    Jossey sir, what you said is hundred percent agreeable. Because, during your time, at that age, your girl friends were taking to kannada movies right? After that, those memories did not allow you to concentrate on your studies....😆😆😆

    It's a unfair comparison between the genders. It's a known, scientifically proven fact that girls mature earlier than boys physically, emotionally, intellectually. Boys do not do so good during teenage, but start doing better in their 20s.
