'Postponing work'; How does it apply for an 'Academic', Are such becomes part of a social issue?

i think individuals postpone their work due to various reasons. Other than work there is always a private life of every human creature. Some reasons are unavoidable or inevitable,  i believe. Recently i overheard a conversation between two gentlemen about ages of their children. after hearing the ages of the children of his friend one of the questions immediately the other friend asked was ' why they are at this age' At what age did you get marry?'

if you take things, life events etc postponing relate to your private life, you cannot analyze the reasons such as above mentioned, putting them into the categories; 'personal reasons' since you are a 'creature - member' of this complex society. Some sociologists analyze such things as a social issue. For youngsters of the countries, Asian even in 2015 or in the 21st Century we live, 'unmarried children' is a burden' not only socially but also culturally. unlike in some other societies in the societies like ours parents still think that it is a responsibility of the parents.  Parents or the Adultery Population including the 'relatives, kins' believe that Children who comes to the stage of 'YOUNG and are ready both physically and emotionally, for a marriage shouldn't be stayed at home. For some of them reasons are varied socially, economically, culturally. If you take an eras that ' the youngster' of this country involved in certain acceptable and unacceptable activities, 'seeking for a better society with all sort of things they need' such as 'Better Education', 'Better Employment Opportunities', Equal Rights - Employment'; Equal Pay, Justifiable Pay', Better Political and Social Environment to achieve such.  That Era was politically known as 'The JVP' Struggle, 87 - 89 Blood sheded era. The youngsters of that era had to chose a strategy or  a method that no youngsters or groups have not not used to achieve what they want. They were practiced and Trained to achieve what they expected from this society, political framework  using even weapons. Within the Group they were not allowed to even maintain any affairs with opposite sex until they achieve their missions (?. i do not know at what length they practiced it.   so within that period, socially and culturally and even financially, the expectations of youngsters of the the whole country went 'backward'.

Reasons; They had to stop participating for lectures in certain or some of the days, though the lectures were going on. Due to these Struggles and Troubles the Authorities had to either cancel or postpone ' the examinations' (Ordinary Level and Advanced Level, other Exams; within University system, External Examinations held outside to Internal University System), compulsory. for example i sat for my Advanced Level Exam in '89 and i had to spend couple of years at home 'doing nothing' apart from informal educational engagements before entering the University. And within that if you face any other 'lectures stoppages' due to what ever student or Lecturers related matters, 'again you have to pause or mute your Formal Academic achievements, and in such conditions you are not given any alternatives or choices.  Parents had to keep looking or earning for money for their kids' education. and when finally they are graduated what happens afterwards ,they had to wander here and there seeking for a 'job'. If the fiance they found is not willing to marry his / her Campus Partner / girl friend or the boy friend then it becomes another issue not only for the affected parties but also for the parents. And in some of the families ' when it comes to marriages' , Dowry plays enormously big role or that becomes a very decisive factor. Now, what? The Parents had to think of ways to find a dowry for their unmarried, unemployed daughters specifically sometimes borrowing money from money lenders, mortgaging their properties, jewelries etc. So for any youth and the parents that belong to such categories sometimes its a burden. and for the Society such things become a problem.

How?

Due to late marriages; over aged women cannot bear any children or they face problems both physically, mentally or emotionally. By the time they settle in their private lives ' lets say adopting a child, the parents become ' older' or physically unstable before their children achieve what they want in life. For example, Better Education.  They cannot financially aid the Educational desires of their children. Specially when they are not use to a system of working and studying' at the same time. so due to all sort of reasons mentioned and not mentioned , adultery population increase and they are economically or socially known as 'inactive in providing labor' or labeled as dependents ( though they get pensions or any other financial support from what so ever authorities / party). Some experts say that 'physically inactive or groups that doesn't contribute to any economic gaining' is a burden to any society.   Often states / governments  have to look after them, providing charity, welfare. so it a vast subject to discuss or analyze.

Man is an inevitable product of this society we live. and everything that happens within the circle or the wheel of political , social, economical, cultural  framework 'highly affects him. you cannot say that because you are not a political man you face no issues as such because you are a man of this inevitable political system and finally we are tiny people of this global political, social, economic, cultural highly complex world. What ever happen in that context affects you and I.

But, there are avoidable or reducible issues only if 'individuals acts and behave accurately within their carrier or personal agendas, plans.

If an academic foolishly postponing what ever duty; tiny or big, they are expected to handle, achieve accomplish is holding or let pausing every other work of the chain, in the chain of aims and objectives, tarnishing or damaging the 'visions and missions' of the institution they are attached to. Yes, it is highly essential that you target or trying to achieve your personal carrier goals but if you forget the missions of the team you are attached with you are knowingly or unknowingly withholding the improvement of the institution or of the field .

There is a Saying ' Waves and time stop for no man' , so what are we need to do then?

How to solve or find solutions for such matters, lets discuss later until then wish you all good health!
