Sitting under a tree near a pond, I was exhausted after all my duties. A thought crossed my mind that people think children’s lives are meant only for sake of academic success, and by getting them into a good school or college they would be deemed happy. But I ask a question, do any of them tell us who we are,what we are? Yes they do they give us a name, a surname, a house to live in and food to eat. But in the process, do we get a chance to explore ourselves? Are we able to find our very own selves? I say no, most people do not know themselves. They know what they are told they are. But are we just that? A person is like a pure stream of flowing water. We are guided in a reliable way to reach our destination and provide supply to a lot more. In this life,where everything is a race,a competition, can we not be a peaceful river flowing on our own, trying to decipher life? People will say this is irrational. But I say, we humans are not robots- our work is not to perform and serve, but to explore ourselves. I say we should spend less time studying our school books and more time understanding life. As we all know, we will end up in the dust. We tend to miss the summer winds, the relaxing life, the beauty of the ants making their way to a mysterious destination, the falling of the autumn leaves, the barking of dogs, the playful antics of a kitten,the chirping of crickets, but what we see is the speed of our car, the worst of the heinous crimes, the winning team and the richest person. But are the richest people the happiest? We need peace and satisfaction in our life to be happy. But we lose our life every single day- working like machines, trying to find happiness. And in the process of attaining the sweet fruits of labour in your life, we end up losing for yet another time. ~sid.
