When asked about their future plans, both personally and for The Flipside, Mehta and Kapur are ambitious yet realistic.
"Ideally, we want to publish one or two more issues before we graduate, and then we want the next batch of seniors coming in to take charge of it. Honestly, more than anything, this has been a learning experience for me in a variety of ways. It teaches you a lot of valuable skills that any 16 or 17-year-old would be lucky to have," Kapur says.
"I really want to widen the area of distribution," adds Mehta. "We have a lot of organisations on the last page of the magazine and we talk about how you can get involved with them. They're not always located in Bombay, so I was hoping to spread the magazine to more parts of India so that we could tackle more organisations and have more people get involved with situations that they care about."
But, The Flipside's next venture is perhaps the most exciting of them all. Both Mehta and Kapur are evidently proud as they discuss a new opportunity in their midst, working with the United States Embassy located in Mumbai. They've already made plans to collaborate on new projects and cover seminars on gender equality issues. By connecting with a platform this well established, Mehta's dream of widening The Flipside's reach may happen in the very near future, with the potential to branch out nationwide.
For now, however, Mehta and Kapur remain final-year high school students with aspirations that would astound even the most seasoned magazine editors. I ask them for a final piece of advice for young people growing up in Mumbai who may feel unsure about what feminism truly connotes.
Kapur says he believes in the importance of free speech and challenging social norms, and so, encourages other young people to speak their minds about the issues that concern them, even when this may rub people the wrong way.
"The problem is that in a place like India, even among educated circles, you have a lot of people who carry negative concepts and stigmas towards this kind of stuff. Even if it's your teacher, I'd say go for it - shout at them. Don't be afraid of seeming like an idiot."
Mehta agrees wholeheartedly. "You shouldn't be afraid to state your own opinions, but more than that, you should be forming your own stance. People shouldn't be swayed to believe something that they don't just because that's what other people are saying. You shouldn't have to change your opinions to meld with society's."
