Why every parent want his child to earn a good salary only without thinking whether,,
his/her child deserves it? and when they are earning, nobody bothers whether they are ethical, honest in their dealings or care about environment, country or society or even their own family.
In today's materialistic environment, we ourselves teach the children to value things over people, but when they start doing it we sit on judgement.
I see many people who are rich but
ill treat their servants,
pay them less than they deserve
dont look after their old parents
their children drive cars without driving licences,
They use electricity with jugaad,
dont pay taxes,
According to me all such people are not succesful people in life, success doesnt mean earning money only...
We provide our children many things which they dont need, but just because their peer group have them, so must they, otherwise they may get a complex...instead we must tell them the difference between needs and wants , necessities and luxuries and appropriate time for indulging in them.But how shall we? When I see adults themselves aspiring only for the things..I feel pity on them. There is so much in life to look forward to and here people are looking only at gazettes.....
I always wanted my children to be good human beings first, they may do or not do lot of charity, but they shouldn't do any wrong thing, shouldn't hurt others for their happiness,shouldn't be unnecessarily rude, caring about others and value people in their lives.I dont care whether they have big bungalows, fancy cars or anything, I would feel sad if they are unethical in their dealings with anyone, personally or professionally.
So to me success means..living an honest life with ethics....and all those who do so are very respectable to me irrespective of their financial status.
