When I say teen mom, Kerala, and modern outlook. It is never going to blend well together. I am surrounded by a place where teen girls talking about sex was considered a sin. So I can't even imagine the hell that a teen mom would have to go through. Now that I am in college I can see some changes around me and this progress is indeed surprising. I have always had a different outlook from the rest and sometimes people say nice things about it and sometimes I would be the outcast ... Ergo a freak. But it never bothered me. As long as it's for the right thing I'll be fine.
I'm talking about this because I thought of this girl who got pregnant at seventeen in my school. At that time it created a lot of talks and teachers painted a tragic story for her. They also talked about sex. That is don't have sex... Obviously. I didn't know her at all. I haven't even noticed her because I was a shy kid and I never talked to anyone. But I can imagine how things might have badly turned out for her.
Her tale could have turned heroic. But I am sure the rest of the society would have turned her as an example for a cautionary tale. The tragedy that happens when you have sex before marriage or as a teenager. But the funny thing is these people are the ones that turned it into a tragedy. I wish people would get out of their cocoons and broaden the scope to evolve. Times are changing constantly. Some time ago women didn't have the right to vote and look how women are running this world now. Everyone would just shun the teen mom and treat them as if they don't belong to this place. It's quite heartbreaking. Yesterday I saw a youtube vlog of a teen mom who was pursuing a law degree. Imagine if people here would have supported her. Maybe she could have gone to college and get a job. She could have been a single mom and she could have rewritten the tragic tale into a heroic one. But unfortunately, there's always this judgemental person who is always critical about everything.
If you are reading this. All I wanted to tell you is please don't let yourself stay in that cocoon. Always learn about how times are changing and educate yourself.
Recently Madras High Court judge Justice N. Anand Venkatesh decided to fix an appointment with a psychologist to get a better knowledge of same-sex relationships. To give a proper judgment.
(I don't know what happened to the teen mom as I did not know her and I had no idea who she was or how she looked. I am using this platform with my anonymity to just spread the word with the hope of having a better tomorrow.)
