Look at her marksheet, just 50% in Mathematics”. Her father retorted.
“And, not to forget her Science marks, 55%. She is such a disappointment.” Her mother fumed too.
“But, Dad, Didn’t you notice my English marks? I have had got 92%, the highest in all the sections”. The 9th grade girl said fearfully yet, there was hope in her voice.
“Nobody sees your literature marks. It is Mathematics and Science that make careers”. Her father broke the hope she was clinging to.
“Stop wasting your time scribbling your good for nothing thoughts and pay attention on numericals and equations”. Even her mother failed to understand her.
And, a dream died young that day. She was engineered to opt something she could never really understand or love.
The irony is, she was allowed to be a bad engineer or a bad doctor but, not a great writer!
Really, Lucky are they whose parents say :- ‘you can do what you want, we’ll always be there for you beta’ ! 🙂
