My little daughter is not ready to work hard
I almost cried listening to my little daughter’s introduction. Here is what happened a few weeks back.
I went to the parent-teacher meeting of my 4-year-old daughter, teacher asked me to introduce myself to all students sitting there. I found it funny. But then I thought, let me inspire all the students there, and motivate them.
I announced to all students sitting at their little desks: I am Rakesh Kalra. I am at a very good position in a very great organization. I earn X amount, and I own 3 cars, 2 houses, Xbox, 85" TV, 2 house helps. I have 50k followers on social media. I go on international vacation twice a year…I am…I own…I spend…and a lot more of I.
Now my teacher asked my daughter to introduce herself. And she said:
I am Insia Kalra. I live with my beautiful family with my mom, dad, grandpa, and grandma, whom I love a lot. I have 3 friends with whom I play every day. I miss my friends and grandparents when I am out on vacation, as I love them a lot. I like to laugh, jump and jump in a muddy puddle. The rainy season is my favorite season. I miss my father every day as he is always working and come home very late. I hate my big house as I get lost in it at times. I don’t want to grow up, as grown-ups are always on phone, and don’t have time to play with me.
I felt so sad, and almost teary listening to my daughter’s introduction. I felt I should start spending some time with her, motivating her in the right direction, else she will never be successful in her life, and always remain so emotional & weak. She needs a reality check and study hard, else she will be a failure. She needs to understand whatever I am doing, being from home, earning money, is all for her, not for myself.
