The pandemic has left everyone wearisome and dissipating. But it’s taking a dissimilar toll on different generations in an average Indian household.

Most generations have innate insecurity, in both literal and psychic ways. The grandparents are reminded of the ghosts of partition while parents are distressed with inadequate cash flow in their businesses. The anxiety along with the added amplification of the internet is a reason for the growing existential crisis amongst children.

Younger generations are renouncing the cultural expectations set by the older generations. The probability of emotional disbalance, due to resentment, mysterious problems, and long-term bitterness, is higher.
