parents of yesterday and today
Watching a hindi serial and for a change it is showing harsh reality of life—parents go to any extent to give love and fulfill all wishes of children and they want their children to love them but the same parents forget that they also have their parents who expect the same from them. Why this contradiction? People want their children to love, respect them but the same parents become a stranger to their own parents
Reminds me of a old story which my father used to tell me
Old father feeling cold so the son along with his wife asks his small son (grandson) to give a old tattered blanket to the grandfather
The small child tears the blanket into half and gives half to grandfather and tells his father that the other half is for him when he will become old
Why are we so selfish?
Parents want the best for their children; they feel proud at the smallest achievement of their children, they share sleepless nights with their children during exams or during the sickness of children
The same parents how can they just close their eyes, hearts and mind to the fact that even their own parents had been through the same drill when the second generation parents were young.
Do they think that they are the only parents in this earth who are concerned about their children? ?
