Same thoughts prevailing in my mind..but was wondering how to frame them in words!!! Now here is it..
Yes you got it right. This post is going to be all about money and its value in this world. Though money isn’t everything but everything needs money. Without money you cannot move a single step ahead. Though, it gives purpose, value, significance to life. I see beggars on the roads. at the same time I also see all the high class spendthrifts living in posh areas, flaunting their style in a carefree manner in the malls of metro cities. I find myself in awe how money drives people in every field of life. How money plays the key role in a person’s living and lifestyle. The beggars are seen in that condition due to money. Posh people are seen in that level again due to money. Middle class people struggle to live their life and just struggle for money day in and day out. From dawn to dusk, everyone ‘s move has the single most significant motive of every single step they take- Money. Money drives crazy to the people also who are into burglary, dacoity and all such nuisance creators in the society.
Again, Money also plays a key role in matrimony. One of the first things that come to bride’s parents is ..ladka kitna kamaata hai!? LADKE WAALE KITNE SAMPATI WAALE HAIN!? Blahh blahh! Without money, probably I could not have been able to type these words on money right now. Without money, probably my parents could not be able to make me able to type these words.
But I wonder why such basic things are also dependent on money? Why money is everything? Without money I cannot travel to places even if I love visiting places..That needs a huge cost to be spent. Again at the same time, I also want to donate to orphanages, adopt at least 2 children and take up their whole responsibility, donate to the street beggars some clothes, food items at least during weekends, build toilets for the slum areas at my home town. But where do I get money for all this? Also I want to lead a good decent life: good house, a vehicle, etc etc. But again MONEY!!!! UFFF!!!! The source for every damn thing!! I think I will go crazy thinking about all this and not being able to materialize. Being a human being I personally believe in “Vasudeiva Kutumbakam”.
But then I feel pity for people in remote areas who still do not have their villages connected with roads to towns or cities, lack of proper transportation system, education for their children, electricity facility, etc. I feel really bad when the picture of old woman walking miles bare foot flashes in front of my eyes, even if just for a moment. I want to do something for these people!! Alas!! Again the reason behind this is Money!!! On either of the side! Though I agree government is on its way to eradicate all these grass root level issues. But I as an individual too want to contribute to this! Arrgghhh!! Moneyyyy!!!!
I wonder how this basic feeling of equality among all human beings lacks in human beings itself!! But then, again the reason is Money!!! Dear Money, Why are you everything?
Done with studies? At least with Masters..WHAT NEXT!?
Whether or not I should get married, NOW? How to go about this marriage thing? Time to settle down or to take some more time? What if things move the other way round? How to tackle things and more importantly the emotional self..that would be the greatest part ever that only self can understand deeply. Blood will be found split in the battleground. What about all those uneasiness, anxiety, fear. That feeling will be firmly unshaken.It will be AGONISING.
How to go about meeting the expectations of parents? How to manage and bridge the generation gap between parents & us? How to hit a six without hurting them? What about the personal interests, goals & motives? How to figure out what language can be used in order to make them understand?
In all this process the pathetic part is how money plays the key role. Without it, moving an inch forward is just next to impossible. Again its a fact that after a certain period it feels pathetic to be dependent on your family. Its more complicated if you are a dad-less child and mom being a home maker. Speak of any competitive exam you require huge fund to find yourself through it. And if you step into a bottom-notch any private sector..compromising with the kind of vacancy they need it to be fulfilled not something the kind of job you want to get into. Why? Coz you want to be independent of your family and at the same time need money. And after a period of time you will simply end up feeling Dude!! Where am I? What exactly am I doing?
While you still find yourself having inclination towards higher degree..But then the worst part is once you taste & experience self-earned money..you just find yourself addicted to it. Unless you are an exception.
Stuck somewhere in between this.
The bestest part ever is FIND yourself the luckiest one if you have the most supportive boyfriend! EVER! Probably he is going to be the pathbreaker for me!
