Have we failed in bringing up.our ‘modern’ kids?

A very distressed neighbour shared that he had driven home after a long day at work. As he entered, he saw his wife in bed with fever. She had laid out his dinner on a tray.

Everything was there just as he wanted it. The dal, vegetables, salad, green chutney, papad and pickles… ”How caring,” he thought,
“Even when she is unwell, she finds the strength to do everything for me.”

As he sat down to eat, he realised that something was missing.

He looked up at his grown up daughter, who was watching TV and said,

Beta (child), can you get me my medicine and a glass of water, please?

She rolled up her eyeballs to show her displeasure at being disturbed, but did the favour nevertheless.

A minute later he realised that salt was missing in the dal. He said,

Sorry Beta, can you please get me some salt?

She said, "Ufff!” and got the salt but her stomping shoes made it clear that she did not appreciate the disruption.

A few minutes later he said, Beta …

She banged the TV remote on the table and said,

What is it now Dad? How many times will you make me get up? I too am tired; I had a long day at work!

The man said, I am so sorry, Beta....... Silence prevailed.

The man got up and placed the dishes in the kitchen sink

and quietly wiped the tear escaping his eye.

My heart wept… I often wonder;

Why is it that the youngsters of the so called modern world behave like this? Have we given them too much freedom to express? Have we failed to discipline and give them the right values?

Is it right to treat children as friends?

Think of it this way, they have lots of friends. But they have only one set of parents. If they don’t do
'parenting,’ who will?

Today the `self-esteem’ of even a new born or an infant is being talked about; but what

about the self-esteem of the parents? Are they supposed to just fan the egos of their children, while the children don’t care two hoots about theirs?

Often parents say,

Aajkal ke bachhe sunte kahaan hain (Where will you find obedient children in these times)?


The other day, we were at a dinner party. All the seats were occupied except for one bean bag. One of our fifty-something friends told his teenaged daughter to move to the bean bag, so that he could sit on the high back chair she occupied.

She said, Why can’t you sit on the bean bag?

I was zapped; we all knew that the father had a back ailment, and even otherwise…Well!

Later as everyone was taking leave of the host, the same guy realised that he had left his car keys inside.

He asked his daughter to go and get them.

Why can’t you go and get them yourself? I am not your maid!

I looked away in disgust and disbelief. The poor guy had no option but to make light of the situation saying,

Ya, Ya, but Daddy is your eternal servant my princess!

He went inside to fetch the car keys. This is what our social behaviour has become! Why?

If we need to teach children about self-respect, self-esteem and self-confidence, we also need to tell them that howsoever big and rich and famous they may be,

their parents shall always be their parents… children can never be their equals, let alone be their bosses!

Remember to Pay -

#RENT#Respect, #Empathy, #Niceness, and #Time!


Your kids can have any #number of #friends, but have only #ONE set of #parents.

So don’t be #afraid to set #rules and make the #children #obey them.

#பிராமணனை #காப்பாற்றும் #ஆயுதம் #தர்ப்பை

வஜ்ரோ யதா சுரேந்த்ரஸ்ய சூலம் ஹஸ்த ஹரஸ்ய ச
சக்ராயுதம் யதா விஷ்ணோ: ஏவம் விப்ரகரே குச:


அதர்வண வேதம் தர்ப்பையின் பெருமையை பலவாறு கூறுகிறது.

இந்திரன் கையில் உள்ள வஜ்ராயுதம், சிவன் கையில் உள்ள சூலாயுதம்,

விஷ்ணு கையில் உள்ள சக்ராயுதம் ஆகியனவற்றுக்கு எவ்வளவு சக்தி உண்டோ அவ்வளவு சக்தி பிராமணன் கையில் உள்ள தர்ப்பைப் புல்லுக்கு உண்டு.

பாதாளத்தில் மூழ்கிக் கிடந்த பூமியை இந்த ஆதி ஸ்வேத வராஹ மூர்த்தி மேலே எடுத்து அதைத் தன் சக்தியால் ஜலத்தின் மீது நிலை நிற்கச் செய்தபோது,

தன் சரீரத்தை உதறும் காலத்தில் அந்தச் சரீரத்திலுள்ள ரோமங்கள் பச்சை நிறமுடைய தர்ப்பங்களாகவும் நாணல்களாகவும் விளைந்தன.

அந்த தர்ப்பங்களாலும் நாணல் களாலும் யஜ்ஞங்களுக்கு விரோதி களான ராக்ஷஸர்களை அழித்து ரிஷிகள் யஜ்ஞங்களால் பகவானை ஆராதித்தார்கள். ஆகவே தான் அவைகள் மிகவும் புனிதமாக

Do you know when #HanumanChalisa was #written?

Everyone worships Sri Hanuman Ji and recites Hanuman Chalisa, but very few know the circumstances under which it originated.

This dates back to 1600 AD, during the reign of Akbar.

On His way to Mathura, Sri Tulsidas Ji stopped in Agra for the night.

News spread that Sri Tulsidas Ji, a great MAHAAN, had come to Agra.

When the people heard this, they immediately flocked to see Him.

When Akbar learnt of this, he asked Birbal who this Sri Tulsidas.

Then Birbal, who was himself a great devotee of Lord Rama, said, that Sri Tulsidas Ji had translated Valmiki Ramayana, which was now known as "Ramacharit Manas" and that he too had been to see him.

Akbar also expressed his desire to see him.

Last 2 days popcorn and youtube jokers are saying #AmitShah is weakest HM and should go

But let me tell you about this brilliant chanakya mind which i am sure 99% don't know as these things are not spoken about

You all know Modi was against 370 even before he entered active politics

You must have read my post since 2014 when i use to say that 370 will go just after 2019 election not before against what Harvard Swami misleads

Let's not go before 2014. Let's start from 2014

The problem was 370 but when you define the problem you figure out that it has few problem creator stakeholders. Srinagar gang funded by ISI, ISI, its franchise in India Congress, the seculars, 57 Muslim nation at OIC and the US

So in 2014 MJ Akbar came in as MoS EAM.
