It was lunch time and Mrs. Geetha Joshi, a single mother of her only son, Niketan, was yelling on him on the lunch table.

Niketan took a pause and replied with a sigh, “No! I chose radio jockeying as my career because I want to be a voice for every listener who will spread smiles and make people laugh, sing and dance. And above all, I want to be a voice of my mother who brought me up with dignity and on her own terms.”
Mrs. Geetha Joshi : *Silent*
Niketan continued, “Mom! Today you are judging me like people judged you long back. You opted to become a nurse when my father expired, so that I can study and live a happy life. Now, tell me one thing. Shall I also set an example for my kids in future like you did, by choosing radio jockeying as my career or shall I just abide by you?”
