TEEN YEARS ARE FUN YEARS

“LIVE AS LONG AS YOU MAY, THE FIRST TWENTY YEARS ARE THE LONGEST HALF OF YOUR LIFE”
BEGINNING TO REALIZE THAT LIFE IS NOT SO FUN AS IT SEEMS TO BE, STRUGGLE IS UNIVERSAL PHENOMENON TO BE AT SUMMIT, FRIENDS ARE NOT THE ONE WHO WILL REMAIN THROUGH OUT OUR LIFE, ALL THIS COMES WHEN WE ARE LATE TEENS OR HAVE PASSED OUR TEENS. ALL ARE OPPOSITE, AND WE POSSESS THE QUALITY TO MAKE THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN, RUN THE CLOCK BACKWARD, MAKE 24HRS. AS 48HRS, MAKE THE SUN RUN REVOLVE ROUND THE WORLD, MAKE EVEN THE WINTER DAYS A WARM PARTY TIME, ARE ALL THE FANTASIES WE MAKE IN THE EARLY TEEN YEARS. TEEN IS A STAGE OF LIFE. AND INDEED, EACH STAGE HAS ITS OWN SIGNIFICANCE. UNLESS, WE FLY WITH OUR FALSE WINGS AND FALL ON THE GROUND, WE WILL NOT REALIZE HOW HARD THE GROUND IS AND ACTUALLY THE WINGS ARE FAKE.
TEEN YEARS ARE REALLY THE FUN YEARS AND WHAT WE CALL AS ‘MASTI’, ‘MASTI’AND ‘MASTI’. KNOWING THE NEED OF EVERYTHING BUT, THE VALUE OF NOTHING IS SOMETHING STRANGE. IT STARTS WHEN WE ARE NEITHER A CHILD NOR AN ADULT. NO NEED TO BE SILLY LIKE A CHILD OR SERIOUS LIKE AN ADULT. POSSESSING THE CAREFREE LOOK AND NOT BOTHERING ABOUT ANYONE BUT, INDEED, FRIENDS ARE SUPREME.ENJOYMENT ,IS ALL IN TEENS. PARTING THE ENJOYMENT WITH FRIENDS MAKES IT x100 TIMES. INDEED, WE ARE THE FOOLS,IN THIS 14 AND 16 OR 18. WE HARDLY THINK ABOUT OUR FUTURE AND MAY BE, THAT MAKES IT A GALA TIME. THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE SUCKS, INDEED. BUNKING CLASSES, WATCHING FIRST DAY FIRST SHOW WITH FRIENDS, REALIZING FRIENDS UNHAPPINESS AND ASSURING “MAIN HOO NA”, TEASING FRIENDS, HARASSING NEIGHBORS ALONG WITH FRIENDS, ARE SOME OF THE OCCURRENCE IN TEEN YEARS.
PERHAPS, TEENS ON THE OTHER SIDE FACES LOTS OF PROBLEMS. THE MAJOR PROBLEM (I HAVE OBSERVED) IS ABOUT UNDERSTANDING. IT IS AN AGE WHEN, IF YOU BEHAVE IN A TOO CHILDISH MANNER, YOU WILL BE CRITICIZED- “DON’T BEHAVE LIKE A CHILD!” AND IF YOU BEHAVE LIKE A GROWN UP, YOU WILL BE PRESSED DOWN- “WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOURSELF? YOU ARE NOT EVEN 18 YET! OK!”, THEY ARE OFTEN MISUNDERSTOOD. THEY HAVE SUCH GRAVE PROBLEMS AND MAJOR ISSUES AMONG THEM THAT THEY CAN’T SHARE THEM WITH THE ADULTS TO GET A SOLUTION AND THAT CREATES A MAJOR PROBLEM. THIS IS AN AGE WHERE THE WAY YOU BEHAVE CAN EITHER MAKE YOUR LIFE OR RUIN IT COMPLETELY. INDEED, A DANGEROUS PHASE OF LIFE.
IT HAS BEEN SEEN THAT TEACHERS (MAJORITY OF THEM) ARE ALSO NOT SO COMPETENT TO MOLD THEM AT THIS STAGE AND DEVIATE THEM TO THE RIGHT PATH.
WHAT CAN BE DONE IS, ESPECIALLY SEMINARS, CONFERENCES CAN BE ORGANISED ANNUALLY IN SCHOOLS WHERE THEY WILL BE TAUGHT ABOUT THE REALISTIC NATURE OF LIFE AND THE TEACHERS WILL BE TRAINED HOW TO TAKE CORRECTIVE MEASURES WHEN A STUDENT IS DIVERTED IN A NEGATIVE PATH. INNOVATIVE MEASURES CAN BE IMPLEMENTED AND, EVERY THING CAN’T BE ORDERED BY BOARD RATHER, SCHOOLS SHOULD TAKE THIS INITIATIVE.
