Deprivation

Only few things in this world make it worth living – beauty of nature, music, and the love of your child. And the irony is that we\’re stuck within walls, inside cubicles without being able to enjoy any of the three – nature, music or your child\’s company – trying to eke out a living that does not leave life worth living. We\’re living in just thoughts of these beautiful things: company of child in the evening, smell of a flower someday and FM radio in the car. We try to snatch \’quality time\’ from our \’scheduled automaton\’ of a life. We feel guilty both ways – at home and in the office, and along the way too. We look forward to the next weekend from this weekend. The weekend seems to be the sanctuary where all our troubles and all our fears will be resolved. The weekend is the place where we will be reunited with our loves and loved ones. But weekend is the only time when you get to pay your bills, fix your car, do your accounts, fix the broken stuff around the home. And then there\’s just enough time left for you to catch up on some sleep to compensate for the entire week\’s deprivation.
