The A Mag Editorial, 2007 - '08.




I Loved writing this one. The Magazine Editorial. It's a special one! The second time I could write an editorial, I was on Cloud # 9. My joy seemed no bounds. Yes!! Not only articles i could write Editorials too.... Whopppeee!! Yaayyy Woww!!

No picture describes a youth better than that of a university student. It is in our college days that we learn to strike a balance between studies and (ahemm..) realities of life. Yes Readers, we have dedicated this year’s Annual Magazine to the ‘The Spirit of Freedom – The Youth’s Perspective‘mainly implying on the Attitude, Thoughts and Deeds of Today’s Youth.

“Dil hai chota sa.. Choti si asha, Masti bhare man ke, Bholi si aasha..
Chaand Taaron ko Choone ki Aasha, Aasmanon mein udne ki Aasha..
Dil hai chota sa.. Choti si Aashaa… “
These words sing in a true picture of the tunes that sums up the mind of a teenager blossoming her way to being a responsible youth. With Freedom comes Responsibility!

Hopes, Dreams, Aspirations… all of these and more create a sense of Responsibility, Passion and Dedication in the minds of the euphoric youth adding another beat to the heart.
It may not be as rosy as it seems for today’s youth has to excel at academics, behave responsibly towards our society & our nation, and compete with the peers.

“Boond boond se saagar banta hai”, this well known Hindi adage may sound clich├ęd but is true to its core. “We” as college students may not be contributing a great deal towards our society and nation, but it is the little things we do that can make a great deal. Our thoughts and attitude towards various concerning issues is what decides the solution of the issues. In this magazine we have not only included the thoughts and attitude of today’s youth towards various issues but also included a few of those Inspirational Youth Icons who channelize the passion and are idols to today’s Youth.

The Cheerfulness of the heart and the Innocence of the mind, the harsh truth of practicality and the bitterness of reality; In spite of these “we” as responsible youth must vouch for ourselves, to act sensibly in every situation, for it is our responsibility to pave a smooth way for our living as well as reaching our nation to Her highest Peak.

To know what experience has to say and to be aware of the happenings in our society, with immense pleasure, we – the Editors of The Annual Magazine have brought back ‘The Alumni Section’ and have introduced a new section ‘A Section of Social Relevance’.

With this, we would like to extend our best wishes and gratitude to all those who have put in their efforts and time to make this magazine a meaningful piece!

You've picked just the right phrases, words and snippets of songs to express your thoughts. I particularly liked the line where you spoke about 'adding another beat to the heart'.....very nicely written Sneha. Keep writing!!!
