Tales from a Dad & SonAfter a Long time, I felt like having a Dad Son pep talk with my highly creative 15 year Old Son Dhruv
He is in Class X at the moment
here is an example
Transformers The Game Decepticons Mission 1 Made by Dhruv
Video & Music mixing
If you see his feed you will know him!!!
The music, gaming and works
He loves Dubstep, League of Legends, Mortal Kombat
Dubstep, Techno & Metal Music
His fav artistes are Usher, Scorpions, Metallica, David Guetta & GNR
His choice of music is better than mine trust me on that!
An example is here
Cho'Gath from Transformers
Here is how our conversation went
My son Dhruv Menon is a Gaming & Gun Freak
He keeps making models, drawings,
Bad in Maths
I talked to him
Son would you like to enroll at Aptech for Gaming Design ?
Do what your passion is BUT TELL ME WHAT?
He said no he wants to know about guns
Me: Join NCC
He: Teacher said it is Late
Me: Do you want to join NCC? i WILL ENSURE YOU DO
He: Know I want to make better guns
Me: Then join engineering
Me: Showing him THIS in Metro The Telegraph Calcutta
Vacant seats in Engineering Colleges including Jadavpur University.
Dont worry 12000 VACANT SEATS
NOW LOOK AT THIS IT IS NATIONWIDE TREND
Google search " Engineering Seats Vacant "
NO TAKERS FOR ENGINEERING SEATS
I Told you this 3 years ago
Engineers Please prepare for CAT
Son @dhruv DO WHAT YOU LOVE DOING & You won't work for a day
Moral of the story
Keep talking to your kids
Let them express freely
Do give them some ideas & alternatives.
But in the end
Let them do WHAT THEY WANT TO DO
If they follow their passion, the will excel always!
