S for….

They say only unsuccessful are the ones who delve into spiritual stuff,

For they are too busy doing what they are good at,

True?

Well, let us look at the likes of Amitabh Bacchan, Shahrukh Khan, Sachin Tendulkar,

Yes,

They did what they were good at or became good at,

But haven’t they followed certain religious and spiritual fundamentals in their life,

Be it taking the first shot at a particular time on a movie set,

To

Wearing the right or the left pad first as a batsman in a cricket match,

No matter what S stands for in your life,

I guess spiritually forms such a core part of our lives,

Be it the successful or the not so successful ones,

That we all tend to delve or seek refuge in the same!

So, what does S stand for in your lives?

EV

Oh, what a polite and obedient girl, she is!

Oh, what a responsible man he has become!

Oh, what personality!

And it goes on and on,

These very adjectives are what we crave for day in day out,

An external validation (EV) of sorts from the who’s who of our society,

No matter what,

We want to look good in front of these very eyes that matter to us,

All our thoughts and actions get influenced,

And we end up becoming a conditioned being,

Anything wrong with that, you may ask?

Well,

Nothing wrong I would say,

Just that every thought and every act based on this thought has a consequence,

Considering, more often than not, we are under tremendous pressure seeking this EV,

We tend to get caught up in this web of social seeking, so much so,

That

We tend to drift far away from the very essence of what life might be,

Of course the choice is yours to let it happen to you or not!
