Ask parents of today what they want their children to become when they grow up. Some may respond with the exact name of a profession. From the classic doctor or engineer to the so- called more ‘open-minded’ ones choosing music artiste or sports player! Whatever the profession these parents choose, for most the basic premise is for their children to pursue a livelihood with passion and one that provides for financial sustenance. Along with building capabilities for economic success, these parents would also like their children to develop life skills that nurture in them a sense of self and abilities to live harmoniously with and in one’s milieu. Then there may be those who will delve into an all-encompassing aspiration for a well-rounded individual! One who has unique ideas, aesthetic appreciation, with humane thoughts and the conviction to follow through on those in one’s deeds. For these parents, financial security of their grown – up children is a by-product and a guarantee of a balanced education. And a few more may believe that education means all of these and more!
