All of us have seen many unsuccessful love stories on big screen, on TV serials & in our day to day life as well, this is happening very frequently all over, its number is increasing rapidly.One may say that these are happening in society all because of parents, elders who don't allow for love marriage, inter-cast marriages & one should get freedom to get marry where ever he/ she wants irrespective of cast, faith, believes, religion.But it is not so, freedom is not the solution, this freedom is also causing problems as we can see in western countries & Indian metro cities, where high divorce rates, relationships breakup, many problems because of this boys & girls suffer even when parents give freedom to choose their life partner.So these are consequences of freedom, as we all have seen it, and many such cases like this. so just by getting freedom youth would not get peace. The actual cause of problem is free mixing, uncontrolled senses & GOD less society.Free mixing of man & woman is one of main cause which is resulting in unsuccessful love stories, many people have been suffering, their lives have become miserable, many have committed suicide & many suffering tension, depression & other mental diseases, many have been killed, in India we have been seeing owner killing as well, where parents kill their own children.In previous times all these miseries were very rare because parents used to arrange marriage of their children that also in their early age, boys & girls don't had much ex-poser of each other, no co-education, there used to be separate facilities for education for girls & boys. there were no offices, job requirements where they had to work together, not much free mixing of boys & girls, almost no opportunity to make friendship, there were no Mobiles, Facebook, Internet, society has recently developed all these which are facilitating free mixing.Another cause of problem is uncontrolled senses, we all have very strong desire to enjoy & our senses are not at all in our control, as Krishna said in Bhagavad GitaThe senses are very strong and impulsive, act without thought & care, they forcibly carry away the mind even of a man of discrimination who is endeavoring to control them. Bhagavad Gita 2.60While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises. Bhagavad Gita 2.62From anger, complete delusion arises, and from delusion bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost, and when intelligence is lost one falls down again into the material pool. Bhagavad Gita 2.63But a person free from all attachment and aversion and able to control his senses through regulative principles of freedom can obtain the complete mercy of the Lord. Bhagavad Gita 2.64.Bhagavad Gita 2.65 For one thus satisfied [in Krishna consciousness], the threefold miseries of material existence exist no longer; in such satisfied consciousness, one's intelligence is soon well established.Bhagavad Gita 2.66 One who is not connected with the Supreme [in Krishna consciousness] can have neither transcendental intelligence nor a steady mind, without which there is no possibility of peace. And how can there be any happiness without peace?
