Did we need all this?

In the darkness of the night, my mind looms.

It goes places, it imagines things. It gives me a few answers in return for more questions.

One question that hit me recently, was ‘Did we really need all this?’

I’m sure there was a time, long long long long long ago, where none of this existed. The houses we live in, the buses we travel in or the computer I’m blogging from.

All that was there was our mother, the nature, and us.

I’m sure we lived in harmony. Till some son of a bitch decided to make fire.

Okay, maybe, fire was important. We could have stopped there? Nope.

Let’s use this to make new shit. Little did he know that he was creating a monster. A monster, so big and stupid, that it would engulf it’s own mother some day.

Look around you. You think we human beings were meant to live this way? In these houses?

I don’t think so.

We belong out in the wild. Because the wild is just a philosophy created by us to stop ourselves from being who we really are.

Try going to a river, or a forest, some day. Away from the hustle bustle of a city.

Somewhere, where you have fresh air to breathe and green grass to sleep. Let nature take you, for a day. You’ll realise what we’re doing is wrong. What is happening around the world is wrong. Everything, everything that we’re doing, is so completely wrong.

We’ve bound ourselves to useless things. Education, Jobs, Society blah blah blah. You think this is good?

If so, why is everything falling apart? Why do we have so so many new diseases? Why is there global warming? Why are species going extinct? Why is there so much wrong in the world? Why? Just why?

We, as human beings, fucked up. Big time.

Sadly, it is too late to repair it.

But there is nothing wrong in questioning yourself. Were we right in doing this to the planet that raised us?

Did we need all this?

Online shopping- An addiction of its kind

Online shopping, since its inception has turned the world up-side-down (atleast in my case). I was never a person who was into shopping, lungs in my air and loads of food in my stomach was more than enough to keep me going. Then, I joined a job, got some cash on my debit card, and came across a thing called online shopping, on which I have wasted more than 70 percent of my 6 months salary! Strange isn’t it?!

The flipkart Monster! Not that i dont like it, just that i am spending too much money on it!

It’s become very weird for my friends. A guy who normally never spoke anything apart from food and porn at times, has now started talking about online deals. Often, this has led to awkward straight-face encounters with my friends.

It’s amazing how these people trick you! The reason you shop is because you do not have to go outside, waste time and shop. It is available (as they say for anything and everything related to the computer) at just a CLICK! 😀

You are going through random websites, you come across an advertisement that is giving you headphones at a 20 percent discount. These discount boards on the road do not affect you much, but they play havoc on the system. Suddenly you realize that a need for getting those headphones is created in you. (Despite have 4 pairs already). You also realize subsequently that you have money in you account. Bang Bang bidum bum bhush! You buy them!

Monster number 2 :p

A peaceful day where you were at home, browsing the net with no intentions of spending your money, you end up spending it. This is what online shopping is all about!
