Growing Young With Green Mangoes

Growing Young With Green Mangoes

It is my friend’s birthday today. I picked up the phone and wished him. While talking on the phone, we tried to relive our past of climbing trees and eating green mangoes. Staring out of the window, there it is, a bunch of green mangoes, between the delicate white flowers of Jamun tree, and the light yellow spotted flowers of the Tamarind tree on the compound wall of our society. I have looked at them almost every day since the past one month, but have no courage to do anything to get them. We, as kids, have often climbed these trees and thrown stones so as to drop some mangoes and almost always gotten scolded by adults. As an adult, I now continue this tradition of scolding the kids for doing so! As I look out, there are a few kids from the block who have gathered around the tree w

Delhi Youth For a Smoke Free Campus

Recently I got an opportunity to visit some of the colleges in Delhi for my project work. I must say that it was a good exposure for me and it helped me a lot in understanding the youth of the city. I believe that the young generation is the mirror of a city-country leading to the making of a great Nation. The youth of Delhi are enthusiastic, energetic and remain cheerful always. But this is one side of the story. Just like many other young people across India, most of them don’t know what they want from their future. At the same time, Delhites must be thankful to their young adults. During my visits to not less than ten colleges, I could not find more than ten students smoking in their campuses. That is only about one student per college and is much less than what it is in other pa
