I am in limbo. Sometimes I wonder has the world changed or is it me.
What is development all about? Is developing meant to be highrise towers, shopping malls or is it about evolving as a human?
I may not be able to do justice to the medley of thoughts that I am undergoing right now but at least let me try to do put in words what the mind conjures.
Not so long ago, friendships were precious. Guests were treated like royalty. Means were limited but your objectives were not. You survived on limited clothing, which meant you also knew to mend a tear. Simple lives, simple needs.
Now there are a plethora of options. You can opt to wear a sari, jeans, skirt. you decide whether you want to cook in or lunch out. Options, options…….
I like the fact that I do not have to sweat out the whole day in the kitchen. I have my mixer, microwave, and all the other gadgets to make life easy for me. I love that I have the luxury to choose air travel. I love it that my opinion is counted upon even though I belong to the’ inferior’ sex.
Fut still something hurts………
Something has changed.
The fact that a simple necessity of life-water is so very precious now.
Faith is much more scarce now. No I am not talking of just religion or spirituality. Faith in humanity, faith that even in so much of negativity goodness will thrive…..that is missing now
Selfishness is in abundance. Its more of I, me, myself. where are we heading I sit and muse.
And then it hits me that all things change. When I see outside and see the buildings; I should not expect that people will remain the same. People change, expectations change, lifestyles change. Its change that is constant.
Somewhere I too have changed. I have abandoned hopes of a lucrative career for a ‘homely’ life, a life dedicated to my beliefs, so how can I expect that everything around me will remain the same?
