In my recent exploration, I delved into the lives of India's middle-class boys, discovering a myriad of struggles they face daily. They often grapple with intense pressure to excel academically, whilst struggling with limited resources and opportunities. They also confront societal expectations that demand they secure stable jobs to support their families in the future. Amidst this, they often lack access to quality mental health resources, leading to unaddressed psychological stress. Despite these obstacles, their resilience and determination continue to inspire me.
