The Modern Kid - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Born abroad and growing strong
Away from home and motherland
Growing in cosy environs
Pampered by parents, neglected

Loner lost amidst high-tech toys
Craving for love and tender care
Glued to the idiot-box, web-world
Autistic and having own ways

Throwing temper-tantrums for things
Reckless, careless and mischievous
Aping adults, taking all risks
Eating fast foods with fashion fads.

    what to say about this diagnosis! It is very tough to be the children of immigrant parents, who have little time to be with their children, still many of these children have out shined their parents, because they are instilled with eastern values and western smartness... There are a few spoiled brats around, so your diagnosis
    is partially right. (Report) Reply
