Message for the Day….” Today people want to live happily but not lead ideal lives. Parents, for instance, do not set a good example to the children.”

Today people want to live happily but not lead ideal lives. Parents, for instance, do not set a good example to the children. In the modern age, the father does not instruct the child properly and the child does not pay heed to the words of the mother. Where there are some good children, leading a pious life, the fathers rebuke them saying, “Have you gone crazy? Don’t take part in Bhajans or social service.” Parents who behave in this manner are like Hiranyakashipu, who could not tolerate his son worshipping Hari. Today we have many parents like Dhritarashtra and Hiranyakashipu, but few who encourage their children to adhere to righteousness. Children today do not relish edifying works like the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Bhagavatham. They waste their time on reading trash. Parents should see that children do not read bad books. If the nation has to prosper, improvement must start with the parents.
