Parenting Tips From Tom and Jerry!! 6720

I believe there is no one who is not familiar with the Tom and Jerry cartoon program. Especially the adult generation of today. Most of us grew up enjoying this show on TV. We laughed our heart out every time Tom chased Jerry and of course the remarkable wit and intelligence of Jerry that helped in saving his life. There were no much dialogues and the entire show was probably these two running around the house, yet it is a show I would love to watch even today.

Every time my daughter switches to a cartoon channel while watching TV, all I see is the Doraemon series and there are so less good cartoon’s these days. However, have you ever observed what did the Tom and Jerry show teach us or what message did they give us? Wondering what can a cartoon teach other than just entertaining us? Here are a few tips for parents and life lessons that we can make our kids learn from these both legend cartoon characters.

Do not underestimate anyone based on their size

We all clearly know that, though Jerry being the teeny mouse always won even though Tom was bigger and more powerful than him. In life also, do not ever judge based on their size or power. Just because someone is taller, heavier or powerful does not mean you do not stand a chance in something. It all depends on the skills, knowledge, and intelligence you have to tackle.

Unity is Strength

Of course, both Tom and Jerry fought with each other always in the entire show. But when there was another third entry like a dog or any other common enemy to both, they always became friends shaking hands and fighting their enemy together. Now, that’s some serious life skill to learn that team work gives you the best results, isn’t it?

Dating Lessons

Although this is not a lesson for our dear children, definitely it can work for the adults. Tom had always been the charmer among the lady cats. Better you buy some Tom and Jerry DVD’s and watch the show again as for how to impress the lady on the first date. Warning: Make sure the Jerry of your life is not around to spoil your date.

Trust your loved ones and keep them

Just because a family member or a friend who might have made you feel sad with any misunderstandings, do not let them go. Forgive them and let them back in your life. Just like how Tom and Jerry kiss and make up in the end.

Friends stay through thick and thin

As much as they chase each other to cause bodily harm, both Jerry and Tom do not want each other dead. Every time when any one of them is seriously injured the other goes to help or to save. In other words, they actually cannot live without each other. What they tell us is, keep up those good friends and never lose them. Fighting, misunderstandings are part of a relationship, but in the end, the love what you have is all that matters.

Failures are stepping stone to success

Our tiniest friend Jerry never stops trying to trap Tom back and never gets intimidated by his size or let’s go easy. Every time he fails, he comes with a new plan and new idea. Exactly what we should do in life. Do not stop trying till you are successful in your attempts.

Face your problems with confidence

Noticed how Jerry walked out of its hole knowing that Tom was waiting outside to catch him? His confidence made Tom to be shocked and gave a way to escape route to Jerry. In life too, face your problems with confidence and think in a calm and rational mind. You will surely be able to solve it. You will definitely be able to find solutions.

Isn’t these are some of the best lessons we could learn? Tom and Jerry were sure the best cartoon show I have watched and I thank the entire team who made it. Though the show ended, we still can see some of the episodes on YouTube and other similar online channels. Hope you get inspire your kids and stay strong in life. Parenting today is not that easy nowadays. So, why not use all that we have to instill values into our kids?

Whoa! Writing about them made me watch the show again and am off to YouTube to watch an episode. I believe you like to share the article with your loved ones just so you could inspire them too. After all, Tom and Jerry also thought us that sharing is caring.

Not Just a Metro Story!! 3413

I was traveling in the metro today; at Yamuna Bank station, a person’s mobile fell on the platform while he boarded the train. Thereafter he pressed the button to talk to the metro conductor, who put a security guard to the task of finding his mobile. It was found and returned to the owner finally, as we heard from the public announcement 5 minutes after.

In the meanwhile, during the panic moments, and after the mobile was found, about 10 People in proximity to the mobile owner (in the metro) were constantly conversing about this episode: some assisting, some commentating, and some just overly concerned.

I don’t intend to show anyone in a bad light; on the contrary, I put forth one point: India is essentially not an individualistic Society.

