This guy has a dream

The belgian court says no.
A young guy wants to leave Belgium and study in India.
But the government says No way.
Its not an impulsive act. so why cant he go.
The Belgium court is not like this when young guys leave for Syria.
Understand?? I cant
This is what the my News paper writes abt the situation.

A Ghent court has ruled that a 15-year-old boy cannot move to Tibet. The boy from East Flanders wanted to travel to India to follow a special training to become a Buddhist monk. His intentions became the centre of media attention and also caught the interest of the police.

15-year-old Giel has been dreaming of becoming a monk since he was a little child. A judge of a juvenile court decided to allow the boy to go yesterday, but the judicial authorities launched an appeal against this decision.

The mother and her son appeared before the Ghent court of appeal today. “We should have left for the airport earlier”, she said, “before the police were on our doorstep. Then he would have left anyway.”

The flight for the boy had already been booked, the plane was due to take off at 4 pm. The Ghent judge did not allow the boy to leave. “First, an investigation will take place into the family situation of the minor”, a short statement said.
“A Buddhist always sees the positive side of things”

Some claim there are problems with his education in the family, but the mother denies this. “If there was a problem, or even just a suspicion of a problem situation, then measures would have been taken already”, she argues.

An uncle however says the bond between the boy and his mother is too intense and therefore harmful. He claims the boy had an isolated life: “He should have the chance to grow up in a normal environment where he can meet children of his own age.” In an interview given to the VRT radio station MNM, Giel denied he led an isolated life.

The boy still hopes that everything will be okay, and that he will be allowed to leave at a later stage. He did his best to keep his dream alive: “That’s the good thing about Buddhism. You learn that every cloud has a silver lining. I am confident that one day I will realise my dream.” The training in Tibet takes 15 years

  2. prenin says:

    It sounds a bit over-controlling, but once he is old enough he can still go – and the courts won’t be able to stop him! πŸ™‚

    Buddha was also very patient… πŸ™‚

    God Bless my sweet friend!

    Perhaps it is his young age that has
    prompted a tighter security on him, once
    he is eighteen he should be able to go,
    so three years isn’t a long time to wait for
    his dream to be realised and who knows,
    maybe he will change his mind?

    An interesting story this one Sweeti πŸ™‚
    Have a lovely rest of weekend my lovely
    and great friend πŸ™‚

      it wont change his mind im sure of that Geoff.
      He lives like a Bogghist for years and years
      He wants simple to be where he wants.So many students go to Canada or Australia at younger age for study.
      i wish u also a wonderful weekend

  4. A boy with a peaceful heart and a peaceful dream is being hindered in pursuit of his dreams, and yet all over the world youths are allowed to leave their country in pursuit of wars, something is not right in humanitys thinking.

  5. dreams like flowers crushed
    dreams to bloom refused
    dreams to reality to change
    dreams seen as fools mind
    yet who doth care
    dreams die in the deep recess of heart
    failure the blame the dreamer got
    tis a pity in tis world
    dreamers and dream never cherished
    borders and flags of countries spearate
    yet bood flows in color red
    to all human in tis world held
    life is to choose

    freedom not others choose for u
    find me a spirit
    a free spirit
    the spirit is abused
    by politics and nations at large

      even if its in few years But he will
      U know more then anybody how politics works
      crazy world.
      enjoy the weekend buddy

    Whether the boy is too young or under age, if he knows what he wants he should be allowed to attend the monestry and study Buddihism and mix with other people that are his own age. Although the studies take 15 years perhaps he will mature in that time and gain great knowledge in every way and grow in confidence and maturity.The young man has a dream that isnt been allowed to be explored.
    sweetie san!

      true Michiko san its a sad thing And knowing that negativ issues just go on and on. He has a dream and the government is very good in destroying him.
