  2. Why till 24?
    If you include lives and experience of those people who are research scholars (particularly university students lives) then it could have been till 26 or 27 or 28 . The rationale behind my comment is that at present universities are becoming the center point of social and political churning and raising of consciousness. To include them would be another way to reach some other sections of students and non-students community as well.
    Thank You
