Sixteen year old Rahul Awasthi, a resident of urban Mumbai, suddenly became the talk of the town following his unnatural behaviour and has been kept under full time observation where he is being studied by renowned psychiatrists. The ‘problem’ with Rahul being that he is yet to show symptoms of ”Teenage Rebellion”, which is considered a natural process of growing up.
Rahul’s parents are clearly stressed out and are getting desperate. ”When Rahul turned 13, we were ready for the worst. When he turned 14, we expected him to rebel any moment. But he didn’t. Then he turned 15 and we started getting worried,” said his parents in an interview to The UnReal Times.
Research into Rahul’s life from ages 13-16 show that he has never claimed that his parents were ruining his life, nor asked them ”What the **** do you know?” and had never sneered at them for not being tech-savvy. He has never ignored his parents when he was being scolded and always reached home on time and never stayed out late. He considers Manmohan Singh to be his idol and has the Indian Prime Minister’s pin-up poster in his room.
A classmate of his, another teen, remarked, ”When his parents could clearly afford a Samsung Galaxy or even an iPhone, Rahul was content with his Nokia 1100. I realized that this guy was plain crazy.” The tipping point came when his parents discovered that Rahul did not frequent Facebook and preferred to socialize the old-fashioned way. “I have a Facebook account but log in not more than once a week for updates. It’s unhealthy to spend too much time in front of a computer,” he told his worried parents.
Rahul has never been distracted by girls, nor seeks attention. His mother then conducted the ultimate test of holding his hand in public and Rahul did not object to it. It was then that she decided to act before it was too late. His decency has become too much for current society to handle. The whole community has come together in wishing Rahul a speedy recovery and are still waiting for the moment when he starts slamming doors.
