In the November 13 issue of TechNews, our editor-in-chief wrote an article titled “Let’s stop and assume for a moment” where he mentions that TechNews has a whole team of writers, photographers, and editors responsible for this paper’s success “but that is a point to be covered in another article.” I thought I would take it upon myself to write that article.

I’m a mediocre flute player; I’ve been playing for quite a while, but I’ve never prioritized practicing and due to this have never had the kind of skill that dedicated musicians earn. Making music was something I enjoyed but didn’t move my life around. I stopped taking band after my freshman year of high school in order to make room for the STEM classes I wanted to take, something I now regret.

India is a country of many interesting titles, but one of the aspects it boasts the most is that it a country of the youth, as 65% of the population is below the age of 35. Yet, it has been noticed that the voice of the youth is the most suppressed. Often hearing things such as, "You are not old enough to know better." or, " You are just saying that because you are going through a rebellious phase.", is something that has become the norm, as though the opinions of the younger generation are a topic of mockery.

Another semester and another midterm exam, I genuinely wonder why do these exams exist. Do they train me to solve the problems of the world or do these train me to take exams in the organization I am going to work in? If the whole purpose of these exams is to improve your knowledge then why don't we take exams every day?

Being a grown up brings a lot of freedom. Everything depends on our choices and we are solely responsible for how we make our decisions between our given options. Though we are free to choose, with a great amount of freedom comes great responsibility as we need to decide what is good for us and what’s not.

Fortunate are the ones who are with their families and loved ones at this moment. My experience here has been a roller coaster with so many twists like in a thriller movie. I have been away from my home before during my undergraduate degree back in India. But in India, I could visit my home whenever I wanted, relish the tasty mom-cooked food every day. Since August 2019, I have been in Chicago and haven't visited my family so far, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and other circumstances.
