What do we actually pass on?
What is all this chaos about?
The race, the anxiousness, the worry, the concern…
Had read when I was a child
That time is like a wheel…
Indeed it is.
We are born to grow up
Grow up enough to join a school
(These days first the Play school and then the formal academic ones)
Then we pass out to join a college
Then we acquire degrees to enter the Daddy of all Rat Races
the Monotonous and Viscous Race of Jobs
Working our bottoms off from Mondays to Fridays in pursuit of the weekend
(Life becomes worse when you have 6 days working)
And then, on a larger front
Working our bottoms off from Thirty Firsts to Firsts in pursuit of the salary
(Life becomes worse when your salary day is on 7th – worst when the company is lazy about it)
So, coming back to the point.
What do we pass on?
Why do we reproduce?
For this “ideal” race!?
And wait, it does not end here.
Somewhere in your 20s comes the biggest blow of all
In disguise of a ceremony called MARRIAGE
You leave your home, your job, your community, family
Basically your entire identity to start the race from scratch
(however, these things happen to only the Devis not the Devtas)
My Question – WHY?
Why is it compulsory to pass this on
Why SHOULD we live the same routine
Why should we pass on the legacy of tiredness
Tiredness from monotony, from living up to others’ expectations
Tiredness from LIFE!!
