A series of incidents:
A guy born and brought up in an effluent family in India, goes to Canada to pursue his higher studies and commits suicide for the want of not being able to meet his own expectations, based on the comparison he draws with his classmate.
A guy makes it to a premier institute in India and commits suicide while in his final year, because he gets an F (fail) in one of the courses.
Makes one ponder what kind of society one is living in and the kind of upbringing it has to offer to the next generation.
Conditioned from the childhood itself to draw comparisons,
Conditioned to compete and be a part of the rat race,
Conditioned to jump to conclusions for the want of immediate gratification and not having a long-term perspective in mind,
Conditioned to think in a manner which might make no sense at all to the very fundamentals of life,
Is this what we desire for our kids and the next generation?
Is this what’s the purpose was to bring a new life in this world?
Well, it’s high time, one delves into the above questions and begin to change the way we all have got habituated to living our lives in a senseless manner.
For, if we don’t respond, the day is not far, when such inclinations might become the only guiding force in life, needless to say, leading to a much worse situation that what it is right now.
The question though is, do we have the mindset and willingness to bring about this change?
