Where is my childhood?

Where is my childhood is an inner scream of many children...

We are really forgetting the difference between focusing on getting our kids to be Educated & being Cultured, a good human being, balanced, happy, fulfilled, loving etc... Today's kids are ridiculously pressured with most of the things in the name of education that are seemingly or really irrelevant...

A 2nd standard kid, has Hindi & other regional languages, 21 Text Books, more than basic computers that is being thrusted on them, home work of about 15 pages daily + art or craft homework...

They don't have time with their parents friends or for self in any way... by the time they come from school directly or after few activity classes or tuitions they are ready to eat & sleep...

They are pressured with fancy gifts like hair dryers, revolving chairs, expensive watches, etc. that they receive as birthday return gifts (this is real just know it from a friend mom few weeks back).
More than half the kids would be outwardly happy, to receive it but would be unconsciously dying inside with inferiority complex, if their parents can't afford such hoity toity items & the ones whose parents can, would have inflated superiority complex that they should outdo the gift when their turn comes...

Which expensive & more pressuring school to put a kid, is almost a necessity that is more competing & a matter of status symbol many a times....

We really need to do something to prepare them for the World competition but with love & nurturing of a balanced life.. To in some way reach out to the Education Ministry for reducing the pressure & have a more Holistic approach towards the growth of a child & really not get carried away with the false glimmer that most institutions put out...

If our collective voices, signature campaigns can bring justice to so many other seeming issues of life, can we not do this for our very own young, sensitive, delicate, generation whose soul, aspires so many things beyond competitive education...

You don't need to go through poverty to feel for the poor; same way it's not necessary that one has to be a parent to see & realise these things. One's heart many a times pains when one sees all the above things with one's young niece, friends kids & neighbors kids etc...

This is not said just to crib about the matter. One truly is seeking from the heart, & asking can we seriously do something that can help our little precious Angels?
Suggestions & real practical ways & ideas of actually doing something are most welcome. Please do help in creating a wave if you are in a capacity to do that.. Shall surely join the efforts... Love you All..

Love, Light & Blessings to All  ♡
