Last week Ramya, who blogs at Chittrana wrote a post which had a collection of her poems. Almost all of them bowled me over, and that's when I knew, I wanted something like that on my page. Looking at her work, I feel she is underrated in terms of followers. She has a wonderful comic timing, but is also versatile enough to pull off a thriller or a serious issue. And on a personal level, although I never met her, I feel very connected to her, through her writing. A totally positive, spirited and a perky person, who better than her, to write the first guest post on Perky hours :-) So over to her now.
Jenny, I know her through her blogs and for sure I know you all will feel the same if I say that just by this acquaintance I feel very connected to her. She is being my constant encouragement, now that she is ready to risk her reputation and to get me into limelight, I mean she asked me to do a guest post on her blog!!! Trust me, I was super nervous about her invitation. Please understand me I cannot risk ya! Perky Hours is so very pretty it has best readers and critics.
But then it’s dear Jenny who has given me this opportunity. So for her I started thinking and really thinking so as to come up with something really different from all of my blogs. I thought I will break out from nutshell and discuss about issues like effects of Pornography on children. But then as I started thinking I couldn’t stop laughing remembering the incident happened in my childhood when we hardly knew anything like this exists.
I was studying in class 7 and my sister dear Class 4. My sister one day told me she has a joke telling session and that she has no clue what to do. So I thought I should help her and find some jokes for her. I decided to go to my elderly cousin’s room as he had lot of books collected but hardly had he let us in his room anytime! So I planned well carefully sneaked in and picked a book which had “Jokes” in its title and rushed out of his room. I proudly asked my sister to take this and read out a joke from that. That Friday, we both got into our respective classes. By afternoon an attendant came to my class and announced that Class 4 teacher wants to meet Ramya. I was super excited anticipating my appreciation but it turned out something like this…
As soon as I entered I saw my sister kneeling down and teacher full red eyed in anger…
Teacher: You gave this book to your sister
Me: Yes Mam jokes book
I still pity my father who had to apologize for no mistake of his and to get me and my sister back home after finish our punishment of kneeling down for an hour after school hrs!!!
And it was only then I realized there are books which are to be read only by adults!!!
This was in the past but yes on a serious note this is a really big concern. Today in the internet age Kids have access to every possible things and its getting increasingly difficult for Parents to educate their kids on these lines. Any knowledge when half known is really dangerous but then how and who has to educate children on topics like sex? Yes Schools have to ensure proper Sex education but I also strongly recommend Parents to be aware of how much knowledge to be shared with their kids at every age and to gradually educate them to understand that sex is not something to try out or something to laugh about but it is about law of nature and one has to learn more about the same when he\she is mature enough to make their own decision.
Its wisdom to know but it is enlightenment to understand it fully.
Ok Friends, I leave you all with this thought!
And thank you Jenny for having given this chance to interact with your blog sphere.
