What is the treasure of tomorrow? The young are tomorrow’s jewel; Our progeny, our gold; They are our hope, And our pride; With energy and enthusiasm They bustle; A blessing is our offspring; If you want them to grow, That is laudable, indeed; Then you go ahead and help; Do something to keep them up; Do what you should do; Give them a chance; You owe them a duty to do so; To facilitate; Above all, Do not stand on their way; You cannot do that; If you do, it will be sinful; You will be A barrier to their growth. Which is contradictory by itself; But, you know, The young are meant to grow; Once you’re born, You haven’t a choice But to grow; Yes, they must grow; Give the young a chance to grow; The young want their chance To grow; Make our treasure Of tomorrow realize The fullness of their being.
I am in the fortunate position of looking considerably younger than I am. It is lovely, and I do what I can to keep it this way; face yoga, meditation, seeds in my porridge. Daily smoothies packed with ground seeds and powders. I also take about 14 different supplements every day.
Stepping into the business world as a young-looking person, however, is a different story. People struggle to support a young person, emotionally. It is a primal urge. I hold no judgement. Ageing is hard – hence the aforementioned daily routine.
I think compassion is the only way through it, for the young and old. We all have our struggles. Remember young people do not have the experience to understand their emotions yet. Growing up is a rough time. Likewise society persecutes us for ageing, despite all the experience and understanding and philosophising we offer.
“The amazing exhibition of talents by our young people is enough to allay the fears of those parents who are jittery about where their progeny would get jobs when they grow up. Of course, they will create their jobs. What parents should concern themselves with is the provision of opportunities for quality education for their offspring. If well equipped with the necessary intellectual prowess that quality learning offers, these young ones will rise to the challenges of their times.”

6 Kms to the south of Haldwani is Patwa Dangar, a place so high that you could touch the clouds with raising your hand just above the shoulders. This is sort of an unexplored hill station which surprisingly has a circuit house and a small village scattered over the highs and lows of steep hill.
12440 ft. (3792 m) above the ground you have to be really tough to live out here.
This is one of the first accounts of my adventures starting from college days. I shall post the series in continuation of the same. Watch this space for more!
“What I see young people doing gives me confidence that they will be up to the challenges of their times. That is very comforting. What we cannot do, I see them doing with much ease. With them, there is hope for a brighter world.” Romilia Quotes.
Listen to your parents;
They will give you good advice;
They know better than you;
And understand life;
They like to see you succeed.
Don’t ignore what they say
Else you run into trouble;
If you obey your patents,
And show love to them,
They will bless you.

How wonderful to see children full of excitement and going to school. School should be a happy experience. However this is not the full picture because there are some children who are not so happy at school because of bullying. Having to suffer in later years for things that happened during this time, having life prospects, physical and mental health derailed is a terrible thing.
The onus is still on parents to notice the effects of bullying while it is happening. Sometimes we put tensions and occurrences at school and home down to teenage angst, when the child is actually going through intense humiliation from name calling, hunger from pocket money being taken and emotional and physical abuse. So let’s be quick to only to observe and save our children but to secure their future happiness. Cover them with prayers too.
Let’s also push for governments, education authorities and schools to put some policies of Zero-Tolerance to Bullying in place.
