The Days

The Days

......Year by year passed by and we all become busy in our life.

But we all still remember those days. 

Yes, I am talking about school days. 

The nice and beautiful days......


The days,

When we felt bad when anyone stopped us doing anything, 

When we felt bad getting compared with neighbor’s child,

When we felt bad not getting the things others had.


The days,

When we had a restriction of not playing outside after 7 pm,

When we had only DD National as channel,

When we didn't have all desired items, we asked for.


The days, 

When we used to go to tailor shop to get the clothes stitched. 

When we used to get a song recorded in cassettes. 

When whatever we wanted to eat, got prepared at home only.


Now are the days, I

Do online shopping for my daughter but may be, that togetherness of going together is missing.

Download song or listen YouTube buy may be, that satisfaction is missing.

Order food online, but may be, that taste is missing.


Why so?

Why we are moving towards such a materialistic life?

Why we are compromising on actual happiness?


It's time to think!!!

Why we do things in the way as if we know how many years we are going to live?


Let' start living a simple and happy life as most uncertain thing in this world is "LIFE".
