The modern era has completely changed, what was and what will be, of the lifestyle of the present generation. We have now descended into the age of science and technology where everything we do in our daily routine, be it at home or office, is completely interdependent on science and technology. The life of a student in these circumstances has become extremely competitive.
The mood around a student now a days is only dull and gloomy. This phenomenon that has been brought about could be due to many reasons. For example, a goal that has been forced upon on a student is very difficult to achieve mainly due to the lack of zeal, or a student that finds himself unable to achieve his goals because of the lack of an answer to the question that keeps popping up in his mind from time to time, “How?”.
For such people, life seems to be in black and white every day. But always, there are ways to counter everything, as a famous quote suggests, “Nothing is Impossible”.
To benefit the students of the present generation in any way possible, to add a flick of color to their colorless lives, to help them reach their goals, to establish a reason to go on in their hearts, experienced, inexperienced, young people, older people, students like ourselves and many more are coming together across the world creating various mediums and platforms, to help themselves and others around them, especially the present generation, in their own capacities.
The most important of these mediums are magazines. India has an array of magazines to choose from that help quite beneficially to the students.
