Good Old Days Case 1: A small kid , innocence personified from his face, sitting on the rod of his father's bicycle in the hot sun at the railway crossing, waits for minutes for train to arrive. The train arrives, very anxiously moves his head left to right, either trying to read the train start and destination station, or trying to count the number of coaches the engine is pulling. He loves it.
New Generation Case 1: A unhappy man , stressed visible on face, stand at the railway crossing in his air conditioned car, soft music being played on the high class ( you may read cost!) music player, waits impatiently for the train to arrive. Every second increases the stress level, watches time every second (as if that will make train come fast). Train arrives and he is irritated by the sound produced by the train passing by. He is more irritated, angry at fellow overtaking him once the railway crossing is opened.
Good Old Days Case 2: Small Kid reaches school and finds that his friend has not been able to do the home work. It is the same friend who stands second on the class. He knows if he finishes home work, then this kid will loose his rank. Small kids, shares his notes and asks him to copy the homework from his note book. Heart of both is filled with love. No hatred, no ill feeling. Both smiles, teacher appreciates both.
New Generation Case 2: A man is working on important assignment and is stuck on one problem. Unhappy man (His friend ) who has been with him in all official ceremonies, meetings knows how to get him out of it. Unhappy man does not help him, because he knows that if man finishes his work, then he will get a promotion, a higher salary and lot of benefits. At the end, unhappy man does not get anything, man looses his promotion. Both hates each other but always shows love ( I call it fake love) towards each other.
Scenario like this is so common in today's world. Today people who have life in them are not connected to each other through any of the five senses. They need a medium like phone, email or an application to connect. Today we find and seek for definition of love , but in good old days we just exhibited and shared love.
Love a feeling is lost in our generation. I ask you all to define what is love. So answer might be "to be happy". So can we be happy, by having more money, more appreciation, more promotions or just enjoying a small thing like a smile on your face, your colleagues face or your relatives face.
Let us bring those old days back. Let us start from within our self. Let the happiness , love and smile be shared.
