because people speak English
A father is seated on his sofa holding the result of his son with worried face. The name of his son is Jack. He shouts to call his son who comes taking slow steps. He is looking down.
The conversation starts!
The father: what is this? I did not expect this result.
Jack: Dad, I have said I am not good in science. I want to be a painter.
The father (shouts): shut your mouth! I want you to be an engineer and you would be so. I do not want to hear any excuses. (Tries to make his voice soften) My dream was to be an engineer. Due to some reasons I could not do it. I hope you will do it for me!
Jack: But dad! What about my dream?
The father (furious now): your dream? You want to be a painter? Do you know what the status of an engineer is? Could you imagine the salary of an engineer?
Jack: I know dad. I would not be able to earn much money. But I would feel satisfied. Is satisfaction nothing? I will be happy dad! I know, I am not good in science and I would be a bad engineer. I like to paint. Let me do what I like. Please dad!
The father: what about my happiness? What about my dream? It means your father is nothing for you? I would be happy to see you as an engineer. It is final. You may go to your room now.
Jack is now alone is his room. He is pondering, “I cannot make my father’s dream come true and he would not let me do what I want. If I try to be an engineer, I would be cheating myself and If I try to be a painter, I would be making my father disappointed. What should I do?"
