I was watching a stand up comedy by Amit Tandon on Netflix yesterday. He is funny enough and watchable, humor is light and never profane or vulgar. There was a part about PTM's (parent teacher meetings). Below is a sentence by sentence translation from Hindi: Now-a-days we have to prepare and go to PTM's. People will judge. Earlier, PTM's were simple. Here teacher, there parent, and there the child. First teacher describes the child's faults, and parent scolds the child. Done. Now-a-days it has changed. I went to my daughter's PTM for the first time, she was in first standard. I am sitting there. There is a lady before me with her son, Agastya. She is telling the teacher, "Ma'am Agastya's grades are fine. Ma'am please don't bring the AC temperature in classroom below 24 degrees. Ma'am, his grades are fine, but he cannot speak properly in public... even if knows a poem, if we make him stand, he does not recite the poem.. please help him reduce his stage fear.. give him opportunity to speak in class." I thought to myself, "Agastya is only 7 years old, what is the use of reducing stage fear! Rajeev Gandhi also doesn't have stage fear, what great has he achieved in life!" That lady is going on and here I am getting more terrified. I didn't have any questions. Asking questions is mandatory! It's my turn! The rest of the parents are sitting behind me... now if I don't ask anything, they will think she is my adopted child! Question: I thought the part about adopted child was downright offensive and not okay even in a comedy show. I was watching it with two adults. One of them agreed with me and said the comment was not cool. The other said if I am so sensitive I shouldn't watch stand up comedy. What do you think? .
