Life is Lie
These are Purely my thoughts based on observations from our neighbour.
Don’t Know how far can each of us stretch our memory but i can surely recall when a five year old me was asked “Beta bade hokar kya banoge” and i gleefully answered “Cricketer banunga, chauke-Chhakke markar jeetaunga”. What after that ? Was i taken seriously? Was i even motivated to become cricketer once ? Our society is the reflection of pseudo-prestige built by our elders trampling over their kids‘s dreams. As we grow we are expected to be super intelligent with the IQ slightly more than Einstein. Suddenly our ‘Mausaji’ pops up on the scene and boasts about his son’s gloryfying academic life making it sure that after his departure the reciever will be a 10-12 years old children . Obviously no parents would expect their children to become ‘Autowala’ or ‘Panipuriwale Bhaiya’ .So they jump into a utopian world and want their children to top in the class , clear olympiads, excel in sports and of course how can children not be socially and morally perfect? Children are gullible fools. You can mould and shape them into whichever character you want to with your unmatched sagacity . So the bluffing starts with this famous Indian Saying:- “Beta 10th bahot important hai. Yha achche number le aoge to Life mein kafi aage Badh Paoge”. The naive teens are petrified so much that they start fearing about Boards as soon as they reach in eighth standard. When the 15-16 Years old teens clear board exams with robust marks , as a matter of formality they are asked with what subjects they would like to proceed? Teens born and brought up in middle class families very early picks up what their parents want and they never dissapoint them. For me, the biggest genocide ever happened is the genocide of dreams of middle class teens. When the super intelligent teens reach the 11th standard , suddenly they are told the marks that they scored in 10th was all farce and now they have to score well in 12th board exam. Only that will shape their future. Also they should score well in entrance exams so that they qualify for a decent college. It is during this period most of the confused teens don‘t understand whether their life is an unsolved puzzle or Bermuda Triangle. Most of the teens go to depression during this time. As if these were not enough that those teens approaching adulthoods and entering colleges are told the measurement of the success of their life will be determined by how decent job they find. By this time ,the new adult comer understands what life is. Constituting various branches and built one over another; Life is a lie.
