Do you wonder if your parents behave abnormal?, Don’t worry, You are not alone.
Responsibility or Abnormality:
They fell loose and threatened when it comes to their kid’s future. Of-course, This is a big responsibility, Isn’t it? But this responsibility, twisted by the future’s uncertainty, catalyzed by social fraternity, in due course, transformed into a state of absolute frustration. This is the moment, the problem begins. This frustration ends up in setting a few pretty hard targets for their kids – “Ranks and Marks”. Indian Parents strongly believe, these targets would seal and secure the kid’s future. Sadly, these targets are revised quite frequently than Indian fuel prices which dismay their kid like Ganguly facing the Brutal Akhtar.
Indian Kids scream in pressure, looking for escape, even a top end rice cooker would have given up. A friend of mine had the same issue. He was doing average with his studies, which was not enough for his father. Combined studies, Focus on easy to score areas., Nothing worked out. Though he had some exceptional artistic skills, For his Dad, Engineering or Doctor are the only Professions worth taking up.
A typical Indian Father:
We felt pity and tried to help him. Told him about Bill Gates and his success against the fact that he was a High School drop out. Just asked him to talk to his Dad about such exceptional beings who were neither Engineers nor Doctors.
He came next day with jaws drooped and enacted what happened.
Never Give Up :
I was really concerned to hear that. What..? My god, Does that really matters ..? Well, I thought, we had to sort this out even better. We got a few good Local examples from Internet. Sort of regained our confidence and the sense of making his Dad clueless was exhilarating.
Clueless Indian Kids :
Indeed, We were clueless – hearing him in disbelief. The last line was really shocking. Well, We reconsidered further attempts as it seemed a potential concern to our friendship. Indeed. It was a great lesson and we kind of understood one ultimate Truth. There are a few things in this world, only God can sort out, No wonder, If Indian Parents Top that list.
