India is a country of diversity. People living in different states have different lifestyles. People of different age groups have different hobbies and routines for spending their evening leisure time. But the activities of young Indians during the evenings are rather uniform across the country. The following are the activities you can expect to see any young Indian perform in the evening time.
Even after the mental pressure of studying hard and performing better, Indian school students (especially from the suburban and rural areas) make enough time in the evening to play together in the nearby playgrounds. The most popular games of the evening are cricket, football, run and catch, and hide n seek. On the other hand, Indian students from urban areas like to play computer games in nearby cyber cafes where they are all connected through LAN. Another popular evening activity is riding cycle together for miles.
The reason why urban area students are drawn into computer games and less so towards physical games is due to the lack of availability of grounds to play. On Saturdays and Sundays(working holidays), their parents take them to children parks and other nearby grounds to play the above-mentioned games in the group.
On weekday evenings when the college is on, Indian college students hang out with their friends in shopping malls and hang out places like cafes and have fun conversations. This is basically a chill out session after an entire day of grueling college classes.
On weekend evenings, they arrange friendly parties for enjoyment at any friend’s place. Sometimes, they play video games together or watch a movie together in multiplexes. Those who are interested in physical games like cricket and football from childhood time, they travel miles to reach the grounds where only college students and young adults play. Some studious students invest their free time in the evening researching and designing new innovative projects or studying in public libraries.
