You would have thought, that you are the bundle of joy to your parents. Of course you were. When I was born, the times were simpler. (I know, I sound old, but, trust me when I see my sister, I really believe in in the term, 'When I was born' )
I mean, there was no cable T.V., heck, DD2, was launched when I was 7 maybe. There was school, there were simpler birthday parties, and there was a concept of Holidays, yeah, like summer vacation in the hills.
The parties have to be themed, there has to be a digital television provider, there are over 500 channels in ever imaginable language, in every kind of genre that you can think of. There is the computer, which has made sure that, world is shrinking.
And, you work your ass off, and still crib, like really crib about the lack of money. I totally believe that, all of us have become such complex beings, and so, so, into the materialistic life that we have actually stopped really looking around.
I feel so bad, that, when I do my basic research on houses, house loans and dream of owning a house, of my own, its scares the hell out of me thinking, how the hell will I be able to afford one. Everything has become so expensive, that at times, I feel like an idiot to even ask for money from my father. I feel ashamed to use his money for my extravagance of eating out with friends. I mean, I avoid going to college, so that, yeah, I don't end up spending money, unnecessary.
You know, whenever, I hear about pay packets of my friends, and all, I feel so nice, always so happy for them that they are earning money. But, as soon as they start earning, they realise their cost of living-
Which is DAMN expensive.
And thus all our life, we try to make it beautiful, for people we love. Not really us. And, in the end, don't even have time to look around, and really live the life that we were always hoping for... or do we?
The world looks scary out there.
The practicalities, are pretty much giving killer looks, and if looks could have killed,
then, well, I am a ghost and BOO to you all!!!
