I kinda feel sorry for that kid. And yes, he's a child, despite being 22. He's not going to have a very successful life since his parents have spoiled him so much.

Right? The only appropriate response from the parents is to buy him a one-month bus pass and tell him hes on his own after that. But I sense they will not do this.

Why should they? He most likely has appendages on the ends of his legs. These are commonly known as "feet" and they're used for walking to a job where he can flip some burgers and buy his own bus pass.

Edited to add: likely to be vegan burgers given the location, but still.

you'd be surprised to see a lot of fish, chicken and lamb on the menus in Haryana and Punjab.
thinking India is a land of vegans and vegetarians is a massive misconception.

brat's name is Akash (translates to sky)
he should have aimed higher instead of submerging in lower waters

The dad did not know that it was such a mistake.

Live and learn, dad. Live and learn.

Generally speaking, broad brush et al:
Indian parents refuse to kick out bratty kids, instead tolerating tantrums etc. in the fear of "what would the relatives/friends/community/society think" and fear of "losing the kid".
American parents would just straight up kick the kids out and enroll them in University of Life.
based on anecdata

Agreed. Most of my friends from India are not at all vegan, and some aren't even vegetarian. But they're consistently grossed out or culturally offended by the idea of eating beef, which is kind of a well known ingredient in burger patties. One of them explained to me about Durga, and why beef is no-go culturally and even legally in some places. Obviously in a big enough city there's enough diversity for there to be at least a few people who can and will eat non-mainstream products, but there's something to be said for not ticking off large parts of the customer base.

If I tried to sell beef burgers in Haryana or Punjab, I'd expect the same kind of reaction from the public as if I tried to sell dog burgers in New York or Los Angeles. All ground meat looks pretty much the same, so it would be easy for rumors to start. Overall, a vegan product sounds to me like a better business bet, especially for the brat in the article. Enough people are already annoyed by his car tantrum.
