Winners Do Not Always Win!!

  • Baby has to take her first steps at 10 months
  • My child has to study in a particular school — I vividly recall a scene of a toddler coming out of a principal’s office being beaten by the mother as the child had not answered anything at the interview.
  • My child will be a doctor, engineer or scientist, for the most intelligent study science.
  • My child will go for IIT coaching from class 9 itself — doesn’t matter if it is a torture chamber that robs the adolescent of his/her adolescence.
  • My child will study and work in the USA, (a few other countries have since been included) earning international salaries, will have a palatial house, with a couple of cars thrown in, and so on.
