Messed up hair and a grin

With determination enough to win.

Spinning dreams high and low seeking success

A mountain of imagination.. no less.

By nature, an English geek

And for sure a sporty streak.

Wild, bright & cheery

Sprouting a weird & crazy theory.

A smile blithe & intoxicating

A voice quite unhinging

Touch so warm ever

Oh I wish you were mine forever...

What's with the pressure?

What's actually going on in schools and at homes?? Why are the students being tormented throughout the year? Why is there a swirl of suicidal thoughts in the obfuscated minds?It's all the pressure.. stress.. pressure.. Teachers and parents role in the pressure.

Teachers often threaten students with numerous consequences for failing their subject. Trip to the Princi, phone call to parents, humiliation in front of peers, imposition reaching surprising numbers..

Back home, the 2 warriors are always ready at the threshold to know how you fared in your tests and even more ready to lecture you till THEY get exhausted.

Effect on student? Depression sets in. Moodiness. Guilt. All leading to rash thoughts and attempts.

Parents expect a lot from us nowadays. But why can't they just understand that most of us do do our level best in the various fields. Everyone isn't made the same. Everyone's got the most strongest points and most weakest points, all which differ from others. Parents are at great fault when they compare the children with others. Comparing makes them feel worthless. They grow to hate the kids they have been compared with. They consider themselves a burden. Not fit to be a part of the society and that's when they turn to wrong activities.

Yes we understand that during olden times, the kids never got proper education due to lack of money and other problems. We also understand that now we have better facilities and that we should make proper use of it. But pressurising us?? We do do our very best in everything. Though we suck in calculations.. we do well in languages. The language marks make up for our abysmal math marks.

Why don't parents just try to understand that our career choice is OUR own choice? And that they shouldn't be interfering at all in the subjects and paths we choose?Engineers and Doctors is all what parents can think of making us? Just because of its high earning position in society? What's so wrong in being a photographer or a journalist or even a cartoonist? On being forced to select according to the parents choice.. the child firstly, lacking interest in that field will NEVER do well in it. Secondly, you are stealing his only chance to pursue the career of his choice. Thirdly, his happiness is extinguished.

So the question still remains.. WHY?? Don't they want us to be happy? Earn good and work with dedication? Why are scores so important? You have a wide range of choices you can make. It's your will. It's your life. It's about your happiness. Choose the right path. Don't let dejection form a barrier to your road of success. Everyone's excellent in a certain field. You know you are good in something and you also know you aren't so very good in the other. So don't let the lectures you heard let you down just because you aren't interested in something that someone else is interested in.

Keep the faith. Believe in your strongest points. And pursue for the RIGHT path. It's YOUR choice.
