Sharmaji was a middle class man, and he had a dream that once his son grows up, and gets settled, he(sharma) would sit in the balcony in the morning, with his wife and drink tea, read newspaper free of all responsibilities. But his son decided to go abroad..now he was coming for a few weeks...so Mr. sharma thought that he can fulfill his dream for atleast 2 weeks, his wife thought..my legs would get some rest now..DIL will look after the house, I will play with the children and enjoy their company.
There his son and family were thinking about their India trip, son said..I am so tired of all these deadlines and all the work, I am going home,and relax, papa is there , I will ask him to complete some of my paper work also. Wife said..I am so fed up of cooking all the time and taking care of the children..I will just sit there..mom can look after the kids and cooking..
When dreams clash..everything goes down..kya hona tha, son went back earlier than planned..parents were totally dissappointed..nobody remained happy.
This is the synopsis of a story i read in a magazine and thought of it..why it happens?..Its always the wrong expectations.
Lets take the parents first..They always postpone their life for children,instead children should be a part of their life, not life itself..If they need help they must employ a domestic help..may be cut some other expenses but spend on getting help..They must save for their retirement, instead of providing only for the children,nothing for their old age.
For the children..when they go home, they are grown ups and their parents have grown old now, so instead of taking help, they should try to help them. For relaxing they must take another holiday...on their own.
