Let’s begin by saying I’m not a writer. I’m not a thinker. And if you follow my blog, you pretty well know, I am not a good blogger either.
So this one’s a serious one. If you’re here for fun, THOU SHALL NOT PASS!
Over the years (that is excluding the years I though Lesbians were what people from Lebanon were called, which roughly means over the last five years), I have noticed that human beings have some sort of obsession with chronology.
Everything in life, has to be in an order. I mean there are some things that have to follow a chronology, like being born, then growing old before eventually dying. Unless you are THAT guy from the Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
But then, why do we need to have an order for everything? Why study first and then go exploring your field?
Why marry first and then decide to have a family? Why not have a family? settle in, then have a marriage?
Why do people have to judge you when you eat your rice with rasam first and then eat sambar/dal during an Andhra meal?
I am sure most of my questions would come across as pretty stupid ones. But that is purely because an order has strictly been put into our head. “This is how the world works and you have no option but to follow it, or we kill you.” *cough cough* Galileo *cough*.
Who are these people who set the rules? Who are these people who force us to live our lives like a proper Rajshree Productions movie?
I don’t want to live it that way. I want it to be like Pulp Fiction. In an order I like and in a way that pleases me. And if it doesn’t please you, then fuck off, because a few years from now, you’ll realise it. But it’ll be too late by then.
PS: This is not a rant. My parents did not force me into engineering. I love what I do. This blog is just because I cannot digest the fact that many people cannot do what they love because of social convention and this entire chronology of life that we’ve created.