Within the blood of Indians, flows collectivism. Even if there’s lack of initiative and bravery by Junta to actively rescue someone, it goes without saying that we are all concerned. We like to stop at accidents, talk to strangers in metros, and many others, because we are still a village-society at heart- deep within our blood.

Would you blame these people for not being brave enough to “rescue” others? I don’t. I don’t because I understand that we Indians still struggle to survive every day; we don’t have ample bread, and we live in a society full of petty crimes. Our police and judicial system are such slow and painful, that it requires extraordinary courage, and more importantly, ample time to behave like a responsible citizen.

With all its lacunae, India is at least a society living in collectivism. I remember, a few years back, I met with an accident in Noida sector 62. It was such that my car had overturned; though before it did, I managed to decrease the pace of car manifold, and when the car actually imbalanced and fell, we were almost unharmed.

That wasn’t the miraculous part. What was miraculous was, that within 3 minutes, 20 people gathered, picked up my car, and put it back on its wheels. They immediately advised me to flee the accident scene (I hadn’t crashed into anyone, only my car had fallen because of a sharp turn I took), otherwise, police would come to cause me trouble.

What a wonderful episode that was (well, of course, besides my car being damaged).

But point being, we Indians are not that bad at all!

Now, look at us. Us, the educated youngsters. When we see the jhuggis, the bastis, the urban villages, camps, and shanties; aren’t we all filled with at least inquisitiveness? At least this thought flows: who are these people, and from where are they?


Those 7-year-olds selling roses: we surely have at least once thought- I’ll bloody inquire and assess what could be done about this shitty state of affairs.


I do really believe that none of us could be really happy unless all of us are.

But then what to do? Surely there people live in unsafe bastis, full of criminals.

Well, kinda NOPE. They’re just helpless. Those bastis that you think is full of criminals: Nope. They’re just really poor and needy. Those corners you think are full of drug addicts, sitting with knives? Well, drugs, yes; knives, no. इतना भयंकर कुछ नहीं होता।

Those of you sitting on the edge of striking a conversation with these people- DO IT!

Those people about to try and help those people out- DO IT!

If your friend circle is thinking of entering a basti, talk to its head, see what could be done- DO IT!

If one friend circle takes up a basti, within a year, everything will be clean and green in its truest sense. You see, the government is mighty, but far from all encompassing.

You know what you could do? Write letters. Talk to the Pradhan of a basti, enquire local problems, talk to government officials, write letters to them every week. Let me tell you this as a lawyer: As per law, no letter could be simply thrown in the bin. A letter sent creates a record- forever. And records are very damning.

There are many other ways and avenues, which even you’ll get to know, and better than me.

But first, do it. घर से बाहर निकलो। It is indeed a worthwhile pursuit.

I will rise from the ashes, I will rise every time you make me fall! 245

Dear All,

This is my small dedication to all the women who have defeated the orthodox ideologies and hypocrisies and are fighting the battle to emerge as a winner in life. This poem is an expression of our strength, power, and thinking.

I will rise from the ashes, I will rise every time you make me fall.
The blames and allegations are not going to deter me to be what I am and whom I want to become.

Every time the world will knock me down, I will rise from the ashes.
Day and night are no different to me
If I want to become what I want to be.

I have been knocked down many times
Told that I can’t face the struggles of the world
But you forgot that I was born as a female, which in itself is an addition of Fe – iron to the male.
I am iron, I am steel
Maybe I’m not a man but I was born to face every damn deal.
You can’t judge my figure, my nature and my colour
Based on my clothes, ideas or gender.
I was born to be as free as you are,
Live the world as merrily and as I can.

Don’t give us the freedom which is shackled,
Let us be free to fly as high as Mallard.

Freedom of expression is not based on gender,
Then why speaking for myself becomes a matter so troublesome.
Let us talk, walk and laugh,
Without having a second thought.
It’s not much to demand
Just the basic rights that we should have in hand.
