WHAT ARE THE COMMON UPS AND DOWNS THAT EVERY TEENAGER HAVE TO FACE ARE THE QUESTIONS WHICH ARE ANSWERED HERE BY A TEENAGER WHO IS ONE OF US, BUT IS AT THE END OF HER TEEN LIFE. PRERNA M. WAS FOUND TO BE CONTENTED WITH HER TEEN LIFE AND I FOUND ABOUT HER EXPERIANCES SITTING BESIDE HER IN HER LIVING ROOM, SIPPING COFFEE……..

HARSHA MISHRA: HELLO PRERNA, SO TODAY YOU ARE GOING TO INFORM ALLTHE TEEN YOUTHS ABOUT YOUR TEEN LIFE.

PRERNA MUKHERJI: HELLO HARSHA, OF COURSE I’LL TELL ALL THOSE THINGS THAT ARE WORTH TELLING AND I HOPE THE READERS WILL ENJOY READING THAT.

HM: SO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING THESE DAYS?

PM: I AM WAITING FOR MY TWELTH GRADE RESULTS AS WELL AS PREPARING FOR COMPETITIONS RELATED TO ADMISSION IN COLLEGES.

HM: HOW ARE YOU FEELING? YOUR SCHOOL LIFE IS ENDED.

PM” REALLY BAD, THOSE WERE THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS OF MY LIFE AS THERE ONLY I TURNED FROM A CHILD TO A YOUTH.

HM: AND YOU ARE AT THE END OF YOUR TEEN LIFE.

PM: YES, I AM 18 YEARS OLD AND NEXT YEAR IN FEBRUARY I’LL CROSS THE LINE.

HM: HOW YOU VIEW YOUR LIFE FROM THE STARTING OF 13 YEARS TILL NOW, WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO STEP IN THE NEXT LEVEL?

PM: MY TEENAGE GAVE ME A LOT AND ALSO TOOK FROM ME MY CHILD HOOD, WHICH IS A GREAT LOSS FOR EVERY ONE BUT AS LIFE WILL ALWAYS GO ON, THIS PERIOD WILL ALSO BE ALWAYS AWAITING IN EVERY ONES LIFE. BUT I AM SATISFIED AND CONTENTED WITH MY TEEN LIFE. THE ONLY THING WHICH HURT ME IS THAT IT LEFT A GENERATION GAP BETWEEN ME AND MY PARENTS.

HM: WHICH KIND OF GAP YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT?

PM: THE GAP HERE MEANS, OUR CHOICE CHANGED, OUR WAY OF DEALING WITH LIFE CHANGED AND SO OUR OPINIONS CHANGED WHICH SOMETIMES LED TO CONFLICTS.

HM: WHAT WERE THE CHANGES YOU FELT IN YOUR ATTITUDE WITH THE CHANGE IN YOUR AGE?

PM: WITH THE CHANGE IN AGE A LOT CHANGES. YOUR WAY TO LOOK FORWARD ANY PARTICULAR PROBLEM CHANGES, BEFORE YOU USED TO SEE THE WORLD THROUGH YOUR PARENT’S EYES BUT NOW YOU TRY TO SEE IT THROUGH YOUR OWN.

HM: DID YOU EXPERIANCED CHANGES IN OTHERS BAHAVIOUR ALSO?

PM: YES, I FELT BUT ACCORDING TO ME THAT HAPPENED DUE TO THE CHANGE IN MY OWN ATTITUDE RATHER THAN OTHERS.

HM: DID TEENAGE CAUSED A CHANGE IN YOUR FRIEND CIRCLE AND APPEARANCE AS WELL?

PM: YES, ACTUALLY IT DID. MY DRESSING SENSE AS WELL AS STYLE CHANGED. I BECAME MORE CONCIOUS ABOUT MY CLOTHING. BEFORE I USED TO HAVE UNLIMITED NUMBER OF FRIENDS, NO MATTER HOW THEY WERE, BUT NOW I HAVE LIMITED NUMBER OF GOOD FRIENDS.

HM: WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE ACTOR?

PM: SHAHID KAPOOR AND HRITHIK ROSHAN. ACTUALLY I AM FLAT ON THEM.

HM: SO, MY ATTACHED QUESTION IS THAT WHETHER YOUR CHOICE OF ACTORS ALSO CHANGED?

PM: YES, BEFORE I USED TO SEE ONLY SMARTNESS BUT NOW I SEE SMARTNESS AS WELL AS THEIR ACTING AND CHOICE OF MOVIES.

HM: ENTERING TEENAGE CHANGED YOUR DRESSING STYLE, FRIENDS, EVEN ACTOR. WHY IS IT SO?

PM: I THINK A SENSE OF MATURITY MAKES US DO THAT.

HM: BEING A GIRL, YOU MIGHT HAVE FACED LOVE LETTERS AND PROPOSALS. AM I RIGHT?

PM: YOU ARE RIGHT. I THINK THIS DAY COME IN THE LIFE OF EVERY TEEN GIRL.

HM: HOW YOU RESPONDED TO THEM?

PM: I JUST IGNORED THEM AS I CAN’T ACCEPT ALL AND AM STILL LOOKING FOR THE ONE I REQUIRE.

HM: HOW YOU WANT “HIM” TO LOOK LIKE?

PM: HE MUST BE GOOD LOOKING, SMART, CARING, UNDERSTANDING AND A BIT NAUGHTY.

HM: OK, WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR PARENTS REACTION WILL BE IF YOU SAY “YES” TO ANY ONE AND THEY COME TO KNOW ABOUT IT?

PM: IN INDIA THE COMMUNITY IS REALLY RESERVED ABOUT THESE KINDS OF MATTERS AND BELIEVES IN ARRANGED MARRIAGES BUT I THINK THAT MY PARENTS WILL BE ANGRY FOR A FEW DAYS BUT SEEING THAT THE BOY IS FINE FOR ME THEY WILL GIVE PREFERANCE TO MY HAPPY LIFE.

HM: MANY TIME PEOPLE SAY THAT ENTERING TEEN LIFE RESULTS IN A DRASTIC CHANGE IN A CHILD’S LIFE. WHAT IS YOUR OPPINION?

PM: IT’S NOT A DRASTIC BUT A GRADUAL, NECESSARY CHANGE. IT IS ONLY THE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL GROWTH FROM A CHILD TO A MATURE, AWARED YOUTH.

HM: ACCORDING TO YOU THESE CONFLICTS ARE COMMON IN EVERY TEENAGERS LIFE?

PM: THIS DEPENDS A LOT ON PARENTS AS WELL AS ON TEENS. IF PARENTS UNDERSTAND THE CHANGE IN TODAYS ATMOSPHERE THEN THE CONFLICTS SEIZES OR IF TEENS TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE WAYS THEIR PARENTS LIVE LIFE THEN ALSO THE PROBLEMS CAN BE SOLVED. BUT, THE FIRST ONE IS BETTER THAN THE SECOND ONE AS WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE CHANGES.

HM: WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE YOUR TEEN READERS KEEPING IN VIEW YOUR TEEN LIFE?

PM: I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT JUST STAY CONNECTED TO YOUR CULTURE AND LIMITS AND BECOME AS GOOD A TEEN AS YOU CAN BE. ENJOY.

HM: THANK YOU PRERNA FOR GIVING US YOUR VALUABLE TIME.

PM: WELCOME
