Until I was blessed with my first child, I always thought that parenting is very rosy. I barely had an idea that a tiny, chubby, cuddly little bundle could score over you and leave you clueless, confused and perplexed all night.

What I realized, is that parenting is the only subject where you are directly put into the practical lab sessions, without conducting any theory sessions 🙂 Before you realize, you have a bundle, who grows into a mischievous lad, and a troubled teenager, who leaves you at the mercy of google, doctors and advice from family and friends. No manual, no guide. Only trial and error, talks, temper tantrums, cajoling, cuddling, googling – choose your pick, to suit your need 🙂

As we raise kids, we enable them to become independent, self reliant and able youths for the future generations. Don’t you think it’s a big bounty we pay ourselves, for all the struggle, for capturing the goodness in the kids, and making them good citizens who can shoulder the responsibility of themselves and the nation.

    That is why the scriptures say “Matru Devo bhava, Pitru Devo Bhava. Acharya Devo Bhava” The saying i suppose applies to both the parents and the little ones.

    Another saying goes to say that if the parents groom one child to become a good citizen of the earth, then they would have paid back all the “dues” they have enjoyed from the bounty of mother earth during their life time.

  2. Me and my daughter were analyzing our relationship yesterday and we both were laughing remembring many events. Parents are born with birth of child not before that. As child keeps growing parent grows too. You presented it in a very interesting way.
