Behrupiya!

They say nothing comes free in life,

On most occasions I guess,

But one thing that’s certainly under our control and don’t have to depend on others is,

The face or the Venetian mask we choose to portrait to the world,

Depending on different situations and circumstances,

and

Various roles we play,

Be it a son/daughter,

A parent/grandparent,

A spouse,

A worker,

or

A boss,

Question being,

Does it fall under the category of a behrupiya or an impressionist?

And if it does,

Does it serve better to be one than not to be?

Who is a behrupiya after all?

One who possesses the intellect to know what’s required in a situation,

One who is a master at performing the way one is supposed to,

One who understands the person in front of him/her,

and

One who is empathetic enough not to hurt the other.

Looks like it’s fantastic thing to be a behrupiya,

What matters though is the intention behind being one!
