Not all parents can do that. But a few are taking some interest to make their wards all-rounders...!

NASA, India ain't red yet, and we have low standards of living. And after seeing the state of affairs of our RUN OF THE MILL REAL LIFE hockey player, gymnist, musician , dance star etc., many parents just get too scared about their children's futures. I was a rebellious type , still am :) When I was under pappa's wing, Police Officer Uncle was so kind , he would ask if I ate well, he would even send his constables to buy me chocolate etc. Customs uncle used 2 keep me in his lap....

To cut a long story short, I just defied my parents academic aspirations for me and took up self employment purely as an act of "can do" rebellion, and I can tell u the same police officer that bought u chocolate suddenly starts treating u like a criminal for no reason and wants 25k INR for every 100k INR worth of goods that passes thru his checkpost. Customs uncle who used to keep me in his lap now wants me to keep 40 percent of total invoice value on his lap.....

Police officer uncle would've still b ...more

A very small percentage who can afford to do are doing.. but others become practical and encourage studies first and then any other activity..........
