we know all ..yet....

We know that many friends fail to help when you are in real need. Yet we expect and get depressed every time they don't.

We know that people value you in this world only on the basis of those "printed papers". Yet we (I)
speak of happiness being the ultimate.

We know relatives do not share the same relationship with you as they used to earlier on. Yet we feel they would.

We know that people like to be with just the beautiful (outwardly) people. Yet we is at heart.

We know excelling academically means a lot. Yet we say what if we aren't able to do so?

We know people won't be humble enough to come and accept their mistake. Yet we try to make them understand.

But I also know "oru naalil naadhan enne villichu ekantha teerathe kondupoogum" [one day we all 'll be in the ultimate peace (dead)]

and yet we  ......kill....quarrel...think of only ourselves (be selfish).. hurt....others......

This is such a great post Joyce. It just shows what a bunch of hypcrites we all r! No one can deny that they dun belong to any of those groups u mentioned here. We r all guilty of either all of em or some of em.

**We know people won't be humble enough to come and accept their mistake. Yet we try to make them understand.

That is so true! Thats just what I told a friend today. I told him that I dun expect ppl to u'stand me anymore. :) cos Im sick of trying to make others u'stand. It just doesnt work in a world where sometimes I refuse to u'stand others.

So it's best not to expect at all.

coz we r human beings-born wid errors-wen we realize the truth,we are no longer human-we r spirits.

swati said...

Godd's just that Humuns think of themselves and have lost or losing slowly their moral ideolaigies......


Remeber not to take life serious...It's not permanant....:)

Saranya said...

Superb post PJ. Each and every point was so true! Its very sad of humans to fight for nothing that is permanent in this world.
And I wonder if anyone realises that and even if they realise, they keep on doing all what you have listed. Human mind you know!!

Cяystal said...

Maybe because living in peace without any quarrels, makes life too simple, and less people <3 simplicity.
Quarrels at a smaller level, between friends and family help them to grow, but when the attain a bigger platform and sucks, cos innocent ppl are killed all in the name of deities and all tht..this probably happens cos some people have no faith in peace..or brotherhood.

Amal Bose said...

what uve said here is absolutely true..
there is only a very very very few people who actually does these good deeds.. n at the same time there is only a very very very few people who does the opposite..
majority lies somewhere in the middle..

We know that many friends fail to help when you are in real need. Yet we expect and get depressed every time they don't. <<< So well said Priya! I guess 'expecting' things lead to disappointment... almost always...

Prashant Sree said...

Nice post and a bit introspecting one ! But yes, the world does seems harsh though there are few kindred souls around. As always Optimism is the best attitude to hope for good things.

Harshita said...

Nanhi Pari,

I will not hinder your growth as a person by suggesting sumthing here or answering this one... What I wud say is : Experience it... completely n absolutely... This is Life... and on every step you will grow more and learn more.

Love you kiddo

Lena said...

Very thoughtful, dear PJ. You know how someone said .. sometimes we expect more from others because we are willing to do that much for them. Expectations are a part of human nature, you cant suppress them, but what you can do is live your life at your best so that nobody would say that you didnt meet their expectations :)

Quest said...

My thoughts have been killed yesterday activating my funny bone exponentially... :D

I dont expect so no depression :D

I am contemplating to takeover India's largest 'printed papers'=newspaper so that I can increase my brand value

Different relatives share different relations otherwise it would have called mama1, mama2 instead for mamas, mamis, chachas, chachis, cousins :D

I dont have a heart but I am sure that my brain is beautiful :D

If not able to=try again :)

I am the judge here, I alone can proclaim the offenders to be guilty of their mistakes :D

Dead? Everyone dead? What would I do then? The problems of immortality.....Huh :-?

Pallav said...
