Recently Times of India conducted a survey to understand “what works – or doesn’t – for the current crop of urban kids in India.” Here are some interesting observations:
Leisure : 94 per cent kids in urban India spend their leisure watching TV.
And in between the marathon TV sessions, if they were to feel thirsty, 55 per cent kids honestly said they would yell out to their parents to get them a glass of water. At least there is a 30 per cent who does it on their own.
Studies: 82 per cent take tuition.
Health matters: 61 per cent children go out to play.
66 per cent feel they are fit.
64 per cent enjoy ghar ka khana or mom’s cooking.
Friends: 72 per cent kids in major cities have a boy/girlfriend.
