As it is shared with me, so thoughtfully by my friend, Uma Chandrasekaran, in the context of my 'post', "Whose Shoes Are You Wearing", it is befitting that this be shared with all...honoring the Master and Uma. I must accept as touched I am by this sharing, I hope that this touches all parents, parents-to-be, hoping-to-be-parents, children too (so that they get over the fear that by following their calling they are committing a crime against their parents)...and teachers (as they have a huge role to play; as friend, philosopher, guide--spotting the spark and its nature, and guiding the student accordingly)...and what we get is all running in their own shoes...neither borrowed nor forcibly worn.
It hardly matters whether the post has been a prequel to this masterpiece...or this masterpiece is a sequel to the post. What matters is that it would be truly befitting when it benefits, as is intended. The benefit is the matter that is wished for materialization.
