As a Child !!

As a Child one enjoys life so much without the burden of anything on his/her shoulders. There is no tension of jobs , responsibilities towards family members , adjustments with spouse , no tensions or calculations of EMI's and bank loans.

Although as a Child one thinks that being old or young is much beneficial. There is no homework , no school , there is money and one can dominate and scold the younger ones.

The grass always looks greener on the opposite side.

The friends or schoolmates during childhood have a different approach replaced by professional rivalry in the older stages. There is shyness to express ourselves , lies and straight faces to resrve our feelings inside unlike that in the childhood when we would cry often in public.

This growing up is painful. It takes a long time to realise that we have suddenly grown up and our parents are no longer responsible for our deeds......

I am afraid of growing up more and facing the old age... Yes honestly I am. When I see my grandma ill and dependent just like the child would be dependent on his mom. I am afraid of getting old.

Sorry State !!


 
I had a very tiring day today. I went to Khidderpore hastings for booking my promotional exams related my job. The whole process of booking is quite lengthy although improved from the past. However , its far from where I live and on my way back home I was really tired. I board a bus that directly comes to my home stoppage.
It was not crowded and I have got a seat unlike when I went in the morning in the office hours. Hardly one gets to stand and it’s a terrible feeling with no other convenient and inexpensive options. On midway my attention was drawn by the the conversation of a poor lady with a new born baby in her hand and another girl child of about 6 yrs. The girl child had a school bag with her and the mother had a bigshopper bag full of her clothes and other belongings. She was alone without any other male member or other member of the family. Through her conversations I came to the conclusion that nobody in her family was bothered how she will manage with her bags and child and had left her alone to travel. Other ladies present were cursing her family members. The baby was crying out of hunger after few moments and she was all helpless as she was seating facing to the other passengers and could not breastfeed the baby. The conductor mockingly told her to feed the baby. I felt so disgraceful . Another lady offered her a window seat. After exchanging seats she fed the baby somehow. I wanted to help her with the luggage while boarding down the bus. However she got help from a couple as they got down at the same stoppage . They had helped her with the luggage.
It only strikes to me that so many people are living life like this. I don’t know what to comment , how to help or what to say. I only realised that my tiring feeling disappeared somewhere.

Football World Cup Craze

As you all know that the football world cup is on. And the football fever starts all the worldwide every 4 years like the leap year event. Its the ultimate madness that runs among the most and even within people who are not a regular audience of the league matches or who are not updated with the names and skills of different upcoming players. Those are the people like me who all of a sudden after 4 years of exile come back with an exclusive passion of soccer lover. They regain what they have missed all these years. Suddenly you find new music videos related to football., you find all the advertisements relating them to the new craze. Suddenly you find flags and posters of different countries in the roads and the playgrounds full of football teams. It like a FESTIVAL in INDIA. Suddenly waking up at odd hours ( Specially this year as it is in Brazil which is 10.5 hrs behind our time) , is not a problem amongst all the daily jobs and routine. Suddenly it feels like cheering for something in which my own country is not even involved. Its an unique togetherness or unity of different people of different places supporting maybe a same team. So many miles away from Brazil , I am a childhood fan of that country. Some are fans of Germany , Argentina as well.
  
 Every year football world cup is unpredictable. Here the smallest countries play like wild horses and even the champions of the last year get rejected in the first qualifying rounds. We only look forward to a dream when our own country , India , will play the world cup with such outstanding skills and techniques. Maybe its just a dream . OR may be someday this unpredictability works positive for INDIA. Keeping fingers crossed !!
