The Second form of Importance

  1. Getting education in schools like dps always brings the students of higher middle class to the dilemma u have stated here. The important part is not in becoming the father who let his children drive around in a BMW… But in becoming that father who teaches his children to value and to know the signifiance of what they have got… I too have studied in the same school as u have completed your schooling from… I had seen many rich kids wasting away there parents money away lavishly… But i have seen and had many friends from equally affluent families who uttered from their own mouths that they were nothing but any other ordinary men if they were considered without their surnames… Will you be able to be that father??? Think about that…

  2. Dear ‘anon’,
    Being a part of this neo-age cult that seems to have engulfed everyone these days, it’s hard to resist the temptation that lies in remaining anonymous while posting opinions.
    The air of mystery that surrounds the concept of animosity undoubtedly carries it’s own charm, but i would still suggest that you break open that shell and ‘reveal’ yourself.
    Your statement here is not something i haven’t thought about. It would generally seem to be a total waste of time if my kid turns out to be the next rich bully in class. The whole idea of bringing him/her up in air conditioned buildings and cars is probably something that seems very childish to you as a matured person, but at the same time, to somebody like me, it carries an amount of significance which i can safely say, is beyond your (though captivating) idea of the so called “reponsible” upbringing.
    Of course, it’s only natural for a parent to demand modesty in a kid, and i myself would strive to see that in my children. But at the same time, i want to make sure that there’s a fine line between that modesty and the despicable term ‘mediocrity’.
    Mediocrity may always win by numbers, my dear anonymous pal, but it only wins more mediocrity. Think about that.
    Toodles.

  3. Dear Lucifer,
    Well being anonymous truly carries a charm of its own. And hence i would not break open the “shell”, atleast for now (I may give it a thought later). I realised after reading the comment above that responsible upbringing is inconspicuous. Rather its your children’s own ways of approaching towards various situations of their’s lives define them. One may observe that some students despite the same amount of freedom from their parents and also being well-off doesnot lead them to such a careless attitude. Some amount of such maturity might be contributed by their peers but most of it is from their inner self of how they try to face the stark reality of life or run away from it. And yeah maturity cannnot be defined by one’s age. The attainment mental maturity by a person is in itself is mystifying puzzle with its solution perhaps deeply rooted in spiritual realisation of oneself. I apologise for pourig out my irrelevant babble in front of you. But you might be able to find a connection due to a wayward thinker yourself.
    P. S. You might not remeber it but i was deeply inspired into thinking abstractly after you recited a small story of “the world map and picture of child behind it” to an assembly of students in DPS Durg.

    1. Hey anon-
      Nice play of words on the mail id- loved the gentle sarcasm. Yes, i really wont give up on myself. And thanks again for keeping up the hits. And should you choose to reveal yourself, i’m sure you can manage to get hold of my cellphone number. I’ll wait for a call.
      And please remind me about the speech you’re referring to- sadly, i seem to have forgotten. It’s a shame.
      Kindest Regards,

      “Lucifer”
