They Say… I Reply…


“they say”…
This is most common words you will hear in your day to day life, “mom they are saying that this is not looking good so I will not wear..”, “hey that person was saying that it is very difficult to do, so its better I will not try to do that…” and so on….

So isn’t it better to reply to those persons who represent “they”…

They say, do not feed your child with mother’s milk initially, instead feed him/her honey… (some indian communities think that colustrum, the initial mother’s milk, is bad for the baby, which is wrong)
I reply, it is the best quality of milk or anything the baby can have at that time, why to deprive them from it..

They say, do not let your child to be handled by so many persons as they get infections..
I reply, if I will do this than how the child will get their blessings and love, which is most essential thing in life for them..

They say, do not let your child to play on streets with low society children..
I say, if I do this, than how they will learn to socialise, to communicate, and how they come to know the problems the children are facing because of poverty..

They say, (as the child grows) do not let the child to talk to other religion child or stop them to go their house (hindu to muslim or vice versa)…
I say, than how they will understand the values of other religions in this vast country known as India..

They say, send the child to “that” school because it is predominantly Hindu/Christian/Muslim…
I say, well school’s quality is determined by the quality of education not by the community of children..

They say, why you sending your child to drawing classes or dancing classes or sports coaching, there is no future, instead send him/her to study maths or science, he will become a doctor or engineer and earn a lot of money..
I say, the criteria of money will not be the criteria for choosing the career, rather their interests will be the prime importance for choosing any perticular field..

They say, why you are going against the ideology of society..
I reply, I do not go against any person, I just follow what seems to be right to me…

These are some of my thoughts, what are your’s that seems to be against the society or even against the elders of your family.. do share it with me…

Anshul 🙂

  1. Thoughtful points. And, so true!

    However, even I believe that you should not let your child to be handled by every other person until the baby is three months old as they are more prone to infections (no need to tell you this :)).

  2. So true ! time to move on from people’s expectations & fixed notions & live life & experience it your way at the same time not losing respect for ppl around you 🙂
