Are we losing our senses?



It's been quite disappointing to see people turning down themselves to the most important feelings, empathy, and sympathy. People nowadays are turning somewhat selfish, becoming money-centric and the entire thought process has changed.

All they are caring nowadays is about their own needs, their own desires and are willing to do whatever it takes, even if means hurting someone forgetting what they want.

The result, relationships are becoming sour. This mindset has led them to be self-centric. The thing is playing with their minds and the problem is, nobody knows what the actual problem is!

I recall several incidents when people are becoming numb to what is happening around. I step into the Delhi Metro only to find a bunch of living dead people. I step into one of the person's foot. Ideal reaction in such a scenario is that the person steps aside. But in this case, the same person stays still as if nothing happened.

They are so engrossed in the movie or TV series they are watching that they don't even realize what's happening around! All are filled with anguish, the frustration that builds inside due to the unsatisfactory life they are living is vented out in these situations.

I still remember a person I met. He was so busy in a call that he didn't realize that he was pushing me. As soon as we sat, he uttered, 'Strange'. The point I would like to mention is that he didn't make any eye contact or so. I asked him, 'what is so strange?'

An argument started and he uttered something, I uttered something. Later he said, you know I am the commisioner, blah blah. I felt amused and pity at the same time for him. I simply said, 'if you are the commissioner, you should carry a board citing the same so that nobody dares come close to you. Moreover, If you are a commissioner, Government didn't provide you a conveyance? Why the hell are you traveling in public transport?'

He was numb for some time and then he stepped down on the very next station. What's the point of such an argument? Nothing! Only to satisfy his ego, he started the argument. Though it was short-lived, still it gave me a lesson that never to argue with any person as they are senseless and numb to everything and anything around them.

The cycle goes from common sense to nonsense and I am afraid that most of us are going in this direction only!

'Welcome to Melbourne' a voice echoed as the plane landed at the Melbourne airport. There was a hustle and bustle as the passengers started removing their luggage from the cabin compartment. Pankhuri was delighted. She performed all the formalities of arrival, claimed her luggage, hired a taxi and left for the hotel. She had to stay in a hotel for first few days till all the formalities for her admission at the university were completed and the hostel allocated to her. She reached the hotel at around 10 in the morning. A blonde man with blue eyes, wearing a Grey suit who sat at the reception welcomed her. 'Welcome to the Melbourne Marriot, Ma'am. Here is your room card.' He said giving a swipe card to her. 'Thank you, Could you please arrange someone to fetch my luggage to the room?' she asked importantly. 'Sure!' he said.

I wish this night stayed....

Cold breeze grazing my feet Maybe it's an act so folly But my heart skipped a beat Surrounded by sheer melancholy Your whispers echoing in my ears Its difficult to see with Eyes welling up with tears Heart aching in writhe Winds changed the direction again Waiting for this since quite long No more I can abstain Come let's dance to the song Beneath the open sky Beside you I laid Now don't say bye I wish this night stayed...
