Today is Father’s Day and I have seen everybody posting pictures and messages for their dads on various social media platforms, but I have not posted anything till now, not even at any platform ( I might have but currently I do not have any 😂😂as on break from them except WordPress, as it is different from rest ) ok, ok, I am going off the topic so ya, I am talking about Father’s Day. I am not gonna write any poem or anything for my Dad, here, Today I am here to talk about something else but in regard to father’s day only but before this let me wish my dad and all other father’s out there Happy Father’s Day.
So every year whenever when father’s day or mother’s day comes we shower all our love on our parents, posting pictures, writing long messages, etc on all the social media platforms, whatever it is Fb, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc is full with it. But my matter of concern is not this at all, there are many people out there, who does not mean a bit of it they posted and just everybody is posting, they also do so to gain view, to show how they care, etc. They may have not spoken a word to their parents, wishing them in person, I know, it’s the 21st century but still, many parents still do’not use social media or are not that active so what’s the point on showing love and respect when they cannot see or feel it.
If you are thinking, Era is gone mad why I am talking like this, why am I judging people but I am not judging anybody, I am saying what I have seen and felt? I am not against posting pictures and messages we should all do that, but answer me one question Is one day enough to thank our parents for whatever they have done for us, do we should not respect them each day, yes, they are important and I am saying you, when you actually needed, you will only find your parents by your side because anyone can leave us but parents never. They held your back always. And you also know this.
Ok, answer me, one more question, do our parents wait for any day, oh, today I will do this for my son or daughter as today is daughter’s day or son’s day. They never do that, so why we do this, why don’t we care for them every day, they are doing this for you before you are even born, have they ask you anything in return for this, and even if they ask, how many of you can return that favor, but, you can do a little by showing them little love, care, and most importantly respect.
Yes, there is a generation gap between us, I have seen three generations and analyzed I mean my parents and my grandparents, and our present time and there is a huge difference the viewpoint of among all on few things but that does not mean that they are wrong or we are right or vice versa, they are saying this, from what they have seen and learned, before reacting, stop a bit, analyses and think and talk with them, they will surely understand and also maybe they are right and we are thinking wrong on something, they are obviously more experienced than us. My parents always ask mine and my brother views on many things, sometimes they agree on that, sometimes not, but this is beneficial for both as both can learn new things, don’t you think so.
There are many children who don’t have parents, have lost them, some even don’t have seen them even once, so, if we are privileged to have our parents with us, why are you taking them for granted, why many send their parents to old age homes or why they left them alone, or why do you not respect them, then, again, you will post a picture on social media and say we love and care our parents, do you see, I am not at all, saying not to post but show them this in real life too not only on your virtual life and please stop judging those who don’t post anything, it is not important, not at all important.
I don’t know, what I have written and just these thoughts are going on in my mind, I just pen it down, and I am again saying, I know not saying everybody is like that and not judging anybody but there are still many who does not mean a word but still post, my matter of concern is that. Again, I know, there are many factors associated but still.
In short, what I mean is, not one day is enough for parents, everyday is, what we are today is only because of them, and who think, what they have done is done by everybody, it’s their duty so , please my duty lovers fellow, it is your duty too to take care of them. Think before you speak and do what you expect from others first.
I am sorry if I have hurt anybody. Thank you for reading it.
