he joy of being with family and friends is unbound. Being with loved ones is always an excuse to indulge ourselves in royal luxury. The similarities that we share and the dissimilarities we live with owing to the love we share is something very endearing.
But, as times ticks and as we start becoming (assuming) more and more busy, life changes radically. We convince ourselves that solitude is bliss.
Many times we become so self-engrossed that we stop caring about other people and how they feel. We start hurting people with our silence and by ignoring them.
One fine day, when we wake up from our self-centered (though most of the times we call it “depressingly lonely life”), we feel alone. We wish that someone was there to share our joys and sorrows with. We understand that we have ample money now, but there are not many with who we can share that. There are no friends and extended family to spoil with well-chosen gifts and sumptuous meals at renowned restaurants. We feel abandoned. But what is done is done! Revocation of our past actions reaps no fruits; may be rotten fruits!
Such feelings only heighten on days like these – the festival days!
Today is Diwali – A day which tempts us to wear new dress, eat lip-smacking sweets, share little gossips, discuss latest fashion and movies released, who-is-dating-who in movie world and so on.
And today, all of you who have abandoned your loved ones... who have taken others for granted... ignored the phone calls and pings of loved ones... who thought people who care for you are actually being nosy... and important of all, if you have avoided others by giving the excuse of being busy or I-am-like-this crap, then please WAKE UP!
Finding people who care for you is rare... And important days without the wishes of loved ones are weird.
Money can wait... If you can work for 12-15 hours a day for your career... you can spare a few five minutes for those little hearts who are waiting for your sweet-nothing...
On this Diwali day, refresh your contacts...
Happy Diwali J
But please be safe!!
