This post is dedicated to a friend who feels that she could have been a different person if only her parents allowed her to choose for herself...
All of us at some point have let go of our preferences and let our parents choose for us. We compromise our preferences so that they can be happy.
Let’s consider a seed. When a seed is sown, it is buried under soil. Soil protects the seed, provides it the vital nutrients, everything the seed needs, with the only expectation that one day the seed will break the barrier of soil to stand high. The seed will grow to become a tree spreading its branches across the forest.
The tree has to grow tall and strong, and hold on to the soil. Soil is its foundation- the values a person carries through his life. Soil has to support the tree but what use is the soil that crushes the seed under its own weight. The seed has to grow and make its foundations proud.
Uff enough of horticulture. Getting back to human beings. We have to live our lives. No one wants to suppress you, they are just protective. It’s your first test of survival. You have to break free. And the best part is you fight the people with the best intentions for you; People who will let you make mistakes. They will be there to help you whenever you need them. Even a tree completely cutoff will grow again, because the soil will support it.
People go explore your way, take all the help things from your parents. They will be proud of you if you break free and explore your life. You have to stand tall in life so that your parents admire you and struggles to bring you up are paid off.
People say they could have been a different self if only their parents had let them make their own choice. I believe people who think so should stop fooling around, including you my friend. You have insulted all the education and all the efforts they put in to bring you up. Firstly it was your choice to let others choose for you- you are weak, your parents want you to be strong. Secondly, if you are still not satisfied, I have a question for you- how do you expect a seed to stand tall in high winds and bear the extremities of climate if it is crushed under the weight of the soil? The so called compromises you make are the most cowardly way of facing a challenge. If you let others decide things for you, you are disrespecting the education, guidance, values that your parents have given you.
Oops I think I am sounding too selfish… What about the thanks giving? What about their expectations? Hmmm… Tell me something do you ask your mommy what she wants for her budday. Dumbo apply your brains. They don’t want anything from us, infact do you think, you can give something to the people who gave you life, we are too small. Only thing we can do is a surprise (not shock them ok..) them a little. Make them happy in our own way.
Ok now mujhe bhook lagi hai. Mummy.. khaana…..
I love you mommy and daddy… And the last thing in the world I want is my dear mommy daddy to read these inspiring and revolutionary ideas of mine.
Finally I have something to say.. Thanks mom. Thanks dad. And thanks to that dumb friend who inspired me to write this crap… And thanks to all the people who had nothing better than to read this post...
PFB my intro in blog.
Waise toh "Priyanshu", naam hi kaafi hai, still read more to know me better.
Sorry about the email syndrome, I am a software Engineer.. Emailing is in my blood. Ignore that.
I know you are aware; this is recession period that’s why I have come to this site to post some peice of my mind. Its better that instead of sitting and wondering about my future, I do something constructive. You know, its better to publish your worries & relax when you see others who get more worried than you are. Wicked Sunny...
Recruiters if you are reading, visit me on BestEmployeeOnEarth.com.
I am afraid the site is down for maintenance. Those guys,my cohorts, just found 1059 new skills in me. And you know what, they want to post all of them on the site!!! Please excuse them, they will take some time.
Ok about me, as a very professional Indian guy:
I am a software engineer just worried about my near future (I know I will make it big in the far future). Everyday some companies go bust; more companies lay off employees; many more companies cancel the appraisals. Software industry is tensed. Last week Satyam was introuble and every Satyocian (as in Infocian for Infy) is worried. And why only Satyocian, everyone associated to IT sector is worried. But you know I am really inspired by Mr. Ramalinga Raju. After all it’s not easy to do such a big fraud. But seriously who can grow without any frauds. I am not talking red tape in
Mr. RR could actually take Satyam to those heights just because of those frauds. And I cannot swallow the fact that he alone gulped all those several thousand crore of funds. Any way we all know RR will be out soon, he must be having many well wishers in politics. After all he is a wise man and he must have made right arrangements before going to jail. He will get off jail in some months and live happily ever after. After all that’s why people say you get paid back in the same life!
Gud luk Mr. RR. Great job- for taking Satyam to those heights; not for getting caught!!! Chor woh jo pakda jaaye...
Anyway this blog is about my intro; not about someone whose photo is published on front page of the news paper daily. I seriously feel jealous. After all he is not giving back those thousand crores.
Ok now about me as a person. Well I don’t have to tell you much- watch any Hindi movie and listen to my intro- The aam aadmi waala dialog- I stand in Q, sit at home without Bijli Paani, etc. Think of all that crap..
We are all in the same boat just that I am posting the thoughts & you are reading them.
Thats it for today. I know you want more, but I got to sleep now. Anyway before I close, these Blogger guys will ask you to post comments about my Article. Post some good comments about this blog.
The Priyanshu Jain
Ah.. that email syndrome.
Cheers Guys & Gals!!!
