Open the Developer Tools of your favorite browser:
Chrome: You can open Chrome DevTools by opening the Chrome Menu (the vertical ellipsis) in the upper-right-hand corner of the browser window and select More Tools > Developer Tools. Alternatively, you can right click your mouse > inspect > console. You can also use the shortcut Option + ⌘ + J (on macOS), or Shift + CTRL + J (on Windows/Linux).
FireFox: You can open the Firefox DevTools via the menu by selecting Tools > Web Developer > Web Console. Alternatively, you can right click your mouse > inspect element > console. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + I or F12 on Windows and Linux, or Cmd + Opt + I on macOS.
At the bottom of the open console, there will be a command line where you can type the following:
Hit Enter and the jQuery version will output.

HI @srinii86 You can verify if events are running/working by using Google Chrome's Developer Tools and Filter tags in the Network tab. For more information, you can visit this page: https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/network.
To verify event tracking in Google Analytics. You can start by viewing this video below.
Let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

Thanks for your prompt response with your valuable inputs.
if possible, could you please share any screenshot with the implementation process to track custom events in Google Universal Analytics through Tealium tool.
In Google Analytics & Tealium implmementation screenshots?
As, i'm new to Tealium configuration on implementing GUA. Previously i have worked on SC.

I've done a lot of implementations with both Tealium and Adobe DTM with Adobe Analytics. There's several pros and cons to each, so I'll try to point out each as best as I can while being unbiased.
Much more intuitive interface.
Clear separation between tags, extensions/customizations, and data elements.
Integrated data layer.
Clear use of event tracking methods and data tied to each individual event.
Fully asynchronous by default.
Hundreds of pre-built tags available.
Excellent support team and resources.
Much more user friendly for tag implementation.
More robust versioning and permissions.
Versioning a little less intuitive.
Costs extra money.
Integrated with Adobe Analytics more closely. This makes variable mappings a little more logical to work with, in Adobe terms, from start to finish.
Free if you already have Adobe Analytics.
Slightly easier versioning system up front.
Event tracking is built in and much easier to use than jQuery.
Very limited integrated tags. It is literally only integrated with Google Anaytics and other Adobe products.
Requires synchronous implementation in both the head and footer of each page.
No clear separation between data elements, tags, and "extensions".
No native data layer integration.
Limited support and sometimes hard-to-find resources.
Back to your original question about implementing Adobe Analytics -- every client I've seen chooses Tealium hands down unless money is a large factor. The reasons usually come to management of the tag (which Tealium excels in) and intuitiveness of accessing the data. Tealium's philosophy is built around a strong vendor-neutral data layer, so you are looking at real, readable variables (e.g. customer_id) instead of something impossible to decipher on its own (e.g. eVar45). Tealium allows these to be very user-friendly and easy to map, whereas you have to keep going back and forth for DTM unless you remember to specifically name each individual data element. Both tools will get the job done in a similar manner for basic setup as well, but Tealium's extensions are much more intuitive than implementing customizations within DTM (sometimes very confusing or difficult).
The largest question I always keep in mind is "what is my end goal for the tool?" If my sole purpose for a tag manager is to implement Adobe Analytics, then DTM is going to be better suited because it is free and already very integrated. However, if I'm going to implement any other tags aside from Adobe Analytics and possibly have multiple users using the system of different skill levels, then Tealium is hands down the preferred tool.
