“…..And the white Mercedes whooshed by me while I just sat there, doing nothing…..”
Life sometimes tends to be very boring, especially when you are in the growing stages like childhood and teen hood. People keep saying that is the deciding phase of your life, and it indeed is but why so boring! It’s like our whole life is a timetable, the same boring schedule over and over again. In school, you have a timetable filled with the boring, hated and loved subjects with little hints of enjoyment in the form of recesses and P.E. periods. Why should life run on the same basis?! The school and tuition are the boring periods with pinches of joy in the form of outings with friends and family.
Why? I question everyone who does not notice that we are turning into robots, controlled by a virtual timetable. I question those who are turning us to robots, these colleges, schools, institutes.
I say we stop. Stop today. It’s time for some change. Change our lifestyle building techniques. Why have classrooms fixated in a building, in front of a board? Time to change this stereotype. Knowledge is not only acquired in a room with doors and windows. It is what is around us; nature, people, humanity, environment and everything.
We need to leave the binds of school and college and fly to the outside world, a world where we will be growing in, a world which will hold our future. We need to prepare ourselves for the tomorrow and not just dwell on the past, learn from it and move on.
Every caterpillar has to crack out of the cocoon, to emerge as a beautiful butterfly. No caterpillar stays in the cocoon forever….
