Sometimes I sit and wonder how easy life has become, how very smooth life flows! Social media, ah! Social media! I wonder social media, instead of making is social has made us so very unsocial character! Time, it’s all time’s fault! No, the fault is ours. Newspapers are going to vanish one day, why? Everything is available in the mobile itself! One tap, news read, one tap, done. As simple as that! Why waste money on buying newspapers or should I say distorted sheets of rugged paper?
Mobile, mobile, mobile! I hate the very idea itself, of sitting at a corner in complete melancholy and letting my fingers speak. Some friends promise to come and meet but then they get to see me face to face in video call. What’s the big deal? Job is done, no feelings shared, couldn’t talk for a long time, couldn’t see each others face properly, but what’s the big deal? Job is done. Tearing us apart is the work of this device. I hate it. I HATE IT! Status and status is what people run for. Facebook status, we are doing this and that. What is the use of showing people what we do? I’m tired of this distorted life.
Money, money is what people run for. Money, money and money! Money, let me tell you a very short story about it. One very fine day my father’s friend cam eto our house, good, very well. He asked me what do you want to become when you grow up? I said that I want to become a professor of Comparative Literature and an author. Very well. Now what he said was not that comforting. He said, “Well that’s fine but you will get respect but there is a shortage of money” and my blood started boiling. Money? Who runs for money? I run for respect. Money cannot buy respect, money cannot buy love. Love, kindness and respect are priceless. When my student grows up and reaches his/her aim and still remembers me and meets me or calls me up and tells me that then it is, I think the greatest gift. And that moment of joy is unsharable and priceless.
Be humble, be kind, money and status won’t buy you everything. At least not respect!
Also, throw your phone out of the window that too unless you are 25 and you really need it. *terms and conditions applied*.
