Change for Love

When we come across two people of different age- groups, it’s likely of them to differ in opinions. Their parameter of understanding is always under skepticism- whether one would comprehend the opinion of the other or would completely dissent with the matter.

To attain the consent of both parties, it’s vital to have an amicable relationship between the two. It’s indispensable that both parties share their opinions with empathy towards each other.

In our society, still there are many homes where a child is hesitant to share his/her views with the parents. Still, there are many people who are confined to the boundaries of caste, creed, and religion. Often, it is being observed that this bogey has been put up with not for the love of society but for the fear of society. We have been raised with moral of keeping others happy. So, even in our personal matters, we consider the opinion where the society should be happy.

In that case, when a child falls in love with someone who doesn’t belong to the same caste, and parents would always told him/her that he/she should be married to the one holding their patriarchal surname; it’s palpable in apropos of the child to expect the obstinacy.

But, I have seen the parents changing their belief, where they have got agree to embrace something which they were adhesively against toward. At the end of the day, what matters the most for parents is the happiness of their child. If the child is happy, parents have no qualms about what the society believes in.

I have seen & I have learnt: no matter how many times you have dissent with your parents, eventually they want you to live your life happily.

  1. Great thought... its true that at the end parents want our happiness.. they are the most selfless people...

  2. That is true. I am the first one to marry out of caste in my family. I come from simple brahmin family, my grand father was a priest but my parents, including my grandmother had no problems with it. They wanted me to be happy.

    Good luck for the contest, Gayatri!

  3. totally agree with you, Gayatri. people are changing with time and parents, these days, don't have any issues with their children marrying someone from a different caste. all the best for the contest!

    1. Our parents want our happiness. :) It's the only thing that means them.
      Thank you very much, Debajyoti! :)
