Features

As we see ourselves

As our parents see us

How tidy we are

Quiet tidy, as we perceive ourselves

We are just not up to the mark! We need to take hygiene classes! And we do not maintain our room with neatness and tidiness.

The types of clothes we wear

Fashionable, latest in trend, what makes us look catchy and flashy

We make ourselves appear fools by following every latest fad. We do not have the true sense of style, which is sober and elegant.

How courteous we are

Oh very much! We know how to behave ourselves and we respect all the much we should. To say precisely, we are courteous enough.

We do not know how to act and behave in front of our elders. We are argumentative and aggressive. We should learn what is mannerism and etiquette.

How much we study

Oh well, ya may be not too much according to what elders say. But we do try the much we can, as per our ability.

We do try but not up to the mark. We need to work more hard and only then we will know what hard work is. Study more and play less to make something out of ourselves.

How independently are we allowed to express our opinions

We are not at all allowed to act independently; elders, especially parents, always tell us what to do and what not to do, as if we are kids. We do possess some radical notions, but then we are young blood!

We do not ask for it, we just take it, and for granted, of course! We do not know what to say when and where. We are blunt and out spoken.

Q4 :  

Ravi has a problem, so he asks his friends for advice. Read the conversation below and underline the expressions that are used for giving advice. (This could be done as role-play)

Ravi : My neighbours play very loud music, which disturbs me when I'm studying.

Mohan: Why don't you try persuading them to turn down the volume?

Shiela: If that doesn't work you could think of changing your study time.

Rahim: Why should Ravi have to do that? He really ought to report such antisocial behaviour to the police.

Shiela: Before taking drastic action like that, I would advise you to sort it out amicably with your neighbours.

Rahim: If I were you, I would play my music even louder!

Mohan: That won't solve his problem. Ravi, I think you should ask your father to take it up with your neighours.

Q6 :  

You are on the editorial board for the column 'Your Problems' in The Teenager magazine. You have received these two letters asking for your advice. (They appear to have come from the same family.)

Dear Helpful Avanti

My fifteen year old son is crazy about film music. He seems to be wasting all his pocket money on these meaningless CDs. He cannot even study without this noise. Though he is good at studies, I remain disturbed about this new obsession. There are all kinds of strange-looking posters on the walls of his study and he always wears those gaudy T-shirts and faded patched jeans. Also, he is very fond of Junk-food. I fear he is breaking all links with our culture.

What shall I do?

A bewildered father

junk-food = eatables like burgers, chaat papri, etc!

Dear Helpful Avanti

I love film music and I have bought a lot of CDs from my pocket-money allowance. But whenever I switch on my CD-player, my father frowns and orders me to switch off the 'jarring noise'. He calls it 'cheap' and 'uncivilised' stuff. It is not that I do not like classical music, but when I am with my friends, we listen to film music.

I like Indian clothes and food too. But I also like to wear western clothes sometimes and to eat western food occasionally. I do not like to disobey my parents, but I do not want to give up my music etc.

What shall I do?

A Hurt Son

In pairs, decide what advice to give to
