Bavra Mausam is our weekly program on adolescent emotional health issues produced with support from CREA. It was born as a spin-off from Chahat Chowk, our weekly sexual and reproductive health show. Parents were keen on us producing a separate series for their children. However, during formative research with youngsters, it emerged that they would much rather talk about all the emotional churn they are going through, from falling in love, to self esteem, to peer pressure to managing conversations with parents.
Separate seasons of Bavra Mausam (Season of whimsy) have dealt with menstruation, gender-based violence and sexual harassment, communication with parents, the emotional churn during adolescence and ways in which parents and youngsters can build healthy communication with each other.
