Parents’ Day

Ever wondered what second Sunday of May and third Sunday of June have in common? Both of them are dedicated to our parents, though each one to one of them.

But then why don’t we have a combination of both and celebrate a PARENTS’ DAY. It makes more sense to me because our life is incomplete without any one of them.

I am glad that I’m not the only one who has ever thought about it and I’m proud to say that my thoughts coincide with the former President of U.S.A. Bill Clinton who declared fourth Sunday of every July as parents’ day.

Also,in South Korea, it is held on May 8th.

Nevertheless the United Nations proclaimed June 1 to be the Global Day of Parents “to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship”.

Also it is interesting to  know that Dianthus Caryophyllus, commonly known as Carnations or clove pink, flowers that symbolize Parents’ Day are given to parents by children in celebrating Parents’ Day in South Korea.

I hope everyone after reading this celebrates Parents’ day at least once every year as a tribute to their parents.

Sharing is not always caring!

“I just ate a blueberry sandwich”, “Oh my god, here’s my new blackberry :D”

“Just bought a Burberry Scarf–feeling delighted”, “In love with Rachel Berry…. #glee”

and there can be thousands of berries being shared in the world of social networking media.

It’s a fact that the first thing people do as soon as they wake up in the morning is not brush their teeth or read newspaper but pick up their devices, turn them on and check their social media updates.

Life has become so technology dependent that i wonder if people would start conceiving digitally someday.

Anyway coming back to the present, i see numerous updates on my facebook home, hundreds of tweets, instagram posts etc. just dedicated to the daily stuff people engage in and other similar people do actually read and promote it. I mean is it necessary to forcefully dump your daily routine on a public platform where people are least bothered about you having a banana pie or harlem shake! Moreover, the fact that people read your updates is not because it’s interesting or admirable, but it’s flashing on their page again and again as you thank each and every soul donating a precious million dollar like over the same.

On the contrary, i am not against social networking , rather i myself find it quite useful sometimes, it keeps you connected to the world while you are on the go but it doesn’t mean you let your online profile act as a GPS fitted over you.

Seriously i wish people use their online profiles as much wisely as they do with their bank accounts, which everybody knows exists but not everyone is required to know everything.

Think, Introspect, and again think before your any activity on the internet because sharing is not always caring.Image
