Hello Members,
Recently i watched movie " Tare Zameen Par", i was really fascinated by the theme.The movie wonderfully gives insight about child psychology. What lessons i got frm movie were
1) Every child has his own way of learning and understanding things.
2) Academic record is not the only parameter to judge once ability and performance.
The Big questions is
Are we as parents & society fails to understand children due to race for cut throat competition ?
Members kindly put some light on the issue...

Hi Rahul,
This is such a Great Topic to discuss and I really appriciate Aamir Khan, who has not only think about this but made such a beautiful movie that shows, how careless we are for our children. We think that the way we do that's the perfect way to care a child but we should understand that it differs child to child.
This is the movies which should be shown to each and every parent so they can atleast try to understand their child's capability.
Afcourse many of us don't think about the children and used to put the extra burden of our such BIG Expectations on such smaller shoulders, this movie is the best lesson that has to be learnt by these kind of parents.
Once again hates to Aamir to make Indian Parents aware.................... This is the time to wake up..............otherwise ourself we are going to throw our child out from this competition......................

Dear Sender
Indeed this is a very interesting topic to discuss. Many articles have also been written on the topic
Though we know that the lessons taught since from KG to our graduation it is not relevant to the society and our system only makes the students as grasping machines instead of teaching relevant things to make them to stand on their own and to face the situation at their later stage.
Every parents are interested to make their wards either a professional or make them to win over an interview to earn a job (without knowing the interest of the child and impose their wish on them)
and for that they try to do anything, against the children's wish.
It is sad to say, but unless the pattern of education is changed, we can only discuss.

Hi, I agree with all of you, i think we as a society need to change our mindset and need to to alter our education system for betterment of children. Regards, Rahul S

Dear All,
I am personally very moved with the movie. As it conveys some very interesting messages even for adults in different set-ups like:
A) We all have some or other qualities and expertise and often people and some time (or most of the time WE) over look them. And to identify and polish we all need one external agent . In more technical terms we need a an Expert Called MENTOR.
B) Every one who is a knowledgable may not qualifies as MENTOR..(as the other teachers). Mentor should be one who can understand your speed------> then walk with you -----> help you to identify opportunities to challenge yourself ------>and at the same time ready to accept your competency (if you come -up with one).

Hi Rahul,
I watched the movie and absolutely adored it!!
As HR professionals, I think the movie gave us some food for thought too :
1) as far as I understand it, going beyond child psychology only, every person thinks and comprehends differently
2) Because we think differently, each of us are unique - and that fact has to be acknowledged
3) Like the parents of the child, we too as HR professionals, may be looking at the problem only on the surface of it where as it may be vey deep-rooted.
Thanks to Aamir Khan and the team of TZP, for teaching us a few HR lessons!!

Dear All,
This is a big chain of problem, in fact it is a challenge very much interlinked with so many different issues that we currently have.
The issues related to this problem:
Capitalism Vs Socialism and Communism,
Religious beliefs, Social norms, inequality.
Environmental Concerns,
The philosophy of Business, like the big is better.
Small is beautiful and gandhian thoughts,
Expectations and demands,
Desires and controls, external and internal.
Evolution and the theory of the survival of the fittest.
there are few more, let me look at what you people have to say about all these things.
Infact this discussion and the opening of this topic, takes me to the college days when we like minded friends were meeting once a week as Think tank.
Shall we now start one more Ethinktank.

Hi all,
As HR proffessional, I thought most of you who would watch the movie will appreciate yourselves that you are not amongst those majority of parents that has been projected.
On the contrary, we deal with 3 kinds of people every day in the organization:
The way Amir handles the child is how we need to handle the child in our work place too......

the main problem is with us parents.i am also one of the parents who has pressurised my son to perform.actually this does not help.perhaps our ego that MY son/ daughter has done well prompts us.in this we totally ignore the child's perspective.it's sad.average child carries this negative message for a long time.

really i was crying when i was at that taray zameen pa...
i think first teacher should get inspired from that film rather parents..because it is a teacher who make you champion & unfortunately some teacher at school level really spoil the child shake their confidence ,,,,,,,,,huh,,,,,,,,,,,they used to exhaust their personal problem at school and at innocent childrens by beating them , punish them , keep them quite etc .
Teacher should be polite & helping whatsoever
