It’s D for Dare you #AToZChallenge
Being parents is a hard thing. They bring little ones in the world and then many feel they own their progeny. But is it really so?
Dare you marry the girl next door. She doesn’t belong to our caste.
How can you study arts? No one is our family is a graduate in arts. Dare you quit engineering.
If your wife finds it hard to adjust in this house, ask her to go back to her parents. Dare you listen and act on whatever she says.
I am sure you have heard such dares. The truth is whose life is it anyway? Would you sacrifice your choices for your parents even if they are unfair or would you stay put and let them make your choices. Is respect the name of obedience or is it about thoughts?
They are no one-word answers and many women and men are trapped in this dilemma. There are emotional blackmails, things about society, people and then the love and duty for parents. While I don’t have an answer or solution here, my question is how far would you go when it comes to being a parent or a child.
I am participating in the A To Z Challenge for the third time this year and I am penning Stories from everyday life.
