#357 From the pages of my diary

From pages of my diary

It has been seven years that I’ve come closer to this inanimate thing called Diary which I regard as a prized possession. There’s a very thought provoking piece of article that I found in one of the pages of FB dedicated to IAS aspirants and thought of translating it in English to as to make it accessible to a wide range of readers. I hope that all of you should get immense motivation out of it. The real credit always lies with the writer of this original post which was written in Hindi for obvious reason. A big round of applause to the original writer [ I’m unaware about the writer of the original piece. I will update about him/her once I get an idea]

When you don’t feel like studying then just try to recall the face of your parents who keep announcing in the locality that my child will become a collector one day.
Your biggest wish, your real happiness, life, world are your parents; they are your first love. How can you ever think of cheating them? Remember, the one who’s loyal to his first love is the one who deserves his second love.

 Friends! Whoever has helped you to dream, put their hands over your head in every adverse situation, who has helped you to walk and those eyes which never cease to dream that one day my child will do wonders, what I couldn’t do, he’ll/she’ll do . They have happily forgotten all reasons of their sadness just by glancing at your face.

When they have trusted in your abilities then tell me why aren’t you trying to step forward to make your dreams come true?

Oh! my friend, when you don’t feel like studying , just recall the face of your father who keeps on repeating that my child will never degrade the glory of my family. Recall your mother who has made countless sacrifices but has never let you know about it because she didn’t want you to be sad. She kept sacrificing so that you should get what you want the why are you quiet about working hard?

Why do you forget that for all our happiness, they’ve sacrificed all happiness of theirs so that you suffer no deprivation.

Enough said! The right time has come for dedication, hard work and sacrifice, willingness to do something and to fulfil those dreams to bring smile on the lips of your parents.

Then pick up your books and put your heart and soul into it. Read history, geography, politics and everything you want. Don’t worry about the electricity as you’re the source of electricity.

Spread your identity on the cover page of every magazine; work hard the way that your result will create the loudest noise and thousands of journalists with cameras will die to get a glimpse of yours. Needless to say many media persons will be anxious to converse with you about the journey of your success. Everywhere there’ll be discussion on you and every parent will give the example of you to their kids.

Friends! We can never repay the debt that we owe to our parents but we can bring smile in their faces.

Then pledge today to do immense hard work whose result will create a noise and your parents will say, “I wouldn’t have got a better child than you.”
Then pledge for the thing that “your parent’s dignity will be greater than your wish.”

Jai Hind!
