Survival skills in this present 21<sup>st</sup> century are one of the basic needs for living an independent life. Hence I strongly believe that cooking, giving first aid, basic self defence are necessary to be taught to the teenagers irrespective of their caste, creed, gender, religion, race and others.
Looking at the present scenario most of the countries are facing issues with crime, health and living. To be precised when we speak about crime, there has been increase in cases where people are stabbed for money, lonely streets are not safe for girls etc therefore self defence can be a boon. Coming to health it is become common that people are losing consciousness just while walking of streets, accidents ranging from slightest to the life threatening ones. Hence learning basic first aid or basic life support training can be helpful for all the teenagers to support the society and its people.
On the other hand there is no such rule where particular group of people or individuals should be learning the survival skills. It is open to humans of all caste, creed, religion, race and others to learn and develop the qualities of independency. Infact we have to consider these as a basic part of living no matter what background the individual comes from.
To conclude on a positive note if schools start taking up basic survival classes during their school life, it would help children grow stronger and independent. However for today I reckon that atleast the teenager s are encouraged to learn such skills to lead a better life.
