- You are spoiled!
This is the most common myth, which people think about anyone who stays away from home. People think that you a are free bird who can party like hell anywhere, are exposed to drugs, or have multiple relationships etc. But this is not so. It’s all about making choices. Living in a hostel or PG has a different fun element and since out station students miss out on the homeliness, they need their own ways of making the experience of living special.

At start, people eat a lot junk food not having any fear of their parents scolding them. But soon people get tired of outside food.

When we spend time with our family we are carefree spend carelessly, stay messy. However, it’s just the opposite. You actually learn to live on your own.
