Thinking long of what my next blog post should be about, the only thing that crossed my mind was,
‘What would people like to read?’
‘Will I able to please them with what I write?’
‘Is my writing parallel to the social norms?’ and………… Blah, blahh, blahhhh!!!
Like seriously, now that I give it a thought, I realise my entire 20 years of life has gone in this direction!
They taught me to verbalize, so that I listen what they command.
They taught me to read, so that I understand what is already said.
We have been pushed from one square to another, and are expected ‘TO FIT IN’!
The family, the school, the college, the society….and every possible boundary that is lined up to not make us grow, instead tell us— that’s it. This is where you have to stop. This is what is socially and eugenically correct! But in this ambit, it’s more about them than you.
It’s what ‘THE SOCIETY’ wants…….
I am supposed to go to school because that is what everyone does. Who cares if I want to be painter, or a philosopher?
I am supposed to get good grades, as out there it’s a marathon of excellence. We don’t target on being excellent, but run behind the idea of what is shaped as being excellent. Because it’s what ‘the society’ wants.
I am supposed to do arrange marriage, because love is literally a sin! Like its not a big deal if a girl has to sleep with a complete stranger, who might hit her, rape her, abuse her and do all the other inappropriate things. However, marrying a guy you love and who loves you back is a bigger crime. Because it’s what ‘the society’ wants.
Who is this effin SOCIETY???????
Why am I obliged to it???????
There is this bunch of cynical people not in their whole mind, who claim to represent what we say today, is ‘the society’. Although, what we fail to understand is that, it’s you and me- the society!
They tell us, we do it. They mark our path, we follow it. They turn on the music; we do the freaky monkey-dance.
But, not anymore. We need to replace the coma with a fullstop.
Say a NO when necessary. Be more than a puppet, and an instrumental part of comorade than just sitting, waiting to follow. Instead take the reins in your hand and a control of your life.
“One must shed the bad taste of wanting to agree with many.”Good” is no longer good when one’s neighbor mouths it. And how should there be a “common good”! The term contradicts itself: whatever can be common always has little value. In the end it must be as it is and always has been: great things remain for the great, abysses for the profound, nuances and shudders for the refined, and, in brief, all that is rare for the rare.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche.
