, we have to
first get rid of it in our homes. The only way to do this is if we teach our sons to
respect our daughters. And our daughters must be taught to respect themselves.

3. Our lack of civic sense.
Indians are known for littering, breaking queues, spitting and urinating in public places.
Doesn’t look good on our rep at all. And no, even the harshest penalties won’t change this.
All of us have to change. That is why our generation is the lynch pin that will decide whether
India’s future will be clean or dirty. Because if we can bring ourselves to change and
develop a semblance of civil behaviour, then our children will imbibe these values as well.

4. Chasing money instead of happiness.
Life is for travelling, loving, having adventures and making a name for yourself.
Not for putting your nose to the grinder and never looking up in a pursuit of money. A lot of us
work jobs we don’t like and hoard money like it’s something we can eat. It’s the reason why
our parents push us into set careers like the civil services, engineering, medicine and
management. Come on now. Life is for living. So let’s live it. Take it from Rancho from
the movie 3 Idiots. “Success ke peechey mat bhago, excellence ka peecha karo,
success jhak maarkey tumharey peechey aayegi.”

5. Public Apathy.
While not all of us are indifferent to the plight of our fellow citizens, we still get to read and
hear about horror stories where people just stood by and did nothing as their fellow man
faced mortal peril or grievous insult. People have done nothing as women got molested in
front of them. The police just stand around accident victims. Recently, when a tiger in a
Delhi zoo mauled a young man who had fallen into its enclosure, it was appalling to see how
people were more concerned about recording the incident on their phones rather than
helping the poor soul out. We need to understand that apathy has its consequences.
God forbid, what if a loved one were in trouble and no one would come forward to help?
What goes around comes around.

6. Our out-dated education system.
Our education system is basically a relic of the British era. Its geared more towards
producing brainless drones for “service” rather than enlightened, confident individuals.
It’s emphasis on rote learning and competition completely takes the joy out of learning.
The teachers don’t care about teaching and the students aren’t interested in “learning.”
Why can’t we take a page from Finland’s book? They have no exams, pay their teachers
like doctors and yet their students consistently score among the best in the world. It’s
going to be tough doing that here, yes. But we can start. Let’s get rid of our so called
“padhey likhey ganwaars.”

7. Looking to the government for solutions to our own problems.
The government didn’t do this. The government didn’t do that. We complain
about our dirty streets and garbage strewn public spaces yet we don’t think twice
before littering. We complain about corruption yet we don’t hesitate to give a bribe to
get things done faster or get away from fines.
Laws and rules can’t change things. It is we who have to change.

8. The “Chalta Hai” attitude.
Let’s accept it. We’re a bit lazy. We tend to turn a blind eye to many things that
bother us, choosing to crib about them endlessly yet taking no steps to address
said problems. “Chalta hai.” But no, when it comes to our everyday lives, “Nahi Chalta Hai!” (It’s not okay.)
Rape nahi chalta hai. Corruption nahi chalta hai. Gundagiri nahi chalti hai. It’s heartening
to see that a lot of us have come to realize this and are taking steps to remedy this behaviour.
Let’s vote. Let’s donate. Let’s teach. Let’s start respecting women.
Let’s take the plunge into politics. Instead of “Chalta Hai,” let’s say, “Aise Nahi Chalega!”

9. Our inferiority complex.
A century British rule had left us with a bit of a colonial hangover.
Not to mention a gigantic inferiority complex. Ever since we gained independence,
we’ve been trying to ape the west. However, since the last decade or so, a lot of
India’s youth are finding themselves and revelling in their own uniquely Indian identity.
Indian businessmen are acquiring assets and making waves abroad. Indian artists are
coming of age. Our athletes are making us proud. And the signs are only getting brighter.
We recently got to Mars at a fraction of the cost it took the U.S to do so. And that too, on the first try.
Things are on the up and up and our morale is higher than ever.
So let’s throw this inferiority crap out and be confident in who we are.

10. Our lack of self-belief.
There’s a lot of negativity in our country. We like sticking to safe and secure
things rather than believing in ourselves and going out on a limb
to prove ourselves and follow our dreams.
But that will change. In fact, it is changing right now.

Because I for one, truly believe that even though we may seem lost and we’ve got a lot
of responsibility on our shoulders, our generation is full up on self-belief and
is definitely going to create a better India.

Stay safe AND save at the pump Looking to purchase a safe, fuel efficient car?


Stay safe AND save at the pump

Looking to purchase a safe, fuel efficient car?

This is a list of the top 10 list of the safest, most fuel efficient cars available in showrooms today.

The vehicles on this list earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

and achieve a minimum score of 38 combined MPG according to EPA tests. Plug-in hybrids and

electric vehicles are excluded from the list.

An an honorable mention, the plug-in hybrids that have earned a five-star NHTSA safety rating are

the 2014 Chevrolet Volt, 2014 Tesla Model S, 2014 Honda Accord plug-in hybrid and 2014 Ford Fusion Energi.

