One's own life
I have started thinking a lot about life and how people live it.Why do i sit and think about all these when others around me just keep going with their works?just because I don't have any other work or they don't have time to think about this?well,both more or less mean the same.Unlike people of previous generation who lived in joined families we live in nuclear families.They had better options to learn life from real time examples as they grew up watching different characters within their own house.But our way of learning and living life has been different.We rely on books and media to learn what it is.But very often the realms of those sources are not reality but fantasy.So eventually when we plunge into life we find it totally contradictory to the ideas we had about it.
I have heard ,read a lot about life like,"life is short,yet sweet","afterall its your own life and you have to live it in your own way". But i find and believe that,most people don't define their life.instead life defines them. I have no idea about people who have riches to write their own scripts but am talking about people who dream about everything but not about taking risk or could not afford to do it.Most of them live their life only in the time their job grants them.Is this the way to live life or is this the life all about?am I complaining unnecessarily?Then why do we have passions ,principles,so and so.Are they useless?Are we not entitled to have them or are we entitled to have them tightly locked in the dark rooms of heart with a vow to never let them out?The questions continue.Its not a question about freedom of living.because its said that in our country everybody has right to live. But its the question about the eligibility and prelims we need to pass before enjoying that freedom.And I feel for most people, life runs out before they pass those eligibilities and prelims.So what, they are entitled to live a free retired life.
