A leaf you would like…. especially if you have moved for a better life, away from your parents, grandparents and all those you hold close & dear.
Today somebody told me that ‘I was using there “space” in the world!!! Because their community was situated here before we tagged along’, it instantaneously made me go bonkers in my curiously wired brain, & I ended up giving the person the ‘littlest’ peice of my mind🎧.
My great-grand father moved to the place where I live currently and the whole of my family has slowly drifted away from our homeland to this buzzing city,One uncle after another, for studies or work…They all supported each other and made a home for us kids to have a better life in. We didn’t understand the struggle back then, but we do, now.
So it sucks to hear that “we took from SOME to provide for US“, all the while when we were actually working towards making life a little more liveable and doing a great job at keeping our heads held.
I am proud to have been born in UP, and even more proud of my great-grandpa to have migrated to Mumbai.We work as hard to feed ourselves, so why the black eye ?
This post started out angrily but then midway my phone notified me of Casey Neistat’s unwatched video about the current life crises in Somalia …. and I can’t say no to Casey!
[Watch: “We have 10 days to get a million dollars” on youtube]
The video just reaffirmed, How much one could affect in betterment➕ or in devastation➖.
Your choice. Whatever you choose. The coming generation will judge.
