The topic was relevant to the age group, wherein issues of peer pressure, mood swings, feeling of depression, rampant use of social media, indulgence towards ‘junk’ food were raised. It also brought up the issue of refusing to give in to the lure of bad habits.
The talk also reiterated that parents, teachers and elders think of the child’s welfare when they do not succumb to the child’s desires at all times.
The students appreciated the interactive sessions and were very receptive to the speaker.
