FUTURE ORIENTATION AND TEA GARDEN YOUTH OF ASSAM: A CASE STUDY

BOSCO EKKA, DR MANODA T. SANGMA

Abstract

The present study is done on the future orientation of youth in the tea garden concerning the five basic processes of future orientation: family life, planning, time perspective, decision-making and career. The research examines the relationship between future orientation, decision-making, planning, temporal perspective and work in family life. How do young people see the future in the tea garden? Are they pessimists or optimists? Do their perspectives differ from culture to culture? Do young people actively participate in shaping their self-chosen future or are they just observing them? What effects does globalization have on young culture? What do schools teach about the future? This study answers these and several other questions. To get a complete picture, the researchers used a quantitative method for social science studies. The sample size for quantitative data is 60 and questionnaires are used to collect information. The SPSS program is used for statistical evaluation and explanation of the findings. The results show that today's youth is not only a problem with the future but also a social problem. To remedy the problem, research on interventions in social work would be the ideal starting point.
