Thank You for your awesome response. Due to your support, I am able to continue posting.Please keep walking with me till the end.
Before I start painting my idea on today’s topic, I would like to clarify that the thoughts are not completely my experience.They are stories and experience I perceive from this world. Please do put your views on this topic in the comment section.
Today in this blog, I would like to discuss the role of parents and teachers in our lives.Well, it’s not a new topic but still, I would like to release my thoughts on this.
Parents are the reason why we are here today. They are the physical God for me in this world. If I got to choose something between my parents and the thing, I would always go with them. I am nothing without them. Having said this, do we owe them anything? Do we need to act as per their expectation? They are the first faces whom we see when we step our foot in this world. They are the people who gave us food to grow, they are the superman and wonder woman who protected us until we became independent. Based on their upbringing, we become the person what we are today. Their every behavior, words, action affect our lives.
At the age of around 3-4, our parents decide that we are meant to get knowledge about this world through schooling. So, they decide the best school where quality education is received based on the track record of the school. They send their children with the hope that their children will become a good person if they study in school or for some they are seeing their own dreams through their child.
So, after a lot of efforts, we are dropped to school. Well, there we meet our second God our teachers. After our parents and family, they are the people who’re gonna guide us till we become someone who could decide on what is right or wrong. We have surrendered ourselves in front of them. Everything they say is like words from God. Even a small action from them affect our soul. They hold our hands and take us to places we have never been. They present us the outside.
In India, our teachers are the Hitler and we are their followers. We maintain a wall of distance between them. I am not sure why but during my school days I was so scared of them. Was it a natural process of getting scared or they made it like that. They used to come into a classroom and start teaching. They hardly smile. They also used to bring a long stick also as if we are animals. If someone misbehaves they will this long sword to trash us. That pain was the biggest fear for me. Sadly, I still remember those big beating I used to get and I feel always remember it. I wanna make sure our future generation doesn’t get that kind of beating. Having said this, we all know our teacher does this to make us a better human.
When I was in school, I was told what to do and how to do it. I was never told why I am doing a certain task. It was just for some score in progress report. And this report card goes to our first God. Based on this report card, our Gods decide how we are as a person. They will start dividing us as a bad student and good student. The good student gets all the praise, comforts and the bad student gets all the beating. Looking at this scenario, I see a corporate world running in schools. It looks like we are producing Robot which have no emotions, but just the forceful education which we are not gonna remember after we leave school. I don’t remember the classes I attended but the good and bad memories I had with my friends and teachers remain with me forever.
Once we finish school, we are supposed to go to college. Here we are taken a bit seriously. We can decide on what we can study. Based on our Indian society, if we are good in maths, we should study engineering and if we are good in Biology we should study medicine. What a foolish stupid thinking. Not even an animal would decide something based on this. In school, we study many subjects.What is their importance? Are they just a subject that we need to study to score good marks? Given a chance to go back to my past, I would have studied arts rather than science. From the place I come, 99.99% of the people study science. But not sure why there is no major difference in scientific space in my hometown. If everyone has studied science but why there are not many novel price winners from India.
Well, dear friends and juniors, it’s up to you how you want to grow up in life. Please do not do anything based on the decision of your parents or teacher. Learn from them but don’t become slaves. You are born as a human to do complete a certain task. Question on each step of your life. Question your parents, teachers, relatives, friends and most importantly ‘yourself’. The answer is within you. Always go with your instinct.They are the signals from the universe.
You are the devil, you are the God, you are the universe.It’s up to you what you want to become before you leave this world.We have got only one life. Please come out from your comfort zone and find out the real you.
Well, at the end of the day I love my parents and teachers. I am so thankful to this universe for giving me, my two Gods.
