I'm 23, graduated last year from a supposedly 'premier' law college, and after one year of jumping from one thing to another, have finally just managed to secure a position in an unrelated field which pays about 40K a month in bangalore.
Only two of my friends (from my batch) have landed permanent, decent jobs which pay enough for them to save anything. Half my batch is either still preparing for some exam or grinding it out in litigation, making barely peanuts.
90 per cent of the 'lawyers' are from much shittier colleges, and I can only imagine the situation they are in. This is not to mention the hordes of enginiggers who are either totally unemployable in their fields or are wageslaving for 20-25K a month.
If I stick to this job, maybe in 3-4 years I'll make twice what i'm making now. But then rents would have also increased a shit ton. It almost seems like a hopeless endeavour trying to imagine reaching a similar socio-economic position my father has, who is easily able to save more than a lakh a month after all expenses and has accumulated multiple crores of assets.
But alas, I guess I'll still be doing/ am doing much better than most of the overall population, especially men, who've been basically told to fuck off by both sides of the political aisle. 2/3rds of the students who got placed from my batch were females. Most law firms are increasingly becoming female dominated, especially at the entry levels. I'm sure this same pattern is repeating across other white-collar industries.
Even where i'm working now (a non-legal profession), females have an easy path to a full time offer. I had to grind my ass as an intern for four fucking months to be able to receive a job offer, while these bitches, who do a much shittier job than me, got theirs as soon as they showed up at the office.
My point being, these processes are only going to accelerate. Wealth concentration is accelerating across the globe, and India is no exception, you can see all sorts of different 'wealth reports' to see for yourself just how much more rapidly are the top echelons of the society accumulating more and more wealth.
In the future, it is likely we'll be stuck in a dystopian middle income trap like brazil, with similar, if not worse levels of income and wealth inequality. On top of this, we have an ever growing islamic minority, turning more and more areas into ungovernable medieval ghettos. Bhims are also reproducing a lot faster than they should be, making for another nail in our demographic coffin.
We need all this to crash and burn. Then there's at least some chance at rejuvenation, and rebirth. Otherwise, all is anyways going to be destroyed and ended.