Other notable mentions that barely missed the list is the 2014 Scion tC, which gets a 36-MPG combined

rating and the 2014 Toyota Corolla LE Eco with a 35-MPG combined rating.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars
Kia Optima Hybrid, 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, 2014 Acura ILX Hybrid

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars

9. 2014Lexus ES 300h

The 2014 Lexus ES 300h is an entry-level luxury hybrid sedan, priced from $40,410. Under

the hood is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid setup that provides 200 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque.

The same powertrain is actually used in various Lexus and Toyota hybrids. The Lexus ES 300h gets

40 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway and is good for a 40-mpg combined rating.

For those that prefer to not have a hybrid, the standard Lexus ES 350 gets a 21-MPG city,

31-MPG highway rating, or 24 MPG combined.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars
8. Toyota Avalon Hybrid
Mechanically similar to the Lexus ES 300h, the Toyota Avalon hybrid also has the Japanese

automaker’s 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain with 200 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. With a starting

price of $32,150, the Avalon hybrid is more affordable than the Lexus. Fuel economy

specifications on the Avalon hybrid are identical to the ES 300h with a 40-MPG city,

39-MPG highway rating. And just like the Lexus ES 350, the standard Avalon is rated to

return 21 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars

7. 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid

The popular Toyota Camry hybrid is next on the list and once again, features the same

2.5-liter hybrid powertrain as the Avalon hybrid and Lexus ES 300h. Thanks to improved

aerodynamics compared to its more luxurious counterparts, the Camry hybrid nets better

fuel economy with a 41-MPG combined rating. In the city, it is rated at 43 MPG while on

the highway it receives a 39-MPG rating. Priced from $28,050, the Camry hybrid is also

one of the more affordable vehicles on the list. No wonder it’s so popular.

As for the standard Toyota Camry, expect to get 25 MPG in the city and 35 MPG on the highway.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars

6. 2014 Toyota Prius v

No list of fuel efficient cars would be complete without an entry from the Prius family.

The Prius v is actually the only Prii (Toyota’s plural term for the Prius) model that has

earned a five-star safety rating from NHTSA. It features a 1.8-liter hybrid power train that

provides 98 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque. Priced from $27,560, the longer Prius sports

wagon-like hatchback style while getting 44 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway,

good for a 42-MPG combined rating.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars

5. 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid

Another luxury entry on the list is the 2014 Lincoln MKZ hybrid, which gets 45 MPG across

the board (city, highway, combined). Under the hood is the American automaker’s 2.0-liter

Atkinson cycle four-cylinder hybrid powertrain that provides 141 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque to

the front wheels. But the MKZ hybrid’s starting price of $36,085 makes it one of the more

expensive cars on the list – second only to the Lexus ES 300h.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars

4. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid

The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta hybrid offers a good balance between fuel economy, performance and

affordability. Priced from $28,465, the Jetta hybrid features a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder hybrid

powertrain that churns out a respectable total system output of 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Its

combined fuel economy rating is actually the same as the MKZ hybrid, but the Jetta gets 42 MPG

in the city and 48 MPG on the highway.

There’s also the Jetta TDI, which gets 30 MPG in the city and 42 MPG on the highway for a 34-MPG

combined rating. Then there’s the standard gasoline-powered Jetta which nets 26 MPG in the city and

36 MPG on the highway.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars

3. 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid

The 2014 Honda Civic sedan model is refreshed for the 2014 model year. With a 1.5-liter

four-cylinder hybrid powertrain, the Civic sedan gets 110 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, the second

weakest on the list to the Prius v. It does provide 44 MPG in the city and 47 MPG on the highway,

which is good for a 45-MPG combined rating. And with a starting price tag of $25,425 the

Honda Civic hybrid is a compelling option for safety and fuel economy.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars

2. 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid

Love Honda but want more power and even better fuel economy than the Civic sedan hybrid?

The 2014 Honda Accord hybrid might be the choice for you, getting an impressive 50 MPG in

the city and 45 MPG on the highway, which is good for a 47-MPG combined rating. Under the

hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder hybrid powertrain providing 141 hp and 122 lb-ft of torque and

the Accord is priced competitively within the marketplace with a starting MSRP of $29,945.

It also comes with Honda’s newest hybrid powertrain, which means the promised fuel economy

will be easier to achieve in daily driving.

As for the standard 2014 Honda Accord, expect to get 27 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars

1. 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid

Topping the list is the Ford Fusion hybrid. Although it has the same 47-MPG combined rating as

the Honda Accord, it ranks higher on the list because of its lower price tag. The Ford Fusion

hybrid starts at $27,095 and offers slightly more performance than the Accord hybrid with

129 lb-ft of torque, though it also has 141 hp. The powertrain is the same as the Lincoln MKZ hybrid,

a 2.0-liter Atkinson Cycle four-cylinder setup.

Of course there’s also the Ford Fusion Energi, which is a plug-in hybrid that we mentioned earlier.

That variant is good for a 100-MPGe combined rating while the standard gasoline-powered

Fusion gets a 25-MPG city, 37-MPG highway rating.
