Would you rather

Would I rather go for something more permanent? Yes, I will. Sometimes I feel we humans do everything because we want to, not because we need to and that’s what makes it different from that imagination of ours. We eat fruit before it gets developed, for the sweetness that we thought it would contain and then it doesn’t taste like what we thought it would. Complicated isn’t it. How life throws us mangoes and then expect that we won’t eat it. Who wouldn’t eat mangoes after all? We all love mangoes.

Anyways what I want to say is we should rather go for things that are necessary for us in our life rather than the things that we wish to have. Romeo wished Juliet, you know what happened right? Cinderella was looking for freedom, she never thought about a prince who would pick her shoes and run after her and then would see everybody’s feet in the entire kingdom so that he could marry her. Not even in her weirdest and most fascinating dream she had imagined that but that did happen.

Become Cinderella even right now you want to be Romeo, don’t ever search for something that won’t last forever. You will last forever. Your self-desire would last forever. People won’t last forever. Search for peace, independence, self-love instead of searching for a lover. So now, would you rather go for something more permanent?

Cool parenting

I wish my parents were cooler than what I think I would be as a parent. The funny thing is I ain’t even married so my kids are imaginary. I a girl who is born and brought up in a society where everybody doesn’t respect their child and want everyone to respect them had a very controversial family. No, the controversy was not about the fights in the family but everything that was so uncool about my family. Do you know I am a middle class? I bet you don’t because I ain’t. I am an upper-middle-class living the life of a middle class and society thinks that I am richer than Modi. MODI JI is our prime minister by the way. I don’t know why I wrote his name but never mind. So talking about my parenting I as a kid always wanted to go out for partying and staying in my friend’s house. That’s it. I never wanted to do drugs nor did I wanted to get a boyfriend or anything that an India parent would mind. But being a girl who was a blessing to my family according to my parents never had permission to party.

What is wrong with partying?

Everything. You can’t party in teenage because you are studying in a co-education. There are boys. So those who aren’t from a country where your boy is a man of the house and could do wrong and somebody else boy is a rapist won’t know that what I am talking about. Jokes apart. That’s was the main reason why I never had gone to a party. Yeah, I have attended parties but they were parties that included aliens who just have controversial backgrounds and knew how to create them. I am talking about my relatives.

Who are relatives?

People who have 4mouths and 6legs which are invisible. Yes, you can’t see them. Now you’ll ask me what do they do with these many mouths. They talk bad about other kids and pass judgements about everybody. Legs to run from work which they are responsible for in relations.

Me as a parent

I want to clear one thing which would be in your mind after reading all the above stuff that how bad my parents and relatives are. They aren’t bad. They are just stuck in a mentality which is of none but our ancestors. Do you know what I want to be? A good ancestor. They one who would be in controversies for doing good and letting everybody do what they think is right. I’ll be like my possessive parents too. I know will let my kids party but not after a certain timing because like my parents I would be a possessive parent.

I’ll be like my parents taught me to be but a better version of them.
