Adolescence...

It is a matter of months. I will no longer fit in the scientific definition of 'adolescence'...Standing at this vantage point in time, I realize that God has been graceful enough in bestowing upon me a lot of knowledge which I would need to lead a healthier future life...
Adolescence. The very word, brings in a shrivel with it. It rings in excitement and restlessness. The sound of constant influxes of shoals of butterflies fluttering carefree in the stomachs echoes in. Adolescence is an age wherein most part of our development takes place. It is a very sensitive age too.

It is not as easy as it seems to be, to champion an alien thought and to see it being accepted and imbibed into people's lives.
Though there seems to be a trend towards westernization, India has not lost its essence; nor can it lose it, however stark the psychological pressure be. Today's youngsters have taken it for granted that India has already been westernized; or say, 'modernized'. Whereas, the truth lies in the fact that, we have a gross misc…
