I stopped my car in the lane beside café bahar. It was 5:20 in the morning and I had no clue what I was up to. It was cold and dark outside and I pushed my seat back thinking to have a small catnap until 6. I smiled thinking about the story of a guy who turned from innocent to indifferent within six years. Well, it’s not my opinion but it was what people called him coz you will never be able to accept any guy who ignores you right on your face. It started this way….
I have been gathering few facts for the past 2 days and I wasn’t surprised looking at the results of few surveys conducted. One of those surveys included a question “According to you what’s the latest thing happening around?”
Change – 46%
Money – 22%
Social Service – 19%
Traffic – 7%
Others – 6%
What surprised me was the social service factor. Majority of the youth who started earning are into social service. Feels good to see that our generation is being part of such acts where people are driving themselves to engage or join hands with NGO’s where there are no selfish reasons behind. I was quite impressed with a show named "The scholar"
which was aired on “star world”. A reality television show that offered college scholarships as prizes. Ten high-achieving high school seniors compete for a full scholarship to the University of their Choice in a competition that tested their skills in academics, leadership, and school spirit and community service.
One of my office colleagues addresses even a waiter at a restaurant as “sir “. I asked him “don’t you think it’s sarcastic?”…he answered “ I have no intentions of being sarcastic and I really mean it.” He says “ koi bhi aadmi bada ya chota nahi hota
..it’s only the work which he does is big or small and we should never underestimate anyone.” I was really happy and surprised listening to his answer. I mean, we all gossip or bitch around someone or the other at some point of time..it can be your boss, lecturer or friend. However, I feel that these things should not be discussed in public; after all we are speaking about a person’s character. An example is, TV shows like MTV roadies…wherein it is also conducted on a similar level excluding academics, but you would find nothing except gossips or speaking about everyone’s character when the actual motto behind the show is different above tht you know the whole world is watching you. In fact, there are many good things which we can learn from those kinds of shows also but how many of us are being influenced by it?? When asked we all will confidently answer..” It’s part o the game”. But is the game being played fairly enough?? …..mmm, im nt sure.
Moving to my personal side of life, the guy who was called indifferent and rude was none other than me. I felt no weird and wonderful when I was called like that. “Success does not come by pleasing everyone”. This was the statement which influenced me a lot and brought a change in my outlook However, I do not want to go in detail about this now. It’s all about the change factor which most of us know and face at some point of time in our lives. No wonder why our generations thinks CHANGE as one of the key things happening around.
