BEZAWADA: Demonized young generations are trying to improve society

(04/03/19 4:00am)

“Juvenoia:” An unofficial term used to describe the fear and resentment in which older generations regard the newer. It is no new information that millennials and Gen Zs are possibly among the most hated generations to exist, with their violent video games, liberalism, millennial pinks, memes, mental illnesses, killing of entire industries, need for higher salaries, lack of foreseeable housing options, avocados, hipster fashion and disruption of the nuclear family.



BEZAWADA: Opportunity paves path for continued hope, discovery

(02/27/19 5:00am)

"My battery is low, and it is getting dark." After the 15-year-old rover Opportunity drew its final breath on the lonely Red Planet, the news of its last message took the internet by storm. Photo edits, GIF sets and posters flooded social media in heart-wrenching artistic renderings of the haunting words. The end of humanity’s favorite robot, that was originally intended to travel less than half a mile for 90 days, but against all odds lasted approximately 15 years and 28 miles, could not have been on a more fitting occasion: The day before Valentine’s Day on Perseverance Valley.



BEZAWADA: We should not allow unfavorable odds to discourage us to act

(01/30/19 5:00am)

"Many things come to mind when people hear the word “lottery” — high stakes, high rewards, equal opportunity and no chance. “No chance” means the rare occasion that anybody actually hits the jackpot, even though the mathematical probability checks out. It is an assumption that pervades beyond the scope of the lottery business, either because everyone does it or nobody wins it. It is a societal self-fulfilling prophecy of pluralistic ignorance.



BEZAWADA: Use moderation in online shopping

(11/07/18 1:50am)

If you sit toward the back of any lecture hall, you are privy to the private lives of basically everyone in front of you. Facebook, iMessenger, Twitter, BuzzFeed and other less-than-appropriate webpages sit innocently beside the current lecture material, giving the semblance of productivity and focus. A distracting albeit amusing portal into the hypocritical nature of overwhelmed, exhausted college students trying to enjoy their lives.





BEZAWADA: Students can finish semester strong by following a few steps

(04/10/18 11:34pm)

Here, I shall list the five most mind-blowing steps on how to effectively handle the semester as it draws to a close. Actually, it is more like nearing the conclusion of a bad book with a defeated acceptance that many loose ends and plot holes remain. But who cares? The weather is supposed to be phenomenal this weekend and you should spend your well-deserved fun in the long-awaited heat.


BEZAWADA: Students should take time away from worrying about future

(03/27/18 11:23pm)

Hanging out with family is great, especially for us college students. After spending weeks at the residence hall avoiding them and their drag-you-off-the-bed-by-the-legs, “back-in-my-day” justification for everything, it is always nice to return home to the familiar dysfunctional monotony of your siblings’ whining, lectures on the dangers of weight gain and the sudden, suspiciously coincidental influx of chores.


BEZAWADA: History shows individuals have ability to spark huge societal progress

(03/07/18 2:09am)

Before I left for Rutgers this past Sunday, I was watching the 90th Academy Awards with my parents at home. Although I only managed to catch Jimmy Kimmel’s satiric introduction and the announcement for Best Male Supporting Actor, the circumstances surrounding my experience were more or less serendipitous, to say the least.


BEZAWADA: Students should go with gut on life's path

(02/21/18 12:41am)

If you read The Daily Targum’s opinion pieces last semester, you might recall reading an article with this byline: "Sruti Bezawada is a Rutgers Business School freshman hoping to transfer into the School of Arts and Sciences and double major in computer science and communications. Her column, 'Traipse the Fine Line,' runs every alternate Thursday." Two things have changed since then: First, my column runs every alternate Wednesday now.
