The problem I am going to discuss is not restricted to Indian context but more prevalent in third world countries. Why are the parents so unacceptable of the child's interests? The situation worsens when the child wants to explore new fields. We are big enough to live alone but do we not realize the good and bad for us? It is so difficult for some children to make their parents understand what they want to do in life.It is sad how so much talent is wasted because of parents.Someone good at art is forced intoEngineering,the other good at sports is pressurized to study Economics. What are the possible causes besides generation gap and what can be done to change the point of view of the society towards such attitude?
