My blog title has been inspired for a fellow-blogger (Always Happy) friend’s titles. She has an unusual way of putting up important things in a light and easy manner. And so today when I was thinking of an apt title, I happened to use her technique.
While dropping my daughter for her classes yesterday, which I’ve been doing for more than 6 months now, but some things strike you late, I passed a house, where there is an Audi, a Lexus and a Porsche, parked side by side a speed boat. Here I would like to remind you my friends, its not so usual in Indore to have so many top end models in one house, so you can imagine how filthy rich this person would be, but then his next door neighbor with whom he shares boundary wall is a, you may not have guessed it, a slum dweller, who works with a monkey and a street dog to earn his daily wage!
My daughter’s school is a supposed to be amongst the best in the state, but in its back drop, there is a area which is house to a small group of homeless people, for whom education is a far away dream, the only things that they pray for are food and a decent pair of clothing.
In life we often come across such stark disparities, which at times also make me feel guilty, I don’t know why. But then I see the other types and I also feel jealous, how she can have more than I have. I don’t know if it happens with everyone or not, but when I’m in a good mood, I see the lesser ones, but when I’m in a bad one, I always see people who are better off then me.
Though I have the sensibilities to understand that on the ladder of life, the rung that I’am standing on is not on any of the extreme ends, , but there are always things that someone will have that you would be longing for. It could be anything, material, emotional or physical. For my daughter, it’s the baby monkey she sees everyday on her way to school, she even asked me why she can’t have a monkey in her house too. For me its emotions. I think love can conquer over everything, if there is enough love and acceptance around you nothing in this world can let you be sad or low.
