We are the most 'youthful' country in the world with talks about the Generation Y getting into politics and all. But as a society are we mature enough to trust the young fellas 'making mistakes' and learning? May be even initiating some of this stuff proactively by the parents ;-)
Or in the name of 'culture' (no doubt there are valid reasons too!) we will continue deferring to commit mistakes until we learn it all !
May be the situation is not so grim and the cultural renaissance is already knocking on the doors.
