Katpadi, 01 August 2012: Most of the crimes taking places in the society these days, as we see in the news media, are related to young generation. The modern education, attraction towards the internet, western culture, corrupt political system, desire to become rich and also the external attraction are destroying the moral values. The rich culture of India is out of shape today and as a result the younger generation is going into the wrong path, said former Rotary District Deputy Governor B. Pundalika Marathe.

By joining more youths in the club this revolution has to be strengthened, he said.
