Too much hype created over the celebration of these `Days'
All parents love their children according to their set of circumstances. Some are able to express and show it to their kids. Some show it to the world. No parents have ever existed who wanted to destroy the life and career of their kids.

We all get swept up in the hype machine. Nobody is immune to that…… Steven Cojocaru.

Inside the Jungle Hill at Solan of Himachal Pradesh, I've seen a chimpanzee darting through air half way, at the height of a tamarind tree to clasp her falling baby from a branch. The problem is - the too much hype that is created around these relationships that are not real that is just a part of vanity.

Some parents often find it helpless and fail to do much for their kids. A family is not an insular isolated island or unit is perfection. Every situation is different. Some have the wherewithal to show their feelings and efforts and some just stare empty at the wall. For some it is road to sacrifice their existence and no one knows about it. To extol too these so-called days is to present oneself into a very positive eclat which is usually farce.

The celebrations of these days like 'Mother's Day' 'Father's Day' Valentine Day' 'Friendship Day' 'Teachers Day' or any other day like that makes me uneasy. It gives me an impression that other than that specific day, the very objects of these celebration, on rest of the days, are to be rendered insignificant, quaint and they collapse into the rut of routine. I feel they are there with me all the times as the guiding spirit, subject of reverence, object or love, source of pleasant and fragrant memories and fountains of inspiration in whatever form order or whichever role they affected the life. May be I'm wrong.
