The following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

Acharya Prashant (AP): We need to see a lot of young people traveling on their own. We need to see a lot of young people living all by themselves for very long years, many, many long years. We need to see these things.

And we need to see young people who are much more socially conscious. When I said they are living all by themselves, that does not mean that they are socially cut off. They are relating to the wider society in a purposeful, productive, creative way. They are not just going and rebating themselves to one male or one female and declaring that the two of them are their entire universe. That’s what happens, you know. When you say you are in love, especially when you are freshly in love, you say, “It’s the two of us, and that’s our world.” No, not that way.

When you are really comfortable with yourself, then you find that you have gained the power and the expanse to relate with a hundred people without making any of them extraordinarily and pathologically special to yourself.
