The NeXt – Life & Beyond

Undoubtedly, human being is one of the most curious species of earth. We all are curious about veiled, untold, unrevealed future, meaning, the neXt moment. We are curious to know the next, first and fast. We’re a generation that largely resists labels and refuses to be categorized, so it’s curious that so many millennials obsessively read their horoscopes. According to a study, 58 percent of 18-24-year-old Americans believe astrology is scientific. Here in Bangladesh, the percentage will be higher. People here read horoscopes in daily newspapers but interesting they invest time and money to know their own future and also to know the future of their children, family, cast and country as well. Many of them worry about everything may happen in the future but do nothing now. It means people are more serious to know about the next moments earlier they arrive there. Fear of uncertain Future breaks the heart or spirit to live now at this moment. We are not thinking about the conscious and well-rounded people who are balanced in their life and living but we are focusing those rest of the people who are more in the number, who are not well balanced and not hopeful.

Bangladesh has earned the demographic dividend having 157 million people with a majority percentage of youths. The entire nation includes the government, politicians, educationalists, social workers, NGOs, parents, teachers are working hard to shape the future of those youths. But unfortunate people and planners of our country do not have much idea about the future trend and how they can render the future. They blindly believe in Shadhu Baba (fake priests) to know and to act in the future. This event in Bangladesh will help people from all professions, from housewives to corporates, farmers to teachers, parents to policymakers to rethink about the role to play now to create a happier life they want in future.
