No matter how big you grow into,
No matter how wise you consider yourself,
No matter, how careful you are with maintaining public perception,
No matter, how hard you work on your personality,
The way you interact and behave with different stakeholders in your life, determines the real character of the individual,
Be it your wife whom you get to say good morning to each day of your life,
Be it your parents or siblings whom you get to talk to once in a while in this modern world,
Be it the driver who drops you to your office on each working day,
Be it the security guard, who tends to secure your life more than anyone else,
Be it the house maid, who makes your house functional each day,
Be it the office boy, who makes your stint in office comfortable,
Be it the colleagues and boss who tend to make you feel important,
Be it the grocery guy who tend to bring to your doorsteps the fruits of hard work of the farmers in our country,
Be it any random guy that you come across in this beautiful journey of life,
At every point in your life, you get to interact with innumerable people,
on whom: you may or may not consider yourself dependent on;
What qualifies as maturity, is being able to make that all important interaction:
Treating it as the very last interaction that you will ever get to do in your lifetime.
Not realizing that one day, it will all come to an end,
Be it your ego/persona,
Be it the luxury cars that you get to sit in or drive,
Be it the assets that you own or aspire to own,
All will vanish in thin air or ether as they refer it to as in Vedic texts.
How soon you realize this and work on that all important interaction is your choice!
