Aghast I Stand – The Reality Of Today’s World

Aghast I stand

Aghast I stand by seeing the glee in the eyes of my so called relatives, which clearly reflected the image of the dollars rolling in it.  Never been so strongly admired, never been so softly spoken, never been hugged so tightly, and never been taken so seriously.  Yes, I returned back from theU.S. today and the world has changed for me.  Everything appears so new.  Unsure if these were the same people whom I knew in my earlier life, because they appear so much different. 

Never caring and never sharing people suddenly started pouring in compliments on my achievements as the news has spread of my success much before my arrival.  More than success it was the dollars that I have earned over the years have been the talk of the locale.  In my earlier life, while struggling for money, no one ever showed up and now especially the front lines were crowded by the ones who always said I am good for nothing, shouting out praises. 

I felt as if it was not me who was ever important to them, but rather this success and the money that I have now are.  But what if I lose these fames, a blatant answer would be they would fall back to their usual earlier self.  A self-realizing moment, where I understood that in this ever changing world the value of a human has fallen a scapegoat to the currency.   You are not judged as a human, but by the worth of money you carry.

What a world has this become, where we have a price tag to everything and value nothing.  We know the cloth brands but not our neighbors.  We got educated, but never got knowledge.  We pretend to know everything, but understand nothing.  Advanced technologically, but have not understood a thing about our own selves.  Reached for the stars, but never could reach out for someone in need.  Well who am I to talk all about this, because when I question myself on similar grounds, I somewhat seem identical to others.

But I understand one thing; I can choose to be different.  It won’t be easy, but no body promised it would be, so I decide to do my part.  Whatever small or big bit possible I will.  I expect nothing but just pray that we hold hand of each other in a quest of bringing back love, harmony, health, and happiness back into each others life.  

I am committed.  Will you come along with me?
