Having Parents Belonging To Two Different Religions Is The Best Thing That Has Happened To Me
Apr 06, 2017
With so much said about inter-religion marriages and so many people opposing it, being a child born to parents that belong to different religions, what I can say is, it is the best thing ever happened to me and I’ll also tell you why.
Since my parents belong to two different religions, what happens as a result is I grew up learning about two religious beliefs (which is always better than one).
It teaches you to respect the differences of individuals and yet respect the people for who they are and not for what religion they belong to.
With my mother coming in from a Maharashtrian family and father from a Christian household, my father did not just break conservative boundaries for me, but also for my mother.
Now since my parents were not just from different religions but also from different parts of the country (which is mostly the case) I had two different hometowns that I could visit.
Imagine growing up travelling to different places and having new experiences? Doesn’t that sound good?
In addition to all the above it’s just great being in an environment at home which is diverse, where everyone is tolerant of each other’s beliefs and where you can chose your own belief and be alright with it.
