Strange as it may seem – the most difficult things in life are the ones we deliberately do. From waiting forever not marrying until a ‘right age’ to choosing the ‘right popular career’ (as against pursuing the career of your choice), there seems nothing right about the ‘right’. We all deliberately choose to live in the typecasted, society certified cocoons just to ensure that we are as “successful” as “success” defined by the society. The result is the world today wears a mask and despite global warming, it is ensured that the ‘cool quotient’ is always Kool. Kool has a strange definition – it is how others feel when they look at me and no more, how I feel when I look into the mirror. May be the mirror is also enough thoughtful to portray the ‘Kool’ image of me and not my image for the fear of non conformance.
As if he saw the future, T.S.Eliot commented about a hundred years back,
“Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?”
We live till the time we are our very ownselves; till the time we do what we like and choose to look into the mirror to see what appears and not what is displayed (by the very society loyal mirror).
So, dare to dream your own dreams and pull your sleeves and socks to live upto them!
