জারিয়ার ভবিষ্যৎ নিয়ে আমার ভাবনাঃ সাব্বির খান (জারিয়ার বাবা)

My elder daughter Zariya loves painting, crafting and such vocational activities so much. More than anything in the world she always loves to engross herself into painting everything she sees and imagines. Her favorite pastime is making a lot of tools, toys, appliances, machines, etc. that she imagines or watches in real life as well as in the television channels.

Her innovations surprise us like anything; sometimes we can’t believe our eyes seeing her innovative thinking. Not just as a father, but as a common viewer of her activities, I think she has some extraordinary capabilities which cannot be appreciated by the normal academic institutions; she needs a special care to nurture and develop her special skills into her regular caliber. She is not much interested in regular conventional studies of her school. Neither I & my wife are in favor of ruining her innovative mind by forcibly putting her into the pressures of conventional studies of our schools.

What to do then?

I and my wife both have struggled a lot in our lives to get a better education, a bigger degree and therefore grab a better job in the end. Our struggle for a better lifestyle is just ongoing and seems never-ending. We both had knacks in arts & culture and educational dreams; such as, I loved English literature, writing articles (and few of my articles on marketing, brand, and TQM were published in different national newspapers and popular magazines & were much appreciated), I loved acting and did some short drama for the company I worked; my wife love decorating, events management (she worked in events for a long time also & did very well), etc.

But we both had to forgo our wishes and dreams to fit in the conventional lifestyles of the so-called professional world. Because if you can’t earn pennies, your life will turn into a failure, you must establish yourself for the competitive world of careerist people. If some time is left for yourself and if you can afford, then you may spend few hours for yourself to PLAY with your wishes & likings.

Not 1% of people of the world can do what they love, for their livelihood. All people dance in the direction of other; no working on “own dream”.

I want my kid to do what she loves; to live a life on her own terms and dreams. I don’t want to force her to be a skilled person in any conventional professions of the world; rather I want her to be skilled for herself, in a profession that is created or invented by her own. I want her to do what she loves.

I was getting dejected day by day thinking about how I can get my dear child her own environment of learning; I was getting frustrated over her sad face during the study time. When I see her helpless face while learning hundreds of numbers, names, words & letters in Bengali & English Languages, I see myself in her eyes during my childhood. I also feel helpless for her. I can realize that doing something that I don’t want to do is like breathing poison every moment.

But I won’t let that happen to her just as it happened with me and probably with millions of kids around the world. A ray of light appeared into my mind when I got introduced to the “Kids Time” and their activities. I found exactly what I was looking for. I found exactly what my child likes to do. I am very happy that someone has been courageous enough to initiate such a non-conventional project. Although they’re doing it in a small extent, I believe they’ll get thousands of people who had been already looking for a place like this for their kids.

Thank you, Kids Time!
