Everyday I see people around me …
“When are you going clubbing next ? “
“Dude , wana booze tonight ? “
“God ! I need ac …it’s so hot . how can anyone survive without ac ? “
“Shit man …my GF is not talking/upset/angry with me”
This is the case with 90% of “our generation” people . This is what LIFE is all about . This is the age when we can enjoy , right people? So why waste this time ?
I beg to differ …in the last one month I met with some incidents which completely altered me from within . Earlier , I used to see all this as fun …but I can’t now ..i’ll narrate the incidents …you can decide for yourself .
PLACE : *orkut*
There is this group of kids sitting on the floor . Some studying , some playing , some picking at their noses . All of them look so happy , so content .
They’ll wash their own plates ( and yours too…if you ask them ! ) , they’ll offer you a bite before they dig into their own plates , they make their beds before going to school and always switch off the electricity .
Who would say that they are orphans ? Who would say that God has taken away their most precious gift , parents …I saw it people . The way they’ll cuddle up next to you ,the way they look at you when you pat their heads , the way they soemtimes irritate you just to catch your attention .They are so unpretentious … so honest ….they don’t know how to act ! You can see how desperate are they for love … and they’ll shower you with love too …just extend your hand :-)
PLACE : SATYALOK
I went to this old-age-home ….so serene and quiet . This little lady came to us and talked and smiled ….she took photos with us and kept waving until we left .
Such happiness ! I never realized how a person’s company can actually make others happy . I can’t expalin fully ….I feel bad , these people must have had children , they must have dreamed of a nice comfortable old age….and now , they are there all alone . Oh yes ! They have other people there …but look at their eyes …they are all alone !
I saw disabled kids too . Fighting , struggling …..people might think that they are DISABLED …I think they are blessed ! So that they can’t see the ugly ugly world !
And then I think ….here are we . Cribbing about girl-friends ( whom we are going to BREAK UP with after few months ) , drowning liquor , dancing in clubs , smoking , demanding form our parents , spending money on i-pods and cars and bikes .
It just makes me sad …ver ver sad . This “irony” of life .
I see these kids ….they are the ones whp have a RIGHT to be sad . And yet ..they are not . They CHEERFULLY fight LIFE !
It is these rich brats who are DEPRESSED , UPSET , FRUSTAED ….do drugs and go to psyachatrists !
Maybe it’s time we all re-evalute our way of thinking ! I already have .. What about you ?
