Do the clothes make a man?
Today whenever i see the people starting kid's fashion zone or designer clothes or something like that I really feel sad that they are going for something so artificial and giving the children wrong direction
So many people, even my hubby says.if we can afford why not?..so doest everything comes down to affordability/..Not according to me..for children, its about giving them a right perspective in life, emphasis on the right things and secondly there is a time for everything.Once they become adult they may decide in which direction they want to go, but in their childhood it becomes important to teach them sensitivity to the environment and society,and value of good morals Take care of their academics and sports and hobbies.
I dont mean to say that we dont need good clothes or when parents themselves are decked up in labels, why should the children be left out?It is because children out grow the clothes very fast and secondly they feel that clothes are more important than anything else, because they are too young to understand the dynamics of life..
A person will always admire and respect Narayan Murthy irrespective of his clothes...Clothes can bring appreciation and envy, but not the respect to anyone. Thats the reason i feel that we should give more importance to.. what we do than what we wear..
Now many people will say why cant we have both....so we can if we have become an icon for our kids..with our morals and value..It should be in that order only..first character then clothes, not the vice versa.
what is your take?
