If the friend is doing all this Gayatri Japam and Upanayanam of his
son and his son does not do Sandhya what is the use? People must
decide why they are doing Upanayanam? Is it to make the son do Sandhya
regularly OR to do a social event with relatives and enjoy good food
and forget about Sandhya later? If he is doing it for social purposes
why take all the trouble of 10,000 Japa? No need. I have seen many
boys will not do Sandhya after the Upanayanam probably because the
father is not doing it. After some time they will discard the thread
also and become modern youth. For them Just do the social event and
don't worry about Sandhya. If father is doing Upanayanam of his son to
make him do Sandhya regularly he must do the Japa.
