What You Sow, So Shall You Reap #WoWe

“Hello son, would you come over today?”
“I’ll see dad, have an important meeting today.”
“I understand buddy.”

“Happy Birthday, baby! Have made your favorite cake.”
“Mom, my friends have planned a party tonight. I’ll drop by tomorrow.”

“Why are you lying, Nishant?”, enquired Sanjeeda.


Happy birthday, honey! Here’s the latest tablet for you.”
“Hey baby, sorry couldn’t be there this weekend. Here’s a new credit card. Shop till you drop buddy.”
“Hey baby, an important meeting has come up. Be there soon, promise.”

“Never short of excuses. Work never ended. Promises never kept. PTAs, school annual functions, birthdays or even when I was sick. My parents were never there for me, with me. In fact, I hardly have any memories with them to cherish.”, shrugs Nishant.

“They never had time for me then. Then why do they seek my time today?”

“But they are your parents, Nishant.”

“No Sanjeeda. They were busy in their careers when their only son yearned for their love and attention, craved for a hug when he fell, longed for a smile when he was scared at night. You have to give to get. Not the other way around.

Word Limit: 200


It pains me when I see toddlers barely 3 years of age playing/watching cartoons/rhymes on tablet or phone. While their parents are either busy with work or on their phone or even simply having leisure time. If these kids. when they grow up, do not have time for their parents I won’t blame them. Please give your children time TODAY!

    1. You’re right, Mayuri. In fact, this holds good in every relationship. One cannot buy time and love with the worldly materialistic things.

  1. Had a lump in throat when Nishant revealed his heart. There must be thousands of Nsihant who do not feel the connect with their parents who substituted their quality time with fancy gifts and money. Love begets love is the basic tenet that many parents have forgotten over the race of life.

    1. I hear you, Anagha. And my heart goes out for such kids. I mean if you can’t give enough to your kids better not have kids at all. Imagine your kid being closer to their nanny than their parents. I pity such parents. And do not blame the kids if they want to live on their own terms later when they grow up.
