Amazing second episode of Gumrah where they made sure that this time to highlight infamous case but of shocking emotion!The part where teens were talking, there was one girl said ''I guess that all of us at a point of time did something out of peer pressure''It was for me an earmark! All of us go through the teen phases. Many of us blamed that they did something out of peer pressure. Like Karan said ''FRIENDS are GOD'' ''FRIENDS are RIGHT'' or someone of same age with her is. It is natural phase,is not it, I was also like this - like the initial reaction of Harsh in the show - short tempered and annoyed on what parents are talking to us - it is such a crucial age - either we get ourselves sorted or we get ourselves screwed and regenerate later.This show again showed that the teens came from good modern family and yet they failed. A moment that brought them to deep decadence.. Some of them grow out of it..Some of the commit suicide thinking that there is a better world waiting for them. A philosophical and spiritual way of thinking are that it is all about the karma. Bad Karma!
However we can not always blame karma! Teenage is the most crucial phase of development for all of us. Like Karan said ''a phase between childhood and adulthood'' - it is the biggest challenge to the parents and the kids. It is natural for us to get attracted and believed those who are in the same phase like us. It is the same amazing age to be carefree, careless, free spirited and definitely decrease in innocence.
Peer pressure seems something natural! There is two types of peer pressure:
1 - Positive influence
2 - Negative influence
I remember when I was teen, a group of friends and I went to talk to some rehabitation kids and they proved to believe our words more than the counsellor who were adults. I was myself caught in peer pressure in a good way. I had a friend who said to me ''do everything but do not ruin the reputation of your family'' I grew with that thought not understanding what it really means. My group of friends were the cool girls too in school and some did learn from their personal relationship experience and some were of conservative values. It is when I came out of the phase!
However negative influence is definitely like the devil illusion, one get drawn to it easier than one actually thought. For that, Gumrah message was really good when it said talked to someone you are comfortable and elder than you. They will definitely tell you consequence of few actions and not judge you.
In short, the girl was right, I guess all of us definitely were caught up at some point of time in peer pressure.
And as we say ''we can not choose our family, but we can choose our friends who are our chosen family''
Make sure that you know who you really want to include in it!
