In the society, two parallels are running simultaneously, on one hand we hear the news of our armies getting sacrificed on boundaries in order to save the country but at the same time news of youth dying due to overdose of drugs is also doing the rounds. These parallels are not just two directions but it also shows the split of thoughts that our society is going through.
